Would recommend for solo travelers particularly We had a lovely stay here. If I were a solo traveler this is definitely where I would stay; Layla has a very homey welcoming feel with plenty of opportunities to engage with others with in the common areas (a cafe and cute rooftop chill spaces.) Our upstairs room was comfortable and charmingly decorated, and the mosquito spray made available for guests was a most thoughtful touch. Attentive service and two beautiful cats completed the feeling of home; Layla's staff works hard to make you feel welcome.

Great Location Surrounded By Friendly Warm People Inexpensive, so don't expect the fancy Ritz Carlton. Do expect a fancy tree house. Surrounded by nature, quiet, comfort, and friendliness. Felt quite safe to be there. You can feel the cool breeze from the beach. The AC and free Wifi in the rooms are strong. The Wifi throughout the property is strong. Our room did have electrical issues that maintenance dealt with swiftly. The "pool" is quite small. Not for swimming, but great for cooling down. Close to the town center, beach entrance, supermarket, and tons of restaurants/bars. 30 mins south of Cancun Airport. 10 min cab ride to the old town across the highway, with more amazing food. All the cabs seem to know where Layla Guest House is.The cafe has an amazing vegan menu. I'm not a vegan, but I am now a fan of it. They serve great juices/smoothies, eggplant parmigiana, pizza, and empanadas. Oh those empanadas!!! If you are staying at the guest house, just make sure you get the 10% discount at the cafe. It wasn't till the end of the trip that we realized we were not getting the discount in the mornings.The owners Robin and Steve are so warm and welcoming. They were able to set us up for a couple tours. We had an amazing walking food tour in the old town with Chris. Our experience with Robin and Paz during the Cenote tour was a favorite. The owners also introduced us to the miracle massage therapist Marcos, who uses the Layla Spa room to work his magic.Thank you Layla! You make me want to come back to Puerto Morales!

Layla Guesthouse What an amazing place, it's like a little piece of paradise in paradise. Nothing is very far away in this laid back beach community. There is usually some sort of entertainment in the square on Friday and Saturday also beaches, fishing and excellent food. Many of the restaurants offer gluten free options and the restaurant at Layla is gluten free and vegan. Loved our stay and we will definitely return.

Layla Guesthouse Beautiful boutique hotel. We stayed in one of the garden suites and it was wonderful. It felt secluded even though it's close to everything. None of the craziness of Cancun but still within 30 minutes of the airport. Puerto Morelas is laid back with plenty of things to do.

A very special place The owners of Layla Guesthouse in PM work very hard to ensure your stay at Layla is magical. There is no other place in PM like Layla with its hip, convivial and down to earth vibe, delicious food, smoothies and juices and a layout primed to catch the sea breeze and magnificent views. There is also an activity board which lists the (almost) nightly entertainment options--lectures, movies, live music and karaoke!! The mood is very relaxed and if you are a solo traveler as I was, you will feel safe and welcomed. I did have to change rooms after the first night however so if you are sensitive to mosquitos as I am,I would avoid the first floor garden rooms which are surrounded by lush vegetation and tend to be more humid. Big shout out to Jimena and Grace for making the change happen.

Not just a great guesthouse, but also a little cultural center! Layla's is like a little slice of Berkeley, CA (where I live in real life) transported to Puerto Morelos! Very bohemian/hip atmosphere, and also the friendliest, most considerate staff of any lodging I've ever stayed at. And the ONLY vacation place I've ever stayed where I saw other solo women hanging out -- there were a few of them working on their laptops in the cafe. I felt so safe and at home! I loved the multiple decks with hammock on one, plunge pool on the next, and picnic table/BBQ area on the top. All great for catching the breeze and staring blissfully at the ocean.Special thanks to Ximena, who jumped to make sure my every question was answered and every need fulfilled within minutes of asking, and who is just an overall delightful person. Oh, and the cafe food was really great -- I had the plantain pancakes! And the location -- perfect!

A letter from our owner

Located just in front of the crystal clear Caribbean Sea, Layla Guesthouse opened its doors to travelers from all over the world in 2013.

Located in the amazing Puerto Morelos, a small and safe Mexican fishing town, we’re surrounded by both natural and historical treasures. Arriving from nearly 10 years living in Paris, we were drawn to the area by the Cenote-Mangrove-Reef ecosystem and Mayan culture. After designing and constructing the guesthouse with our team of local Mayan builders, we created an award-winning tour into their village, visiting their jaw-dropping Cenote and unspoiled jungle full of Medicinal plants used by the Maya for centuries.

Layla is highly regarded by travelers seeking authentic experiences, and world class well-being and beauty services. Our amenities and personalized attention will make your experience in the Caribbean truly one of a kind.

Far away, but also with a taste of home. Here you can relax in our spa and enjoy tasty meals and live entertainment in our cafe. Or simply spend your holidays on the beach, in the transparent sea, and touring the inner Mayan peninsula on our tour, all-the-while recharging your body, mind and spirit – leaving here feeling fully refreshed!

Our hallmark is warmth and well-being.

Come and relax among friends, watch the sunrise from our sky pool overlooking the sea and enjoy the sunset rooftop yoga classes. Feel the embrace from the lush natural beauty of this part of sunny Mexico – Lindo !!

Hope to see you soon!
-Robin from Layla Guesthouse
