This is beachfront hippie-chic at its finest: palapas and canopied beds, sensual organic architecture and scads of luscious lounge-worthy spots.

Add to that al fresco yoga and massage, jungle explorations followed by a gourmet repast and glorious waves for hanging ten and you have a recipe for eco-perfection. Rooms are wide open and offer a combination of beach views, jungle views and even canyon views from five palapa-topped teak bungalows situated a quarter-mile from the main hotel.

Service is personalized and unobtrusive—it's a place where everybody knows your name, if only to make sure you're having the best time possible and you have everything you need to zen out. We suggest packing light, namely a carry-on with a selection of teeny bikinis, one perfect pair of sandals, three linen dresses and a brand new tube of Bain de Soleil Orange Gelée.

Incredible...once again!!

Marvin T Greenup, Kentucky

We have looked at many places on the internet, trying to find something similar to Playa Escondida. You may find one that is similar, but you will never find a place that is this beautiful, has such amazing staff, and welcomes you from year to year, like you were just there yesterday. We know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we will be back many more times to see our friends at this magical place.

Absolute Paradise

Jenn R Ingersoll, Canada

This was our second magical stay at Playa Escondida and we truly loved every moment of it. The resort offers true tranquility and relaxation. We sat on the beach for hours and took it the beauties of the ocean and felt like there was no one else around even though the resort was completely sold out… We have absolutely found paradise and the warm-hearted (family like) staff truly makes this resort everything! Thank you so much to everyone at Playa Escondida. There is no doubt we will be making this our yearly destination.

Playa Escondida is AMAZING

Remo_Gaggi Sacramento, California

Playa Escondida is truly a remarkable resort due to its beautiful location and its amazing staff. Nearly 100% of the reviews here echo that, but reviews cannot adequately describe how special this resort is. You need to experience it yourself. It will be the closest you will ever get to having your own private beach, restaurant, and staff… Playa Escondida is truly a magical place and it exceeded all of our expectations. If you’re old enough to remember the old tv show, “Fantasy Island”, it’s like that in many ways.
