    Staying with David and Magda was the best decision we made on this trip!
    The B&B was exactly what we were looking for: it was clean, quiet, and relaxing.
    Magda's homemade breakfasts were such a treat, with warm baked goods, fresh fruit, yogurt with granola, and homemade breakfast entrees to start our mornings.
    We came to Cozumel with no concrete plans and we are glad we did, as what David and Magda helped us arrange was incredible. We wanted to dive, and so they had a local scuba dive company owner come to the B&B to meet us and arrange our dive trips. Instead of having to go to a resort or shop to get massages, Magda arranged for a personal masseuse to come to the B&B and we got relaxation massages beside the pool. Between their restaurant advice, hand-written book of local recommendations, and great island connections, it felt like we had personal trip planners who took the guess work out of our decisions.
    We will definitely be staying here again, we cannot say enough great things about this gem.

    My wife Shirley and I spent a week at Magda and David's exquisite B&B, Villa Escondida, the first week in July, 2013. From the moment Magda met us at the street door until we sadly said goodbye a week later, everything was really perfect. We could not have asked for better hosts. The room was charming, decorated tastefully with plenty of storage for our things. We are divers and David has installed a rack to hang gear outside, and hoses are provided for rinsing. The pool is wonderful, comfortable lounge chairs and towels provided. The breakfasts were just amazing! Magda is a wonderful cook and the presentation was perfect, too. They were full of advice and tips for things to do and places to eat. We had a wonderful late lunch with Magda and David at a nearby restaurant and David took us to get the best hamburger in town one evening. Awesome tacos al pastor are just out the back gate of the property. We were two blocks from our dive shop, two blocks another direction to the pier, and two blocks from the main town square. Perfect facility, perfect food, perfect location and the perfect hosts. Yes, we have already booked another stay!

    Room Tip: We prefered the downstairs rooms, but the upstairs rooms have a view and ocean breezes.

    If you want a laid back time, but close enough to the main square, this is the place to go. Quiet yet, close enough to all the activities. Thank you David and Magda for allowing us to enjoy your home, it was truly an amazing time.

    This was our 4th or 5th visit to Villa Escondida and we are counting the days until we can return! Magda and David are the perfect hosts and we feel like they are our friends now. The location is perfect for walking into town where we've discovered some wonderful restaurants. They are also a great resource for information on enjoying the area. Magda's breakfasts are delicious and unusual. I always look forward to her descriptions of what is being served and the ingredients she has used. The B&B is beautiful with a lovely pool for relaxing and cooling off. The lounge area is a nice place to gather in the evening and chat with other guests. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and a bargain! We would highly recommend Villa Escondida B&B. Hope to see you soon, Magda and David!!

    My Husband and I had a Cozumel condo reservation 4 years ago that covered only 7 nights of a 10 day trip and we just needed a place to hold us over. We "found" Villa Escondida here on Tripadvisor and thought we would just give it a try. Since that time however, we have moved from a "Just a place to stay" to a "Home away from Home". In previous reviews, which continue to apply, I have posted about the four Super Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms. I have also give 5 stars to Magda's and David's hospitality as well as the unique breakfasts that are served every morning. I can not forget to mention the beautiful and well kept plants and foliage as well as the sparkling pool. My review would not be complete as well if I did not mention Cutie Pie, the resident pup, who is a true ambassador of sweetness.

    Also, not to overlook is how so very convenient the location for restaurants, sights and services. Just walk out the front door and within minuets you are anywhere you need to be. If there is a need for a taxi all one has to do is walk out to the street, perhaps walk to a corner and find one passing by or ask Magda or David to call for one which will arrive to the front door in no time at all. TIP: For those who arrive to Villa Escondida from the airport via the shuttle, just tell the ticket rep you need transportation to Villa Escondida, located across from La Choza Restaurant.

    As avid divers, we also appreciate our stay at Villa Escondida. Our dive op, Blue XT SEA, has a pick up point at the town pier which is only a 5 minuet very easy walk. Upon our return to Villa Escondida, David is ready with a rinse hose for our wetsuits. There are racks available to hang everything out to dry. However, we were informed that David has plans to add a rinse tank and expanded areas to dry equipment in the near future. This plan does not surprise us as Magda and David are always looking to how they can make their guests happy.

    After diving, it is so wonderful to sit outside, on the Palapa covered breezeways or on the chaise lounges and hammocks. There is also a community room with a shared fridge for guest snacks/light lunch makings or personal beverages. There is also a microwave there in order to heat up leftovers and a TV for those who just need a fix in addition to the excellent WI-FI connection that covers the entire complex.

    If you are interested in staying at Villa Escondida, do contact Magda and David and they will take good care of you. Best Wishes to all for a wonderful holiday !!

    Room Tip: Only four identical rooms, King bed, two on first floor, two on second floor. Outside steps to second floor. AC, ceiling fan, closet, en suite bathroom with very large walk in shower.
