Amor Boutique Hotel is ideally located on the south end of Sayulita beach; less than a five minute walk from town center, yet perfectly secluded from the town’s hustle and bustle. Amor Boutique Hotel is your private sanctuary in Sayulita, honoring both our oceanfront location and nature on a beautifully lush hillside offering spectacular ocean views. Some of our villas with the most breathtaking ocean views in all of Sayulita are located high up the hill. Our founder and designer Rod Ingram not only masterfully designed every villa but magically created unique pathways to each one with artisan curved stairways enhanced by hand picked beach stones along the way.

That said, please note that we have no elevator and that some of our villas are located quite high up on the hillside. Should you prefer to stay on the ground level, we also have villas with no or minimal stairs. Villas higher up the property (those with the most spectacular ocean and bay views) include La Gran Villa, Villa Paraiso,  Villa RomanceVilla SirenitaVilla Besito DulceVilla Mi Primer BesoVilla OlitoVilla Mi AmorVilla la Paz, and Villa Arboles.
