“A Slice of Paradise” Reviewed July 8, 2011
My wife and I pride ourselves on finding towns and places to stay that are a bit off the map– where we can feel less like tourists and more like visitors– somewhere where we can experience a place’s culture and get a sense of what it is like to live there. San Pancho is the perfect example of such a place and Roberto’s Bungalows is THE place to stay when visiting! Does strolling down SAFE, QUIET cobblestone streets filled with with roosters, kids, little dogs, fish taco vendors, fallen mangoes, and real homegrown townspeople sound good to you?, How about laying out on a AMAZING white sand beach with no competition for space and NO HASSLE from annoying vendors? If so San Pancho is the place for you! Does being only two blocks from the beach and a half block from the main “road” in town sound good? how about escaping the late day sun to an incredibly peaceful semi-private courtyard with a refreshing pool (its bigger than it seems in the pictures, has a deep end and everything) lined by tropical flowers and plants? What about having all this for a fraction of what you will pay at a mega resort in PV? Then Roberto’s is the place to stay. Oh, and on top of all that Jane and Earl are the BEST hosts– so warm and welcoming, will help you navigate the town and the environs and will provide you with great stories and conversation if you want as well. It was like a home away from home. Thank you Jane and Earl!!!!! P.S. San Pancho is SAFE SAFE SAFE. my wife and i were a bit hesitant to travel to Mexico given all the bad press but were so happy to find that San Pancho is a sleepy little village and we felt extremely safe there- on the beach, walking around at night, etc. it is small enough that after just a few days you will recognize townspeople and vice-versa. Don’t let the bad press that has nothing to do with this area stop you from visiting San Pancho! Room Tip: We checked out all 5 rooms and they are all great and are fully stocked. Roberto’s is the biggest and most private. •Stayed June 2011, traveled as a couple Come and hang out in San Pancho…..it is really Paradise!
