Please, as you consider this place, read the "terrible" and "poor" reviews first, and take them to heart. I wish I had! If I can save even one person fromthe disappointment we experienced, the time taken to write this will have been well worth it.
After reading positive reviews, I considered Yelapa for a family vacation. Thankfully, only one friend could accompany me. Had the entire family come, I'd have been disowned.
"Rustic" can be charming. But at Hotel Lagunita, the terms are not synonymous. I suspect the owner laughs all the way to the bank, chuckling at sucker tourists who think this place is quaint, instead of seeing it as his profitable cash-cow dump.
There's nothing wrong with "basic" accommodation, if clean. Not the case at Hotel Lagunita. Privacy? Peace and quiet? Forget it, in these very open cabins. A vacation on a beach between jungle and bay? Not when un-soft sand reeks of dog and cat urine.
I didn't find the village of Yelapa particularly attractive or friendly, and that was another disappointment. But if you want to go, at least find a place to stay other than Hotel Lagunita.
