Casa Bahia Bonita
Ranked #4 of 6 Yelapa B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I actually really like this place, but I'm giving it low stars because they dramatically increased their prices this year. We stayed in Casa Bonita in 2011 for 2 nights - stayed in the very pleasant Delfin suite, and we paid $60 a night. We were going back to Yelapa for 3 nights this year (after a week in Vallarta) and were going to stay at Casa Bonita again. However, when we checked prices online they had increased the price for the same room to $115 per night. Although the place is very nice, it is pretty basic, and not worth that price in this location. We ended up staying at Hotel Lagunita (right next door on the beach), which was really nice, for $140 for THREE nights (so less than $50 a night). Unless Bonita drops their prices they will lose a lot of business (they looked empty when we were there).

Room Tip: Delfin is the best suite - it has a large patio and has a great view over the bay of Yelapa

We stayed at Casa Bahia Bonita in Yelapa for one night in the middle of a weeklong stay in Puerto Vallarta. We had been to Yelapa on a day trip about five years ago and wanted to return and spend more time. Now that we've spent one night in Yelapa we want to return and spend two or three nights. We brought our three kids (12 boy, 10 & 8 girls) and they loved it but I think the lack of a pool would have become a problem for the kids after a few days.

As for Casa Bahia Bonita, very nice clean safe place with a great view. We rented the third floor which consists of two units Suite Eclipse & Suite Sol. This gave us three separate bedrooms and three king beds. Suite Sol had a type of pull out bed that we didn't use. The kitchens were functional but had minimal utensils. The minimal utensils did not matter to us because all we needed was the fridge. We did miss having a functional coffee maker though.

The location is good but a little challenging. It's good if you are looking for peace and quiet and you don't mind some stairs and some walking. It's very close to the pier so getting the little luggage we had up to the third floor was no big deal but it is a bit of a climb. If we had any quantity of groceries or luggage it would have been a chore. The pier is a nice place to hang out and snorkel or sun bathe. We spent most of our full day on the pier.

The town of Yelapa is on the other side of the bay so getting to town is about a 30 minute walk that includes wading across a shallow river and trudging through a lot of soft sand. We didn't head for town until after sunset and the adventure that followed would freak out many less traveled folks. I would recommend finding your way during daylight hours but I must say that my kids (who are very adventurous) had a blast trying to find our way through the back alleys of a town whose streets are as wide as alleys and the alleys are barley paths. Eventually we made our way to a great reasonable dinner at a place called Eclipse. We bought a few supplies at a local store and headed back on an equally challenging return trip to our hotel. Along the way we stopped at the bar at Hotel Lagunita for a very resonable drink and snack. We ended up having lunch there the next day and it was under $50 U.S. for five of us including a few drinks. We ate lunch at one of the places on the main beach (that caters to the day trip folks) right after we arrived and it was a little more expensive but still reasonable.

Casa Bahia Bonita was great and we did not get enough of Yelapa. Casa Bahia Bonita is very new and the owners are a family of very nice Yelapan folks. If they would offer a boat taxi ride across the bay to guests it would make the trip into town much more convenient. Although I think it would have been less of a chore if we were just a couple rather than a family of five.
