Peaceful, perfect location, awesome vegan cafe and great people Loved our room with plants in the bathroom; perfect amenities including kitchen. Loved the plunge pool where I laid on the big water pillows and read a book. So relaxing! Robin and Steve, the owners, were friendly, funny and helpful. Jimena, the Property Manager was super helpful, friendly and efficient. We got great recommendations for the airport transfer; snorkeling etc and more. The location is across the street from the ocean and a couple blocks from town and the grocery store. Can't wait to go back!

What a Gem I had an amazing and relaxing stay at Layla this past week and I can't wait to go back. It's a gem of a place right across from the ocean. The views and the vibe are perfect. Thank you Robin and Steve. See you again soon!!

Like visiting friends we didn’t know we had Layla’s Guesthouse is perfect in so many ways. The setting is serene, accommodations comfortable and clean and the staff so welcoming. We spent a week here and are already planning our return. Puerto Morelos is a wonderful small town to explore and Layla’s is set in the perfect place. Everything you need is within walking distance and the cafe downstairs has a delicious and varied menu. We felt welcomed the moment we stepped onto the patio—the owners are wonderful, engaging people and highly knowledgeable of the area - be sure to take the Cenote tours they offer (reviewed separately) - you will not be disappointed. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. Between the staff and the owners, it felt like visiting friends we didn’t know we had. We enjoyed moonlit evenings at the rooftop bar and in the pool that overlooks the ocean. Our room was comfortable, spacious and immaculate. There is no detail overlooked here. Also, you’ll find plenty of authentic, delicious food nearby. Between the cafe at Layla’s and the restaurants nearby, every meal was wonderful. Bottom line, this place is as close to paradise as you’ll find in the Yucatán.

A Perfect Puerto Paradise! We spent a week at Layla Guesthouse, which wasn't nearly long enough. Next time... we need to book our Layla apartment for a month! It is the perfect place to anchor while relaxing and enjoying the beach and town. Puerto Morelos is a charming fishing village with thriving shopping and restaurant opportunities. We loved waking in our light-filled apartment at Layla's to the sound of birds chirping joyfully and showering in the amazing garden shower. After a delicious breakfast we would set off for a day at the beach. There are several beach clubs within a short walk and there you can rent a comfy lounge chair under an umbrella for all day and servers are happy to bring you food and drink. We loved our lazy, sun-filled days enjoying margaritas and reading our books in the shade. Then we'd return to our Layla apartment to prepare for dinner and spend the evening star gazing on the Layla top deck and enjoying the pool. Everyone at Layla's is so kind and fun and helpful. Robbin and Steve are amazing hosts and so fun to talk with- they have such interesting life experiences! And their staff of Jamina (manager) and Sofia and Ray (at the restaurant) and Naomi (at the spa) are absolutely wonderful. The cenote and Mayan village tours led by Robbin and Paz were incredible. Definitely make sure that is on your list during your stay! I'll have to review that trip on a separate link- it's mindblowing for sure. Thank you to everyone at Layla's- we'll be back!

Magical Place, Delicious Food, Amazing Staff Layla Guesthouse is magical in every sense, and I can't wait to return! It's a creative and cultural experience in its design, intention, people, and food. The owners, Robin and Steve are wonderful and welcoming. Their enthusiasm for their guesthouse (and Puerto Morelos) is evident in the little touches throughout the property. This is a very special place. The rooms are beautifully designed with Mayan details combined with creature comforts such as comfortable king beds, pillows, bed linens, a rain shower head in the bathroom, and a kitchenette with all the necessities. My room had a hammock, books, and a nice surprise in the fridge upon arrival. I also had a drying rack, two celing fans, and plenty of storage for clothes and other supplies. I slept very well- the room was quiet and peaceful at night. The food and the staff are equally magical. I have food sensitivies and their menu was perfect for me. They offer lots gluten free and dairy free options, however, the food is seriously amazing regardless of your dietary needs/preferences. If I'd had more time, I would have tried everything on the menu! The juices, coffee, eggs, and smoothie bowl were as beautiful as they were delicious, thanks to the wonderful kitchen staff. Try the Bibimbap! Sophia is full of smiles, and has a great playlist for breakfast and lunch. Jimena and her husband are there late afternoon until closing (yummy pizzas and empanadas are on the menu), and provide exceptional service and also manage the guesthouse. They were so helpful throughout my stay! Jimena is an amazing singer, and will dazzle you with her talent. She sings during the Sunday brunch, and I believe another night duriung the week. The entertainment at Layla is a wonderful benefit of staying here! The location is great, just a short walk to the center, and a gorgeous view of the ocean (and mangrove behind) from the yoga platform. The services available just add to the thoughtfulness of this guesthouse. Gourment food, spa services, yoga classes, a small pool, and a bar/gathering place create a luxurious feel and extend the living space...all with amazing views! Thanks again to everyone at Layla; I had a wonderful week!! The Mayan Cenote Tour is unbelieveable, A MUST DO! See the specific reviews for this here:

Our Mothership! We come to Layla's guest house not just for the property but for the food and activities (sunset yoga, movie night, music, etc ...). We love this place and consider it our mothership in Puerto Morelos. They serve Bibimbap which is the best we've ever had! This says a lot as we live in San Francisco where there are lots of Korean restaurants. Thank you to all the staff of Layla Guesthouse.

Everything was special - the ambience, the view, the room, the atmosphere, the owners, the staff - everything. We felt so welcomed from the minute we arrived - we would highly recommend this guesthouse particularly if you want to get to know Puerto Morelos. The owners personally welcomed us and even recommended places for dinner.

Can't wait to go back! If you are looking for a place to stay in Puerto Morelos, look no further. Close to the beach, amazing restaurants, amazing snorkeling and the best tour guide. This place has it all. Robin, his partner Steve and their crew are amazing, helpful and friendly. Karaoke was fun, they also have movie night. On site restaurant has delicious breakfast! Do yourself a favor and book the Mayan Experience tour!
