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

Good location, however the room was not very clean and poorly maintained. The restaurant seems to have a different management than the hotel so you have to pay every time you go. There is no service from the restaurant to the rooms so it is not possible to have a drink at your veranda.

Overall great experience. The hotel was good. It had all of the basics and was clean. Owner is super friendly and helpful. I went with a couple of friends and had a good time but I would strongly recommend a trip for you and your partner. This place is really a beautiful backdrop for a romantic getaway. The sunsets here... More

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

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
