I have stayed in 16 different lodgings in Puerto Escondido during the past 14 years andhave finally settled on the Ben-Zaa as my favorite because of consistently good, home cooked food, best Happy Hour in town, large rooms with ocean breeze, clean swimming pool and airy patio where guests gather.. The location on a knoll near Playa Manzanilla makes air conditioning not necessary. Personal service is best I've found in Puerto. Taxis go past this hotel every few minutes and cost less than $2 to any of the beaches, night clubs, etc. anywhere in the area. Ben-Zaa is a great, all-around value for budget-conscious travelers.
