You would NEVER know this little oasis exists from the view on the street. Heck, some taxi drivers haven't heard of it. PERFECT!!! Hidden Gem X100. We were so lucky to have this splendid B&B all to ourselves the second week of August 2015. Magda and David are the best! They are both so inviting and full of helpful information... More

My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights in July with the sole purpose of scuba diving. Magda and David are hugely welcome, offering experienced, wise and useful advice on all rentals and activities. The B&B is surrounded by several excellent restaurants and scuba centres. It is only possible to get here from the airport by taxi due to... More

We had a great stay at Villa Escondida the last week in June. Spent 6 days enjoying the oasis Magda and David have built after morning diving. Entering from a street a couple of blocks off the Plaza, you step through the entry to the garden area and forget the street activity is there. The pool was wonderfully cool—a welcome... More

Spent 7 days at the Villa Escondida B&B in Cozumel in late June / early July. David & Magna are wonderful hosts. The location is excellent, the rooms are very nice, and the pool and grounds are a great place to relax after diving. On a scale of 5, Magna gets a 6 for the breakfast she serves every morning....

The b&b is owned by a couple who is very friendly and caring. Magda makes great breakfast in the mornings - real Mexican breakfast :) They b&b has 4 nice and clean rooms and a pool. It is located in the center of Cozumel- which allows you to walk everywhere. Still the place is quiet, allows you to relax... Magda... More

The rooms are large, the location is good, the garden is pleasant and David and Magda are consummate hosts. Magda really went out of her way to make our stay excellent including driving us around town to talk to the Ecology department to go and watch turtles laying eggs on the beach. The breakfasts, as previously noted by other reviewers,... More

Spent 4 lovely days here with Magda and David. The room is immaculate and quite large. The location could not be better for enjoying the town restaurants and shopping. Easy access to taxis or rentals to go the the beach. Magda is a fantastic cook and the breakfasts were simply amazing. I loved the courtyard and the flowers and birds.... More

My husband and I and 23 year old grandson visited Cozumel the end of March in order to do some bone fishing and deep see fishing (Tres Hermanos). During the planning, the biggest decision was where to stay as we were totally unfamiliar with the area. Well, based on the reviews, we definitely made the right decision and stayed at... More
