Simple, laid back and perfect. Next to the beach, a great pool, and the village of Yelapa on the other end of the beach offers a variety of familial and friendly restaurants. The weather is perfect, the place is mellow. It's all good.

The perfect hotel for a romantic beach holiday: little huts, wooden shatters, palm trees and ocean views... A little paradise where time stops. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was great and the cocktails were even better! In the evening, you can walk up to the village for a little buzz (dark path and lots of steps -... More

I went to a retreat at Hotel Lagunita 6 years ago and had yearned to return ever since. I took my daughter and grand daughter there for a vacation and the staff was absolutely gracious.

We always stay in a palapa at Lagunita Hotel in Yelapa. Palapas are spartan but immaculate... sort of a throwback to a rustic Club Med look. Restaurant there is good... with very quick and friendly service. Yelapa is heaven. Waterfalls. flowers.... hikes.. animals...good food.. nice people... good swimming... quiet... and no cars. There is an innocence and rawness to this... More

We just returned from a wedding in Yelapa and a two night stay at Hotel Lagunita. If I knew now I would say that this hotel is not for everyone. The pictures on the internet must be very old because we had the "honeymoon suite" and it was dark and depressing. The hotel should be updated. The bed was awful,... More

Beautiful, peaceful location. The rooms are open air and amazing. The staff is cry nice and the food was amazing. The only drawback was the number of bugs while we were there. Some large ants decided to make a home in the bedside table.

I had wanted to stay in Yelapa for a number of years so treated myself to 3 nights here and paid for a "waterfront" palapa. When I arrived I was shown #1 which qualifies as "waterfront" by virtue of there only being a wide stretch of sand between it and the water. The stone building sits in a hollow and... More

Overall I highly recommend staying in Yelapa at Lagunita. It was everything I dreamed of as a kid. I can't imagine a more romantic setting. The thatched roof palapa was built with love and very unique. The rock pool was dreamy at sunset. There were dozens of butterflies on the small paths that wind through the individual cabanas. The staff... More

We live in Puerto Vallarta and were looking for a weekend getaway, we found the Hotel Lagunita on Cupocity and looked over the pictures and decided to to go after 10 years of not visiting Yelapa. The hotel is located right on the beach on the north end of Yelapa. I absolutely loved it! The beach is huge with a... More

I forget how many times I've been to Hotel Lagunita...but, I'm never sorry when I go. The rustic cabanas and interiors are a perfect beachfront setting. And, the staff is always great. The hotel is not your typical hotel...don't arrive there expecting upgraded and amenities and designer rooms. You won't find it there. But, in their defense they do not... More
