    Has anyone been here? The prices are right, just worried about the distance and some guests thinking it is too rustic? Let me know your thoughts.

      Never been to Hotel Lagunita but been to Yelapa and it is amazing..you can only get there by boat though. It is pretty remote but nice and tropical.

        The hotel has I think about 30 rooms, and some set wedding packages. Check tripadvisor for reviews--some people find it too rustic; others, not private enough. Guests would have to get there by water taxi from P.V. and service is only a few times per day. See yelapa.info for more on the area.

          I was told they cut off the electricity around 8 pm there. I don't know if that is true though. I would definitely ask. Most of the places at Yelapa looked open air with mosquito nets. Depending on what time of year you plan on going, I would check on A/C in the bedrooms (all night). We had a lot of fun the day we went over there to hang on the beach. There are a few resturants on the beach with pretty good food.

            Electricity service throughout Yelapa has stabilized considerably since our first visit there in 2007.  We've been 8 times and haven't had power problems since the first time.   We didn't have our wedding at the hotel, but they are one of the most established businesses in town--only place with reliable wireless Internet, last we checked--so I wouldn't worry about that. 

             

            We found the rooms small-ish for the price and didn't want such a sandy and exposed spot for our wedding, but if the environment suits you I think you'll have electricity. 

             

            CAVEAT:  OH, assuming you are talking about the dry season--don't have any idea what it's like during monsoon season June-Oct.  We're not eager to try Yelapa or anywhere else in the P.V. area in summer given what we've heard about the temperatures, jungle critters, humidity, etc.

              And as for a/c, yes, I'd say 99% of the rooms and rentals there are open air, so you're not going to find much air conditioning.
