MiraMar Yelapa
Ranked #1 of 6 Yelapa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 May 2014

LOVE Miramar in Yelapa - this spot is great because you are in the perfect location to get to the beach and to the village. It is literally steps from the village and then walking to the main beach is about 10 minutes and an enjoyable walk. We stayed in the bottom unit, Casa Manta Ray, and the balcony overlooks the ocean, where you can see rays, needle fish, and other fish swimming around while you are just sitting and drinking coffee! Kendra and Fernando are great hosts and great to work with. We loved eating at Ray's (and talking to Ray was a treat). Ate at Glorias (best chile relleno I have ever had) and Ricardo there is awesome. We also loved Angelina's on the beach - great strawberry margs (not too sweet) and delicious shrimp tacos. Yelapa is a wonderful little village with so much to explore. We were there for 6 nights and looked around quite a bit and Miramar is definitely the place to stay.

My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful week here in April, and cannot wait to go back!! Casa Manta Ray has stunning views of the ocean with dolphins, whales and a private beach. We spent most of our days sitting on the patio listening to music and enjoying the sun.

Not only is Yelapa amazing, but the owners of Hotel Lagunita really make this place something special. They are easy going, available when you need them, but also ready to show you their favorite spots if you want to. We went on a day trip with Fernando to the islands and a beach where he made us fresh ceviche.

I highly recommend this for anyone who doesn't want to spend the week in busy PV. You can unwind and make friends with a wonderful community!

We had a great with at MiraMar, Kendra and Fernando were wonderful. The apartment we stayed in had plenty of room and a wonderful balcony. Very nice place for families. Fernando came over and grilled a fish for us and we went on a great day excursion to a beautiful beach. There were a lot of jellyfish when we were there but they say that is very rare so just check with Kendra before. Even so we were able to swim everyday, we just timed it right. There was also a nice hike to a waterfall. Lots of nice restaurants in town and feels very safe. Our kids loved it and keep asking when we are going back.

Room Tip: If you have small kids don't choose the bottom apartment the railing would not be safe, the apar...

We love Yelapa for its off-the beaten path charm, and for its rich tradition that exudes from the locals you interact with. It’s a true mecca for relaxation and a “must-visit” for those seeking rural adventure, and have a true desire to get away from it ALL!

We loved staying at the MiraMar and think it added to the charm of our adventure. It’s true, MiraMar hugs the shoreline and you feel like you’re on a boat overlooking the ocean and falling asleep / waking up to the waves crashing along the shore. It's truly a bit dreamy!

We used all fives senses while staying in Casa Manta Ray at MiraMar. We sipped wine on the deck by candlelight, watched the stars, smelled the sea, heard the waves crashing on the shore and felt the warmth of our skin from playing in the sunshine that day. Ahhhh, paradise!

MiraMar's amazing hosts Fernando and Kendra Garcia check to ensure you've got what you need. From the start, they promptly provide recommendations and answer any questions you may have. Whether it be a snorkel trip or seafood fest you're seeking, they include you in the "goings-on" and arrange trips that work for you. Many people have already commented on how great and hard-working this family is -- we concur! They are amazing people who continuously put their guests' needs first. Their positive energy and smiles are contageous.

We highly recommend going on a MiraMar excursion (fishing or renting the boat for the day). We caught lots of fish, ate fresh cerviche, saw tons of wildlife (whales, stingrays, turtles, dolphins, blue-footed boobies, fish, etc). Another five-star review I need to write after this!

We loved celebrating our belated honeymon and birthdays in Yelapa, and are so happy we found MiraMar on TripAdvisor! Woot, what a great vacation. :) We'll be back!

Room Tip: Casa Manta Ray is awesome for couples, but you can't go wrong with any of the rooms in MiraMar.

First of all, Kendra, Fernando and Kayden were a joy to deal with. Any questions or concerns we had were taken care of immediately, and they went above and beyond and "outside of the box" to ensure we were comfortable arriving, staying, and heading home. Casa Palmita is steps away from El Cerrito, a fabulous roof-top restaurant, and has a lovely view from the very large balcony. I loved the walk "down to the beach" across the river... it was relaxing and wonderful and we will be back next year!

We had a wonderful stay at Miramar in Yelapa. Beautiful, well maintained suite, comfortable beds and daily visits from Fernando to see if we needed anything and to just check in with us to see how things were going.

The town is charming and quiet. A lot of action on the beach, but traveling through the town we would usually only see a handful of residents or other travelers.

I would recommend Miramar.

Room Tip: The website has accurate pictures. The two bedroom suite was lovely.
