My husband and I spent 3 lovely nights here before heading to the mainland for a work related event. We had a wonderful stay. Magda is a terrific hostess and the villa was a true oasis in the middle of town. This was a quick dive trip (Tres Pelicanos- also great) and Magda provided an early breakfast so we wouldn't...

My wife and I had met David on our last trip to Cozumel and he gave us a tour of their B&B. We loved it and knew we had found where we wanted to stay on our next visit to Cozumel. The location is in the downtown area, which works great for our easy going vacation style. Villa Escondida is... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at this establishment. Our hosts, David and Magda, were wonderful. This was our first time staying at a B&B in Mexico and we were not sure what to expect, but our concerns instantly melted away upon arrival. The breakfasts were creative and delicious and the accommodations were fantastic. If you are bored of... More

The owners David and Magda take a personal interest in you and do everything they can to make sure that your experience at their B&B and on the island is great. We stayed there at the end of their season and had the whole place to ourselves, but were give just the right balance of privacy and attentiveness by our... More

The B&B is a beautiful yard with a lovely pool and garden hidden in a very convenient part of the town. Rooms are comfortable and well-kept. Breakfast was a treat every day. Most importantly, the hosts were wonderful, friendly, helpful people!

It's no surprise that this wonderful oasis in San Miguel is Cozumel's No. 1 rated B&B. Villa Escondida in Spanish means "hidden country estate", and that's exactly what it is. It's street entrance gives no hint of the expansive nature of the tropical beauty that awaits inside. There are palm trees, beautiful flowering plants, a lovely outdoor swimming pool, and... More

David and Magda are wonderful folks, who welcome you into their homes, give you a beautiful space to relax and sleep, and also give you so many wonderful inside tips of where you might want to eat, dive or play. I would go back without hesitation. The authentic Mexican breakfasts were also a really nice touch; they really put care... More

Magda and David were awesome and the breakfasts were better than expected. Traditional fare and quite different every morning. Clean, well kept rooms and grounds with great privacy and security. The locations turned out to be perfect with all the restaurants and entertainment just a short walk away. They have bikes you can use any time and give you anything... More

This was our second visit with them, and when staying on Cozumel, we will definitely stay nowhere else. They are both such friendly and helpful people, that it is a joy to stay at their B&B. The location is perfect, right within town, and within walking distance of practically any restaurant we wanted to go to, as well as the... More

Visited during December 2014. Excellent service. Very nice place and very good location quiet and central - close to the airport, a walking distance from the main road and from diving shops. Breakfast was great. Place was cleaned everyday. Free wifi. Wonderfull service and the couple owning the place helped with everything anytime.
