...the Eagle's Nest, that is, at El Jardin. We were last here 2 years ago on an extended family holiday when 3 generations took over the entire property for week. How lovely to return, just the 2 of us, to our romantic little room with the incredible view. The connection to nature is very wonderfully immediate as there are no...

We stayed at El jardin in the casa banana. We wanted to stay in a "treehouse" for our daughters 4th birthday. She was so happy with the experience. They recommend bug spray and I'd agree. The place was very clean and The caretaker Tony was very helpful and super friendly! I will definitely return! I do not recommend this place...

We stayed for a week. The view is outstanding. The hospitality was outstanding. The food was so incredibly full of flavor. Oliver, our Chef surpassed any and all culinary expectations. Every meal was created to our personal preferences and very fresh and healthy. Fresh caught fish made into fish tacos and add home made salsa with all local fruits along...

Loved everything about our stay in the Eagle's Nest at El Jardin. The view from our porch high above the rocks and ocean was so awesome by day and provided great star gazing opportunities by night. Waking up in our swinging bed with views of the ocean and breezes was exactly what we wanted. Having the spacious common area to...

I cannot recommend El Jardin highly enough. The rustic charm and warmth of the hosts is incomparable. I went to Yelapa with absolutely no idea of what to expect and I was blown away by the beauty of the area. The water is just feet away from the front gate and the snorkeling is gorgeous. It's a bit of a...

We finished up our first ever Mexican vacation with five days at El Jardin. Prior to Yelapa we had spent nine days at a more traditional B&B north of Vallarta. Both were wonderful and together made for the perfect vacation. The Casa Bamboo is exquisitely romantic and a nice private place to just hang out. The main kitchen/meeting room is...

You step off the boat onto a shallow surf of playa Isabel. You shoulder your bag and make your way up to the rocky path that runs just above the breaking waves. Pick your way about 300' along the surf -watch for crabs skittering away- duck left under the palapa roof, and you're in paradise. As delighted as we were...

Our family had a very comfortable experience in Casa Estrella and we appreciated the self contained kitchen; bed options (swinging, regular, hammock!) and rustic-chic bath/shower! The common area is lovely and great way to meet fellow travelers. Yelapa village is a short and fun walk down the donkey trail. Great snorkeling on the point; wonderful birding opportunities (saw the Military...

Perfect tree-house retreat in paradise. Overlooks ocean. Private shower and flush commode. Super friendly and courteous staff. Common area was perfect for group meals, yoga and dancing or just lazing back in hammock with book. Wake up to tropical bird songs and ocean waves...missing my little piece of heaven. I will be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Jardin is an eco-friendly garden retreat with the ocean on one side and the jungle on the other. Beautiful gardens surround the open air sleeping palapas. The communal area is open anytime, where guests can mingle, relax, read, dine, lay in a hammock or play one of the many games provided. There are recycling guidelines on-site and the manager will introduce you to the communal spaces at the start of your visit. The common areas are great way to meet people and relax. We have a great local cook who is available for meals and often dinners will be arranged for guests. Our casas are a "labor of love". We have worked hard to get the casas to the state they are in and continue to work to make improvements to make them better and more comfortable for you. ... more   less
