I stayed at Lagunita for a week at the end of November and had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this hotel and Yelapa, which is a small, hospitable town. The website is very much true to form and my room (No. 4) was small, but full of charm. The palapas are strung along the shore of a cove inset from the Pacific and the setting is truly dreamlike. The best part of the beach was literally a step out of my door.
Housekeeping was very good and responsive. Beach towels were provided whenever I needed them. The linens are not fine Egyptian pima cotton, but they are ok. It got cool enough at night that extra blankets were needed, which the front office immediately gave me.
There are several very good restaurants in town and the hotel's is one of them. The food was very well prepared, right down to the desserts. I looked forward to every meal I had there!
I had two luxurious and much deserved massages at the spa and with the pounding surf it was a healing experience. Nancy, the therapist, was superb and her studio on the hotel grounds lends itself to serenity.
I did several day trips. One was with Cody, who runs the coffee shop and does birding trips. This was my first birding excursion and she is a top notch guide. My other trip was to Marietas Islands and that was incredible as well.
The drawbacks are the noisy "booze cruise" from Puerto Vallarta, the noise at night from the bars in Yelapa, and yes, the mosquitos. But Lagunita and Yelapa are so special that I'll just find a different kind of bug spray and use ear plugs!
