“An Oasis Indeed”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We have spent time with Magda and David over the past two years and each time the experience is wonderful. The facility provides tranquility and restfulness. It's well located with at least a half dozen excellent restaurants within a five minute walk. The Central Plaza is just minutes away where Sunday nights are not to be missed. Each day the breakfasts are uniquely prepared by Magda and David's fresh squeezed orange juice is so satisfying! The bedrooms provide lots of space and the beds guarantee a great nights sleep. Each day starts with lots of sunshine and the ringing bells of San Miguel! Our hosts were always there for information on local attractions and if you can try to be there for the annual Carnival celebrations! We shall return!!

Room Tip: The breezes are always better in the upper rooms......

We have just returned from spending five nights at Villa Escondida, and could not be happier with our experience. Magda and David have created a garden oasis in central San Miguel, within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and waterfront of the town. Slipping into the Villa's walled compound offers the traveler an instant opportunity to leave the congestion of the town behind, and enjoy a tranquil rest within the private garden. Breakfast was different and delicious each morning, and our room was clean and comfortable. And Magda and David know the "best" spots to check out. We'll be back.

We just returned from 9 days at Villa Escondido, Cozumel on February 18, 2014. We booked it based on TripAdvisor pictures and comments and the pictures do not exaggerate, so look them over. We’ve stayed in places like this in Europe and Hawaii and Villa Escondido sets the highest bar.

A lot of love and creativity went into Villa Escondido. The grounds are very peaceful. The property is very well maintained newer construction. The walls are stucco over 6” block with dual pane windows so you can have a lot of quiet when you want it. There is a high perimeter wall around the property so it feels very private and secure; however, crime statistics for Cozumel are very low compared to most cities in the States.

Each suite has 3 windows; we preferred having them open to invite the cross breeze. We liked hearing the birds, church bells and local life. All the screens were in excellent condition, something we rarely find but want because bugs seek us out over all other people within 100 yards.

A very nice mix of locals and visitors walk around at night enjoying the beachfront town and central plaza. The tourists and snowbird industry is very important to the island people; they are very friendly, helpful and most speak English. We walked miles and miles around town and did beach crawls along the road to southwest beaches, stopping to swim and snorkel along the way. We had nothing but good experiences.

There are travelers and there are vacationers. “Vacationers” like to bring “home” with them and only dip their toe into the destination and thus tend to stay in large hotels. “Travelers” like to melt in a bit to their destinations. And Villa Escondido is perfect for this. Gracious owners, David and Magna, have all kinds of tips for you. They also have a book with “tips” on local beaches and restaurants that we used a lot.

They serve wonderful home made breakfasts to get your day started!!

My boyfriend and I spent a delightful week at Villa Escondida. The room was incredibly comfortable (and spotless). We slept like babies. The location is perfect. The garden is beautiful and a perfect setting to enjoy Magda's delicious home-cooked breakfasts every morning (what a treat!) while sharing a cup of coffee with David and other guests. We loved it. Magda and David go above and beyond for their guests. Would we stay there again? Without a doubt.

We spent a wonderful week with Magda and David at the Villa Escondida. Centrally situated, well maintained property. Comfy and clean rooms with good A/C and shower. Breakfasts are amazing and are definitely to be lingered over while chatting with other guests and enjoying the surrounding garden. Magda went above and beyond to help us with arrangements for car rental and snorkel trip plus other very useful information. Sadly the weather was not in our favour the week we were there and we did not get as much beach time as hoped. We will definitely be back but will try a different time of year.

What more could you ask for. But to add: beds are very comfortable, great AC, strong hot showers and absolutely stunning grounds! Homemade breakfast and stimulating conversation every morning. Also if you are a pet lover and had to leave yours at home, cutie pie makes a great stand in for your visit, and does not mind excessive belly rubs one bit;) The location is in the heart of downtown close to everything, yet once you are enclosed within the walls of the property it is serene and quiet. Just by all these reviews alone you should try this place, you will not regret it...ENJOY and Thanks so much David and Magda. Lawrence and Tina

One of the best B & B's. I have travelled and stayed in many different hotels, b & b's, hostels and home stays. This one might top them all! Don't miss out on this experience. Great for couples, families or solo travellers. Also, the location is perfect.

Room Tip: Make sure you try the breakfast!
