Hotel Flor de Maria
Ranked #14 of 47 Hotels in Puerto Escondido
Reviewed October 2, 2010

This is a great hotel close to the beach with a nice roof terrace and pool. The sun sets from the roof terrace are fantastic. We spent Christmas and New Year in this hotel. The couple running the hotel, Paul and Joanne, are very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. Their restaurant is best in town - great food! We enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay by an extra week.

Stayed: December 2009, traveled as a couple

We have visited the Hotel Flor de Maria many times over the last 20 years. For us it is perfect.
Steps from a wonderful beach. Affordable clean room. Roof terrace pool and bar for relaxation and sunset and an excellent restaurant off of the lobby.

In February I had the pleasure of staying at Flor de Maria and it was absolutely perfect for me, a single female travelor!
The hotel is located a two minute walk from Playa Marinero, nestled between the expansive but rough Playa Zicatela and the charming fishing boat filled bay of Puerto Escondido. The water is safe and one is less than a ten minute walk by beach or by road to the main town or to the Zicatela area.
Joanne and Paul were extremely friendly and helpful hosts and I felt at home rigt away. The hotel is not luxurious but it is homey and clean and has a wonderful roof top with a small, refresing pool, shaded tables and hammocks and a bar that serves delicious, potent drinks. There is no music playing so one can read or snooze in peace. The view is spectacular, especially at sunset.
Most guests were retired or semi retired regulars in who made me feel welcome and while I could have as much privacy as I desired, great conversations and invitations to dinner were plentiful. I think that the Flor de Maria attracts interested travelers who really want to taste Mexico rather than touists who want to be isolated from it.
My room was spacious and cooled by an overhead fan that was little noisy at certain speeds. The towels were fine, hot water was plentiful and the chamber maids were very sweet.
The crowning glory of Flor de Maria is the restaurant where Joanne is the head chef. The food was deliscious and the portions were generous- I'd say it was the best restaurant in Puerto Escondido!

The owners are very friendly and helpful. The location is okay, close to Marinaro Beach and good swimming. There is no view of the water from any of the rooms as far as I can tell. No real view of anything of interest. The owners must have something against people sitting down in their Hotel, unless it is in the Restaurant or rooftop bar. No chairs or benches anywhere! Large open air wrap around lobby on each floor and not one place to sit down. Even the roof terrace & bar was short of chairs when it was busy. They had a few hammocks up there, but they were almost always occupied by old fossils who looked like thay might actually never awake from their sleep. Rooms were adequate, nothing fancy. There was a lot of lovely wall paintings that had been there for years. Almost all of the guests are Canadians between 50 & 80 years of age. We felt like we were in a Victoria Country Club. I would look at other options in Puerto Escondido, not too bad, but you could surely find better for the money.

Paul and Joanne were accommodating in every way. Food in the dining room is very good, the hotel is close to the beach, very clean rooms, nice rooftop deck. Not fancy, but a nice economical place to stay.

We had a wonderful, relaxing 3-week stay with hosts Joanne and Paul. Our room was comfortable and cool even in the heat of the day. We loved the walks along the beach in the early morning, mingling with the local fishermen, reading and relaxing in a hammock on the roof during the heat of the day, Spanish lessons in the afternoon, followed by margaritas on the roof at sunset … then dinner served by Pedro in the excellent hotel restaurant. Thank you Paul and Joanne … we definitely plan to visit you again.
