About Robin Brown
After living and teaching around the world for a couple of decades in New York, Kyoto, and Paris, we decided to integrate all our travel experience in Europe, Asia, and Africa into one comfortable, fully-functioning guesthouse. We built it from the ground up using both local Mayan techniques and design help from a Mexico City trained local designer.
Robin Brown purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Robin Brown chose Puerto Morelos
The guesthouse overlooks a beautiful beach and local schoolyard, so we built the studios each with their own gardens, and left space for the beach breezes to caress the patios. We offer a delightful look at the Mexican beach life.
What makes this Apartment unique
Layla is just steps from the beach, and 2 mins walk to the central square, the heart of the village. This charming fishing village offers a true Mexican experience, beyond the All-Inclusives, and affords optimal relaxation. We offer a RE-creation vacation where you can unwind and enjoy the hair salon services of New York/Paris stylist Steve, delve into the delicious cuisine at our cafe, and explore short vacation classes in languages ( including Mayan) , culture and local ecology. We like to say our guests return home more 'zen', more knowledgable, and more beautiful.....

Awesome home away from home!
My hosts, Steve and Robin immediately made me feel at home. The Café Layla offered healthy meals with an atmosphere unique to them. Very friendly staff. The location was perfect within walking distance to the beach and village activities. It’s in the small things, their authenticity, their relationship with local people as well as with their guests, that remains with you and makes you want to come back. It contributed to making my trip a memorable one. I feel grateful!
everything about it was perfect
Would definitely go back. Everything was perfect, no complaints, they even have coffee creamer, which is a big deal when traveling out of US. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Mexico. Robin is so helpful and knowledgeable about the area and makes himself available. Bed is comfortable, close to beach, restaurants and bar but isn't noisy!
Wow, that is what I would call a THUMBS UP !! You are welcome any time, happy to have you with us ! We were thrilled to learn recently that we have been ranked NATIONALY here in Mexico, Number 22 in the country....out of the thousands of guesthouses across the country !!!, and in the top 1% globally in our category ! Your enthusiasm is what has done that for us ! Thank You !!
Delightful slice of paradise
Layla Guesthouse is.a small and delightful place at an ideal location in town. We could walk a minute or 2 to many restaurants, live music, bike rentals, shoppes, and the town center where the local children were often playing soccer and skating. Our room overlooked a garden, but we could walk up the steps to lounge in the dipping pool or to the very top to see a spectacular 360 degree view of the ocean and town.
The food in the cafe was the best we ate all week - very fresh and made to order and some days there was live music. There were a lot of activities that Robin, the owner, planned all through the week - you could do something about everyday. Our favorite was the Cenote trip - a don't miss Mayan experience like nothing I've ever done.
We had a wonderful time in Puerto Morelos - the beaches are very wide and walkable. Our hosts even waved goodbye to us as we drove off in the taxi. It was like leaving our second home :)
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about Layla Guesthouse. You are a pleasure to host ! We look forward to that pleasure again one day soon.... Cheers !
Cozy and comfortable with an eye for design.....
King bed is very comfortable and the kitchenette very practical, though the food in the cafe out front is even better !
Plan to stay at Layla Guest House Again
Would definitely stay again! The property looks exactly as depicted in the VRBO photos - if they attracted you attention, you'll like the property. Also, a great way to experience the local culture, and a convenient location. We rented bikes, but the walk to the town square is less than 5 minutes. Very much enjoyed the company of our hosts, very gracious and knowledgeable of the area. Strongly recommend Layla Cafe; the breakfasts we ate there were exceptional.
perfect for the NOT A RESORT crowd
if you want to stay in a real home among local people and still be well taken care of, Layla Guesthouse is for you. we loved our attractive and comfortable garden studio and the location only a couple of blocks from the plaza in Puerto Morelos, but still far enough for privacy and quiet. Robin was overseas during our stay but he made sure that all of our needs were attended to, and he gave us some great advice about enjoying the area. the "sky pool" on the fourth floor overlooking the ocean is fabulous! we can't comment on the cafe as it was closed for Semptember, but i'm betting it's good, and there are lots of good restaurants nearby. Puerto Morales itself is a wonderful place to stay. overall, highly recommended!
Layla Guesthouse is rated #1 B&B in Puerto Morelos! It offers our guests the perfect REcreation vacation, with time to explore and recreate the interests and relaxation of previous less stressful times. Layla includes a Sky Pool with view of the Caribbean from our thirs floor, a full hair salon with a spa team offering manicure/pedicure, waxing and massage services, a fresh and healthy world cuisine cafe on premises, and a learning center for short vacation-style classes in ecology and Maya and local history. It is our chosen challenge to send our guests home more zen, more knowledgable, and more beautiful ! Come recreate with us in Puerto Morelos.... !
