About Robin Brown
Finished building the guesthouse from the ground up in August 2013......lot purchased in 2006, and started construction in August 2012 - happily not a disagreeable experience as it turned out....now completed with Phase II and open since August 2013. I love sharing this wonderful area with visitors....
Robin Brown purchased this Studio in 2013
Why Robin Brown chose Puerto Morelos
Layla is located in the oldest part of town, Barrio SoMo, including the oldest port in the Yucatan, Mayan Artesan Market, and many restaurants and shops.
What makes this Studio unique
Layla is the only place in town where you can swing in a hammock, have your hair done, eat fresh world cuisine, and learn a bit of Mayan, or local ecology to appreciate your surroundings more...... Enjoy!
Pool / Spa
Beautiful property with pool and views!
This is a great guesthouse. We stayed on the bottom floor and the back garden area is very relaxing. The cafe out front is top notch with yummy breafast and lunch. Wonderful employees and the hosts go out of their way to accommodate you. Excellent cenote tour by Robbin and Steve runs a full service salon on the second floor. Great little pool on third level and an honor bar on fourth level with amazing views of the ocean and town. A yoga deck above bar with ultimate view. You will love it! We did!
Layla was a home away from home
Staying at Layla was the perfect experience for my first time in Puerto Morelos. It's nestled in a quiet part of the town just up the street from the town square. The Layla Cafe breakfast and fruit smoothies are the perfect way to start the day followed by time in the pool overlooking the ocean. After a day snorkeling or on the beach there's an option for sunset yoga on the birdsnest platform with a 360 view of the town. The hosts are welcoming, helpful, and a big part of the comfort with your stay. Already planning my trip back.
..and we are looking forward to your trip back, Jax !! Thank you for your comments that accent our location and amenities.....Hasta Pronto !
Already planning a trip back!
What a great place!
The people, the building, the owners and employees are all amazing.
If I could find one thing to complain about.. I wouldn't, it wouldn't be worth it.
We had an amazing time, we made new friends, ate great food and explored some excellent locations.
I love the location, it's a short walk into the town square, it's away from the resorts and gives you the feeling of being in a community.
We had fresh fruit smoothies every morning accompanied by amazing fresh food and great company.
Everything is fairly close yet removed so you don't feel like a tourist in a buffet line.
We enjoyed our time there and after staying couldn't think of any other place we would want to stay!
Can't wait to come back and see the finished juice bar.
Oooo la la....thank you for the thumbs UP !!! The stairs up to the Rooftop Juice bar are complete, so hurry on back ...the view is awesome !
Leave the hustle and bustle behind....
Can't say enough about Layla's and Robin and Steve and Raquel and chef Lucas and Carlos. Truly home away from home. The simplicity of life here is intoxicating. Morning coffee and ocean breeze and excellent food at Layla's cafe a few steps outside your door. Guesthouse is comfortable and you feel like you're in a jungle away from everything but yet the town is a short walk away for more great food and wonderful people. So much history and culture to learn and appreciate. I thought I lost my phone at the beach and was totally disconnected for several days....little did I know it was meant to be to further enjoy and appreciate this time away. Ironically I found it In my favorite hammock lounge area behind our guesthouse which is where my husband and I spent many quiet evenings. We loved the pool with the waterfall sound overlooking to the beautiful beach also. I could go on and on...five star rating! Cheers to Layla's!!!
Oh and I can't forget Lola and Rio... ; )
You two were so appreciative of what we are trying to do here...you really got it and shared your thoughts.... Such a positive vibe coming from you both !!!
Beautiful, relaxing week with awesome food at Layla Guesthouse
My husband and I enjoyed our week in Puerto Morelos and Layla Guesthouse tremendously! Robin and Steve are very gracious and helpful hosts. The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The food at the cafe is excellent - can't go wrong with anything on the menu, although we recommend the watermelon/mint and lemon/mint juices, any of the egg dishes and the BoBun. The Mayan Culture and Ceynote Tour was a great way to spend a day walking through the jungle and walking through and swimming in beautiful caves. And we had the clean, beautiful beach, mere steps away, felt like our own private beach. Although the property is only a few short blocks from the town square, it was quiet and restful. Exactly what we were looking for!
A great place to start our trip. Rooms very spacious and environment very chilled and friendly wish we could have spent more time and done yoga on the rooftop while watching the sunset.
People come here in part because Puerto Morelos offers the best snorkeling in the area on the 2nd largest reef in the world. Day trips to amusement parks including, zip lines, paintball, horseback riding, nature reserves, nature parks, cenotes, Mayan villages and many more activities to supplement the major hammock - beach pastime. Be sure to ask about Layla's Mayan Nature Experience Cenote Tour !!!
Additional pricing information
We are easy going and hope to treat you as we would want to be treated.....just as we expect our guests to respect our Layla as they want to be respected.
