“Delicious food at Lagunita”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

We loved the food at Hotel Lagunita. The service can be a bit touch-and-go but the food is delicious, and if you are patient (as you should be in Yelapa), it is worth the wait. Also nice and tranquil most of the time (as compared to the most of the louder places on the beach). This is one of the few places that takes credit cards in Yelapa, which might be nice if you are trying to reserve your cash pesos. Also, the Lagunita often hosts gallery openings and exhibits with live music.

“Shrimp Lagunita”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

When my husband heard shrimp and bacon in the same sentence he was sold. We stayed at Hotel Lagunita and found the wait staff very friendly and accomodating. I was under the weather one day and they let my husband bring my food to me in the room. We ate here often and we were never disappointed. The spinach salad is definately worth a try as well!

“Delicious breakfast on the beach”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

The breakfast was fantastic, really delicious, and the waitress was very friendly. Service was slow but who cares? You are sitting on the beach in Yelapa.

“Our first dining experience in Mexico”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

We traveled on Thanksgiving Day (USA), made it from the airport to the Pier, took the water taxi and arrived at Hotel Lagunita in amazement of the beauty of the surroundings, dropped our gear off and headed out to see what the place was about. We got a drink at the bar and sat in the reclining beach chairs to "drink it all in". They were the best Margaritas we had ever had.

Since we had never experienced beach front restaurants before we we a bit confused about where the restaurant actually was. Sure we saw many small tables under thatched roof umbrella shades along the beach in front of the bar, and a large covered area that appeared to be a dance floor, but nothing that looked like what we thought of as a restaurant. It was so fun to get the answer to "where's the restaurant?". "Right here, anywhere you want to sit". We looked at each other with big smiles and chose the closest table to the water.

Our waitress light the candle and gave us menus. The selection was wonderful and unexpected fare (remember we had never been to Mexico before and only used to "Americanized" Mexican restaurants). The appetizer was perfectly cooked coconut shrimp. I had some local fresh fish dish and me wife chose a special salad. Both were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The wait staff was attentive and not hovering as if the could sense what we might need...how great is that? We had a second round of drinks and we charged it to our room.

The next day we had a wonderful Mexican breakfast, again on the beach, and charged everything to our room. One more breakfast there the day we left and I was amazed at how small the bill actually was. It was so small I mentioned it to the staff and they double checked all the prices and confirmed they charged for everything. It was some of the best value for the flavor, quality, and service. Even if you aren't staying at Hotel Lagunita please consider having at least one meal at the Restaurant and Bar at Hotel Lagunita.

I can say that we truely felt welcomed to Mexico.
