We went in the summer, super quiet and peaceful and safe. If you like something non commercial this is the place to go. Better if you like animals and speak a little Spanish. And most important bring cash money there are no ATM machines, Lagunita restaurant take credit cards. Very nice place😊

Rustic retreat!
We enjoyed our two quiet days literally steps from the beach at Yelalpa. Beautiful sunsets and mornings and warm nights. Water was very clear and inviting, especially in the morning. Very rustic accommodations that were fine if your okay with roughing it (we are) once in a while. Cabanas could use some updates, but if you want the slow pace of the "old Mexico" coast, this is your place. Sadly, the off the beach areas were less than ideal. Trash everywhere, strong (bad) smells and generally unkept. But, that's the old Mexico, like it or not. Beach had some trash, but not much different than other beaches near PV. We had fun!

Uncomfortable stay.
Accommodations were rustic. Fine. No excuse for mattress with springs worn out, pillows like bricks and threadbare towels.

Paradise found!
What a magical place. RIGHT on the beach in palapas that open onto the sand and waves. Don't come expecting luxury, but if you are truly looking to get away and experience beach life this is the place.

A Palapa in Yelapa
We loved the location of this quaint hotel. We had a beach front palapa. The beach was gorgeous! Listening to the surf from our palapa at night was amazing. The food at hotel restaurant on the beach was delicious , and the staff were friendly and accommodating. They served a delicious made to order breakfast and fresh seafood for dinner. This is a definite return for us. We spent two nights in Yelapa while on a two week trip to Puerto Vallarta. Took a water taxi from the main pier in Puerto Vallarta, and the hotel was easy to find. The only hotel directly on the beach.

This was a quaint little older resort, the rooms are very bare bones, the beds were very hard and it’s right on the water so the waves crashing on the rocks was extremely loud through the night. The restaurant was very good though

You stay in huts which are very rustic... But you do have running water which does get hot.. So that was great!

We arrived on last boat in. When we checked in no one escorted us in the dark to our bungalow....path was difficult to navigate with luggage and no flash light. Wanted to eat dinner in their restaurant which closed early that evening. Spent first day on the beach. Wait staff was not attentive to refilling drinks etc.
