This is a true paradise where you lose touch with the humdrum of a busy life and are cocooned into a natural world of peace. I shall start with the rooms (Palafitos) . The lagoon rooms (cheapest) are set amid shrubbery and palm trees with lovely views of the lagoon and an explosion of bird life. They are very private,... More

Nature has provided this hotel with everything you could ever want, and the hotel has gone out of its way to preserve it in pristine condition. that having been said, the accommodation provided does not meet the standards one would expect. It's one thing to have artfully rusty taps, but when the bath fills with brown water that's quite another... More

I have never had a vacation like the one I had this past January at Hotelito Desconocido. My only regret is that we did not stay longer! We arrived a few days after a hurricane swept through the area and we were surprised to find everything so calm and beautiful. The service is compared to none other, you will not... More

I don't have time to write a long review, this is quite simply the greatest hotel experience I've ever had. If you can go please do. It's worth every penny and you will never forget the magical setting not to mention the once in a life time experience of living by candle light only after dark. The food is outstanding-... More

Beautifully renovated hut/bungalows! Quiet simple luxury - in the purest form. Not really a place for kids or people who want a lot of organized activities. A place for those who want to read in their hammocks, beach walk on completely isolated and immense stretches of oceanfront, and if you are lucky, see the baby turtles hatch!

I have been here three times. It is an amazing place on Earth and has recently gone through a total upgrade. The palifitos are better, the restaurant is opened up, the spa is sublime. I will go here every year until i die!!! A must see.

This wonderful village of huts is located in Costalegre Jalisco, Mexico. I really felt like I was "somewhere else" when I was at this amazing resort. Someone has an excellent imagination to have created both the whole resort as well as each individual hut! There are 27 "stilt houses" that are scattered around a sandy series of lagoons. Each one...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotelito Desconocido means “little unknown hotel.” And this sanctuary reserve and spa, hidden along Mexico’s perfectly pristine Costalegre, is an ecological wonderland of virgin beaches and blue lagoons—with the Sierra Madre Occidental as a stunning backdrop. Built to resemble an enchanting fishing village, the hotel consists of individual, thatched-roof palafitos, lit by candlelight and perched along the beach and lagoon, accessible via winding wooden walkways and boats. It’s a magical place to completely disconnect from the world and feel sequestered in sheer luxury, whether enjoying a seaside massage, dining on fresh seafood or horseback riding at the water’s edge. ... more   less
