We recently returned from four nights at Playa Escondida. My husband was interested in a beach vacation, but I did not want the large, generic resort feel of bigger hotels. Playa Escondida was truly perfect- the setting feels rustic and quiet, yet you still get...More

If you care about good architecture and design don't stay here. The pics on the website don't do justice to the badly decorated rooms and gas station art. The place feels like it was designed by Fred Flintstone. If you don't care about the atheistic...More

I’m sorry you didn’t fully enjoy your stay. Art is in the eye of the beholder; you are the first in ten years to complain about the decoration and architecture, your prerogative for sure. New Year’s Eve our staff worked hard and late to provide...More

We just returned from an amazing 9-day stay at Playa Escondida. The pictures on the website don't do it justice - it's truly paradise. We enjoyed doing yoga overlooking the ocean each morning with Maya, eating delicious food poolside prepared and served by an excellent...More

You need to understand what PE is all about. This is a quiet, intimate peaceful experience unlike what you may have seen on Bachelor in Paradise. If you want to party, go into town, a $5 cab ride. That is where all the... More
