OK…the apartment…I want desperately to keep this place a secret…I shush on all on the board that speak of it…but…that is not fair to all of you and certainly not fair to the people who make a living from the place. Club Yebo...from now on known only as the apartment. There are many options here to suit many different travelers…from very small inexpensive one room units to one bedroom or two bedroom, full kitchen, living room and dining room units all at very reasonable price points. We stay in unit 45…the one bedroom suite named the Passion Suite. We book the following year as soon as we leave so do not even bother trying…ha ha…anyway…here is a quick tour…

It is hard to even tell from the street that it is there…there is no signage…I have removed it all…



A closer look…



There is an office as you enter…



Then rooms all round on both ground and second levels…but…take a right up to the pool…



There are five units around the pool…two studios…two 2 bedrooms apartments…and one 1 bedroom apartment…FaRuBa…Buggirl…have dibs on the studios…I have dibs on the one bedroom…so the rest of you can fight it out in Feb / Mar for the remaining two bedroom suites…











The apartment itself is a nice one bedroom…living area…dining area…full kitchen…bathroom and nice balcony overlooking the pool…but none of you would like it…really…look elsewhere and ignore the photos and all that I have to say about it…


















OK…that’s it…stop asking about Club Yebo…it’s booked…you won’t like it…

Well then…where were we…oh ya…nice afternoon stroll yesterday on the beach going north…past the Royal…Mamitas…Kool…the beach is in very good shape but very busy up there…sorry no pictures.

Went back to the apartment to clean up and have a pre dinner wine…sensing a trend here…then off to La Famiglia for dinner. Very nice Italian place at 10th and 10th …two levels…front row seating on either is recommended.
We ordered the pasta sampler plate…cheese gnocchi…meat ravioli…lasagna…and also order a mushroom pizza along with two glasses of very drinkable Mexican wine…all in $450 pesos…









Wandered back to the apartment for a glass of wine and called it a night…another very nice night in Playa…sonofdob

Thanks Dan, the beach at Yan & Ten's looks better than I dared hope. Mind you, I may have a biased eye (but I was impressed). .

You've given a great summary of Club Yebo. You may have to wear a disguise for a few days so Club Yebo regulars won't be able to hunt you down and punish you but as you say, it's only fair to share the info. Now don't do it again. ....

See you guys in a few days....

Had the worst margaritas at Bad Boys yesterday 200 pesos including tip, sort of lime flavoured water. Had the best ever margaritas at El Fogon on 30th.

Nice photos of Club Yebo...walked by there many times and never noticed it. It looks very nice.

We ate at La Famiglia back in 2011. The service was excellent and the pizza was very good. We ate on the second level overlooking 10th. The pasta sampler seemed a bit off in taste...but everyone reviews it well so it must have just been that one night.

The beach looks great near Yan & Ten.

It looks windy on the cams today.

Stayed in that same unit a couple of years back before they added units and changed the entrance. We liked the unit, but the pool was empty the whole week. They didnt mention it. Good thing we are beach people. Coming back to Yebo in May in a Studio Deluxe. Sorry your secret was out...
