Just back from our 6th visit to Diego's jungle/beach hideaway. From the service of his entire staff to the total property environment and amenities, Playa Escondida is our favorite destination which we plan to visit many more times.

The Guest House was wonderfully private and peaceful*, the food was tasty and reasonably priced, the jungle and beach were beautiful. We absolutely loved our April vacation, and will be back next year! The only two complaints we had were: 1) Some grounds maintenance for a couple days, the sound/smell of chainsaws did get a bit annoying 2) Wifi at...

Playa Escondida is a little slice of heaven. Open air rooms, out door showers (still very private) comfortable bed, (sleep to the sound of the waves lapping the shore) restaurant with an amazing menu, and perhaps the nicest people taking care of your every need. Warning - the bartenders know how to make a drink!

This was our second stay at PE and it was once again outstanding. The service from the staff was excellent, especially Ixchel at reception and Juan,Jose and Jesus at the bar. Loved when Juan kept the beach bar open at night. This the perfect place to come for a quiet escape in paradise. Home one night and I already miss...

First time in Mexico and we couldn’t have asked for a better home away from home! From start to finish we were made to feel welcome, lost ourselves in a tropical paradise and will certainly be back… A big thank you to all the staff but a major shout out to Juan and Ixchel!

We loved our stay at this resort. A slice of paradise. We had a beautiful ocean view Room, wonderful food and extremely friendly service. We felt very relaxed and pampered. We will be back same time next year!

Actually, other than being robbed it was a good time - and a beautiful spot. Unfortunately being robbed from our room safe the first night there (hadn't been in Mexico 12 hours) ruined the rest of the experience. We'll never return, nor will we return to Mexico. As an aside, I did let the Manager know - absolutely nothing done....

Hello Anne Thank you very much for taking your time for sharing your thoughts and for your kind comments about our staff.

Can't say enough about how great this place is! Setting is gorgeous, rooms simple but fabulous, staff the absolute best and the food is awesome. The ocean beach is a little rocky and surf big enough when I was there that you need to be a good swimmer to play in the waves but the pool is beautiful. I will...

While the location is just remote enough to not be able to walk into town and tides are really to dangerous for a ocean dip we loved everything about this place, staff is a ten in our books, they were young and enthusiastic and really made our holiday special
