We loved everything about this place! The quaint rooms (we stayed in Sol 3), the beach, the restaurant, beautiful sunsets, hammocks, the pool....
Playa Escondida is the place for those who *really* want to get away from it all. Yes, they have internet but please, don't come if all you want to do is work online at the bar. The beach is perfect for relaxing and getting some sun, the pool is great to swim in and the spa offers soothing massages. The restaurant selections are fabulous - every meal was prepared beautifully and was delicious. There was some kind of food available all day and Jorge and Sergio work their magic with drinks at the bar. The staff works hard to make sure your stay is perfect but it is Mexico - things may not always run like other places but to me, that's what makes it so special.
Sayulita is a decent walk (30 minutes) but you can take a taxi if you want. Typical Mexican surf town. We would rather stay in our little paradise but it is there if you want a change of scenery or need more sunglasses (which we did).
So, if you like sand in your toes 24/7, good people, great food, and the sound of waves against rocks lulling you into slumber, Playa Escondida is for you. If you are looking for a party atmosphere, please go somewhere else...like Puerto Vallarta, and leave Playa Escondida to those who can truly appreciate it.
