The Flor de Maria is the friendliest, most comfortable place to stay in Puerto Escondido, perhaps in all of Mexico! After seeing a picture of it 18 years ago, I decided to pay a visit and fell in love with the place immediately. It's why I've been back almost every year since, and why most of the other guests in...

We are return customers for over a decade to our dear Hotel Flor de Maria. Joanne and Paul are gracious hosts who make us feel as though we are their family. Our visit always begins with a delicious meal at the hotel restaurant that features fresh, creative cuisine and attentive service. We spend afternoons on the rooftop terrace where there...

We enjoyed every minute of our four-night stay at Flor de Maria in March 2017. The room was nice and clean and charming with painted doors and decor. The rooms are on two levels facing a central atrium and all floors are rustic tile. I don't think there are ocean views from any rooms, but There is a top floor...

The owners run the hotel and are very helpful and want to ensure you have a great dining experience. Our group of 4 dined there twice and both times the food was great. We had fish both times and it was very fresh and delicious.They also had a good selection of wine. They both spoke English.

My friend and I recently enjoyed a few lovely days at Hote Flor de Maria. From the moment I made the reservation until they gave me a hug good-bye, Joanne and Paul were extremely responsive and accommodating and unfailingly polite and helpful. Their staff, all of whom have been with them for many years, are similarly friendly, helpful, and polite....

I hate telling people about this as I'd love to keep it to myself, but it is too good to not share. The hotel is on Marinero Beach - a good swimming beach - and is just a short walk from it. The rooms are large with hot water, safety boxes, good beds, ceiling fans and bathrooms. There is a...

I had an amazing vacation in Puerto Escondido, mostly thanks to the hosts, Joanne and Paul. I was meeting a cousin who had friends in Pto Escondido and she was staying elsewhere. I needed a hotel close to the Marinero beach and to Sabor a Mar since I had knee problems. Flor de Maria was close to a perfect choice....

Spent 10 days at this property, we had a corner unit on the main floor, large room, view of the ocean, quiet and comfortable. The owners were a lot of fun, the food was fabulous and everything was very clean. Highly recommended, felt safe and welcome.

Just back from a reunion with my favourite hoteliers and their little paradise in Puerto Escondido. Joanne and Paul never disappoint. The hotel is a gem: beautiful, quiet, clean, with an excellent restaurant, just steps from the beach. The staff are like family and the many guests who come back every year are now an eclectic circle of new friends....
