I whisked my sweetie away to Yelapa to get away from the hustle and bustle of life for a few days. I thought I carefully chose my hotel selection based on photos & limited selection of lodging while in beautiful Yelapa for a few days.
Overall, the Lagunitas "resort" is really just a series of huts -- definitely minimalist, which is fine if you're like us and not planning on being in the room except mainly to sleep. But the room itself really wasn't up to par. In the honeymoon "suite" we found one Full size bed and on the other side of a make-shift "privacy wall", there were two other twin beds. Pretty strange. It wasn't warm (in furnishings), just a bed, a side table, a dresser and mirror. No bottled water, no clock, nothing. For the $150 USD we paid, it really could have been a better experience. Also, there was a serious ant issue, bathroom plumbing was quite the experience (scalding hot water, then freezing cold, then scalding hot). Less than ideal.
Food at the restaurant was consistently great -- I recommend Huevos Rancheros & delicious coffee. I'd eat at the restaurant again but definitely not stay at this place. It needs a face lift, hospitality team checking on folks and some furniture outside the huts where we can sit outside. The "honeymoon suite" had a large tiled flat porch of sorts but because of all of the bugs, we didnt want to sit directly on the ant trail. the only option was to bring out the only chair we had in our room. Kinda weird.
When we arrived, they had lost our reservation. After an hour or so, they finally figured it out and gave us room #17.
Pool wasn't working - wish we had known ahead of time.
Overall experience here at hotel lagunitas is a C+.
