Reviewed 20 June 2016

First time in Mexico, stayed at this place. It became my favorite place.

Spacious room, best location. Very clean. Vegetarian food is amazing and their breakfasts are delicious.

Location is amazing, just in front of the beach.

This was my first time in Puerto Escondido and I must say staying at this hotel made all the difference. Most commendable about the hotel is its excellent restaurant. After heading out to the various beach palapa restaurants and being ripped-off with bad food and terrible service, we had dinner at the hotel restaurant once and never looked back! Food was well-priced, the menu varied – with an amazing vegetarian selection (unheard of in Mexico) – and every dish we sampled was absolutely delicious. The bungalows are not bungalows at all but rather a kind of house with 4 apartments. That said, each has a very private feel and has a pleasant terrace with table, chairs and hammock. There is a very nice pool in leafy surroundings with sun-loungers. The apartment itself is spacious with basic furnishings. The bathroom is nice and stocked with shampoo, soap, and conditioner. There is a free purified water dispenser on each floor which is excellent. The TV has English channels. Within a few steps of a gorgeous white-sand beach with large waves. This is definitely a better and cleaner beach than some of the others in Puerto. The hotel is within short walking distance of an ATM, shops, and a supermarket. The air-conditioning is efficient but oddly placed in the kitchen rather than in the bedroom, so it has to be left on all day to cool down the apartment eventually. The ceiling fans work well although they are rather noisy. On the down side, the wifi although free had a very weak signal. The service at the front desk was variable from somewhat hostile to passable. The apartments on the lower floor are not recommended because of foot traffic – try for one on the top floor. Although the terraces are sea-facing, you cannot see the sea because of the tall palm trees on the beach covering the view. Overall, highly recommended.

I have for many years on spent a week or two with family and freind over Christmas at the Santa Cruz Bungalows and always enjoyed it very much. There are only eight bungalows, four in every building so you don´t see the neighbours much. The pool is nearly always alone since many take to the beach or one of the two pools in the Santa Fe Hotel right next to it. I prefer the bungalow pool since it is not as warm as the other pools, it is just perfect for cooling you down. We would have a light meal in the bungalow and vegetarian food at the restaurant in the Hotel. If you want to vary there are plenty of places around. I highly recomend it for couples and families.

Room Tip: They are all pretty much the same

My husband and I stayed for many years at the Bungalows Santa Cruz. We enjoyed having the privacy of our own swimming pool and kitchen but still having all the amenities of the main hotel. The restaurant is one of the best in Puerto and for sure has one of the best vistas of the ocean. The location is very central and you can access the beaches quite easlily. I know you will enjoy your stay there.
