If you've never been before, read the reviews. If you're up for an adventure, don't miss this place. It is a beautiful, peaceful setting. The staff was helpful. The only hard part about it was that I didn't sleep well in the beds, but I still wouldn't trade my experience for somewhere else. The price for a front-row seat to... More

My girl and I went out for a mini vacation and the hotel didn't disappoint! It's very "basic" but you get what you pay and we were expecting something like that, nothing fancy. The good things: Hot water! A small yet nice bathroom. A little terrace in front of the casita. Relaxing (up to a certain point). You get what... More

This is my kind of place! Hop on a boat, take in the stunning coastline, arrive on the pier and walk a few steps to your cabaña. Hotel Lagunita is GORGEOUS, rustic and my ideal Mexican get-a-way. I live in Puerto Vallarta so when I need to escape the "city" this is where I will go. The staff are helpful... More

We found ourselves in beautiful pueblo again. We love Yelapa, there is something about it , hard to describe, better to experience...tranquility, gorgeous colors of the ocean and the bay, lush jungle, beautiful people, amazing pies ...Lagunita Hotel has the best location in my opinion, right on the beach and a decent restaurant which is very convinient. The interior of... More

If you don't mind some critters in your room (crabs, geckos, bugs) this place will take your breath away. The views from the rooms are like nothing else. The quirks of this place will grow on you. Bring a flashlight for walking back to your room at night. The restaurant staff and office staff are great.

This is a very modest hotel situated right on the beach. It meets the minimum criteria in terms of a bath, comfortable bed, and private facilities. We were staying there in late May so it was pushing it in comfortability with just one fan and no air conditioning unless you like to sweat while you sleep. It makes up for... More

No doubt, Hotel Lagunita provides a unique experience. It's tranquil setting in Yelapa makes for a great getaway and total relaxation. I would definitely return, but there are a few things I wish I'd known ahead of time that might have better prepared me. Of course, mishaps while traveling are part of the adventure. But in the event these tips... More

Thanks a lot for your kindly review and also thank you for your tips. We will take care of this providing more of this information to our guest. Sorry for room #19 this is probably the worst positioned honeymoon room but some people like it, that’s why managers are keeping like that. We will advise our clients next time and... More

At this point, I don't even remember how many times I've stayed at Hotel Lagunita. It is always a very peaceful experience and often an adventure. The rustic feeling, the sounds of the waves all night and the visitors from the jungle are always an excellent experience. As I have said before, Hotel Lagunita is what it is...a relaxing experience... More

We had a really wonderful time at Hotel Lagunita. It is rustic, but clean. Hot water for showers and BEAUTIFUL ocean views! The swimming pool looks like a natural pond with large rocks scattered throughout for standing or sitting on. Located directly on the little bay on the south shore of Puerto Vallarta. Yelapa is a small fishing village that... More
