Well located at the end of the zicatela strip, which is nice as is the quieter end of town. Our room was on the top floor with a gas hob and large fridge freezer and some cooking utensils. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We planned on staying for a week, but extended to 3 weeks. Only issue is...

Papaya Surf Hotel was just what we were after for our stay in Puerto Escondido. Right across the road from Zicatela beach, pool, Steps away from shops and bars. We stayed in a 2 double bed room, private bathroom, private outdoor kitchen. Equipped with cooking utensils, cold fridge and freezer, little dining table and outdoor hammock. I really enjoyed our...

With some paint & other maintenance I think this place could be pretty nice. As it is the place has a really worn feel, plumbing not always functional etc. On the plus side Marco the owner is a very cool and friendly guy and very flexible with his rates. It is close to all the Zicatela action so expect some...

We stayed here for 8 days on a trip through Mexico from New Zealand and it was one of the nicest places we stayed in all of Mexico. It was just what we were looking for in terms of a relaxed environment, all the essentials and wonderful staff and housekeepers. We often left our room a bit of a shambles...

I would describe this facility as the perfect balance between hotel and hostel. The rooms have the hostel feel. Sparsely decorated, functional. There is an assumption that you will be spending your days surfing, not sitting in your room and watching TV and ordering room service. After all, the beach begins right across the street, and you can see the...

I moved to this hotel after having a couple of horrible nights in a hotel nearby. The owners are really friendly and let me check in first thing in the morning. The fan operated rooms are spacious, clean, cool and anti mosquito! The hotel is opposite the beach, yet noise proof from the parties in the evening. There is a...

I traveled with my two best friends and stayed for 10 days. If you are traveling only with girls this is a good hostel to stay at, security is really good, there's a nice old guy who stays all night to make sure only guests come in. The rooms are very clean and spacious, the hammock outside the rooms is...

“Looking at Papaya surf from the road the right side of the building gets shade all day and keeps the room nice and cool.”

“Like most any place, you should visually inspect rooms to make sure you are getting what you want. Make sure A/C is running and cold before committing.”
