Reviewed 5 March 2014

Quinta Lili is one of those little places you'd rather people didn't hear about -- it's such a treasure whenever you're in need of some absolute tranquil bliss. But keeping the secret wouldn't be fair to your wonderful host Adelina. She's endlessly cheerful and always helpful with the latest great dining and excursion tips. This is the way to experience Mexico away from those all-inclusive bubbles that can sometimes seem like some little Canadian enclave transplanted to a private beach. Adelina and the tireless Magda prepare a different authentico breakfast for you every morning, steps from your room and the small, refreshing pool. Only five rooms here, so it's not at all unusual to have the place to yourself at times. This area of PE, Rinconada, is removed from the somewhat tired sprawl of Zicatela and the Adoquin, which remain just a $3 cab ride away. A better option is the great little strip of restaurants and shops very close by. Try Luna Rosa for pizza, Cafe Cito for coffee and mango cream rolls, and Turtle Bay for shrimp cocktail and fish. Take any excursion on offer to Manialtepec Lagoon. We've done the birding tour (unforgettable) and this last visit were fortunate to experience the bio-luminescence one evening -- sort of like Life of Pi's glowing sea but without the help of Industrial Light and Magic. You dip yourself into a real magical mystery of nature.
We love Quinta Lili and Adelina is an absolute gem. It's impossible not to immediately start planning another return visit.

Room Tip: The sunrise room on the second floor has the superior deck and great views.

We had a wonderful time at Quinta Lilil.

The location is great right behind the nicest beach in PE. The rooms and premises are safe, clean , spacious and very nicely decorated. There is a chill out area with super nice music by the pool, a bar to relax and laze...

But what makes the place really special it's the people : the owner Adelina a super energetic and really kind Mexican lady who has tastefully decorated and arranged the place , the staff and the cook who is preparing fresh breakfasts every day.

Adelina provides great advices, small chat , and is overal a charming hostess with all the guests contributing to make the saty at Quinta Lili a wonderful experience.

We liked: the space, setting, interior design and landscaping of the place,overal atmosphere and cooking.

Reccomended for a romantic /couples gateaway.
We hope to be back soon.

This is a slice of paradise. Lovely boutique hotel. It often felt as if we were in our own, private resort except with a great, friendly staff. Magdalena provided a hot breakfast every morning; while you are lounging around the pool, beer, coke, etc. available in the fridge on an honor system. Comfortable beds. It is a bit of a hike to the beach. A tourist district with good restaurants is within easy walking distance. It is a longer walk, maybe 20-25 minutes, to the city center. Easily available cabs can take you back and forth for 20 pesos. Owner, who speaks excellent English, provided us a thorough orientation to the community and helped us set up a birding tour.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms may be a bit close to public areas if you like to sleep late

Quinta Lily is in a perfect location for non-surfers – within easy walking distance of the best beaches, excellent (and cheap) restaurants and the harbour/main shops. The boutique hotel has all relevant facilities (including internet access) although the pool is small; the rooms are spotless; and the special cooked Mexican breakfasts are delightful. Most of all, the proprietor – Adelina – is immensely welcoming and helpful and very involved in the local community, arranging for us to help release baby turtles at a conservation centre at a nearby secluded beach.
Highly recommended.

Quiet, comfortable, informal, inspiring. That's what Quinta Lili feels like to me. We stayed just a week ago for the second time in 3 years. Hosts Adelina and Magdalena instantly make you feel at home while catering to your every interest. Arrive from the airport without the proper cab fare? Magda will jump in with a few pesos. Want to liberate turtles? Ade will tell you where and when to go. Want to find out what a tlayuda tastes like? Ade will point you to the best places. Want to try out a new beach? Lots of absolutely beauties to choose from. Bust up your shoulder on a boogie-board digger? Local chiropractor Tom comes highly recommended. Simply put, QL is a treasure within reach of most people's budgets. It's in the nicest part of Puerto Escondido, tucked away in a residential neighborhood but walkable to the sweetest beach on the planet and nearby restaurants. PE is a cheap cab ride away, but with a spot so lovely and service this helpful, you won't find many reasons to make the trip to town. Highly, highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you want a posh place, this isn't for you. If you want straightforward, clean and comfortable...

I was lucky enough to spend 5 days in Quinta Lili and 5 days in Villa Lili and I am sad I ever had to leave. The properties are both perfect and set on the most beautiful beach in all of Puerto.

The staff at both villas are wonderful, the breakfasts are delicious and the rooms are spacious and relaxing.

What really makes Quinta and Villa Lili deserving of their top spots on TripAdvisor is the hospitality of Adelina, the part owner and manager of the properties. Adelina is so warm and genuinely cares about the wellbeing of all of her guests. She goes above and beyond at a moments notice and I am now honoured to call her a friend.

Do yourself a favour - book a ticket, get on a plane and get to Quinta Lili as soon as you can. You will not regret it. Hopefully you will see me there!
