Reviewed September 23, 2011

It was truly a very enjoyable stay. Angie and Manfred are incredible host! We stayed in the suite in the third floor. Quiet, peaceful, and tranquil. Wifi access so you can take your laptop if you need to work. Very nice artwork in the rooms by regional artist.
Do make sure you eat breakfast in the hotel since it is very good Organic coffee from a nearby coffee farm, homemade teas made by Angie (my friend and I had some ailments and Angie knew what tea to make for each of us), delicious sunny side up eggs/chillaquiles made by Luz, homemade bread from a local source, honey and agave locally grown in the region. The beach called Carrilazillo is 5 minutes walking distance and another one is 10 minutes away. It takes only five minutes in cab to go to the other beaches and the downtown area. The dinner options next to the hotel are also wonderful choices.

We came from New York, really hoping to find a relaxing place to spend time with each other. There are several nice places in PE, but we were very happy at Villa Mozart. The praise is all true. Manfred and Angie are so kind, their prices reasonable, and they've built their place with a real sense of beauty and peacefulness. The garden is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, created by Angie with a stunning collection of plants and artifacts, and you can have breakfast there and hang at your leisure. Also, the breakfasts there, cooked by Lucy and Angie, are handmade and were the best meals we've had by far in PE. (Try Lucy's sopes, people!) Midweek I got a small infection from a cut, and Manfred drove me to a local clinic, translated and stayed with me while I was treated, just out of kindness and concern. The penthouse is brand new, spacious and beautiful, the art gorgeous and well-selected. Otherwise, it's homey, not fancy, and a reasonable 5 min walk to the beach -- just beware of the stairs to the beach if you are not healthy. There are 200 of them. But Carizalillo is the nicest beach of them all, just beautiful.

Room Tip: Penthouse with outdoor kitchen and two bedrooms and two patios is fantastic.

We based ourselves here for a mini trip around the area & Manfred & Angie couldn't have been more helpful.

Its a bit outside the main Puerto Escondido town, but only a 20cent taxi ride into town (taxis all the time, really safe). The hotel only has about 6 or 8 rooms I think, so really nice & small, not corporate, more family run.

The gardens are beautiful & well kept by Manfred. The beach at Carazallio is only a 5 min walk away, so really convenient. With a sprinkling of restaurants just up from the hotel itself - but i'd encourage you to have breakfast at the hotel - as it is amazing! Even though there is a Cafe Cito just 3 mns walk up the road, that is an incredible , bustling place to go for brekkie too.

There's a great coffee place (try their handmade choccies too) plus a surf hire/school shop & a few local 'corner' stores.

Great location & cheaper than staying in Puerto, would defiantly stay there again, in a hearbeat!

We booked a ten-day stay over New Year's in one of the apartments here based solely on Tripadvisor reviews. It didn't work out very well for us.

We were suprised to find that the villa is NOT so close to the beach. It looks close on the map but then there is a very long steep staircase to get down to the water. There is no sea view from the villa (maybe a sliver of distant blue between the palms). There are few nearby amentities and few restaurants. To get to the main beaches shopping and eating areas, you have to take a cab (cheap, but inconvenient).

When we visited, the property next door was under construction and you could not get to the back garden without walking to the end of the block and around. The indoor hallway seemed very dark and dingy. Another suprise - no daily maid service. The apartment itself was ok, a good size, with fridge, stove, water, bed linens and one towel per person provided (bring your own soap and shampoo). Perhaps more suitable to a longer-term seasonal rental, and would be good value at off-season rates. At high-season rates, it did not measure up. We moved after two nights.

It is a fabulous Hotel in excellent location but quiet and very close to the Carrizalillo beach. The penthouse is awesome. Cost benefit ratio is overhelming. Besides you can eat near by at THE CAFECITO and the mini market at just one block away. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

We came by car fom Mexico City, Ixtapa, Acapulco and the roads are very good and safe. There is no problem in this part of Mexico at all. Best beaches nearby are; Zicatela, Mazunte and Agustinillo. Best Restaurant by far is GUADUAS at the end of Zicatela Beach, Gourmet Mex Thai.

I stayed in the bungalow and in one of the regular rooms and both were lovely. The beds are fantastic and very comfortable. I really liked the stone bathrooms and the elegant design details throughout. If this hotel was in a lot of other places it would cost a lot more to stay.

But.. my favorite part was the early mornings sharing coffee with Manfred and Angie. They are nice people and indulged my excitement and enthusiasm for Puerto. I plan to stay there again and have no hesitation to recommend the hotel to others.

I've never felt compelled to write a review on any product, service or experience, but this place is something else; it was fantastic. We selected Macondo y Mozart based largely on tripadvisor reviews and wondered if it would live up to expectations. We weren't disappointed. Angelica and Manfred truly are genuine in their hospitality and the atmosphere that they've created is just what we were after. Thoroughly recommended!
