I can't say enough about this property, it is truly a hidden gem in the middle of a jungle. It's so lush and green and every pathway is like a tropical dream. We have stayed in several different rooms over the years and we love them all for different reasons. I could listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach all day every day. The staff could not be nicer or more friendly and helpful! They treat you as if they've known you for years. The ladies at the welcome desk are so easy to work with. they always try hard to accommodate our changing schedules. The restaurant staff are so friendly and greet you with smiles every day(the food was awesome). The beach bar staff treated us like family. I do also want to mention the kitchen staff was always helping us with whatever we needed even after hours. The beach is a secluded and romantic cove with plenty of comfortable lounge chairs and a side table to hold your chips and salsa! We can't wait to go back again! Steve and Belinda Terry

Our stay at Playa Escondida was absolutely magical! After a very long and challenging year, a trip to beautiful Sayulita, and especially to Playa Escondida, was a much needed haven. In every way our stay was superb. From the stellar service, to the breathtaking sunsets enjoyed from the infinity pool (mango margarita in-hand), and the incredibly array of fresh seafood, delicious culinary specialities and the creative cocktails - each day was more perfect than the last. You may never want to leave the resort, but if you choose to, the concierges, Grecia and Diana are fabulous! They coordinated a beautiful and memorable snorkeling trip to Marieta Islands, and the riding on the beach with Antonio was incredible. This was our second stay at Playa Escondida, and before we reluctantly departed, we made plans to visit again in January. Thank you to the entire team at Playa Escondida for helping us make memories that will last a lifetime! A side note - in this unprecedented time, I truly appreciated the attention to detail, cleanliness and safety at Playa Escondida, as well as in neighboring Sayulita. It can be an anxious time to travel, but I felt the safety protocols were in place and guidelines were respected.

Playa Escondida near Sayulita is a set in a romantic setting in a secluded jungle and includes breathtaking views. The food at the restaurant is delicious and everything tastes fresh and healthy. We especially loved the mahi mahi tacos. My husband said he could eat Mahi Mahi tacos every day. We rented a golf cart at the resort and had fun driving around on the jungle roads. The service at the hotel is top notch. Everyone is so friendly. We will definitely be back in the future.

When we arrived at Playa Escondida, we wondered if we were actually in heaven. We learned that many of the other guests have returned many times over the years, and we understand why. The hotel is extremely private, quiet, and beautiful. Our days were spent wandering from the beach to the pool to the beach bar and to the restaurant - what could be better! The staff was amazing and so kind. They made us feel welcomed, taken care of, and relaxed at all times. It was hard to leave but we will definitely be back.

This hotel is truly a beautiful place. The rooms, pool, and beach are unique and the staff / service was top notch. Another bonus is Sayulita is only a 5-10 minute golf cart ride from the resort. We hope to visit again soon! Thanks, Radostina and Brad
