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

This hotel is not a 5 star marriott with a swim up bar and turn down service, but who would want that in Yelapa! A small village with no cars, roads in the jungle fits this hotel perfectly. Feel this place is well kept and priced right for the location. You get your own little "Palapa", a pool, the beach,... More

My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful week here in April, and cannot wait to go back!! Casa Manta Ray has stunning views of the ocean with dolphins, whales and a private beach. We spent most of our days sitting on the patio listening to music and enjoying the sun. Not only is Yelapa amazing, but the owners of Hotel... More

I am submitting this a bit late, as I just joined this site. I made the trip in late Sept/jearly Oct 2011. Well, I'll start off by saying I read a lot of Trip Advisor's reviews prior to staying here. There were glowing reviews to bad reviews, so I took the bad reviews with a grain of salt and booked... More

Fortunately we have had many advances since 2011. Currently we have some improvements in the rooms as well as room chairs that we provide out of the huts. Since 2013 we started a task of improving facilities and we plan to be finishing all the work this year. We really would like to invite you again to visit the hotel... More
