“I'll never go anywhere else in Puerto Escondido!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2010

Casamar is an excellent spot to get away from all of the touristy type things. With clean rooms, hot showers, and wi-fi, I could've spent a lot more time by the pool. The staff was very helpful and spoke wonderful english which made it way easier to get the service we desired.
Another great thing was that it was very secure with code access gates and a manager living on-site. I can't say enough how great it was:) very relaxing..... I'll definitley come back for another stay

We had a great experience at Casamar. We were welcomed by Andy, one of the staff members, who welcomed us and explained the local culture, transportation, restaurants and places to visit. The hotel is very secure and incredibly clean. The grounds were well kept and very picturesque, everyday the friendly staff at Casamar were working hard on keeping the place clean. The room was very nice with a nice kitchenette, coffee pot, mid-size refrigerator, ceiling fan, plenty of electrical outlets, reliable wireless internet and very clean. We stayed in room #12 which over looks the Pacific Ocean and Zicatela beach, our balcony was grand with a nice table, umbrella and deck furniture. There was room cleaning service everyday but Sunday, they did a really nice job as well. Every morning we were greeted by the Casamar staff with some chit chat in between. Overall we had a great experience at Casamar, thanks for everything!

This hotel has been absolutely perfect for us. The pool is lovely! It is very child friendly here (we have no children but if we did we would bring them here). The rooms are so nice and spotless and the staff is really helpful. You can't always buy breakfast here, but we had fun cooking all our own meals. I highly recommend this place. We are sorry that we have to leave it tomorrow!

Casamar is a lovely landscaped island of calm, with clean apartments each with a balcony or porch for relaxing in Puerto's perfect weather. You can taxi or walk a mile into town or a few blocks to a beach restaurant or cook in your apartment. Zicatella Beach is a block away. They have special services are available such as massages, tours and they arranged a wonderful fishing trip for us and even cooked the fish with all the trimmings for us. My favorite thing of all was to sit by the pool and read. Because of it's intimate size, the pool area was never loud or crowded. I can't wait to go back again next year. This was our third trip! Many thanks to our hosts Rosalie and Willits!

First off, the place is gorgeous. I stayed in the smallest room (#8), and it was still a perfectly nice size with a small kitchen and nice bathroom. The grounds are beautiful, the pool sparkling clean, and nice shady palapas next to the pool for reading and hanging out. There were a few things that I wasn't so fond of: It's not a very walkable place in that you pretty much need to take a taxi everywhere (taxis are quite cheap), or at least walk up to the highway and take the collectivos if you want to save a few pesos. And how has no one mentioned the roosters and dogs? I always use earplugs when I travel, and I highly recommend that you have some for this place, as there is no shortage of nightly animal noises in the neighborhood.

My 20 year old daughter and I had never been out of the United States before so we obtained our first passports and headed for Mexico. We stayed at Casamar for the whole trip and enjoyed the sun and the beautiful surroundings. The apartment we stayed in was very accomodating and safe with a lazy atmosphere. We took some day trips and explored Mexico in its traditional state and learned much about the culture and the people. My daughter likes american food and we were able to find pizza and other fare the we both enjoyed-lobster on the beach for me-. Each morning we would check our emails to stay in touch with family back home, maybe read for awhile, swim eat warm crouisants and then head out for a day of sight seeing or just enjoying the country side. I also played some tennis and watched a little tv in the community room. I would highly recommend this place and this resort. Melody

I'll start with the bad: the internet never worked in this place, but there is an internet cafe 2 blocks away.

Apart from this we had beautiful rooms, the swimming pool is small but very pleasant, the garden deliciously refreshing. The staff was unrushed in Mexican style, but very friendly, easygoing, and they worked really well.

Very good laundry service (same day wash and fold for a few USD), great coffee and delicious breakfast.

Thehotel is not in the city center but it is 2 blocks from the beautiful beach, catching a cab is pretty easy and walking to the town along the ocean was a lovely exercise.

No question we will come back!
