This hotel is nicely located in a funky neighbourhood near a great surfing beach lined with good, inexpensive restaurants. The rooms were very basic, but clean. That's the good news. The bad news is: the pool was NASTY, so dirty you couldn't see the bottom. The day we left a young man was cleaning the scum ring with a cleaner...

We stayed here for one night with the intention of staying for a few more but decided after one night not to leave. While the pool looked nice the room was dirty and the staff not very friendly. Wouldn't recommend this place.

Beach: "Playa Zicatela" is definitely one of the best surfing spots/beaches on earth ... for advanced surfers! Don't (!) go there for swimming or if you're a surfing beginner, but choose e.g. "La Punta", if you surfed before and want to try a fast hollow point-break wave with left direction, sandy/rock bottom and normal length or "Carrizalillo", if you're a...

We stayed during refurbishment of the hotel. There was noise from the builders in the day and the pool was dirty due to the dust and debris. Think charging 600pesos a night is abit much in the circumstances. The location is great and the room itself was lovely with a fantastic view of the ocean. When the refurb is complete...

Bungalows Zicatela, on Zicatela Beach was in a great location - a short walk across the street to the beach and central to shops and restaurants on Calle Del Morro. The rooms were air conditioned, spacious and clean but simple. The pool area is what prompted us to move here for the rest of our stay. We were at the...

The family who own the place were soooo great and friendly. The sons will help you with anything...surfing, going to the clubs, taking you to private beaches, etc. We caught a fish and gave it to the restaurant and ate dinner with the family! The location is perfect, right across from the best surfing beach and the lots of clubs...

I have stayed there twice and the rooms are clean, nice and spacious. They have 3 great pools and an outdoor jacuzzi and are located at the most fun spot in Puerto Escondido: Zicatela Beach. Many restaurants and bars around and a nice beach right across the street.

“The only drawback is that it is right on the street so if you have an ocean front room you will hear the music from the local restaurants and bars at night. I enjoyed the music so it didn´t bother me that much.”
