This place is simply amazing. Paradise. Traveled from Puerto Vallarta to Sayulita, staying one night in each location and then stayed two nights in Playa Escondida. We decided to stay one night in Cabaña which is essentially a Palapa with in the middle of the the hill with heavy jungle vegetation. The second night we stayed in Chachalaca which is...

My wife and I attended a wedding in Sayulita and opted to stay outside town at Playa Escondida. We were thrilled with our choice. We stayed in Villa 1 for five awesome nights and really recommend that unit. Often, people say location, location, location. But at Playa Escondida, it's all about their service. From check-in to the bar, spa to...

I'm sure I'm just repeating what others have said about this wonderful place, but it's easily the best warm-weather resort I've ever been to. It's informal, friendly, funky, happy and reasonably priced. The food is excellent, the staff is attentive and fun. You'll learn some Spanish, you'll have a few Pacificos, you'll order chilaquiles con pollo for breakfast three times...

Playa Escondida is by far the most romantic spot we have ever stayed! It is hard to sum up just how extraordinary it is - truly perfection. The grounds are lush, the pool is spectacular, the beach is secluded, the food is incredible, the staff is unbelievably friendly and welcoming. We have no idea how anyone could say anything negative...

I spent five incredible days at Playa Escondido in mid-April! I couldn't have asked for a better vacation and have been raving to all of my friends about it. I love to travel alone (I am a woman) and am always searching for fun, relaxing and "safe" getaways - this is now at the top of my list! The staff...

The rustiic opulence of this hotel is the most unique property I have visited. service from the waiters is top notch and the food is as good or better than any place I have visited in Mexico. The water is rough where there is swimming and some might might find it too challenging. Also it is important to know that...

We had a wonderful room, Il Nido D'Amor - fantastically private, great views. The staff is local and perfect, the location is great. We had 4 relaxing days and nights and would certainly recommend and return. Just a warning to the tech obsessed - this is a place to get away from all that nonsense!

My husband and I stayed at Playa Escondida during the 1st week of April and were absolutely enamored by the resort, its surroundings, and friendly and helpful staff. Sol 1 was spacious and artistically designed with a deck and view over the Pacific Ocean beyond compare. As other reviewers have commented, the noise of the waves is quite spectacular -...

I have waited far too long to write this review. I, like others, am a bit hesitant to do so as it will draw others to this magnificent place. I first traveled to Playa Escondida with my sisters in 2011 and it was love at first sight. We stayed in Casa Rocosa to celebrate our eldest sisters 50th. The staff...
