Our first trip here was Soooo good, we came back again, 10 months later. Playa Escondida is better than ever. Others have written up all the high points. Some of the things that stayed with me this trip were: the unparalleled beauty of this shoreline,...More

Playa Escondida tries to deliver an experience that won’t compare to others, and besides the beautiful grounds, each one of our staff members gets to know you and as you got to see you become friends to us; we don’t have TV’s in our rooms...More

We are in a very privileged location close to Sayulita but faraway enough so that you can get to see whales from your own balcony or the beach and we are glad you experienced this with us. We try to stay true to our name...More

Don't come here, don't tell others about it. They put stuff in your drinks to make you feel good (probably alcohol) and make you believe you have found the most beautiful gem of a resort in all of Mexico. The service staff reinforces that idea...More
