I stayed here for 8 nights and was the only guest for most of the week. The manager was very friendly and helpful. He even removed a gigantic grass hopper from my room! My room was spotless and clean and very spacious. I could hang laundry to dry. My room had a fan which was much needed! You can hear... More

We were placed here by the management at La Loma Linda property which was hosting a yoga retreat. La Loma Linda was filled, so they have a cooperative agreement with the VE owner for accommodations. This is an older property but is basically well-kept, clean, and tidy. The other reviews about the roosters, barking dogs, and crying babies are accurate.... More

I don't recommend anybody to stay at Villa Escondida. It's isolated and you can easily get assault at night . To get to the Villa Escondida, you have to walk a rutted dirt track and on Sundays there are drunk Mexicans men lying on the floor. Few weeks ago there was a robbery too, So I decided this place wasn't... More

Maybe it's me, but I thought the descriptions made it sound like it was a stroll to the beach and restaurants. Granted I could hear (not see) the ocean in the distance, but a stroll it's not, especially at night when you have to negotiate rutted dirt roads in the dark. Overall I found the atmosphere surly and the surroundings... More

I stayed in one of the bungalows for six weeks and it was clean, compact, and had a nice little kitchenette. I felt well looked after and liked the location (6-7 minutes walk from the beach) as it got me away from the loud music from the beachside bars. However, I found the villa itself to be extremely noisy and... More

Villa Escondida is off the beach, and that is a good thing! The beach in Zipolite can be noisy, both the party scene and the waves crashing. Many of the beach rooms in Zipolite are really substandard. After a long day in the sand, it is wonderful to take that 5 minute walk to Juliana´s paradise. The compound is completely... More

Guliania has spent decades building & improving her residencia, Villa Escondida. The Villa has a lot charm - beautiful terraced stone work & landscaping overwhelm the 1st time visitor. She rewards long-stay guests w/ 1/2 prices. Turi, the general manager & evening cook is great - warm & welcoming. Guiliana is stern & demanding, but if she didn't run a... More

The place is nice: it's on top of the hills surrounding Zipolite beach, just 10 minutes walking far from the beach. Rooms are clean, almost everyone has bathroom and some of them also has a kitchen. We stayed in bungalow with a beautiful view of the ocean, where you can see amazing sunsets. Internet connection is quite good, there is... More

If you expect fresh towels on your bed everyday and a perfectly sanitized room, this is not the place for you. But if you like funkier hotels, with a little soul, good light, and decent price, this is a great option. It's a short walk to the beach, the only noise that could keep you up is a nearby rooster....
