Did not want leave this little paradise! stunning indoor/outdoor living steps away from the best beach in puerto morelos! amazing 360 views from the roof and pool levels. run by the kindest couple and staff. didn't want to leave!! will certainly be back soon for another visit. favorite place to stay in quintana roo-- close and easy access to tulum, cancun, isla mujeres, and all the rest of quintana roo without mandatory participation in the intense hotel scene in those other places

absolutely beautiful! Imagine a lovely, well-cared for, luscious, secret space; minutes from a beautiful crystal clear beach and a short walk not a quaint town square; this is Layla's Guesthouse. Our room was set in a garden, had a kitchenette, an indoor garden, steps away from a pool with seaside view and a full deck with a 360 degree view. Layla Guesthouse is a quiet, peaceful getaway. The owners and hosts are absolutely fantasitc! From the moment we arrived, we were taken care of at every turn while being given space and privacy. Layla Guesthouse is a gem! Robin, Steve, Jimena and Lucio, along with the other staff are welcoming and kind providing a welcoming retreat!

Best stay ever We loved our visit so much. I’ve never been so entertained, relaxed or grateful for such a beautiful vacation spot. Rooms are spotless, perfectly furnished and air conditioned. The restaurant is the best and often has entertainment . This picture is the top platform at Layla Guest House.

Our Safe Sanctuary Where to start? Layla is a wonderful place and my partner and I were so fortunate to find it! We stayed here for three months in the spring of 2020 during the pandemic outbreak.The hosts Robin and Steve are the sweetest people! Robin is caring, generous and organized and was ready to help us with whatever we needed, which was very reassuring under the circumstances. The rooms themselves are beautiful and comfortable. We stayed first in the La Selva room, and I loved the workstation with natural light and a view of a mini rainforest garden. I also appreciated the king-sized bed, and the kitchen was equipped with quality cooking utensils. We also stayed in the Josefina room which was like being in a treehouse with a huge window filled with green from the flamboyan tree outside. So cozy! I really appreciated having plenty of filtered water and the bookshelves in the rooms. I was thankful to have the beautiful little pool to cool off in and I did exercises in the pool too. Upstairs we would bring a snack or a meal to eat at the sky bar or just relax and enjoy the view. The upper deck was an absolute gem for 360 degree views of the sunset over the mangroves and moonrise and sunrise over the ocean. The beach in front of Layla is the best beach in Puerto Morelos! The town is a nice place with a very convenient, well-stocked gourmet supermarket, fish market, bookstore, ice cream shops, art fairs, farmers market, and pier. We really loved it here and it was hard to say goodbye. Layla is absolutely the best place to stay!

Peace, calm and beauty in the time of virus We landed in Puerto Morelos in the midst of Corona uncertainty having just decided to 1/2 our remaining days in Quintana Roo and get back to the States while we still could. Robin and Steve greeted us like old friends and though we only had one day in this gorgeous seaside town it's a day we won't forget. We arrived to a fantastic Sunday brunch and concert at the Layla cafe. We enjoyed our time on the deck, the beach, walking through town. In short, Layla is like a home and Robin and Steve are hosts who quickly become friends. We wish we had more time yet we're grateful we didn't miss out. They've created a wonderful space that has a distinct community vibe and is considerably more than just a beautiful place to stay. When we return there is no doubt we'd wish to stay with Robin and Steve again. The reviews don't lie and there's good reason Layla Guesthouse is so highly reviewed. Stay well Robin and Steve and we hope to stay with you again.

Layla Guesthouse, Cafe, Tours, Sunrise Yoga, Spa: Something for everyone! Okay, it's true. I'm a Layla Guesthouse groupie. Love this place and it's owners. The guesthouse is small but a true treat . But, if you don't stay there, one should stop by soon after arrival to plan what activity one wants to be involved in at Layla. For me, this trip is was all about sunrise Yoga! Yep, 7 a.m. on the rooftop deck as the sun rises. I don't even like Yoga and I become a convert. There are different teachers and the chef is also an instructor and she can tell you all the different types. I fell in love with Kundalini Yogo with Sasha. But, any type of Yoga at Layla for the morning person, whether you like yoga or not, is a must. I'm having fun in NYC with my "Steve" haircut. Getting compliments everywhere I go. If nothing else at Layla, I don't miss a Steve or Naomi haircut. Marco was not in town, but if he was, I wouldn't miss his massage either. There are Cenote plus tours by Robin, talks, movies, excellent fare, music on weekends and for me the guesthouse dweller, the hammock in the very back of the back yard to just chill. Love that space. Thank you Layla for another wonderful escape. Miss you already.

Best place in Town near the beach What a wonderful place. The eggs Benedict are the best I’ve had. There was entertainment more than one night. The jungle tour and wood carvers village, cenote swim and lunch with a Myan family was the highlight of our trip. My husband and I are going in a week. Can’t wait to do it all again. The hosts are wonderful and make you feel so cared for. Truly a gem and a must see. Located on a quiet street, so relaxing.

"A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN" We had a trip planned for Playa Del Carmen and ended up coming in two days early so we could visit Puerto Morelos as we had heard alot about the area. Prior to leaving we joined "friends of puerto moleros" on facebook so we could have access to local information. Upon landing at Cancun airport, we sent a message out asking for where to stay in puerto moleros and we got several replies suggesting "Layla Guest House". We decided to give it a try so off we went. Needless to say, we fell in love with Layla Guesthouse, the staff and the owners. The best way I can describe it? "A little slice of heaven"! After 3 days at Layla we went to Playa because we had a reservation we had already paid for..... but after 3 nights in Playa, we called the owners and asked if they had any vacancies because we wanted to come back. We got the last room again so we packed, left Playa early, and spent our last 3 days back at Layla Guest House! Layla Guest House is perfect for those who want to get away from the everyday stress back home. A place where you meet amazing, wonderful people who make you feel welcome. A place where the food is made from scratch and cooked up to perfection every single time. A place where you can totally relax and appreciate the simple things in life. A place filled with the meaning of living life to the fullest. Coming from a girl who only stays in posh hotels, I can honestly say, you wont be disappointed! if you are looking for flashy, fancy, don't come here. If you are looking for a real escape where you can take in the fresh ocean air, sleep like a baby at night and celebrate life with amazing people, then this is your spot. The rooms are beautiful and you will also love the rooftop pool and bar. The open air restaurant on the first floor is fantastic. Activities include yoga, movie night and live music. You'll fall asleep at the end of the day totally relaxed and thankful for the experience and it will be hard to leave here. We had the pleasure to get to know the owners Robin and Steve who are truly special folks. Combine Layla Guest House and Puerto Moleros and you have the perfect vacation!

Mi casa e su casa Layla guest house was a truly beautiful experience . The attention to detail that Steve and Robin put into building their dream home really shows ! They have different events such at Salsa parties, guest singers , guided tours , great scuba connections . There is a salon, massage room, cute lil pool, cafe, roof top yoga, an amazing bar with a spectacular view of the ocean all in the same space . This is def a vacation spot not to be missed . The staff there does an excellent job making your stay memorable . I need to go back

Best massage from Marco👍 I am not staying at Layla‘s as a guest but I frequent their establishment for The many value added services they offer. Today I had a fantastic massage by the amazing Marco who comes in from Cancun to see clients in the second floor spa area at this guesthouse/restaurant/hair salon/spa. The massage table and room are very comfortable and Marco is a consummate professional, fluent in English and very well trained in his craft. I have a partial tear in my right rotator cuff and worry about getting a massage with someone that doesn’t understand anatomy or someone that I can’t explain my injury to because of the language barrier. This is not an issue with Marco on either count. He works very deeply but somehow gives you relief without causing pain like some other deep tissue massage that I’ve had. There are many options for massage in this little town but I highly recommend contacting Layla’s for an appointment with Marco!
