We are experienced travelers and know that, too often, the reality doesn't match the promise. At Playa Escondida, our experience was the opposite. The location is gorgeous, private, protected, uncrowded. The accommodations are stunning - this is not for you if you are looking for corporate luxury but if you want a magical, authentic feel of the beach and jungle... More

Beautiful location with fantastic sunsets and very nice accommodations. The staff was great and, very attentive, they served great drinks and delicious food! Infinity pools and hot tubs that overlook the ocean and a complete full spa offer the ultimate relaxation. The perfect location for a great getaway!

We have just come back from 4 nights stay at Playa Escondida. Our cabana was nestled in the jungle and we travelled to the restaurant and beach via a golf buggie supplied by the hotel. The setting was exquisite, the beach magical, the food amazing and the service second to none. The staff were friendly and relaxed and very accommodating.... More

We visited Playa Escondida in early May for 1 week and were absolutely blown away - by the beauty of the location, the food in the restaurant, the service of the staff, the drinks, the grounds, the wilderness, etc., etc. It was everything we hoped for and more. We read probably 50+ reviews before coming here, so we had a... More

I just visited in March, it was my fourth stay and this morning made my reservation for November. Yes, in July I made my reservation (and paid a deposit) for November. My wife and I love the beach rooms, especially SOL 1. She uses earplugs and I do not as I love the ocean sound. The rooms are great, each... More

Thank you for another insightful review. We love having you here and always look forward to your interesting comments. March 17 was the Monday of an important Mexican three-day holiday so I had my three young boys here.

We stayed in Studio, 93 steps up into the jungle with a beautiful sea/tree view. The accommodations were unique, and very peaceful. The service was wonderful. I especially enjoyed my ride with Manuel and my massage with Eba (sp). The beach is clean and the grounds well maintained. Don't miss a day trip with AlleyCat. Playa Escondida is a very... More

We came to Playa Escondida after spending 3 days in Puerto Vallarta for our wedding. We then honeymooned in Sayulita and Punta Mita. We stayed in the Guest House at Playa Escondida and will return. It was the first week of the low season so we pretty much had the entire place to ourselves. The food was AWESOME and I... More
