I travel the world a lot and this has been one of the top places we have ever stayed in regardless of price. ALL staff were incredibly professional regardless of what gets requested of them.

Playa Escondida is the perfect destination for those who value natural beauty, excellent service and a down-to-earth approach to leisure. This small venue set in an incredibly isolated but stunning piece of shoreline affords guests privacy, tranquility and luxury while doing without the junkie stuff that more commercial establishments offer. The restaurant is superb. The entire staff is top notch...

Playa Escondida is amazing. When we first arrived, I was actually a little freaked out. It is away from town, and well into the jungle....where it meets the most perfect beach. The only thing that I would say to beware of, is that the website will tell you that it is an "easy, short walk" into Sayulita. No way. The...

We have been coming to Playa Escondida for 5 years. The last couple of years twice a year and can't imagine going any where else. Both my husband and I own our own businesses and are getaways are working vacations... The wifi works and if it is acting up Tony gets IT help. Plus Chef David makes us extra vegetables...

We didn't stay here, but went to dinner at their restaurant. The dining area was just to the left of the pool, which is quite small considering the number of guest rooms; and the bar/kitchen is directly behind the pool. The grounds are beautiful and well landscaped. The drinks were good, the staff was friendly and efficient, the scenery is...

Playa Escondida is a gorgeous, secluded paradise. It is romantic, intimate and a place of nature and serenity. I have never felt more relaxed, peaceful and joyful. The food and service were incredible. The staff are wonderful, kind and genuine. Miguel went above and beyond for us as did all the staff at Playa Escondida. I cannot thank them enough...

My wife and I returned to PE for the fourth time a few weeks ago. We stayed in Pasion, which is a terrific new room with an really nice private balcony overlooking the surf.
