A mostly good stay. Very helpful in booking VivaAerobus tickets for me. Easy to get to and from airport Rooms are a bit rougher/more basic than the photos may indicate. Our housekeeper was fantastic, a good cleaner and lovely. Though calmer than other beaches, getting in and out of the water can still be rough, water temp was good. The... More

Great view above maybe the best beach between Alaska and Ushuaia on the Pacific. Nice pool and attention to detail on construction. The Colorado room is absolutely the best for views perfectly framing the beach scene below. Outstanding bedding.

Beautiful location, facilities and food - never wanted to leave! Located about a 3 minute taxi from town, these villas overlook the most beautiful beach - carrizalillo beach - a cove with pristine aqua water and local palapas from which to rent chairs and order cold drinks. Our room, Mitla, overlooked the beach with a terrace. The bed was sensational.... More

We stayed in the Holanda villa, which is in a great location, near the bar and overlooking the water. The patio was wonderful. Just note that you have to walk down a lot of stairs to get to the beach. That said, the beach below was beautiful and not too crowded. There are bikes, boogie boards, surfboards, and snorkeling gear... More

The plant is well kept and the setting is great. Nice and quiet resort an inexpensive cab ride to Puerto Escondido. 167 steps down to the beach,a bit hard on these 64 year old knees but a worthwhile climb both up and down. The on site restaurant is quite good too.

My friend and I stayed at Villas Carrizalillo for seven nights. It was an excellent experience. The location is excellent, in a quiet area on a cliff directly above Playa Carrizalillo. There is a private staircase down to the beach. Bikes, surf boards, and boogie boards are available. The staff is friendly and helpful. They can set you up with... More

I agree with all the positive comments regarding the hotel. I found the stairs to the beach hard to negotiate going down and going up. Anyone with physical limitations might find them very daunting. Handrails would make all the difference. I had to negotiate the stairs VERY carefully. The beach was absolutely stunning and the water was warm and very... More

The Villas Carrizalillo is beautiful with access to a great beach. The on- site restaurant is very good. Staff friendly and helpful. Many speak both English and Spanish. Terrace bar is great place to watch sunsets; great bar tender. The Villas are beautiful, many with private terraces and ocean views. On- site owners. Well managed and maintained.

We first stayed at Villas Carrizalillo in early 2013, and then returned in late 2013 to finalize plans for our destination wedding.
