This is a typical tropical hotel no solid walls etc. we had a nice room but the chickens and roosters were next to our room so no sleep after 6:00. Also there were some remodeling in the hotel so no sleep after 8:00 when the roosters went back to sleep. So not much sleep. Only positive we were allowed to...

I have been travelling the world for the last year and have never encountered such a horrible experience. Myself and my boyfriend booked to stay here for four nights, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to change our booking to only one night on the day that we arrived at Villa Escondida. The young girl working the front is...

I have rented a bungalow for a month. It immediately felt like coming home. The bungalow was very cozy and is located in a beautiful garden, where you can see the hummingbirds. I came for the peace and I really found it here. Giuliana and Turie are both sympathetic.They left you alone, but if you needed them, they were there....

The rooms are big, very nice and clean. Location is also good: actually not to far from town and only less than 5 minutes to beach. You get more than you would expect by the price. BUT big dissapointment by arriving: many (barking and scary!) dogs in the property and the place, and especially the owner, looks unhygienic. The rooms...

I had the chance to spend 4 nights at villa Escondida in the amazing spot of playa del amor en Zipolite... Which it's worth the whole trip from Europe. The rooms are great, the villa is built with the perfect wild-tropical style and the people are very helpful and friendly. There's the possibility to eat nice meals and drinks... Giuliana...

I stayed here for 8 nights and was the only guest for most of the week. The manager was very friendly and helpful. He even removed a gigantic grass hopper from my room!

We were placed here by the management at La Loma Linda property which was hosting a yoga retreat. La Loma Linda was filled, so they have a cooperative agreement with the VE owner for accommodations. This is an older property but is basically well-kept, clean, and tidy. The other reviews about the roosters, barking dogs, and crying babies are accurate....
