I love Lagunita, the time between my trips was way too long ( 13 yrs) it was much more rustic with electicity only in the evenings but it was still the same charming hide away I remember.. This place is a relaxation haven, don't go there for anything other than to disconnect and enjoy the view. I love the staff...

Things not yet addressed in previous reviews: This is the only inn in Yelapa on the beach -- all others are on the rocks or inland. Your best option. The website is sleeker than the place itself. If "funky" has negative connotations to you, Yelapa might not be for you. Plenty of ex-pat burnouts. Nothing to buy in Y, so...

I was prepared for "rustic" accommodations, but I expected far better service than I've gotten at Hotel Lagunita. The food is awful, and the kitchen staff are apparently unwilling to make accommodations for diners wanting anything other than fried tortilla chips and tacos. The bathroom smells (and on top of this they ask you to throw your toilet paper away...

A gorgeous 40-minute coastal water taxi ride from Puerto Vallarta to tropical Yelapa. The hotel consists of a number of palapas nestled at the foot of the jungle and lining the very pretty and clean beach. The restaurant is good, the service friendly and professional and the location perfect. There's even a large swimming pool overlooking the sea. This is...

And we don't mean that in a positive way. We have stayed around the world in many spartan accommodations, but there is a profound difference between simple and scummy. We had planned to stay for a week and left as soon as we could find other accommodations because it was peak season. We shared our "hut" with a large land...

I've been coming to Yelapa for many years and have almost always stayed at Hotel Lagunita. It's the perfect location in Yelapa, right on the beach (which no other hotel can truly say) with the best view, excellent staff, lovely owner (Lucas), good food . . . and overall a super friendly atmosphere that lets you experience the paradise of...

If we had simply stayed with a package, we would have been watching a water polo game of tourist in a pool while listening to La Bamabe. Our decision to go to Yelapa introduced us to another, more real side to Mexico. It was a privilege to remain in Yelapa as the last boatload of tourists pulled away. My kids...

We were a little hesitant to do Mexico. We have traveled central and south America and had great vacations. I think we got caught up a bit in cable news Mexico stories. Just like the US, there are places in Mexico where it would be "a really bad idea to visit" Pueto Vallarta and Yelapa were not those places. Felt...

This was an amazing trip for many reasons, we were well prepared due to reading trip advisor reviews, however I expected a much more rustic experience and to have some level of uncomfortability, yet there was really none. Our room was very small and quaint and one of the oldest at the hotel yet it was completely accomodating for us,...
