“Tropical heaven”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Villa Lilli, the hosts were super friendly and the room was well presented. I loved the mosaic detail which made it all part of the Mexican experience. The breakfasts were so tasty and varied every morning, there were a lot of vegetarian options which I was really happy about. The pool was very refreshing and great to have the cooler jacuzzi next to the lap pool. Thank you for being such wonderful and helpful hosts, we loved every minute of it.

We stayed here for a week on our honeymoon through Central America and couldn't have been happier. Carrizalillo beach is fantastic and it is good to be a little way from Zicatela, $2 cab ride away. The hosts were great to us and even offered us a free nights Accom when we were left stranded by an airline muckup, which we didn't take but the offer was very kind.

We've spent 42 days in Puerto Escondido at Villa Lili over the past three winters and never had to cancel plans due to bad weather. And it's a good thing, because there is so much to enjoy in this picturesque town with dozens of excellent places to eat and five distinctive beaches within walking distance (or a 30 peso taxi ride). A large part of the reason we love going there has been our hostess Adelena who also serves as tour consultant, recreational director, restaurant critic, local historian and amateur rare orchid cultivator. Special moments on our past trip saw us kayaking near dusk at the nearby lagoon, taking in the PuertoFest blues festival, catching sunset after beach volleyball on Zicatela, and the spectacular Valentines Day fireworks display at nearby, Chila. We really enjoy sharing stories with the other international travelers at Villa Lili over breakfast or by the pool and it is particularly fun to renew friendships from our past trips. All the positive comments here reflect the fact that this place is a gem. There are two airlines offering direct five-hour flights from Toronto to Hualtulco where Villa Lili can set up the 1.5 hour taxi ride along the coast to PE ($60).

Room Tip: Good rooms have a view of the ocean; that would be all of them from the second floor on up.

Villa Lily is a beautiful and quite boutique hotel, with an open kitchen and bar, a refreshing pool and relaxing music playing in the background. It is s very safe and clean place, situated only a short walk from Carrizalillo Beach and the restaurants on the main boulevard. Every morning we had a freshly cooked Mexican breakfast, which was delicious. Adelina, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, willing to give suggestions about things to do and places to eat.

Had a wonderful time at Villa Lily and would highly recommend it. Can`t imagine a place with better value!!!

Beautiful small hotel with very nice pool and bar area and wonderful personnel. We stayed in Villa Llilly only for two nights, moving from Quinta Lilli (hotel owned by the same people – Adelina and Luis). We got a fabulous room with the spectacular view on the ocean and with the separate bathing room with big jacuzzi and fountain. The breakfast were delicious. Adelina - the owner is very friendly, helpful person. She is helping to arrange trips and tourist attraction such as releasing to the ocean newborn turtles or boat trips to admire dolphins or birds. She also is willing to recommend some local restaurants or dishes and I must admit we weren’t disappointed in any of her recommendations.

Room Tip: try suite on the second floor - more expensive but you will not be dissapointed

We have been to Puerto Escondido 14 times since 1990 and we really like Quinta Lili. The rates are great, the rooms are big and nice and the breakfasts are sumptuous and yummy.

We loved our stay at Villa Lili. We we there for 12 days and do not want to leave.

There was a taxi waiting for us at the airport . Ade, Luis and their staff take care of you and give deep care to the grounds and units. The grounds are both lush and spotless. There are 2 pools. One pool is good for kids to wade and the other is a 20 meter lap pool.

We were an extended family with 4 adults, 2 kids and an infant. One couple had the penthouse and the family had Balcony Room B with a King size bed and 2 single beds for the kids. There are 2 fans in that room, which is good as it gets pretty hot in Puerto Escondido.

The price was a good deal and it included breakfast. The breakfasts are fantastic. Every day, there are large bowls of fresh fruit including papaya, melon, watermelon and pineapple. There is cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit water. In addition, there are hotcakes available for the kids and each day there is a different hot breakfast. We had fish tacos, baked cheese enchiladas,omelettes and Oaxacan regional foods. Breakfast goes until 11:00, which is just wonderful for life at the beach.

It is about a 400 meter walk to the stairway down to the Carrizalillo beach. There are 167 steps, you can either take your time down and up or you can run the steps for exercise. It is our favorite beach of all time. I know that is staying a lot, as there's really lot of great beaches in the world. But, this beach is pretty special.

The Riconada business strip starts 2 blocks from the hotel and extends about 6 blocks. There are lots of options for great food - Mexican, real Italian, tacos, barbecue, chocolate, espresso, gelato, a couple bars, one with a local beer focus and a great bakery - cafe that serves the good coffee, makes flaky pastries and has traditional Mexican flood, salads, tacos and even burgers. There is also a nearby grocery for beer, chips and supplies.

We will always go back to Puerto Escondido, as long as we can. We plan to go back to Villa Lili next time.

Room Tip: Top floor unit has soaring palapa ceiling. There are real Italians running real Italian restaurants...

Great location near Carizalillo beach and the Rinconada. Fabulous breakfasts cooked fresh outdoors. Artsy rooms with comfy beds. Best of all, your host Adelina is always there to help with any travel needs you may have. This is a warm, welcoming place.
