More Room Types

Relaxation and romance await at Matlali Hotel, located on its own nature reserve on a hill overlooking La Cruz. Kick back in a villa-style suite, some with full kitchens and private balconies. 

Matlali Hotel is not an oceanfront property; however, there is a free shuttle that transports guests to and from the Eva Mandarina Beach Club, 10 minutes from the hotel. At the beach club, dine on ceviche and other fresh seafood, or try a number of water sports. Should you choose to stay on property, guests can bask beside the two large infinity pools or indulge in a treatment at Makawe Spa.

We'd suggest renting a car for ease of travel throughout the area. Guests can scuba dive in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle or explore a number of charming villages nearby. Sayulita and Nuevo Vallarta are a 25- to 45-minute drive from the hotel.
