I was delighted with my stay at this spot on Zicatela Beach. The property is well designed and well maintained. It was very clean inside and out. Everything worked well except the WiFi. I complained to Reception but was told that it was standard for Puerto Escondido. He said they had some guest computers connected to the Internet by cable... More

Having just travelled with friends to Puerto Escondido, I had an amazing, diverse experience at the Hotel Rockaway. The Rockaway combines the perfect balance of contemporary hotel amenities with a Central American vibe. The staff were courteous, professional, and also knowledgeable about the local area, which was helpful for a few daily tours and activities. Our room was clean and... More

Amazing hotel. Beautiful rooms and bathrooms. I was so relaxed there. Hotel may not have a beach view but when you are a few steps from the beach it's not an issue. Very friendly staff. Hotel is very clean. Couple of clean cool pools available and a small collection of shops. Also there's a spa and tattoo shop available. I... More

I came to this hotel tired and exhausted from my travels in Mexico. Unfortunately, I was hit with a cold due to lack of sleep and rest. This place brought me back to life.

Recently returned from a three week holiday touring Oaxaca beaches from Hautulco to Puerto Escondido and Rockaway was the most disappointing place we stayed.

Hotel is still under construction. Lots of hammering etc during the day. Things don't work even though it is apparently new/remodelled. Also doesnt have any Mexican charm. They are trying to be contemporary in an area where that doesn't work. People don't come to Puerto Escondido to have a Cancun experience! There are so many other great hotels on Zicatela... More
