I want to start by saying that I knew this vacation would be “rustic”, I expected that. I have also spent time in my life backpacking so I am used to vacations and staying at places that are not 5 star experiences so I know what to expect. I have slept on hard uncomfortable beds before, no big deal! I... More

My family and I stayed in a couple of the oceanview cabanas for a week just after Christmas. All in all, we had a wonderful time, but there are a few things I would like to mention. First of all, I understood that these rooms were going to be rustic, and I knew to bring my own shampoo/soaps etc. However,... More

Absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed! There were ants all over the floor in the bathroom and crawling all over the wall in the bedroom, congregating in a mass on the wall, on a clump of who knows what! There were no towels or shampoo provided in the bathroom. The bed was covered with mosquito netting to keep... More

We had been staying at the Four Seasons for a work trip so this was an overall wonderful trip. The room was basic, but had everything we needed and our front door was the beach! It doesn't get much better than that!

I SO badly wanted to give this review a *5, but can't. I will get the "con" out of the way so I can move onto just how amazing this place was! CON: -Pool was totally unusable for our 4 days. It was not fit for swimming, with a very murky look and yellowish foam collecting on the sides. Looked... More

We stayed at Hotel Lagunita from Nov 10-13. While very rustic, that is part of it's charm. The room was right on the beach, clean, and the service was above expectations. The restaurant next door was very convenient and very good.

I just returned from three incredible nights at Hotel Lagunita. I enjoyed it with 4 other friends this time and we had a great visit there! As I always tell people, the negative reviews are written by people that did not take the time to read the reviews that are already online. Like any jungle town, you can expected bugs,... More

It's a great idea to mix the hotel with nature. I stayed there 4 nights and it was an incredible, new and exotic experience: I will never forget the fireflies flying next to my bed!!!!!! You have to have in mind that it's an adventure, there are fans instead of AC and there are no TVs, but those are not... More

Myself and ten friends took a day trip to Yelapa from Puerto Vallarta. I had contacted them via email asking if we could use the beach front and eat and drink at their hotel. This truly was an amazing and memorable experience. The water was calm, warm, and unbelievably clear. Fantastic day of swimming at Hotel Lagunita. Coming from San... More
