We booked this hotel last minute and were really impressed with what we got. The room was generously sized, very clean, air conditioned (+ a fan), the pools were a great bonus post-beach and the location right across from Zicatela beach made late afternoon cervezas while watching the surfers a daily routine for us. The staff were very friendly and... More

Our room was poolside. No air conditioning necessary. The location couldn't have been more perfectly located to the beach and essential shops. The big surprise was the complimentary breakfast - it was cooked-to-order and very, very tasty. We were so impressed, most of our meals were taken in the hotel. The Mayan chef did a very good job - combine... More

Bungalows Zicatela in Puerto Escondido is owned by my favourite hoteliers in Zipolite at Hotel Playa Zipolite. A friend has been staying there for several weeks and we travelled to PE to escort him back to Zipolite for a few days. Bungalows Zicatela is a very impressive hotel complex offering a variety of accommodations from rooms to self-contained suites. Our... More

I recommend this place to families, friends or couples. The location is directly on the beach, you can go out your room in your swimsuit and enjoy the beach. Zicatela is a surfer beach so is highly recommended not to swim, but the hotel has 3 amazing pools where you can rest, swim or enjoy the jacuzzi. Rooms are huge,... More

We had no idea we were gonna find a place like this and right on the beach! :) The hotel got everything you need but we took a room with double fan, hot water, tv on the bottom floor towards the pool.

This hotel has everything you need in Puerto Escondido. The hotel rooms were spacious, clean & comfortable. The rooms facing the pool were very quiet at night & it is worth the little bit extra for the air conditioning as it made a huge difference to our comfort. The price for the room was great value for its comfort level... More

If you'd like to have a relaxed stay and good sleep at night, this is definitely not the right place to stay! We already heard from others that they do often have construction noise (sawing noise) and loud music by the pool, but after looking at all their reviews, we thought me might give them a try as the location...

If your travel destination is Puerto Escondido, then you're probably a Surfer or a bodyboarder. If That's your case, find herein my pro and cons: Pro - Location.
