This is a great place, set on the edge of the Yelapa beach with a beautiful view of the cove and village. The cabanas are, as can be expected, a bit rustic, but kept very clean with a meticulous room service. The location of the place, the palm trees on the beach and flowering bushes, the peaceful vibe of their... More

The food was amazing, the beach was amazing, the margaritas were amazing!! Absolutely nothing not to like about this place. Our palapa sat just next to the surf and we had an outstanding view from our bed. Found a scorpion next to my pillow, so definitely be on the lookout for those. They are common in the area, so nothing... More

I went to Hotel Lagunita for a yoga retreat with 6 others. I had no idea what to expect. The water taxi ride was wild, especially after being on a plane for 8 hours. The bungalows were simple and clean. Two beds, a dresser, an open closet area made up the bedroom; the bathroom had a toilet, shower, and sink.... More

Enjoyed 7 days in an enchanted place: Hotel Lagunita with a beautiful beach, amazing food, friendly staff, romantic and clean palapas... You don't need anything else to experience paradise. Life slowed down and magic begun the moment I arrived... I can't wait to be back! P.S. By the way I had a hot water in the bathroom, Internet access and... More

Hotel Lagunita is the best place to stay on the beach in Yelapa! The people are friendly and the view is amazing! The palapas are very cute and the beach is right there. The beach is generally pretty mello with not too many people. This is a rustic place...not for everyone.

We stayed at Hotel Lagunita for 6 nights and I can't say enough about it! Amazing location on the beach as it was not crowded ever. The service from the restaurant was fantastic and all the servers were attentive and friendly. The food, breakfast, lunch and dinner were all great. They even had specials for superbowl Sunday as the game... More

My family (husband, daughter, son-in-law, grandson) and myself spent 10 nights at Hotel Lagunita just before Christmas.This was our first time in Yelapa. Since I had done all the planning I was quite relieved that everything turned out so splendidly. Our rooms (5 and 6) were perfect. Though all the beds had netting we never needed them. A gentle ocean... More

We stayed 3 nights in one of the oceanfront palapa's, one or 2 away from the pier (one spot water taxis land). Someone met us right at the pier and took us directly to our room, all of a 1 minute walk. Oceanfront palapa, seemed like a good location on the property, was private, people walking by are on a...

I was not offered to move to different room and they were anything but full. I've stayed there 2 previous trips to Yelapa and it was fabulous. Was told that the resturaunt and... More

this is the only place I've ever stayed when visiting Yelapa for overnights. Although they have spruced up the outside a bit since my last stay 4 years ago, they haven't addressed the inside of the charming bungalows. After 2 nights on some of the hardest beds I've ever slept on (and there have been many throughout Latin America), I... More
