“You won't want to leave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

A friend had set me up in a different hotel that seemed more intent on construction and party than comfort. I immediately consulted TA. Every review about Hotelito is spot on...

I was greeted by Manuela on check in and shown a quaint room in a corner. There is no AC or TV which is fine by me. The breeze through the room is enough. They have a kitchen if you want to fix your own meals. There is an Honor Bar with beer and water. They occasionally set up tours. (I am kicking myself for missing out on the trip to the sea turtle breeding beach.)

It is clean, quiet, eclectic, I enjoyed my stay

Thank you a lot for your review! We are happy that you had a relaxed stay in our little "Oasis", oh and what a pitty that you missed the turtles. But maybe next time ;-), you just have to make sure to come right moment (June - Nov., a couple of days after full moon). We're looking forward to have you again and wish you a wonderful time!

I can say nothing furthermore that is already spelt in the other comments.
It is the best place on zicatela, If you want to visit or surf. The place is very good located. It's not directly on the main road, so you havent' the noise from the Bar and the street.
Thank you Manuela & René for this good moments.
I hope we se you soon !!!

A great and personable hotel to stay at. The rooms are clean, the beds are better than most of the other places in PE. There is no air conditioning but the fan turned up and the sliding door open allowed to adequate air flow. The pillows were less than to be desired - very uncomfortable so bring your own.
The owner of the hostel is great, very friendly and hospitable.
It can be a bit noisy if people decide to sit out late at night talking amongst themselves, as the sit right out the front of the bedrooms.
Private bathrooms with very good showers. It's a very safe and trustworthy hotel.

Hi Therés! First of all, thank you a lot for this review. To bad we did not meet personaly, because we where on vacation during your stay and our good friend Marianne has taken care of our place. Wonderful to hear that you had a great time, but we are very sorry about your pillow experience. Those pillows should'nt have been in any room! We actually exchange all pillows every couple of weeks, specialy during rain season and we just got them exchanged before we left on vacation. Now those which sneaked into your room got by mistake to the laundry service and they mess them up... I wanted to keep them for our dog Luna, as she loves to sleep on a pillow and I guess it would have matter to her to have some knots in her pillow ;-). So sorry again that they landed into our room. We have got them already exchanged, so would the maid or Marianne have done if you had reported this to her after the first night. But good you mentioned it on Tripadvisor, thank you a lot for that and for your nice review. Happy to hear you liked our little Oasis and that you even came back! We hope to meet you one day in personaly and wish you a wonderful time, Manuela

Hotelito Swiss Oasis is aptly named. Such a great location, a beautiful property, so clean and incredibly well maintained. Manuella is the perfect hostess, with helpful tips for everything. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place when you are staying in Escondido - you won't get a better deal anywhere... Thanks for a wonderful stay Manuella.

We came to Swiss Oasis after three nights roughing it in a hostel and it was such a relief. The room are spacious and clean with private bathrooms, the hotel has a beautiful pool area and the location is central to all of the restaurants and night life of Zicatela. Manuella is amazing and looked after us so well with all sorts of tips, from where to get a collectivo to the markets to what to order from which restaurants. She even lent me a camera cable that I left at our last destination and when I couldn't find a replacement, she sold me her one. Plus, they have beers and bottled water for 15 pesos - amazing! I'd recommend Swiss Oasis to anyone and will be back if I ever come to Puerto again.

This place is a great pick if you choose to stay in Puerto Escondido. It's aptly named as Puerto Escondido can become very hot and humid in the summer and it's a party town too. It's an Oasis in the sense of it's location and due to the fact that is has a pool. The location is ideal as it's centrally located on Playa Zicatela but because it's little bit back from the beach it's nice and quiet. On hot and humid summer days the pool is an awesome respite, a facility that not all hotels in Puerto Escondido have. Most importantly your hosts Manuela and René are incredibly welcoming, hospitable and helpful. I only mentioned that a mosquito bit me over night, immediately our hosts found a mosquito net and hung it up over my bed. These guys know the area well and recommend places to eat and explore. Couldn't recommend it enough.

We spent 4 nights with Manuela, Rene and Luna( the dog) plus the 5 cats and had the most warm reception from all of them. It's very centrally located on Playa Zicatela with lots of the beach clubs, bars and restaurants at your door step. The place itself is off the main road, so nice and quiet. The pool is a huge bonus on the hot days mid summer and a great place to interact with both guests who in our case were an international crowd that swapped ideas and stories on travel. The rooms are immaculately clean, have Internet access and hot water. We loved it here and even ended up extending our stay. I'd be back!
