Not cheap for sure and not easy to find (escondida = hidden) but all worth it. Stayed first two nights with another couple in Senzontle, one of their two-level fully equipped hilltop cabins (with our own designated golf cart, to wit, to help us climb!), then two nights in their gorgeous beachfront Ixchell suite, even better. Surf to lull you...

Our family (2 adults & 2 kids ages 11 & 12) spent 7 nights at Playa Escondida in mid-February. While we have been to Mexico many times, this was our first visit to the Sayulita area as it was recommended by many family and friends. The reviews are fairly accurate. If you are looking for top notch service with many...

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 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...
