“Wonderful place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We are traveling on a budget and mostly staying at hostels, but when we arrived at our hostel in puerto escondido we found it unbearable and searched for something nicer. I'm so happy we found Hotel Paraiso Escondido! For only about $65 US per night my boyfriend and I got an enormous corner room on the 3rd floor with a comfy king size bed, a large luxurious bathroom and a gorgeous terrace with views of the lovely pool and the pacific! It also had AC which was a huge bonus since this is July and it's impossibly humid. The staff was super friendly and accommodating to us giving us a map, directions, and great recommendations including their suggestion of the night tour to lagoon de manialtelpec where we swam in a bioluminescent lagoon- a truly magical experience that our lonely planet book didn't even mention! They also went above and beyond by allowing us an extra late check out at 4pm (for just a small fee), storing our luggage and letting us continue to stay and hang out on the hotel grounds all afternoon since our overnight bus to San Cristobal didn't leave until 8:30 pm This really helped us since we didn't want to walk around and get sweaty before our trip and the bus station is right around the corner from the hotel. Really generous and lovely people. We really enjoyed spending time lounging near the pool, swimming and the restaurant there has a great breakfast menu. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

The hotel itself is a beautiful building with a lot of character. The communal areas are very pretty, with a lovely pool area and restaurant serving tasty Mexican food. We treated ourselves and upgraded to the Master Suite and it was worth every penny. The bedroom is large, the beds comfortable, the bathroom clean, spacious and lit through the stained glass of a beautiful dome. But the absolute highlight is the fantastic terrace with views of the Pacific and its own splash pool. The only negative thing I would say about the room, and the property itself, is that there are no sun loungers on the terrace which makes it a little tricky to lie back and enjoy the sunshine.

Our extended family of 6 stayed in the "villa" which is slightly separate from the main hotel but on the grounds and very near the pool still. It was the perfect solution for our group, as we like to make our own coffee and breakfasts when we are travelling, when possible. Beautiful outdoor covered patio with large couches and a view of the bay, which was a surprise. excellent airconditioning, excellent cleaning services daily, super friendly desk staff who gave great restaurant suggestions. We really preferred this part of town which is much more humble and family friendly than Zicatela, and felt like part of the regular town life when walking to and fro the beach which is only 5+ mintues walking from the hotel. I highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back!!

We stayed here many moons ago & I'm so pleased it's still going. Sitting on the terrace next to the pool having breakfast, whilst having humming birds come along a next to you........ what more can I say. If you get a chance to stay here... DO!! It's near town & the beach but so quiet & peaceful. The staff were fantastic & the views even better.

I was just at the Paraiso Escondido and I can honestly it is one of the most charming hotels I've ever stayed in. The hotel looks like a cross between a moorish castle and a Spanish colonial mansion. The architectural and artistic touches are very beautiful. I stayed at the Paraiso 12 years ago and the ambiance was as magical then as it is today. When the moon comes up over the bay and you stand on your balcony and marvel, you know you're staying at the right spot. Sergio, the manager, and his assistant Daniella, made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to advise and to help; and the rest of the staff was helpful and friendly too.
When I return to PE, and I know I will, I'll try first to stay at the Paraiso. And did I mention that the price was right?

Room Tip: go for the suites on the 3rd floor.

In the middle of the town - a quiet and beautiful place - with at wonderfull oceanview, you will find this hidden paradise. We have been visiting Puerto Escondido and this hotel since 2007 - and still find it very charming with an extremely friendly staff. This year we stayed for nine days - and enjoyed all of them. Ufortunately the restaurant was not open. The architecture is very special: Mexico meets 1001 Night. The rooms are not luxurious but yours eyes will feast on all the little original details. We hope to se you again next year.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean view.

This place is something really special that made our stay in Puerto Escondido into something extra. Sergio, the manager, is doing a great job of running this place together with his team. They are pleasant, helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed it for nine days - the pool, the architecture, the ambiance, the staff etc. We would come back to Puerto Escondido just for the pleasure of staying here again.
