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...

Just got back from a weeks stay. No hot water in my palapa for the last 4 days of our stay. Asked several times with no fix. 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

Ok, we have been coming here for 8 years and always stayed here This hotel has a LOT going for it ... Great location Great restaurant and service Best spot to park for the day, drink margaritas, eat the FRESHEST cerviche and guacamole there is and watch the people. Rooms need attention - the same mattress from our stay 8... More

I came to Yelapa for a buddy's wedding and stayed at Lagunita. Had a wonderful time and I'm hoping to return. The place is one of a kind. The village, the cabanas, the hotel grounds in general are all beautiful and Luke and the rest of the staff were great. Have fun. Jason Searcy, Los Angeles

Been wanting to go to Yelapa for 32 years. Then saw the "Sunset" mag article. That clinched it. Only way to get there by boat? Cool. You get off water taxi at pier right next to hotel (not really a hotel, but a collection of huts on the beach, rocks or pier). The town is to the south down the... More

Spent two fabulous nights at this beachside hotel. With our own hut facing the water, and the sound of the waves hitting the shore all night, we felt like we were stranded on a deserted tropical island! Good service, basic amenities and an excellent location. The natural style pool was refreshing and further added to the rustic ambiance. Will definitely... More

The experience was fabulous. It all begins by taking a boat to get to Yelapa. How cool is that! The rooms are ocean front and the water is incredible. We enjoyed opening the door and jumping into the ocean by the dock is there. The town is worth visiting but no the best town. There is a an ok waterfall... More

We stayed in 12. There were no shudders only primitive curtains. The disco on the beach ran the synthesizers on high until about 2 and at a slightly lower volume until around 3 or so. Something needs to be worked out here. Yelapa needs to decide whether it wants to be South Puerto Vallarta ( count me out) or still... More

What a great place - super nice staff, great views, good food. Yelapa is a VERY quiet place so expect to spend some down time. The rooms I would best describe as Swiss Family Robinson architecture - don't expect luxury but they are all distinct. No air con but the fans they provide are good enough. One note- other reviews...
