My family (mom and kids 20 and 22) traveled to Yelapa in Januany 2012. We really loved El Jardin. We stayed in Casa Banana. Beds were comfy and living space clean. We had a beautiful view of the bay. We loved the rustic feel and great snorkeling right in front of the compound. Our hosts were warm, kind and very helpful. We spent our days at the beach, hiking to the water falls, horseback riding and just hangin' out. It is a wonderful place and we will return at the end of this year.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- El Jardin is an eco-friendly garden retreat with the ocean on one side and the jungle on the other. Beautiful gardens surround the open air sleeping palapas. The communal area is open anytime, where guests can mingle, relax, read, dine, lay in a hammock or play one of the many games provided. There are recycling guidelines on-site and the manager will introduce you to the communal spaces at the start of your visit. The common areas are great way to meet people and relax. We have a great local cook who is available for meals and often dinners will be arranged for guests. Our casas are a "labor of love". We have worked hard to get the casas to the state they are in and continue to work to make improvements to make them better and more comfortable for you. ... more less
