I enjoyed staying 4 nights at this hotel in the Zicatela Beach area of Puerto Escondido in February 2014. Travelling on my own, I wanted to be able to chat in English. I found this decent hotel, with swimming pool and restaurant, for $400 pesos a night single. Just don't expect a Mexican experience. There are a lot of older... More

My wife stayed here for 2 weeks while on a Global Village Build in the area. Firstly and the ONLY bad thing we would say about the place was her rooms proximity to a Bar across the ally. Once I arrived she joined me on the opposite side of the courtyard and it was much quieter. The service was fantastic,... More

The wi fi worked. The pools were pleasant - not crystal clear but adequate The staff even gave us a free ride to the airport when... More

This hotel is nicely located in a funky neighbourhood near a great surfing beach lined with good, inexpensive restaurants. The rooms were very basic, but clean. That's the good news. The bad news is: the pool was NASTY, so dirty you couldn't see the bottom. The day we left a young man was cleaning the scum ring with a cleaner... More

We stayed here for one night with the intention of staying for a few more but decided after one night not to leave. While the pool looked nice the room was dirty and the staff not very friendly. Wouldn't recommend this place.

Beach: "Playa Zicatela" is definitely one of the best surfing spots/beaches on earth ... for advanced surfers! Don't (!) go there for swimming or if you're a surfing beginner, but choose e.g. "La Punta", if you surfed before and want to try a fast hollow point-break wave with left direction, sandy/rock bottom and normal length or "Carrizalillo", if you're a...
