I have traveled quite a bit over the years and stayed in many places. Nothing compares to Bungalows Lydia and its location. It was absolutely spectacular! The view, the layout of the place, the rooms, the people, the town. I miss this place already! I can't wait to return. They took very good care of me and I was extremely...

I just came back from a week spent at Bungalows Lydia. It is a little hidden paradise on the cliffs of the Pacific Coast in San Pancho Mexico. What a treat for ones birthday. The venue, hospitality and generosity of Lydia does not begin to explain the beauty of it all. If you are looking for R&R with every minute...

We've travelled a lot in Mexico and Central America and just recently spent some time at Bungalows Lydia. One of the most relaxed and beautiful vacations that we've ever experienced! Within minutes after getting settled in the Panorama room, we saw Humpbacks breaching in the Pacific and pelicans flying below us. So many beautiful birds. The combination of staying in...

This is simply one of the most beautiful and relaxing settings that we have ever encountered. Being there for over a week in the middle of November, we were lucky enough to have it mostly to ourselves, and even when "busy" on a holiday weekend, the atmosphere was tranquil and fun. We were fortunate enough to have the Panorama Suite,...

We just drove in to this place by following the signs in San Pancho. It was unreal. The pool and the rooms were perfect. The location peaceful. The hosts (Claudia and Moses) and Lydia and her sister were fantastic hosts. the property is spectacular. The beach a perfect and peaceful retreat. The only suggestion I have to make it better?...

This was our second stay after finding Bungalows Lydia four years ago. Without a doubt this is one of the most wonderful places in the world. It has just the right amount of seclusion, beautiful beaches, views of passing whales and dolphins and to top it all off Lydia and Mayte have added a killer breakfast option to wake up...

We had an excellent time at Bungalows Lydia. The beach is almost entirely to yourself (although the waves make it difficult to get into the water), excellent for sunbathing. The sound of the waves crashing against the cliff is amazing, it's pretty loud, but we loved it and slept with the windows open. I had a great night sleep. It's...

This was our second stay at Bungalows Lydia (the first being in 2011). For this trip we were in the Sunflower Suite - which is a nice location when traveling with kids (closest to the pool). Amazing views, beautiful grounds, clean pool and a very friendly staff. The pool is fantastic but not very big so if the resort is...
