“Best value accomodation of our 7 weeks in Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We planned to stay for 3 nights and ended up staying for over 2 weeks. The location was perfect- close to beach but quiet and secluded. The owners could not have been more pleasant, friendly or helpful. They made us feel extremely welcome from the moment we arrived, which was early in the morning after a 13 hr bus ride, until we reluctantly left. With only 8 rooms, it was easy to meet people but also to find a quiet spot by the pool to read and relax. The kitchen was so practical. We were in need of some home cooking by the time we got there. Everything was so, so clean. The pool was a sparkling relief from the heat. Speaking English again was also a blessing. We couldn't recommend Hotelita Swiss Oasis more highly.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

What say's more about our "Oasis", then if people do like you and extend their stay! Provided, of course, that it is possible ;-)! THANK YOU A LOT for that!!! Yes do also think it's best, if possible, not book up a whole trip, so that it gives one the chance to extend if it's great, or shorten if not :-). We did also always travel this way, but you have to have a bit time to do so of course. Anyway, thank you again for staying with us, we are happy we could make you beeing a part of the "Oasis".
All the best to you both, lots of travelling and that you stay in good health to enjoy our beautiful planet. Hugs from Puerto Escondido, Manuela, René & the whole Swiss Oasis family

A very friendly hotel with everything you need . We loved our 5 nights here and would loved to have stayed longer. The beds are comfortable, the pool is great and the hotel is only a short walk to nearby restaurants. Manuela and Rene are great hosts and Luna (their dog) and the cats make the hotel like a home.

Great location in the middle of playa Zicatela, just off the road to avoid noise. Lovely owner was very helpful. We even rented her scooter for a day to explore nearby towns and beaches. Nice clean rooms. Coolest spot without air con in town (air con seems very rare and a lot more expensive, even in the hottest month of the year, we were comfortable). Cheap cold water and beer for sale and a beautiful pool in the immaculate gardens which produce free mangoes and bananas. Highly recommend!

Well it is my third year in a row coming back to stay here at the oasis. It is more beautiful than ever. The gardens are filled with bright colours and fruits bananas galore. As always Manuela and Rene go out of their way to make your stay perfect. The rooms are big, cool, clean, quiet. I have spent plenty of hours studying by the sparkling pool and meeting the other guests who all seem to have wonderful stories of their travels from all over the world. I cannot recommend staying here high enough. I so look forward to returning as soon as possible.

We travelled Mexico for 6 weeks over the Christmas period and stayed in many many different types of accomodation from 5 star to 2 star and this place was by far our favourite. We were welcomed with open arms and felt at home straight away. The comfort and energy of this hotel is something special. I have worked as a manager in a 5 star resort in Bondi beach Australia for 10 years and I know the industry inside and out and I can't give this hotel and the owners enough praise as to how they operate their hotel and treat their guests. They went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. There is so many places to chose from in puerto escondito and I am sure we found the best. We will most definately be back and can only give my biggest praise and recommendation of this hotel. Thank you again for everything and we cherish the memories you created for us. See you again Sophie and Tyronne from Australia

Great little hotel with friendly and helpful owners. Everything is well tended and there are some lovely little touches, e.g. an honesty system fridge for drinks, a small kitchen you can use, 'free for all' shelf in both kitchen and for general items (sunblock, toiletries), magazine & book collection. You'll also love the cheerful colours everywhere. There is a nice pool area, plenty of shade and blissfully quiet as the hotel doesn't accept children. The rooms are clean and with good fans. This is the hottest time of the year and it was fine (admittedly we used the fans for 4 people with only 2).

The only point of criticism would be that the hotel only accepts cash and cash machines in P.E. proved very unreliable during our stay. So my general advice would be: stock up on cash before traveling here until the hotel can sort out other types of payment.

Also incidentally, don't book via booking.com (perhaps the hotel owners can indicate here which other booking websites they are on): booking.com had indicated the price in UK £, but when the booking confirmation came through it was in USD, obviously using a terrible exchange rate, so it ended up costing an extra $30 for the stay, plus they aren't very transparent on the booking page with tax rates not well displayed, which amounts to nearly another 20% of the total cost added.
