What makes El Jardin so special is the heart and sense of freedom that flowed out of every moment of our stay. Lots of other people have written about its amenities, so I'll focus on the "small moments" and perceptions that made this place. First of all, its location at the edge of Yelapa's "U" shaped geography makes it feel... More

Where to start? The clean ocean air? The brilliant flowers spilling out from the jungle that meets the water's edge? The multitude of butterflies flitting around, or the iguanas sunning themselves on the same rock every day? Or how about the total lack of cars and traffic? What a dream. The Eagle's Nest room in El Jardin was just what... More

I love this special spot! Perfectly situated on the water, with charming thatched palapas, and a tranquil, comfortable large open common space, well equipped with everything one could need to enhance their experience, including snorkeling gear, kayaks, hammocks, ping pong and really comfy couches, all open to the magnificent views of the clear, aqua bay. The icing on the cake... More

I don't think I can say enough about this great gem of a place in Yelapa. My husband and I stayed at El Jardin for 4 nights. It's right by the water and about a minute walk to Playa Isabel. We chose the Eagle's Nest for our room and it was fabulous. It's located almost right above the water with... More

My one week at El Jardin was very refreshing and relaxing. The main room/kitchen area is open air and very beautifull and nice to be in. Wonderfull light in the kitchen in the morning! I think the open area, that is covered in sand, is one of the nicest spot in yelapa. I stayed in Bamboo and it was confortable... More

I brought a small group here for a yoga retreat. The setting absolutely can't be beat. It is right on the ocean, just a short walk or boat ride to town. Chrissi was a wonderful host. She worked really hard and cooked the group 2 delicious meals every day. She also took care of arranging all our excurions and special... More

A business meeting required I be in Guadalajara (GDL), so I searched for an off the beaten path option on the closest beach, to piggy-back a short vacation onto the business trip. Boston had 100 inches of snow this winter and the chance to get away was alluring. Puerto Vallarta (PVR) is a 50 minute flight from GDL, a 4... More

El Jardin is beautifully and thoughtfully designed. Yelapa is gorgeous, low key and lovely. This is a terrific vacation for people who want to get away from city life and live simply. Personally, I enjoyed having an iguana hanging out in our bathroom! El Jardin and Yelapa are gracious hosts and I hope to return one day.

We enjoyed our stay but were travelling with our kids and felt out of place. We were constantly worried that (as they are small children) they would disturb <the peace and quiet>. It is definitely an interesting concept that I would enjoy alone or as a couple. Was not cheap for the level of service and amenities offered.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Jardin is an eco-friendly garden retreat with the ocean on one side and the jungle on the other. Beautiful gardens surround the open air sleeping palapas. The communal area is open anytime, where guests can mingle, relax, read, dine, lay in a hammock or play one of the many games provided. There are recycling guidelines on-site and the manager will introduce you to the communal spaces at the start of your visit. The common areas are great way to meet people and relax. We have a great local cook who is available for meals and often dinners will be arranged for guests. Our casas are a "labor of love". We have worked hard to get the casas to the state they are in and continue to work to make improvements to make them better and more comfortable for you. ... more   less
