Extravangant luxury on a great surfing beach. We stayed here for little over 2 weeks working on a surf film in all of East Oaxaca. Some of the best sessions we had in the rivermouth break right in front of the house. The staff worked day and night to give us breakfast at 6am and dinner at 10pm. The food... More

We rented the Villa with a group of a friends. The place was amazing. We loved the house, the beach and the staff. We felt like royalty. The staff was attentive, yet not on top of you. I like that since I am not used to being waited on. After our week there, we felt like the staff were old... More

My husband, 9 month old son, and I recently had the opportunity to stay at Villa Escondida. From the moment we arrived, it was apparent that we were in store for a week of luxury. The staff greeted us at the front gate and took our luggage right into the villa. They then proceeded to give us the grand tour... More

Our family rented the entire villa for the week (seven of us). It is the most beautiful villa/home I have ever stayed. The view of the ocean is awesome. Each night we would open the doors to our private terrace and listen to the sound of waves crashing. We had arranged for Defino to be our personal chef for the... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Escondida for my vacation just last week. It was by far the most enjoyable 7 day vacation. Not only did the staff go above & beyond to take care of me but the view from my suite was breathtaking. People (myself included) have invested in those "Sounds of the ocean" recordings to... More

If you want to be completely spoiled in generous luxury in what is the closest we have ever experienced to what must be paradise, stay at Villa Escondida in Hualtulco, Mexico! Delfino, Claudia, Rosa and Abi treated us like Royalty providing the best in cooking, cleaning and full attention to every detail. We wanted for nothing. Margaritas delivered poolside, fresh...

We stayed at the Villa in Feb 2014 for one week. This was our first time to Huatulco, we were a little unsure given that we had always stayed in Mayan all inclusives before. From the first moment, all of our expectations were exceeded. Delfino, Claudia, Rosa, and Abbe were fantastic. The meals were unbelievable. Fresh fruit each morning, freshly... More

Hi Mark, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you got to sample the cooking at the Villa. Delphino has really raised the bar with his creations and presentation. Great names for the iguanas but I wonder what happened to IGUAJUANITA..:) Hope to see you back soon. Andy, Proud proprietor of Villa Escondida More
