My Wife and I stayed at this charming B&B for a third time....a short walk from the downtown square, conveniently located for access to shopping, dining, culture and such....
Love the authentic, made from scratch everyday, breakfast enhanced by the breads,fruit,coffee and juice....relaxed atmosphere, no T.V.'s, no hurrying here!
Magda and David are very in tune and knowledgable on local happenings....
Well worth the time to spend a week or two for a splendid holiday, treat yourself!

Yet another 5-star review for Villa Escondida. If enjoy the option of quiet evenings, lazy mornings, and afternoon walks, then come to the Villa. If you like to learn about local culture and food, and to explore other parts of the island, then come here for the expert advice. Come here to share the home-made breakfasts with the other guests, bound to be as interesting as you and soon to be friends. I went diving most mornings, and Magda accommodated the schedule for breakfast accordingly. My wife is gluten-sensitive, and Magda could likewise prepare appropriate breakfasts for her (fortunately, traditional Mexican fare is mostly corn-based anyway).
I don't think you could find a location that was both more convenient and quiet. The dive shops next door were just fine and easy to work with. The restaurant across the street (La Choza) is one of the best on the island, and all of the others are but a few minutes walk away anyway. Even when the main square fills up with cruise-shippers, you are only a few minutes walk away from quiet.
As a post-script, we were bumped on our flight home, and the airlines put us up for a night in a local all-inclusive hotel, just north of town. If they choose, guests there can remain completely isolated from the local community and culture, which is perhaps relaxing for some and I don't mean to judge. Better to travel than not, even when it is artificially constrained by a hotel perimeter. But it's not for us. It just confirmed how right Villa Escondida was for us. We travel to learn, make friends, and build bridges.

MY husband and I have stayed at Villa Escondida several times. It is such a calm ,relaxing home away from home.We feel very blessed to have found such wonderful place to stay, along with peace and tranquility and WONDERFUL CARING hosts . Our last visit my husband and I both became ill with the flu...and it was so touching to have hosts who were so caring and concerned .Dave and Magda were so very caring offering to make toast and offering anything they could do to make sure we were ok. They are a class act. Thanks again for another lovely stay at Villa Escondida.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Villa Escondida while in Mexico last Summer and it was perfect. Magda and Dave really know how to take great care of their guests: from delicious breakfasts (think fresh fruits and delicious Mexican specialties), to restaurant and activity suggestions, good discussions (Dave is Canadian and it was interesting to hear is perspectives), they helped us in booking diving trips and even took us out for great Margaritas in the town center!

We had a really good time and definitely would recommend this B&B, without any reserves! Did I mention the great pool?

There's not much to say that hasn't already been said about this place and the exceptional hospitality of David and Magda. The rooms? Beautifully appointed, comfortable, and squeaky clean. Magda's breakfasts? Delicious, satisfying, and healthy. A sampling of what we had to eat: Chilaquiles, motulenos, chorizo and eggs, pork sopes, pumpkin blossom omelets, banana pancakes, and always fresh fruit to start--David even squeezed fresh OJ for us every morning. The courtyard and common areas? A clean pool, a beautiful lush garden (banana trees, hibiscus, orange trees, and more), shaded hammocks, and outdoor tables on which to enjoy Magda's breakfasts. The location? 5 minutes or less walk to the ferry, the pick up piers for diving, the main square, and all the numerous shops and restaurants along the way.

For the divers, if you let Magda or David know that you're diving in the morning, then they will have coffee and breakfast ready for you early if you want. We had to be at the pier by 7:30 on most days during our stay and still managed to eat a full breakfast every day. We were usually eating a little bit before 7 and were out the door at 7:25, which was plenty of time to walk down to the pier.

This was our third trip to Cozumel, our first staying at David and Magda's. We'll be staying at their b&b for all our return trips.
