“Exceptional!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

We and two other couples rented the Villa for eight days over New Years. What a great place! The minute you walk into the courtyard you know you've picked the right place. The view, the beach, the pool deck, the family restaurants in the surrounding village; everything was just right. We didn't even mind the rooster crowing in the morning. The rooms were great; especially the master suite. Architectually the Villa was one of the best properties we have ever stayed in and we've rented quite a few Villas on the many trips we've taken.

The Huatulco area itself was also great. The town centers of La Crucecita and Santa Cruz are great little areas where you can eat and shop. We rented a car and got out quite a bit and played golf a few times. Nice course also and very reasonable.

But best of all was Isabella and the staff at the Villa. She really made the trip 5 stars and made us feel "at home". From breakfast every morning to cooking us lunch and dinners, and waiting on us at poolside, she and the staff were fantastic. And she had great recommendations for eating out. She even (somehow) was able to arrange a candlelight dinner on the beach at one of the major all inclusive resorts.

We will be back . . . . . . .

We just left the villa and our stay there spoiled us for any other site. We had the entire villa for the 8 days around Christmas . All the reviews are accurate in that the home, furnishings, views, pool, and attention to detail are superb. Isabel stood out as a wunderkind, whether advising us on restaurants, making us an amazing breakfast daily or creating amazing meals from the fresh shrimp we bought on the street. We have been renting villas as a family for a few years, this villa is the only one that exceeded expectations.

The moment you step behind the gates, your jaw will drop at the courtyard, the ocean breeze, the stepping stone laid across a walkway of water. The master suite is perhaps the finest room I've ever stayed in. Beach views from every window. From the open shower, you look over the rear deck with its sunken pool onto the rocks and sand of the cove. Spectacular. And the staff is terrific. High, high recommend. -GH

Room Tip: All rooms are terrific, but the master suite is in a league of its own.

We had a lovely stay at the Villa last month. Isobel and the team looked after us perfectly. The villa itself is stunning. We were the only guests so were very kindly upgraded to the master suite. What an amazing room, falling asleep with the waves crashing was just perfect. La Bocana itself is a nice little village, it was very quiet when we visited but I think this was just time of year. You can rent surfboards from Adam next to the villa and he will also provide great advice on where to go. Isobel will tell you where to eat and visit - a perfect host! Can't wait to return. Lisa and Jarrod.

Very much enjoyed staying here for the evening. It is right on the beach and next to a nature preserve. If you are a surfer or want to learn how to surf, this is a great place to get way from the crowds, rent a board and chill in the cool water during a hot day. You can stay here without a car, kick back and re-energize if you are feeling bulldogish or rent a car and visit near by towns for some really good food. If you want to spend a pleasant day in the country side, you can visit the local abundance of waterfalls and know that you have a secure place to come back to in the evening. And a nearby restaurant smokes its own meats and brews its own beer and Mezcal. If you are a foodie, then you must experience this place for yourself, but watch yourself, the Mezcal goes down easy. If I could afford it, I would rent the whole place for a week, take my friends and get lost in the beauty of Villa Escondida.

Room Tip: The master bedroom has the best view!

My wife and I rented the whole villa for our entire family. 2/27 to 3/6 2011. Eight adults and 4 grand children. We had the most amazing week of vacation that we ever had. We have been doing this "family trip", in many places, for 10 yeras now and all agreed this was the best location and trip ever. The accomodations are wonderful, the meals delicious and the staff engaging and enjoyable. To be able to watch an incredable sunrise (don't ask me how that's possible on the west coast, still trying to figure that out) and then surf , all before breakfast by simply walking 20 yards from our front door, was a beautiful way to start the day! Also, the people of Huatulco are unbelievably friendly and it's just an overall wonderful place to go. I'd highly recommend this to anyone.
