“Mexican charm meets Swiss efficiency”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Previous reviewers have done an accurate and excellent job of describing the Swiss Oasis. Yes, it is all true!

My husband and I have vacationed annually in Puerto for the past 7 yrs. We rent an apt in another area of town for a month. This year we wanted to add a few more days to our visit (apt was unavailable) so we decided to stay in the Zicatela area. We spent 3 nts at the Swiss Oasis; great quiet location, relaxing, well-kept and CLEAN. The Swiss Oasis truly is Mexican charm meets Swiss efficiency.

We stayed here for 10 days and wish we could have stayed longer. The owners Manuela and Rene are super-friendly, relaxed and welcoming.

The location is perfect if you want to be close to Playa Zicatela and Playa Marina as well as a big range of shopping, eating, drinking places, yoga etc. Manuela will give you a map and help with whatever questions you have about the area.

We stayed at the beginning of the hot, humid season and found our room to be very comfortable. It was on the upper level, with a king-size bed, 2 fans, large sliding door (good for breezes), big bathroom and private patio all under the palapa roof which stays cool and lets the breeze come and go. The rooms are cleaned thoroughly every day. Sheets and towels changed every 3 days. Extra towels for the pool and/or washing long hair are provided without having to ask for them.

There is a good kitchen for guests and Manuela regularly picks the various fruit and herbs from around the garden and leaves it in the kitchen for guests to enjoy. There's a decent selection of books as well if you finish your own book ahead of time.

The Swiss Oasis is a very well run hotel, full of extra little comforts that go along way toward making your stay stress-free and enjoyable.

We went there with our little daugher of 2 1/2 years, stayed for around 6 or 7 nights and had the most wonderful time. Location is perfect, near nice restaurants and the Zicatela beach. There is also a kitchen for the guests, that was very practical to use. Definitely the place to stay if you plan a laid back plan in Puerto Escondido!

This hotel is wonderful. You can tell that the owners are travelers themselves as they know what people need.

The location:
It is more than 50 meters set back from the main street of Zicatela. I was worried about having access to beaches we could swim in but the location is maybe a 5 minute walk to the more protected area. In addition the surf was not very high while we were there so we could swim right in front of the hotel area. Because the hotel is set back there is minimal noise from the bars on the beach.

The rooms:
There are 8 rooms available all of which have identical bathrooms. The bathrooms have nice showers with good water pressure and hot water. They have king size beds! We had an upstairs room which has more space and light. There were windows on three sides which allowed for cool air to circulate well ( we were cold in the mornings with the fans on). They have hooks everywhere so you will always have someplace to hang towels, clothes, whatever! When we checked in we received 5 towels: 2 for the shower, 2 for the beach, and one for my long hair! (Very thoughtful) There are also some shelves and small tables so you can explode your bags adequately.

The setting:
There is a very nice pool area with beautiful landscaping with lounge chairs and tables. This worked out well for us as there is also a kitchen to use. We made are own guacamole (expensive in restaurants) and beer there most afternoons. Sometimes the owners but fresh basil or lemongrass in the kitchen to use from their garden.

Pets:
The hotel is pet friendly. The owners do have 4 cats and one dog. All of which are trained to leave you alone. I didnt even know they had a dog until a few days had past. She never barks and never jumps on you.

Internet:
Works well especially in the morning. It can be slow in the afternoons.

Overall this was an awesome place to spend a week and relax. We didnt plan much but when we did we always got all the information we needed. Very recommended!

We spent four nights here, and lovet it! Our main goal was to relax, and get some tan. This is the perfect place to do that. Laying by the pool was perfect for us. There are four sunbeds and we never had any problem getting one. They also have three tables with chairs, so always a place to sit.

Very comfortable and spacy rooms, with kingsize bed! Lots of places to hang your cloths, and a nice little balcony. No A/C but no need either, there is a nice breeze and we had two fans in the room. Everything is super clean. You also get towels to use at the pool or the beach, which is nice too offer your customers,

They have a nice little kitchen, which was perfect because we had a tight budget. And we where the only one using it, luxury! The restaurants in Puerto Escondido is a bit pricy, not that easy to find cheap food.

Location is perfect, close to the beach, bars and restaurants. We also stayed in la Punta, but found it too far away from everything. One thing you should think about when staying in Zicatela is noise. It can be very noisy with all the bars. But we had no problem with noise in Swiss Oasis, that for me is important! The hotel can be a bit difficult to find (our taxi driver had no idea), but it is located on the small road next to the restaurant Mangos (Mangos is in the loney planet).

Manuela and Rene, the owners, is really nice and helpfull people. Manuela gave us a map when we arrived and showed us the different places, and trips, we could do. We also had to see a doctor, and she wrote down the name of a clinique near by.

Is your going to Puerto Escondido this is the place to stay! Not that pricy either. We would go back!

We stayed in the Hotelito Swiss Oasis the beginning of December and LOVED it! It is such a relaxed place to stay with a very 'homey' feel to it. The beds are very comfortable. Also the shower is very nice with plenty of hot water.
Manuela and Rene are great hosts, very friendful and helpful. They also have a nice pool and a kitchen + fridge so if you want you can make your own meals. There are plenty of restaurants in the area though but it's nice to have a choice.
The location is great, close to restaurants, shops and the Zicatela beach.
We hope to come back again soon!
