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 50th Birthday
Loved our time in Puerto Morelos..
Our room was perfect.
Cafe was delicious.
Steve and Robin were awesome!
Can’t wait to make it back there for more of the beautiful beach, great food, and tequila & sangrita outside on the rooftop bar.
Beautiful oasis in Puerto Moralos
Great accommodations, easy, convenient to town. Anything I needed Robin and Steve were able to accommodate. I would highly recommend Layla and Puerto Moralos overall.
Many thanks for the Thumbs Up amigo..... We were happy to share the place with you.
This is a most wonderful place to vacation. I love everyone here they are welcoming, warm, and friendly,. We were totally taken care of, any needs attended to. We WILL be back again. As my husband says, “this was the vacation I was looking for”.
And you will be met with open arms...! Hurry on back now
Super cute place with great ammenities. The hosts are friendly and responsive
We greatly enjoyed staying at Layla guesthouse. Like many smaller quirky places, Layla has some things to get used to. The key to the suite was difficult and finicky and took us a couple of days. The roof deck and dunk pool is a great feature and we used it almost everyday. Once in a while the owners would tour people around or send non-guests up by themselves, so don’t expect total privacy.
Thank you for your comments. We are working on the key/lock situation with the local locksmith. We appreciate your feedback. You are right that the rooftop is essentially a public place for those lucky ones who know about it! With the yoga classes open to the public, the area is as well.
We enjoyed very much this little town Puerto Morelos witch is very vibrant and alive and so happy to be staying at Layla. Steve and Robin are beautiful kind people and very graciously introduced us to the area and best restaurants. Robin’s tour to cenote was exceptional. He chose the most beautiful and unique cenote and put together quit an incredible tour with walk through the jungle and authentic Mayan lunch. We were marveling that everything our hosts recommended was just great, including a healing massage with a very talented and incredible Marcos.
Thank you very much for everything. We’ll be back.
We look forward to your return ! Thanks for taking the time to share your comments here....it's a help !
Highly Recommended! December 29-January 6, 2019
My husband and I stayed 8 nights in 'Selva' at Layla Guesthouse. We rated the "shower room"... the best "room" in town. Selva had the feel of indoor/outdoor living and we could step out of our room to enjoy the outdoor area including a cactus and palm garden + a hammock. The ocean breezes were our air conditioning.
The pool has a wonderful view of the ocean and great place to see the sunrise.
Robin and Steve were very friendly, inviting, helpful and knowledgeable. Steve cut my husbands' hair on a moments notice at his salon on site, "Salon Del Mar". We really enjoyed the Mayan Nature Experience/Adventure and learning about the history of Puerto Morelos. We enjoyed walking to our destinations in Puerto Morelos and also renting bicycles.
My only regret is that I didn't take in a yoga class or two at the very top of Layla's, so I will come back to do that soon.
