Playa Playa Escondida is a good - but definitely not great - boutique hotel. The hotel is rit on the beach and many of the rooms are as well. The rooms are super funky (and many are funky & cool) and picking the right one based on your preferences is highly recommended. Not one of them is the same or...

Playa Escondida is a work in progress, a living, evolving art form, inspired by nature and loved by most of our guests. We are far from perfect but we never stop trying. Things break and we fix them. Someone has an idea, we try it. Our staff is not professionally trained but they genuinely care about our guests and are...

My wife and i seek out boutique hotels exclusively and this place is simply amazing! Location? Like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean? CHECK Spa? Like getting good massages or spa treatments? CHECK Decor? Like unique decor reflecting a certain "feel" or "ambience" that fits in with the locale, surroundings and desires of the boutique hotel crowd? CHECK...

Playa Escondida is one of the most relaxing and well ran places I've ever been too. The people that work there couldn't be more sweet and accommodating, and the location is beautiful. The rooms are either located right on the beach with the ocean as your view, or in a jungle setting, if your a bird watcher. The minute you...

We have stayed at Playa Escondida on 4 occasions and will continue returning to this tropical gem for a small break from civilization. The setting is on a very private little beach surrounded by a lush tropical forest just a 20 minute walk from the vibrant yet charming surfing town of Sayulita.. The accomodations range from luxurious oceanfront suites to...

Playa Escondida is the most relaxing place I've ever been too. Once you arrive and sit down your world slows and you breath deeper slower ocean fresh air. This place far exceeded our expectations which were already high given two of our friends recommended it. This is not what you'd expect from mexico - it so much more and so...

We just returned from a week in paradise. This property is wonderfully small, quirky but comfortable with great service. All the staff learn your name, are very friendly and helpful. Whoever hires for this property does a wonderful job choosing people that love what they do. I can't say enough about them. The evening chef does a fabulous job, everything...

My husband and I decided to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary here. We are so happy we did. Everything was amazing!! Everyone who works there truly loves their jobs and it is evident in the type of service you receive. Everyone was more than willing to go out of their way to make sure we were happy and enjoying ourselves....
