Amazing resort. Amazing staff. They really want you to be happy and enjoy your stay. My 40th birthday trip and the most incredible place I have ever stayed. The rooms are so clean and the towels smell so good. Great for girls trip or couples. We felt like we were at our very own resort with a personal butler. Great...

We were looking for a real Mexican experience, on the edge of a jungle looking out at the ocean and listening to the waves crashing against the shoreline. We got exactly what we wanted and more. The rooms all have a magic of there own, the food is unbelievable!!! I can honestly say we did not have one bad meal...

From the moment we arrived, everything about Playa Escondida was perfect. The property is stunning and lovingly maintained. The staff are attentive, and friendly without being intrusive. The food and drinks were delicious, plentiful and very reasonable. The location, in relation to Sayulita town center, is ideal. We had an absolutely fantastic stay. We cant wait to book our return!...

Playa Escondita was built with love, artistry and care. Each room is a delight and kept impeccably clean. The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and charming. Every meal was an experience to remember, with the most incredible view. The pool, hot tub and massages are not to be missed. Even the Yoga teachers were amazing. Thank you!

My husband and I are still recovering from our wonderful experience with Playa Escondida. Everything was seamless and enjoyable. Thank you Cesar for helping us find a short stay in the Love Nest.

A beach oasis. Warm, friendly staff, great food, beautiful pool. Slept with windows wide open and could watch the sun set from our bed. Beach lovely but rocks under the surface make it a bit difficult to swim.

Love this place. My second time here. Staff is amazing. They really go out of their way to make your stay memorable. We stayed six days and ate every meal on premise. The restaurant is incredible -- great variety and delicious food at a very reasonable price.

I can't say enough about how much I've loved our stay here. Hubs and I came for our 10th anniversary. We were warmly greeted from the moment we made the reservation. Upon arrival, Kim gave us a tour of the resort and asked if we wanted to pause our tour for lunch. The grounds are unreal: parrots, warm infinity pool,...

This was our second stay here & it was just as peaceful & relaxing as the first stay. We had stayed in Sayulita the first 7 days of our vacation & on a whim found that they had just enough rooms available for our party of 4, for the last 2 days of our trip. We were pleased.

We had a general idea of what this place was going to be like but it far exceeded any expectations we had! Everything about this place is amazing, the rooms, the food, the drinks, the service, the location, the people, the atmosphere, the beach and the pool ... i mean everything is amazing! So much thought and details has gone...

“We were in Villa 2, a night in the bathroom would be nice and also some sort of light on the patio.”

“Luna Alegre-spectacular view. It felt private. Ocean was loud, we got used to it quickly. Draw back- the bed. Very firm and creaked loudly.”

“Lovers Nest is perfect for anyone wanting privacy, a breathtaking view, and to get away.”

“The love nest has several coatimundi, lurking about all night & they will come in if you leave any food out. The cenzontle slept 4, but is pretty noisy during the night, a pump of some sort ran all night & traffic traveled often. It has a full kitchen 2 bathrooms & a futon on the lower level. It was fine for the one night we stayed in it. We also stayed in the villa 4, close to beach, the wonderful sound of waves lulled us to sleep. The best room we've stayed in was the Luna Penthouse.”
