“Charming home-like hotel”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

We stayed at the "Flor" last week, and we found that the welcome by Paul and Joanne was absolutely fantastic. Felt "at home" at the front desk.
The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. Balcony was small, but great to have a door that opens.
The rooftop pool and bar was a great place to spend some quiet time and enjoy the view of the bay and a great breeze.
Restaurant was excellent....Try the Shrimp in Garlic......
Will return to this hotel when we return to Puerto Escondido
Many thanks, Paul and Joanne

You can't ask for much more. Simple full service rooms with comfortable beds, fans, good bathrooms, a 30 second walk to the beach (but enough off the beach to give you a feeling of being set-back), the best restaurant in Puerto Escondido, charming under-stated Mexican decor (yes, there is such a thing) and friendly hosts who are Canadian, European, and Mexican all at the same time. You can walk to town, to the world famous Mexican Pipeline to watch the surfers, or to any of several local beaches, either Playa Marinera or Bahia Principale in front of the hotel or two minutes to the Zicatela, or ten minutes to Carrizalilla or Manzanilla. We have trailed on all continents and would recommend Flor de Maria highly on any standard

Room Tip: They're all good, but decide whether you want the afternoon sun or not. We did.

I was incredibly relieved to find this place - when I first landed in Puerto I stayed at an absolute dump in El Adoquin. Flor de Maria is tucked away at the Playa Marinero end of the main beach - the cleanest place to swim. Its a 30 second walk from the beach, and a great place to stay if you want to relax away from the tacky bustle of backpackers at Zicatela. The hosts are unbelievably helpful. The hotel itself has a restaurant with cheap, delicious food, as well as a terrace on the roof with hammocks, a swimming pool and a bar overlooking the beach. I spent many an afternoon swinging in a hammocks reading books borrowed from their library. The rooms are spacious and very cute, too. I had a wonderful stay here - highly reccommended.

We traveled during the last week of November....a very slow time with few tourists. We were trying to decide between Quinta Lili and Flor de Maria. We are so happy we stayed at Flor de Maria. Quinta Lili is far from the center and a lot of the activities ...and the walk from the nearest beach can be daunting....75 steps straight up. Flor de Maria is within a block of the main beach and we could walk to Zicatella beach easily. The sunsets from the rooftop bar are worth the stay. We were there during a quiet time so there was no one "hogging" the chairs --- no old codgers in the hammocks. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The rooms very large. We had a room with 2 double beds and a balcony which gave us lots of light. Liked the restaurant too. Our breakfast had the freshest of fruit and great egg dishes. Definitely will return.

Room Tip: A balcony room. No rooms have a view and our balcony faced the narrow street but it was quiet and w...

This charming, Canadian-run hotel is on a quiet street just steps from a wide, sandy beach. The hotel has a Mexican 1940s art deco feel to the place. The Crown jewel is the restaurant, which is the best in Puerto Escondido and tends to offer more European than Mexican fare. Joanne, one of the hotel's owners, is the chef. Her husband Paul is the front desk man. They are fabulous hosts. The rooms are spacious although there is no air-conditioning so fans are necessary to keep the temperature down. There is a rooftop pool surrounded by a large deck overlooking the ocean. A perfect place for lounging in the afternoon and having a sunset cocktail.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an exterior window that does not face south or west so the sun does not heat up...

We have been coming to PE for about 7 years, always staying at Flor de Maria. What a wonderful place! Situated between 2 different beaches with a fabulous restaurant, maybe the best in town. Everyone here is warm and inviting. We love coming here.

We fell into Flor de Maria, unexpecting and found the most wonderful oasis. Lovely staff, comfortable rooms, great location and fabulous roof-top pool from where we could watch the sunrise and sunset, along with family, friends, and anyone who wanted to join. Don't miss it. Great local flavor yet a notch above "local".
