Staff, food, beach, room - everything is wonderful. I 100% plan on returning frequently. Really the only bummer is they charge 3% additional to use AMEX. Somehow this policy was implemented in between paying my deposit and checking out a few weeks later. Other than that they were very accommodating and flexible when I needed to change rooms and even... More

Love the views, the room, clean and beautiful. If you want real vacations where you can relax, sleep, enjoy your time and spend time with your couple, this is the place. The beach area, the bar, the food at the restaurant are also Greta. You can rent a golf car at the hotel and go to Sayulita town to have... More

First, Playa Escondida is a really beautiful place. The resort is low-key and the staff is first-rate. However, when we arrived at the resort we were informed that the Jacuzzi was not working in the room we had reserved (Sol 3). It was disappointing as I had watched many of the website videos and specifically wanted that room, but they... More

I’m really sorry you didn’t have the best experience possible. Our oceanfront environment is very hard on equipment and sometimes parts take several days to arrive from the U.S. when we have breakdowns. Thanks for your feedback on the path lights. We now have beautiful lighting along the path. Once in a while we have some mosquitos which breed before... More

Diego, the owner of Playa Escondida has found the magic key to getting guests to return again and again - it's his ability to maintain a great staff! Through that staff he is able to provide a very consistent and predictably great experience for his guests. In our visits, the latest this May for a week, I never heard the... More

So romantic, we made a baby here. Sol 3. Checked in as Mrs. and Mrs. Fletch Underhill, which went unnoticed- and got to seriously relax for a solid weekend. Food and drinks, excellent. morning Yoga, fabulous. Poolside service and tranquil chill environment, Unbeatable. Were there for the crab migration which was fantastic to witness firsthand. Unique from start to finish.

Given that four weeks have passed without anyone offering their thoughts on this fine resort, I thought now might be a good time. My last visit was the third week of February. We usually make our Spring trip later, but it turns out the weather was much better in Feb than March or even early April. My wife and I... More

I had the opportunity to go on a yoga retreat a couple years ago with my daughter and friends to Playa. I was overwhelmed with the views of the ocean--right on the beach--and the cleanliness of the property. It was my first trip to Mexico and I absolutely loved the decor and lush landscaping this property had. Each morning we... More
