We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It is a rustic resort but the fresh cool breeze, sound of waves outside, candlelight dinner in the sand created a most memorable experience. Narda, our waitress at the restaurant was always smiling and very accommodating. Our room was unit #24 and had a 7 foot boulder separating the shower and toilet, which for...

I was excited to share this unique hotel on the shore of Yelapa with my wife. But what a disappointment to find how neglected and shabby this once amazing boutique hotel has become. The front desk staff on three separate shifts could not have cared less to see us. In fact we simply intruded into what else they were doing...

Still quaint and beautiful though it badly needs some TLC. The location is incredible, but nearly everything is on the verge of falling apart or rusting through. Walk carefully and watch your step! Could be wonderful with some minor upgrades and basic maintenance.

My "sea view bungalow" was a filthy, bug infested nightmare. First - the filth. It's an open roof cabin by the beach - so it's fine that there would be some bugs or dust. However, it looked like no one had stepped inside for weeks, much less cleaned. My bed was literally infested with bugs (see photo). There were dead...

Excellent place to spend time away from it all. Away from high rise hotels, cars, noise. Nothing much to do other than look at the sea, drink margaritas on the beach and eat very good fish. Water great for snorkeling.

Pretty awesome place. Unique. Rooms have sensational views. Pool is awesome. Beach is right there. You'll hear the surf all night long. Our room was spacious and the windows opened wide. A big patio too. Don't expect to be pampered with AC, TV, In-Room refrigerator, etc.. These rooms have thatched roofs. They're airy. The bathroom was fine. Yelapa is HOT....

Tho by going to Yelapa you accept the fact of a rustic stay, Lagunitas does not offer the basic amenities or cleanses. The shower and room were infested by spiders and bugs. If you are ok with the stay, I recommend spending only one night there as there is joy much to do in Yelapa and the prices of all...
