First time in Mexico and we couldn’t have asked for a better home away from home! From start to finish we were made to feel welcome, lost ourselves in a tropical paradise and will certainly be back… A big thank you to all the staff but a major shout out to Juan and Ixchel!

We loved our stay at this resort. A slice of paradise. We had a beautiful ocean view Room, wonderful food and extremely friendly service. We felt very relaxed and pampered. We will be back same time next year!

Actually, other than being robbed it was a good time - and a beautiful spot. Unfortunately being robbed from our room safe the first night there (hadn't been in Mexico 12 hours) ruined the rest of the experience. We'll never return, nor will we return to Mexico. As an aside, I did let the Manager know - absolutely nothing done....

Hello Anne Thank you very much for taking your time for sharing your thoughts and for your kind comments about our staff. We are very sorry about the incident, even though this is the first report we have in more than 10 years, we take it very seriously. During your stay we reviewed the cameras and could not see anyone...

Can't say enough about how great this place is! Setting is gorgeous, rooms simple but fabulous, staff the absolute best and the food is awesome. The ocean beach is a little rocky and surf big enough when I was there that you need to be a good swimmer to play in the waves but the pool is beautiful. I will...

This is a wonderful place, almost beyond description. If you were like us, we didn't want a Miami-like high-rise hotel in the sprawl of Puerto Vallarta. You are probably looking at Sayulita as a smaller and more 'authentic' (ie, old Mexico) option; you're wondering if you should stay IN Sayulita itself, (where the action is??) or a few miles away,...

While the location is just remote enough to not be able to walk into town and tides are really to dangerous for a ocean dip we loved everything about this place, staff is a ten in our books, they were young and enthusiastic and really made our holiday special

The Guest House was a truly memorable place to stay. Great privacy with an amazing view of the ocean. The staff was top notch and always helpful when ever i had a question or need. Ive been telling all my friends about my stay and would recommend Play Escondida to everyone. Until next time I love you Sayulita. Justin

After looking at a ton of different options for a long awaited vacation, Tulum, Caribbean islands, a wedding invitation for Sayulita prompted me to check out the area. I looked on Trip Advisor and noticed Playa Escondida and it's amazing reviews and I continued to look at other options in the area. But I kept coming back to Playa Escondida,...

We stayed at Playa Escondida several years ago when we had an extra night before moving in to our villa in Sayulita. We now return each year for dinner/lunch so we can enjoy this magical place. We would like to stay there again but travel with a service dog which is not permitted. This is truly a unique 5* resort...

This is a place to relax and just be. Everything is super clean. We always felt safe. The great staff made sure everything was taken care of and always available for questions. The food is really good. We had massages that were excellent. It was nice to hear the ocean while having one. The pools are fun. A quiet retreat...
