My friend and I took our new tradition of Friendsgiving international this year, and being big fans of Bachelor in Paradise, we knew we wanted to stay here after three days in Puerto Vallarta. This place is so magical. The staff is awesome- Juan and David at the beach bar are the best. Guest services was so helpful with everything...

Wow, what an incredible resort at such a great location! You truly feel 100% removed from everything and everyone here. You get to enjoy the lush jungle and pristine beach with only a few other people at the resort. Eli was so friendly and welcomed us! He took us down to the beach where we enjoyed cocktails at the cute...

We always make this a special night while visiting Sayulita! Tonight we were lucky enough to share dinner with new friends we met where we were staying. We have always enjoyed our visits here and wanted to share the experience with new friends. As always, the atmosphere and view are amazing! We arrived early so we could watch the sunset...

Playa Escondido means "hidden beach" and the place is really hidden. Make sure you have good directions if you drive yourself, but you will not regret the visit. We stayed in "Guest House", which is a bit isolated, but that's what we wanted. The bungalow is open to the jungle around, you can hear it at night. Some houses, including...

This is one of the nicest resorts we have ever been to. The facilities are clean and well maintained. The Villas are cute. Hideaway is perfect for a couple. The service at the restaurant was extraordinary and the food excellent. Thank you David for helping us learn some Spanish. As for the food, if you want it, they'll make it....

We had been enjoying Playa Escondida for 9 years until we returned this Fall. Upon arrival our bags were misplaced, the Internet wasn't working, and our golf cart wasn't "ready". When we located our bags we climbed up to our room to change into more comfortable beach clothes. We were truly looking forward to our welcome drink in the lovely...

We were very pleased to have you back again however you arrived just as we were upgrading our internet network. I apologize for the intermittent service that day. Although you got to your room before your bags, they weren’t actually misplaced, but were still at the Reception office; sorry for the misunderstanding. Your golf cart should have been ready when...

So, a little about us... we are two 20-somethings who LOVE to travel! We've seen almost all 50 states and 40 countries. We consider ourselves very well traveled and I am a bit of a snob in terms of overall vibe and needing the resort to feel both luxe and have great food. This place was fantastic! From the moment...
