Well located at the end of the zicatela strip, which is nice as is the quieter end of town. Our room was on the top floor with a gas hob and large fridge freezer and some cooking utensils. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We planned on staying for a week, but extended to 3 weeks. Only issue is the plumbing, sometimes water would be off. If we go back to Puerto Escondido, we will be sure to stay here again.

Room Tip: Id recommend one of the roadside upstairs room, sea view from the balcony is very pleasant.

Papaya Surf Hotel was just what we were after for our stay in Puerto Escondido. Right across the road from Zicatela beach, pool, Steps away from shops and bars.

We stayed in a 2 double bed room, private bathroom, private outdoor kitchen. Equipped with cooking utensils, cold fridge and freezer, little dining table and outdoor hammock.

I really enjoyed our stay here, house keeping was great, hot shower, steps away from the pool or beach. Beautiful old building a little rustic, seems as though they are renovating to create a bar or restaurant which would be awesome.

If your looking for something a little upscale this place isn't for you but if you want a non expensive piece of privacy with air conditioning, a fan and a pool to keep you cool during the peak sun hours then this place is for you.

Room Tip: Looking at Papaya surf from the road the right side of the building gets shade all day and keeps the room nice and cool.

With some paint & other maintenance I think this place could be pretty nice. As it is the place has a really worn feel, plumbing not always functional etc. On the plus side Marco the owner is a very cool and friendly guy and very flexible with his rates. It is close to all the Zicatela action so expect some noise all night.

We stayed here for 8 days on a trip through Mexico from New Zealand and it was one of the nicest places we stayed in all of Mexico. It was just what we were looking for in terms of a relaxed environment, all the essentials and wonderful staff and housekeepers. We often left our room a bit of a shambles and always returned to find the beds made and bathrooms clean and tidy.
The restaurant below served fantastic food and great coffee. Thank you so much for making Puerto our top location. We will be back to stay with you :)
