We landed in Puerto Morelos in the midst of Corona uncertainty having just decided to 1/2 our remaining days in Quintana Roo and get back to the States while we still could. Robin and Steve greeted us like old friends and though we only had one day in this gorgeous seaside town it's a day we won't forget. We arrived to a fantastic Sunday brunch and concert at the Layla cafe. We enjoyed our time on the deck, the beach, walking through town. In short, Layla is like a home and Robin and Steve are hosts who quickly become friends. We wish we had more time yet we're grateful we didn't miss out. They've created a wonderful space that has a distinct community vibe and is considerably more than just a beautiful place to stay. When we return there is no doubt we'd wish to stay with Robin and Steve again. The reviews don't lie and there's good reason Layla Guesthouse is so highly reviewed. Stay well Robin and Steve and we hope to stay with you again.

Thank you for taking the time to write those kind words ! We are happy to hear you made it back home safe and sound in these turbulent times. We have been hunkered down here at Layla for these past few months and have time to stop and look around...smell the May Flowers...and realize Layla is indeed a nice place to be "stuck" at. We hope to re-open the cafe next weekend, and the rest of Layla as we go thru June. We look for ward to your triumphant return one day in calmer days and to share more of what this little gem of a town has to offer ! Stay well....

Okay, it's true. I'm a Layla Guesthouse groupie. Love this place and it's owners. The guesthouse is small but a true treat . But, if you don't stay there, one should stop by soon after arrival to plan what activity one wants to be involved in at Layla. For me, this trip is was all about sunrise Yoga! Yep, 7 a.m. on the rooftop deck as the sun rises. I don't even like Yoga and I become a convert. There are different teachers and the chef is also an instructor and she can tell you all the different types. I fell in love with Kundalini Yogo with Sasha. But, any type of Yoga at Layla for the morning person, whether you like yoga or not, is a must. I'm having fun in NYC with my "Steve" haircut. Getting compliments everywhere I go. If nothing else at Layla, I don't miss a Steve or Naomi haircut. Marco was not in town, but if he was, I wouldn't miss his massage either. There are Cenote plus tours by Robin, talks, movies, excellent fare, music on weekends and for me the guesthouse dweller, the hammock in the very back of the back yard to just chill. Love that space. Thank you Layla for another wonderful escape. Miss you already.

What a wonderful place. The eggs Benedict are the best I’ve had. There was entertainment more than one night. The jungle tour and wood carvers village, cenote swim and lunch with a Myan family was the highlight of our trip. My husband and I are going in a week. Can’t wait to do it all again. The hosts are wonderful and make you feel so cared for. Truly a gem and a must see. Located on a quiet street, so relaxing.

We had a trip planned for Playa Del Carmen and ended up coming in two days early so we could visit Puerto Morelos as we had heard alot about the area. Prior to leaving we joined "friends of puerto moleros" on facebook so we could have access to local information. Upon landing at Cancun airport, we sent a message out asking for where to stay in puerto moleros and we got several replies suggesting "Layla Guest House". We decided to give it a try so off we went. Needless to say, we fell in love with Layla Guesthouse, the staff and the owners. The best way I can describe it? "A little slice of heaven"! After 3 days at Layla we went to Playa because we had a reservation we had already paid for..... but after 3 nights in Playa, we called the owners and asked if they had any vacancies because we wanted to come back. We got the last room again so we packed, left Playa early, and spent our last 3 days back at Layla Guest House! Layla Guest House is perfect for those who want to get away from the everyday stress back home. A place where you meet amazing, wonderful people who make you feel welcome. A place where the food is made from scratch and cooked up to perfection every single time. A place where you can totally relax and appreciate the simple things in life. A place filled with the meaning of living life to the fullest. Coming from a girl who only stays in posh hotels, I can honestly say, you wont be disappointed! if you are looking for flashy, fancy, don't come here. If you are looking for a real escape where you can take in the fresh ocean air, sleep like a baby at night and celebrate life with amazing people, then this is your spot. The rooms are beautiful and you will also love the rooftop pool and bar. The open air restaurant on the first floor is fantastic. Activities include yoga, movie night and live music. You'll fall asleep at the end of the day totally relaxed and thankful for the experience and it will be hard to leave here. We had the pleasure to get to know the owners Robin and Steve who are truly special folks. Combine Layla Guest House and Puerto Moleros and you have the perfect vacation!
