“don't think too long - rooms are hard to book”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Beautiful small hotel with very nice pool and bar area and wonderful personnel. We stayed in Villa Llilly only for two nights, moving from Quinta Lilli (hotel owned by the same people – Adelina and Luis). We got a fabulous room with the spectacular view on the ocean and with the separate bathing room with big jacuzzi and fountain. The breakfast were delicious. Adelina - the owner is very friendly, helpful person. She is helping to arrange trips and tourist attraction such as releasing to the ocean newborn turtles or boat trips to admire dolphins or birds. She also is willing to recommend some local restaurants or dishes and I must admit we weren’t disappointed in any of her recommendations.

Room Tip: try suite on the second floor - more expensive but you will not be dissapointed

We have been to Puerto Escondido 14 times since 1990 and we really like Quinta Lili. The rates are great, the rooms are big and nice and the breakfasts are sumptuous and yummy.

We loved our stay at Villa Lili. We we there for 12 days and do not want to leave.

There was a taxi waiting for us at the airport . Ade, Luis and their staff take care of you and give deep care to the grounds and units. The grounds are both lush and spotless. There are 2 pools. One pool is good for kids to wade and the other is a 20 meter lap pool.

We were an extended family with 4 adults, 2 kids and an infant. One couple had the penthouse and the family had Balcony Room B with a King size bed and 2 single beds for the kids. There are 2 fans in that room, which is good as it gets pretty hot in Puerto Escondido.

The price was a good deal and it included breakfast. The breakfasts are fantastic. Every day, there are large bowls of fresh fruit including papaya, melon, watermelon and pineapple. There is cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit water. In addition, there are hotcakes available for the kids and each day there is a different hot breakfast. We had fish tacos, baked cheese enchiladas,omelettes and Oaxacan regional foods. Breakfast goes until 11:00, which is just wonderful for life at the beach.

It is about a 400 meter walk to the stairway down to the Carrizalillo beach. There are 167 steps, you can either take your time down and up or you can run the steps for exercise. It is our favorite beach of all time. I know that is staying a lot, as there's really lot of great beaches in the world. But, this beach is pretty special.

The Riconada business strip starts 2 blocks from the hotel and extends about 6 blocks. There are lots of options for great food - Mexican, real Italian, tacos, barbecue, chocolate, espresso, gelato, a couple bars, one with a local beer focus and a great bakery - cafe that serves the good coffee, makes flaky pastries and has traditional Mexican flood, salads, tacos and even burgers. There is also a nearby grocery for beer, chips and supplies.

We will always go back to Puerto Escondido, as long as we can. We plan to go back to Villa Lili next time.

Room Tip: Top floor unit has soaring palapa ceiling. There are real Italians running real Italian restaurants...

Great location near Carizalillo beach and the Rinconada. Fabulous breakfasts cooked fresh outdoors. Artsy rooms with comfy beds. Best of all, your host Adelina is always there to help with any travel needs you may have. This is a warm, welcoming place.

We had a really HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE staying at this "hotel", they treated is horrible. First of all, they forgot to pick us up from the airport and didnt even apologize, even when they confirmed a couple days earlier they would do so as it was "complimentary". Aside the fact that the bed's sheets were dirty (yucky) and the towels were torn with big holes in them, we stayed in the "palapa" room at the top of the house and there is not even a phone to call someone (there's not even a lobby person who'd be available 24/7). The day we left we didn't even have help to carry the luggage 3 floors down and there was no way to contact someone without going down at least 3 floors. We had an elder lady (72 yr old) visiting and the man at the door didnt know we were actually staying there (he had no clue of the guest names and is the only person at the door). This man asked her to leave and to walk 4 long blocks, during strong heat hours and to call us using a payphone as we was not going to open the door for her to talk to us. They closed the door on her and she had no other choice but to loudly call our names as she cannot walk in the sun and there was no taxis anywhere around and there's no phones at the rooms. When my husband and I went downstairs, "the lovely" Adelina was VERY rude to us and even asked me to talk to her brother on the phone. I talked to him expecting an apology. While i was having my breakfast, her brother told me in a very RUDE way that he was the owner of the house and that he wanted us to leave the "hotel". Of course i told him i would not do so (why would i? nonsense). It was our last night there and we didnt have time to change to another hotel as we had a tour already scheduled for that morning (only reason why I even stayed there after their rudeness). The owner was yelling on the phone
and told me he would call the Police for us to leave. He was not reasonable, why would he even call the police without a reason? The whole time we were very polite considering their rudeness. I told him to to ahead and call the police and of course that was the end of it as Adelina and him had no reason to Threaten me. Other guests arrived for breakfast right after this and we were very nice as we didnt even complain loudly not to ruin their breakfast the way Adelina and her brother ruined ours. When we insisted to pay for the remaining night, nobody could charge us because we were told Adelina was not there. When we got back home we emailed the owner asking for the total and an account number to deposit the last night due. He never even had the decency to reply back (and we emailed on that same email address before so theres no excuses). We were and still are willing to pay for that remaining night. We want yout to be Aware that Adelina and her brother are "nice" when they want to, but if the simplest issue occurs, they do not know how to react and treat people. They are very arrogant and I was never ever threatened before as I was at this place. If i had a little more time to wash on them, i would have called the police myself. Villa Lili is so far away from the beach is not worth it to stay there. Theres so many beautiful places to lodge in Puerto Escondido, so why stay at this place where theres not even a record of whos staying there. I would greatly recommend other options such as Casa de los Angeles, Blater Hotel, hotel Santa Fe, Villas Carrizalillo, Hotel La Hacienda. Ive been going to Puerto Escondido for years and Im telling you from many years experience that this made-up hotel is not worth it. God forbid something happens to you there and they do not know the correct way to react.

We spent 1 week at this exquisitely designed small hotel in early February, 2014. We had a large room with a balcony from which we enjoyed the glorious sunsets. Breakfast, served under a shady palapa poolside, consist of amazing fruit along with a hot daily Mexican breakfast dish, made with beautifully prepared local recipes and ingredients. The serene, grandmotherly Irene presides over the stove top, giving each guest her warm individual attention. Puerto Escondido has a scarcity of waterfront accommodation located on calm swimming beaches, so the clean, beautiful pool at Villa Lilli makes possible those quick early morning and pre-dinner dips that are the icing on the cake of a tropical holiday. When the time is right, a selection of amazing beaches with safe swimming are an easy walk from Villa Lilli. The excellent restaurants of the Rinconada are only a block away. The gracious patroness Adelina is available for tips on restaurants and to assist her guests in anyway necessary. This hotel deserves its outstanding reviews.

My husband and I stayed at the Villa Lili on a trip to Puerto Escondido for a wedding. We were very pleased with the service before we even arrived. The staff was extremely helpful-they even helped us book our plane tickets from Mexico City to Puerto Escondido. Everyone there was very nice and accommodating. The breakfast every morning was delicious. One of the greatest parts was the easy walk to the best swimming beach-Carrizalillo. With Adelina's help, we ate at great restaurants close by and went on an awesome fishing trip with Omar. We couldn't say more nice things about Adelina, she takes great pride in making sure all our her guests are well taken care of, and we appreciated everything she did to make our vacation so wonderful.

So sad to be back in the freezing winter environs of Chicago.We spent 12 days in Puerto with Adelina, the wonderful hostess,and the whole staff at Villa Lili.Still can't say enough about the warm atmosphere and welcome we get here.This was our third February stay since 2012.Feels like a home away from home.We feel so secure here that we don't even bother locking our room door.Adelina,Irena,Sylvia and Francisco bring such a great feeling of joy and happiness to the casa.Seems that they are always laughing and joking around during their workday which is really infectious.It says alot about the type of hospitality on hand here that they offer an honor system full service bar,which we always take full advantage of :)Breakfast is of course the first wonderful stop in days filled with good company courtesy of the other guests and the relaxed atmosphere all around Puerto Escondido.We love hanging out at El Buzo down at Playa Carrazilillo and eating oysters and lazing by the calm waters of this little piece of paradise.Things have slowed down a bit around the Rinconada.Some restaurants have disappeared while others have expanded to bigger and better locations.Still plenty of options to choose from.The main thing though is that Villa Lili has only gotten better with each visit.Adelina's orchids are thriving,the new jacuzzi pool is nice and cool in the afternoon,and we even had the pleasure of meeting Alex this time around.Rick and Sandy from Ontario were a blast to hang out with again this year.Good fun had by all.Looking forward to another visit soon...
