We were only in Puerto Escondido two nights but the manager of the reception was very friendly and went out of his way to help out. As some of the other travelers have said, it is a great place for the price. The room was nice and the pool was clean. I would have given the hotel a 5-star, but I couldn't because the neighborhood was really loud in the mornings. We were there on a holiday weekend in Mexico, so that may have been part of it, but the neighbors (very loud) music started at 6 am both mornings. There were also a lot of other early noises such as a construction guy working outside my window. It might have all been bad luck and the location of our room on the first floor. There was a good breakfast/crepe place within walking distance and the beach is also within walking distance.

*This has nothing to do with the hotel, but we took a boat trip on Sunday from a guy we met on Zicatela beach. He calls his boat trip Dolphin Watching and his name is Jesus. We think at the last minute he found a more lucrative job by taking a group fishing all day, so for the 7 people who signed up for his trip- we were sent out with "his brother". Jesus said the trip was until 11 am and we returned at 10. He said we would stop on a beach and we didn't. He also said we were guaranteed to see dolphins and we saw one or two from a long distance (but I guess we saw a dolphin!) Jesus offered us ride to the beach, but we drove ourselves, which was a good idea since the other people on our trip got a ride to the boat, but when we returned they did not get a ride home because Jesus was out fishing. We did get a small discount, but I am not sure it made up for all the broken promises.

Thank you for the review! We are so happy that you felt the staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel clean and well priced. I understand that your stay with us was on the loud side and I assure you that your experience is not the norm. Generally the neighborhood we are in is rather sleepy and quiet – so I suspect that it must have to do with the Holiday weekend as you pointed out. We appreciate the honesty in your review and we will keep an ear out for excessive noise in the future and try to curb it as much as possible. We hope to see you again on your next visit to Puerto Escondido.

We stayed at casamar suites in August for a week. It's an amazing spot run by wonderful people and attracts lovely travelers. We had our own private suite which was beautifully decorated and close to the pool. We used the body boards, rented surf boards, found a great surf instructor, did free yoga and met lots of lovely people. Our room was cleaned daily and kept immaculate. Even better, casamar is really well priced for all that goodness. To me, this place is an absolute must! Thanks to Will, the owner, for going out of your way to help us with anything and everything.

It is always a joy to stay at Casamar. Beautiful pool and grounds, clean spacious rooms, friendly staff, great yoga and aerobics classes. Walking distance to La Punta and Zicatella for surfing or dining. The Tuesday "meet and greet" let you get to know the other guests and a few locals. As guests come from all over, Casamar offers a good opportunity to make life long friends from around the world.

I own a home in Puerto and when in town, I prefer to stay at Casamar!!

Room Tip: I prefer room #1, or #2. They are ground floor and have no direct afternoon sun coming in so stays...

I am writing with some feedback about Casamar Suites, a special boutique hotel located in “La Punta” Puerto Escondido, Mexico. At Casamar, one can enjoy peaceful accommodation while being close to downtown Puerto Escondido.

During a recent two month, solo vacation to Puerto Escondido this spring, I stayed at five different hotels. Having returned to Puerto Escondido for a second visit this year, Casamar Suites was easily the place and location that I chose to make home.

The list of reasons is extensive. Here are just a few:

Price:
• Easily the very best mid range hotel in all of Puerto Escondido.
• Seasonal as well as generous discounts to returning guests. (this was a nice surprise!)

Location:
• A peaceful and very secure setting close to the charming beach, shops and restaurants of La Punta – in my opinion, the most beautiful section of Zicatela beach.(more people are discovering this…)
• Convenient and quick transportation to “downtown” Zicatela and Puerto Escondido in three ways: taxi (20-25 pesos each way), collectivo (5 pesos) or a pleasant 20-25 minute beach walk. (I walk this part of the beach once a week for sunset and dinner and taxi back home.)
• Excellent year round surfing, swimming and beach walking at La Punta - with a lifeguard tower.

Atmosphere:
• A mature, family environment with clean, smoke free rooms. (great for solo guests too!)
• Staff and owners who understand what “service” really means.
• English and Spanish are spoken and every effort is made to introduce guests to their new neighbourhood including the arrangement of tours, excursions and services. (Want to surf? Just ask! Spanish lessons, massage, horse back rise? Arranged for you!)
• The manager lives on site, providing additional security and assistance whenever needed.
• All suites have fully equipped kitchens, private bathrooms and patios. Tasteful décor and authentic Mexican Talavera tile adds to the charm and comfort of this wonderful hotel.

Complimentary activities, events and amenities: These are offered / available onsite throughout the week to all Casamar guests including:

• Excellent yoga, aerobic, water aerobics and dance classes.
• A beautiful swimming pool in a courtyard setting: palm trees, abundant flowers, butterflies, hammocks and fountain.
• A weekly evening poolside BBQ.
• An owner/ manager hosted sunset gathering on their ocean lookout terrace.
• Wi-Fi
• Recreation / Family Room with satellite TV, library and ping pong table.
• Maid service – 6 days a week

Other:
• Laundry service available, condiments for cooking, pool toys.
• Boogie boards, fins, snorkels and masks available.

Room Tip: Highest suites offer spectacular ocean views but the beach is only steps away!

Located only a block away from the beach, Casamar truly reflects its name. Only couple of blocks away from La Punta (the most consistent surfing spot on Zicatela) - Casamar is a hidden pearl for surfers. Not only is the hotel clean, safe and has great atmosphere - the kind and knowledgable personel, make a difference!! The manager is very friendly and helpful, and every morning kitchen lady slice fresh fruit and brews you coffee. Rooms are very roomy, come with fully equiped kitchen and our room had a beautiful bathroom.

To understand the location, you should know that Puerto Escondido is spread out in 3 areas: main Zicatela strip, center and La Punta. Casamar is located in La Punta, only a short 30pesos tax ride from main Zicatela strip and center - both are also reachable by perfectly safe colectivos for cost of 5pesos.
