I have been travelling the world for the last year and have never encountered such a horrible experience. Myself and my boyfriend booked to stay here for four nights, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to change our booking to only one night on the day that we arrived at Villa Escondida. The young girl working the front is... More

Went here with my girl for 4 nights to stay in the 2-bedroom-suite upstairs. + great view at the ocean + clean rooms + good prize + idyllic location! + two hammocks - noisy sounds day and night by dogs and rosters, hard to find sleep. - a little uncomfortable bed (no big deal) - the host could not speak...

I have rented a bungalow for a month. It immediately felt like coming home. The bungalow was very cozy and is located in a beautiful garden, where you can see the hummingbirds. I came for the peace and I really found it here. Giuliana and Turie are both sympathetic.They left you alone, but if you needed them, they were there.... More

The rooms are big, very nice and clean. Location is also good: actually not to far from town and only less than 5 minutes to beach. You get more than you would expect by the price. BUT big dissapointment by arriving: many (barking and scary!) dogs in the property and the place, and especially the owner, looks unhygienic. The rooms... More

I had the chance to spend 4 nights at villa Escondida in the amazing spot of playa del amor en Zipolite... Which it's worth the whole trip from Europe. The rooms are great, the villa is built with the perfect wild-tropical style and the people are very helpful and friendly. There's the possibility to eat nice meals and drinks... Giuliana... More

I stayed here for 8 nights and was the only guest for most of the week. The manager was very friendly and helpful. He even removed a gigantic grass hopper from my room! My room was spotless and clean and very spacious. I could hang laundry to dry. My room had a fan which was much needed! You can hear... More

We were placed here by the management at La Loma Linda property which was hosting a yoga retreat. La Loma Linda was filled, so they have a cooperative agreement with the VE owner for accommodations. This is an older property but is basically well-kept, clean, and tidy. The other reviews about the roosters, barking dogs, and crying babies are accurate.... More

I don't recommend anybody to stay at Villa Escondida. It's isolated and you can easily get assault at night . To get to the Villa Escondida, you have to walk a rutted dirt track and on Sundays there are drunk Mexicans men lying on the floor. Few weeks ago there was a robbery too, So I decided this place wasn't... More
