This was our first stay in PE and Villa Lili made it so special. Inviting, comfortable, clean, hospitable are just a few words to describe this gem. A family owned and operated boutique hotel that goes out of its way to accommodate and make your stay memorable. Comfortable beds, clean, well appointed rooms. A very delicious and nutritious breakfast that starts your day; no need to eat till supper. Great pools to cool down in. Rooms with views on the upper levels, even sunset. If you want information on the area, things to do or medical advise, Adalaina will help you and make arraignments where she can. We fell in love with our PE family at Villa Lili and will definitely return.
My husband and I have stayed at Villa Lilli three times, the most recent being over Christmas, 2019. We keep going back because it really is an amazing place. All of the rooms are unique and comfortable, and every year there are improvements and upgrades. This year we stayed in the top floor room with a fantastic view of the ocean. Breakfast of local Oaxacan specialties is provided every morning, cooked and served in the outdoor kitchen. Villa Lil is in a perfect spot right off the Riconada - it's only a 5 minute walk to many great restaurants, as well as the convenience store, laundry service, and other shops (including an ice cream shop). I can't recommend it highly enough.
This villa is the definition of hospitality. When we arrived at around 10 am we were immediately greeted by the owner’s father and then offered breakfast. Breakfast choices included the dish of the day and/or an omelette, fresh fruit, yogurt, and watermelon or other fresh fruit juice. But they were very willing to make us anything they could (e.g. pancakes). The room was spacious and although it did not have AC, there was a big fan, which kept us cool enough despite the very hot weather. The room also did not have shades on the windows, so we were awakened the first morning by the sun. However, as soon as we mentioned this, they were quick to fix it, amazingly hanging a curtain the same day. The villa also has a very nice pool (narrow but long), which is kept clean and clear. The villa is only a 10 min walk to playa carrizalillo, which is small but beautiful and has several beach front establishments from which to rent chairs and have some food and drinks as well as surf school.** The road to the beach has great restaurants, bakeries, a convenience store, a hardware store, laundromat and a small jewelry boutique. The villa provided beach towels and has a water cooler to fill up bottles as well as an honor bar with local beers and soft drinks, all very reasonably priced. Thank you Rosie, Magda, Don Luis and the rest of the wonderful people at Villa Lilli for the warm welcome and hospitality. **Note that access to the closest beach requires going down (and later climbing up) a lot of stairs which may be a problem for people less able but there are other beaches in the area or a short and inexpensive taxi ride away. …
In no time will you feel you are part of the family! Adelina and her staff are so kind and thoughtful, and we connected easily on so many levels. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast is absolutely delicious and prepared as you sit down. Adelina’s recommendations for activities were spot on and she is overall a wealth of information for anything going on in the town. When my young daughter fell and scraped her knee, staff quickly attended with a piece of aloe plant to be wrapped around the wound. I am grateful for the many interesting conversations with Adelina and her family, and can only highly recommend this place. Come. Enjoy. Make lifelong memories and friendships.
I dont even know where to start. It’s a home away from home. Perfect place for a family vacation. The staff are over the top kind. Adelina so helpful and knowledgeable. From booking boat trips to beach suggestions to helping me find a traditional cake for my daughters birthday and stringing up a piniata. Breakfast each morning is gourmet. So much selection. Fresh fruit, traditional meals and pancakes for the kids. Rosie has my tea ready each morning. Flor was so kind with the kids. And Moritz brings joy and laughter to each day. We will be back. This is a little gem we are so glad we found. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Everything easily walkable. Come. Book. You won’t regret it.
