We stayed here for several days and had a great time chilling by the pool or watching the sunset from our balcony or the rooftop balcony. While a little older, the rooms were nice, big and clean, would stay again. We had an issue with our airconditioning at one stage and after they tried to fix it they upgraded us... More

We booked this hotel last minute and were really impressed with what we got. The room was generously sized, very clean, air conditioned (+ a fan), the pools were a great bonus post-beach and the location right across from Zicatela beach made late afternoon cervezas while watching the surfers a daily routine for us. The staff were very friendly and... More

Our room was poolside. No air conditioning necessary. The location couldn't have been more perfectly located to the beach and essential shops. The big surprise was the complimentary breakfast - it was cooked-to-order and very, very tasty. We were so impressed, most of our meals were taken in the hotel. The Mayan chef did a very good job - combine... More

I recommend this place to families, friends or couples. The location is directly on the beach, you can go out your room in your swimsuit and enjoy the beach. Zicatela is a surfer beach so is highly recommended not to swim, but the hotel has 3 amazing pools where you can rest, swim or enjoy the jacuzzi. Rooms are huge,... More

This hotel has everything you need in Puerto Escondido. The hotel rooms were spacious, clean & comfortable. The rooms facing the pool were very quiet at night & it is worth the little bit extra for the air conditioning as it made a huge difference to our comfort. The price for the room was great value for its comfort level... More

“The only drawback is that it is right on the street so if you have an ocean front room you will hear the music from the local restaurants and bars at night. I enjoyed the music so it didn´t bother me that much.”
