Most recent review:

What I liked:

The setting is stunning - completely isolated, down a dirt track past an organic farm with mango trees and goats. The photos on the website do not do justice to the public areas, they are very stylish.

We really enjoyed the service, the staff seemed friendly and genuine, never intrusive. I had some hesitations about the food before our trip since we did not have a car or the option to eat elsewhere so was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food offerings.

The atmosphere is incredibly laid back and relaxing - there is not much to do except swing in a hammock looking out at the waves but that is exactly what we wanted. We had a wonderful stay.

What the hotel could do better:

I would recommend this hotel without hesitation. The only thing I can think of to improve is that on our first evening some complimentary drinking water in our room would have been good - on our second night the turndown service left us a jug of water which was much appreciated.

77 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

This is why, no matter how much we love the one-offs, the independents, we’d never be able to come out against chain hotels. You want to know, for example, when Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha open a new hotel — so you follow the Habita banner wherever it goes. It’s hard to imagine you’d be disappointed, especially when the results include the likes of Hotel Escondido, a minimal-rustic beachfront boutique hotel on Oaxaca’s Pacific coast.

For a long time they were known for buzzing city boutiques, and for good reason. But recent years have seen a flexing of Habita’s outdoor muscles, to extremely satisfying ends. Escondido is no less visually appealing than any of its city cousins, nor is it much less social — though of course the relative isolation breeds a certain intimacy. And the surfing and kayaking, needless to say, are infinitely better than they would be in Mexico City — because they exist at all, for one, but also because this stretch of the coast is famously well suited to such pursuits.

It’s essentially “barefoot luxe” at its apex, a sort of impossibly stylish version of beach-bum living, its sixteen bungalows smallish and spare but perfectly formed. The restaurant serves can’t-miss local seafood, the bar shows off the Habita talent for hospitality, and the pool lounge mixes modern design with the most primitive of elements, to the greatest possible effect.

Please note: Hotel Escondido does not accept guests under the age of 16.

How to get there:

Hotel Escondido is located 65 miles (about a 90-minute drive) from Huatulco International Airport (HUX), or 19 miles (about a 30-minute drive) from Puerto Escondido Airport (PXM).
