“Wish I could keep Villa Escondida a secret....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2009

...but.....it would not be fair to be so selfish. My husband and I truly enjoyed our 3 day stay at Villa Escondida. Hosts, Magda and David are fantastic. They welcomed us and got us settled into our room very quickly. King size bed, AC, ceiling fan, very large shower and bathroom area. There was plenty of storage to keep our belongings. The rooms were spotless.

In no time at all we were swimming in the beautiful pool, relaxing under the umbrellas, lounging in hammocks on the palapa covered patio, walking around the well kept grounds and taking photos of the many blooming flowering plants on the property.

Included in the rate is a full breakfast each morning. Due to our daily schedule we asked for light breakfasts for two of our mornings. These breakfasts consisted of a beautiful selection of fruit and breakfasts breads, fresh squeezed orange juice and Coffee, which is available early. For the morning we opted for a full breakfast, Magda prepared for us delicious banana pancakes with a side platter of freshly cut assorted fruits.

Since Villa Escondida is located in town, walking to the many restaurants for lunch and dinners is very convenient. In fact, one of our most favorite restaurants, La Choza is across the street. However, even though Villa Escondida is in town, one would never know it once inside the front door. Michael and I have stayed at various places on the island and we definetly have never had such quiet and restful sleep. Even during the day very little traffic noise can be heard. Villa Escondida is very quiet, private, and relaxing.

We highly recommend Villa Escondida and look forward to future stays there.

Villa Escondida is a wonderful retreat. David has fresh coffee waiting for you in the morning and Magda fixes an excellent breakfast served by David on the patio. Villa Escondida is a wonderful change form the hustle and bustle of the large resorts. It is ideal for a romantic get away and adventure. You can relax by the pool or the patio, take a short walk to the main plaza to visit local shops and people watch. If you like the feel of a resort you can spend the day at Caribe Beach Club for the price of a drink or lunch. For adventure try spending morning deep sea fishing – David will help you arrange it. We were in Cozumel during Carnival. The nightly parades were the best that we have ever seen. Amazing costumes, dancing, and music! We highly recommend spending your vacation at Villa Escondida with David and Madga.

We spend a wonderful week at this B&B. Our hosts, Magda and David are very kind. Magda's breakfasts were culinary treats, with something different every day. The pool was refreshing, the landscaping lovely, the rooms are clean and comfortable. They had a cute friendly little dog. We loved the location, as we could walk to the main square in a few minutes. We are dreaming of our next trip back.

I spent 2 wonderful weeks with Magda and David at Villa Escondida and can't wait to return. David built the guest rooms himself and took great care to ensure every comfort for his guests. His lovely wife Magda works extra hard to make sure that their guests are looked after, well fed a lovely breakfast every morning and well-informed about Cozumel restaurants, shopping, and beaches.
Please go and see them and send my warmest regards. Sue

Villa Escondida is a delightful B&B in the heart of Cozumel. Step into the courtyard and you're in a quiet relaxed atmosphere away from the bustle of the town. It's just a block from Parque Benito Juarez, the town square at the center of activities. The rooms are immaculate and private and the common areas are very relaxing. The pool shimers at night and in the morning Magda's breakfasts are phenominal. I was there during Carnivale with activities every night but the topper was the SPECTACULAR parade which they love so much it runs for 4 nights in a row! It is impossible to sit still with the driving music. Vive' Cozumel!
