This was my first time in Puerto Escondido and I must say staying at this hotel made all the difference. Most commendable about the hotel is its excellent restaurant. After heading out to the various beach palapa restaurants and being ripped-off with bad food and terrible service, we had dinner at the hotel restaurant once and never looked back! Food... More

I have for many years on spent a week or two with family and freind over Christmas at the Santa Cruz Bungalows and always enjoyed it very much. There are only eight bungalows, four in every building so you don´t see the neighbours much. The pool is nearly always alone since many take to the beach or one of the... More

My husband and I stayed for many years at the Bungalows Santa Cruz. We enjoyed having the privacy of our own swimming pool and kitchen but still having all the amenities of the main hotel. The restaurant is one of the best in Puerto and for sure has one of the best vistas of the ocean. The location is very... More

Santa Fe/Santa Cruz. We made a booking through DHR for a Junior Suite in the Santa Fe Hotel only to find that we were given a room in the adjacent Santa Cruz Bungalows, managed by the same Reception Desk. Only the next morning were we to realise that the responsibility for what turned out to be, to us, considerable discomfort... More

TYPE OF TRIP: Great place to stay if your boyfriend/husband surfs. Waves are right in front of this hotel. Lots of other side trips where he can surf, just an hour or two away via car. I found ways to exercise while he surfed. Early runs on the beach and exercise in the pool. There is a yoga studio in... More

However, we had problems from the start :) When trying to book by phone, my Mexican friend phoned first and was told that she couldn't make a reservation and that the price would be 700 pesos per night (?). I phoned right... More

I've been in Puerto Escondido several times and even when there are better hotels than this, this is the one I prefer. Of course there are cheaper (lower) hotels too but at a the low rate of $ 25-40 USD depending on the room type, you cant complaint. The pool, the personnel is nice, you have a GYM, bigger rooms...
