We had five days to relax and unwind from a crazy first half of 2012, and Playa Escondida was just the right place. The staff couldn't have been more friendly, the setting serene and tucked into the jungle/beach hillside. You never felt like there were more than 8-10 people there with you, but the place actually has 25 rooms/suites. The food was also excellent and we ate all but one meal there and loved it! We had a romantic dinner on the beach - highly recommended - and spent most of our time shuttling from ocean to pool to hot tub and back again. We also had an onsite massage at their spa and it was one of the best ever. If you love natural settings, don't mind not having air conditioning, but lots of fans, and some of the best music being played in the background (Nina Simone, the Band, Bob Dylan, Jazz, etc.) then this is the place for you. No kids under 17 allowed except during the months of December and July. So get a sitter...
