Whilst you can see how beautiful Paraiso Escondido is from the photos on their website, nothing prepares you for the reality of the views, the peace and quiet and the feeling of being somewhere very special. Berny and Glenn are the best hosts who do all they can to make sure their guests have everything they need and more. The food and service are great especially the breakfast which includes the best scrambled eggs you’ll ever eat!! There are also great beaches and restaurants nearby if you want to venture out. I can’t recommend it highly enough, It really is a wonderful place to chill and relax , I can’t wait to go back!

It’s hard to describe just how good this place is! It’s not just the perfectly appointed seating, plants, swimming pool and bar, it’s the views in every direction, the sunrise in the morning and the beautiful positioned yoga studio. Berny and Glen are the best hosts you could meet. Charming, full of positive energy, fascinating chat, and they go above and beyond to meet their guests every need! They were polite to all visitors and professional even when another guest was shall we say, tricky! I could not recommend this place highly enough and I haven’t even started on the food!! I will post pictures as words can’t describe!!

Nothing can prepare you for the magical experience you feel when you arrive here. The stunning views, beautiful accommodation which is so tastefully decorated and the warmest welcome from Berny and Glenn - you really do feel like you’re in paradise. Devine breakfasts, a gorgeous swimming pool, I could go on and on about each and every wonderful part of this place but you have to come yourself to experience it and just relish being here in Berny and Glenns home and this little bit of paradise on earth.

Me and my boyfriend recently stayed in Paraíso Escondido and it was absolutely fantastic! If you’re looking for a peaceful, beautiful place, near the most fantastic beaches, this is a must go! The owners Berny and Glen made us feel very welcome and took good care of us. Nothing was to much to ask and they really made us feel like being home away from home. Also the breakfast was fabulous! Great, fresh products from the area. We fell in love for this place and will definitely come back one day. Berny & Glen, thanks again for making our stay unforgettable. Big hug from us!

Paraiso Escondido was an absolute delight. Berny , Glenn and the team run an exquisite holiday retreat offering a relaxed and enriching escape for visitors. The warm hospitality was genuine and embraced by all. Every detail is thought of, from scented aromas in communal areas to beach towels and baskets for trips to the beach. The food was outstanding and certainly convinced some of our group of the potential of vegetarianism as a choice rather than a loss! Their signature cocktail is now a firm favourite! The ambience is artistic and chilled, enhancing the relaxed atmosphere of home from home. Berny was also so helpful at signposting us to restaurants and beaches, all of which delivered. For those wanting an escape this is a perfect choice. We will definitely be back!

We recently had a really lovely stay at Paraiso Escondido. We chose the hotel because of the pictures of the view and the proximity to lovely beaches. The view is indeed gorgeous but the hotel itself is also beautiful, spotlessly clean and with huge attention to detail on furnishings and decoration. The rooms are large, comfortable and lovely. The pool has a gorgeous view and is very is a very peaceful area. The breakfast was one of the nicest we’ve had in ages (with Berny bringing us a huge cafetière of coffee after we had mentioned how much we drank!). We had dinner at the hotel 3 times. The meals were really tasty (all vegetarian in keeping with the theme of sustainability). However, Berny knows everywhere and everyone in the area and for the other 2 nights recommended and booked us into lovely restaurants. Indeed Berny and Glen are fabulous hosts, happy to help in every way with recommendations for places to visit etc. They can also organise yoga, massages and other activities. The studio spot overlooking the valley was gorgeous. I had a massage with a lady called Margo after which I felt amazing. One day we just chilled by the pretty pool and relaxed. Finally the area is lovely, really stunning clean beaches and cute little towns. We didn’t go walking but I think there was lots of hiking available. All in all a really great stay - easily 5 stars! Thanks Berny and Glen and hope to see you again!

Everything was just perfect. The setting is absolutely amazing, with stunning views across the countryside. Beautiful local beaches only 20mn away. The property is beautifully decorated in a relaxed style, with attention to every little detail. The food is wonderful prepared with home grown and locally sourced produce. The owners Berny and Glenn are wonderful hosts. Paraiso Escondido is just the perfect place to unwind.

The small hotel is wonderfully quietly situated in the coastal hinterland. A perfect place to relax, created by the lovely hosts Bernie and Glenn. Just good to come down and unwind. The vegetarian food comes partly from the garden and is delicious. It was a wonderful few days with lovely conversations.

The two owners, Bernie and Glenn are fantastic people. They know what it takes to facilitate people to relax and enjoy. They are an amazing couple, enormous service minded and beam positive energy. Nothing is too much asked, everything is possible. The stay superceeded our expectations by far although our expectations were already very high before we travelled.

This hotel is simply perfect. Owned and run by a dedicated couple. Every detail is precise and tasteful. Contemporary decor with beautiful eclectic furnishings. Berny and Glenn are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. The food, 100% vegetarian, is original and inspired using local organic ingredients. Location is remote with beautiful views but only 20 minutes from the best beaches and seafood restaurants. Every room is different. Some are in the main house and some in cabins and you should discuss your preferences when you book. Hotel quality is luxury and prices could be twice what they charge and still be good value. Really nothing to improve. A rare find.
