Layla Guesthouse opened in October 2013 to provide an intimate and tropical environment from which to explore the quiet beaches of Puerto Morelos. Tropical hardwoods accent the studios designed for the indoor/outdoor living so typical here.

The front porch becomes the first room with the two beach chairs provided, then enter and sense the space created by the high ceilings, ceiling fans, and eyebrow windows. In the patio you expect to find the outdoors, but discover it screened in but open to the sky…again more of the indoor / outdoor living spaces. The King bed and hardwood desk nook look out onto an interior tropical garden, also screened. The rain showerhead highlights the bath that opens to both the garden and the patio allowing you to shower in the garden with complete privacy !

Each studio has a/c, and cable TV, WiFi and fully outfitted kitchenette complete with fridge, microwave, and gas stove. The hammock awaits, foretelling hours of peaceful reading and relaxation.
