Very nice, stylish and comfortable bungalows, right on the beach. Great spot, laid back atmosphere, awesome see with super waves while still swimmable. Good service at Punta Placer, a problem with the fan was fixed immediately. Nice small restaurant with good food, perfect breakfast. The place is run by Claire, and her husband (a French couple) runs the surf school...

A friend and I we're recommend this place and were disappointed. We called to arrange a twin room only to arrive to double. The owner Claire had forgotten to put us in a twin but only had doubles available. Not a big deal. Room was nice but no hot water and the mosquito nets didn't go all the way round...

Went for a long walk and opted for here as places to eat shut down early in these parts. If you were staying here it would be a fine option. A lot more hotel like and americanised than the Cabañas over in Mazunte. As it was quiet, there was one lady taking order and also cooking! But to be fair...

I loved Punta Placer. It was the perfect location on the San Agustinillo beach. Not too far from the part of the beach where the waves weren’t that big and in from on that rock, the perfect spot for Sunset. The rooms are beautiful, super clean. I had a room on the second floor in front of the beach and...

Thanks to the magazine "Mexico Desconocido" I had the chance to discover San Agustinillo, on the coast and this place: Punta Placer! WON-DER-FUL. I stayed in the cabana "Granadillo", top floor, front row in front of the ocean: what a view! A dream. The key words: just enjoy the beach, the ocean, the lovely cabanas (really clean, modern, safe, no...

Of all the little cabanas on San Agostinillo beach, Punta Placer is far and away the prettiest, nicest, cleanest, most charming, well run, well looked after. Sit on your verandah on deck chairs which rock(!) and look at the waves coming in, calmly in the morning and more lively in the afternoon. Walk the beach to Mazunte and in the...

This is a boutique hotel with bungalows right on the beach, Incredible experience with opening the door of your room to the beach and Pacific Ocean, lovely swimming right in front of the hotel, no crowds and beautiful beaches for long walks.

Cabañas Punta Placer provides a delightful location in San Agustinillo. Walk out your door and you're barely 30 yards from the water, on a gorgeous little bay with deep tidal changes. And you're just 10 minutes from Zipolite (the hippy haven with shops, restaurants, and clothing-optional bathing) and five minutes from Mazunte, with its Mexican National Turtle Center, its annual...
