We had an awesome vacation at Majahua. The staff were so friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The hotel is situated in a gorgeous, beach setting. Our room was called la puerta because the beautiful, oversized doors opened up to an ocean view. The food was delicious and I had the best huevos racheros for breakfast. This quaint hotel is away from the hustle, but a short walk into the town of Chacala. We can't wait to go back!

Muchas Gracias to Jose, Carmen, canine JoseCarmelo + the whole Majahua family! After eight nights in the majesty of Majahua we are freshly back home in San Francisco, CA, USA refreshed + restored! Our family of five (difficult people aged tween to elder) enjoyed the purity of communing with nature in a manner that celebrates/shares the best of Mexico; hospitality authentically warm, stewardship of the rich local environs carefully executed and national culture firmly embedded in the climate. Aptly named by the multicultural Sorbonne-educated but down to earth proprietors, Majahua is the indigenous name for a local, ephemeral spring-blooming flower. Jose and Carmen take good care to ensure the attuned guest will be provided an experience with benefits long lasting. Rooms are crisp, clean and well appointed but not luxury. The noise from our suite was almost exclusively from the thick jungle/animal surroundings with the exception of crashing waves turned joyful beach-goers sometime after daybreak. After Christmas, the beach filled with Mexican families (almost all intergenerational) on holiday making for a festive feeling and providing the shyest toddler a panoply of playmate opportunities. The waves varied from very gentle to just enough to boogie-board. Hiking happens. High-maintenance, City folks unappreciative of nature up close or those hoping not to make efforts to communicate in the ligua franca (my dozen Spanish words were enough, daughter was gently encouraged/helped to grow her more developed Spanish skills:) may want to seek out the big chain hotel instead-(sadly our mom-pop hosts pay the same business fees as the Hyatt-one more reason not to sneak food in;) I understand now "silva" means jungle and jungle doesn't always respect man made structures... however creative (everything from Jose's crafted originally tiled, super-hot shower to Carmen's internationally exhibited photography displayed on grounds speaks to the thoughtfully curated climate). Do not expect sterile/sanitized rooms or pampered service.
Pack your swimsuit and prepare to be surprised by flora/fauna; a wake up call from fighting ceiling lizards, afternoon waves by breaching whales, bright exotic birds of paradise casually floating overhead & crazy looking insects enough to bring out the EO Wilson in anyone! Breakfast onsite was an excellent way to start the day. With the exception of a strong ceviche, great grilled Rib Eye, world-class guacamole & delightful Mezcal, the food is solid and the one area in need of a modest upgrade. Unfortunately, the breakfast was standard cosmopolitan fare and the menu overall not a shining example of the richness of Mexican cuisine (it helps that it is served lovingly al fresco). I would highly recommend this corner of paradise to anyone ready to shed the tech (while there is WIFI, the little screens do nothing to enhance the experience) and naturally submerge into warmth, salt and sea! Gracias, Merci + Thanks abundant to Majahua!

Room Tip: all rooms quiet & appropriate (for singles, couples & families alike).

Jose and his partner Carmen describe their Majahua Jungle retreat perfectly. It is obvious their dedication to preserving the eco-hideaway character of this hotel is sincere and whole hearted. We we're lodged in El Arbol, a room for two with huge king bed and large screened windows looking out to the jungle trees. It was simple with curving walls and interesting alcoves. The sunken shower and fantastical wash basin added Gaudi-esque appeal. The hotel staff were always eager to make our stay perfect. Jose and Carmen we're attentive hosts. The food was well cooked, very fresh and attractively plated and wines well chosen. As opposed to the nearby Beach resort Majahua is small and quiet with mysterious pathways and secluded zen patio areas to sit and read, meditate or just be at one with the ocean views, the birds and the tropical surroundings. This place is a wonder of cliff side engineering and should not be missed.

Great place! This is a lovely hotel situated in the jungle at a fair price point. It is one of my favorite places to go. The owners are friendly and great cooks, and the view of the ocean is unbeatable. Keep in mind that this is an eco-friendly property in the jungle, not the Hyatt, and you'll have 0 complaints.
