“It's a miracle people stay here.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I stayed at Casa Milagros because it looked nice for a single traveler. Patricia (the proprietor's daughter) was actually very helpful as she let me pay online via paypal (warning...there are NO ATMs in Yelapa.) However, the accommodation was sub-par. I didn't mind the walk up (181 stairs!) but I expected better when I got there. I confirmed in advance that there was WiFi but there wasn't. Antonio (the proprietor) told me it was just down but I don't believe it as another guest that had been there for 2 weeks said it hadn't worked the whole time. When I asked for a discount because the WiFi didn't work Antonia didn't want to work with. I walked to town to get WiFi and Patricia gave me the requested discount, however.

For the actual accommodation: my door didn't have a lock on it so I had to carry my valuables with me at all times (to the beach!) and hope that my clothes weren't stolen. Then that first night I discovered the door wouldn't even latch from the inside! So I slept 3 nights with my door cracked open 2 inches. A woman...traveling alone...in Mexico. Ridiculous. The whipped cream on top was when I discovered there was no hot water, either, so I took cold showers the entire visit. The only reason I didn't move rooms was the fact that I'd have to find someone and pay them to come help me move my bags.

A couple of additional notes: the electricity is dangerous with wires dangling everywhere and extension cords. The cooler with 'bottled' water was really coming from a tap with a funny looking filter. This was my 5th visit to Mexico and the only time I really had stomach issues was here and I think it was the water. Finally, although Antonia was fairly nice, I firmly believe that she speaks English and just refuses to do so. She understood everything I was saying yet refused to communicate with me in English. I have limited Spanish (I speak Italian) and always try, but when I needed to discuss the problems with her it was frustrating that she wouldn't work with me.

All in all, if you are a single traveler on a deep budget take a chance here, but I don't think it is worth it. There are too many nicer places in Yelapa.

Room Tip: Check the locks before you stay! The downstairs corner rooms or the palapa are the best choices for...

This is a beautiful place to stay in one of the most beautiful villages in Mexico. Anna and Patrick are the current proprietors and do a wonderful job of welcoming you to the hostel and the village. The rooms are clean, the kitchen is spotless, and they are very eco-conscious and support sustainable living. We stayed in the palapa, the bamboo/palm frond room on top of the building and it was an amazing night. If you're tight on cash or just want a completely different hotel experience, stay at Casa Milagros. And don't be intimidated by the staircase leading up to it...
