Best Luxury Hotels in Puerto Escondido ($100+)
When I say luxury, I mean luxury! Even a small surf town like Puerto Escondido has some incredible hotels to offer guests who want to indulge, relax, and pamper themselves for a few days!
And the best part?
These luxury Puerto Escondido hotels truly are not that pricey. In fact, the prices are really reasonable in comparison to everything they include and offer!
Below are my top picks for luxury-style hotels in Puerto Escondido (3 to 4 stars) ranging in location and price from about $100 USD a night all the way to over $300!
1. Posada Real Puerto Escondido
|Location:||Beachfront property at Playa Bacocho, a |
5-minute taxi from town.
|Cost:||$110 USD +|
|Why I love it:||Ideal location, reasonable price, suitable |
for families (children’s playground and
games room), and TWO outdoor pools!
I needed to start this list with one of the best of the best, and Posada Real Puerto Escondido is just that!
To start off with, the location is the perfect mix of relaxing area to hang out, accessibility to the town, and the beach! It is a beachfront hotel right at Playa Bacocho.
The beach is pristine and while it has some waves (great for beginner surfers or those on a boogie board) they aren’t too strong and swimming is still possible.
This is also the beach where there is a daily turtle release (which is definitely one of the best things to do in Puerto Escondido!)
Posada Real Puerto Escondido is also only a 5-minute taxi ride from the town center of Puerto Escondido, or 10-15 minutes from Playa Zicatela – ideally located away from the hustle and bustle but not too far either!
Secondly, they have outstanding reviews and amenities to impress including two gorgeous outdoor pools, a tennis court, a children’s playground, and a restaurant and bar!

2. Hotel Santa Fe
|Location:||Steps away from Zicatela Beach, only a |
couple blocks away from the main street
of bars and restaurants in Zicatela.
|Cost:||$105 USD +|
|Why I love it:||Beautiful garden and pool just steps from |
the beach (with beach views), large rooms,
central location, amazing staff!
Hotel Santa Fe is a smaller hotel, but that doesn’t mean it compromises on luxury! The staff here will make you feel like family and are more than willing to help with anything and everything you need!
The location is also perfect for a hotel in Puerto Escondido. It is located right on Zicatela beach with ocean views. But with that said, it is a couple of minute’s walk from the busiest area in Zicatela meaning it’s peaceful and quiet – but still close to all the action!
The rooms are also all large and decorated tastefully in a Mexican style. All rooms have air conditioning and a balcony. For the ultimate luxury getaway, be sure to book the Junior Suite with a sea view – just gorgeous!
They have an outdoor pool, a stunning garden, as well as a restaurant.
You also can’t go wrong with the price here! It’s the cheapest price out of my luxury hotel picks in Puerto Escondido.

3. Villas Carrizalillo
|Location:||On the cliff above Carrizalillo Beach. Only |
blocks away from restaurants and cafes,
own private staircase access to the beach.
|Cost:||$220 USD +|
|Why I love it:||Amazing view of the ocean and sunsets, great |
beach access, relaxed atmosphere and
friendly small-hotel vibe!
Villas Carrizalillo has the best view for sunset out of all of the hotels in Puerto Escondido! Located directly above Playa Carrizalillo (with their own staircase access) the views are simply unmatched by anywhere else around. The outdoor decks featuring hammocks as well as sea view rooms are ideal for enjoying the scenery.
It is beachfront, but you do have to climb down (and back up after) a few sets of stairs. But for me, this is not a problem as it accesses one of the best beaches for swimming, and most beautiful beach bays in the entire area, Playa Carrizalillo.
This hotel also offers a wide range of rooms in order to suit couples, families, or larger groups. Some of the rooms have huge living areas and a full kitchen, while others feature a bed and a refrigerator. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning.
There is also an outdoor pool and on-site restaurant with spectacular reviews.
Only a couple blocks away, you’ll find tons of restaurants, shops, and beautiful cafes. To me, this is absolutely one of the best Puerto Escondido hotels offering a great combination of comfort, location, and luxury!

BEST Value Hotels in Puerto Escondido (mid-range budget $40-$85)
I love hotels in this price range. To me, it where you are most likely going to get the best bang for your buck!
Well, because these Puerto Escondido hotels are still gorgeous, have air conditioning and pools, and are still going to amazing places to stay in Puerto Escondido. They are just cheaper than the luxury ones mentioned above!
To me, they are the best deal or the “best value” hotels in Puerto Escondido. Here are my top three picks!
4. Hotel Rockaway
|Location:||Across the road from Zicatela Beach (perfect |
for surfing, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife.)
|Cost:||$85 USD +|
|Why I love it:||Beautiful outdoor pool, central location, |
amazing value for money!
Hotel Rockaway is the perfect combination of luxury and excitement when it comes to Puerto Escondido hotels. This gorgeous hotel is located right in the thick of it all across the road from Zicatela Beach. This area is famous for incredible surf and tons of amazing restaurants and bars (with great nightlife!)
If you want somewhere you can walk out your front door to all the excitement that is Puerto Escondido, then this is it!
But at the same time, Hotel Rockaway is a luxurious escape.
There is an outdoor pool as well as an onsite bar and restaurant. All rooms are air-conditioned and include a lovely breakfast.
And this is one of the places I was talking about when I said comfort and a bit of luxury didn’t have to come with an outrageous price. You can score one of their double rooms for as little as $85 USD a night!

5. Casa Losodeli
|Location:||Central Puerto Escondido, near the markets. |
10-minute walk to Playa Carrizalillo or a
short taxi ride to Playa Zicatela.
|Cost:||$40+ USD for a standard double (budget |
dorms are also available)
|Why I loved it:||Friendly staff and amazing social atmosphere, |
amazingly clean, beautiful pool and garden,
and the cafe!
Ah, Casa Losodeli…where do I start with this one. I know I shouldn’t pick favorites (as all of these hotels are my favorites) but, if I had to pick just one, this would be it!
Liz and her staff are incredible. So friendly, so helpful, they keep the place incredibly clean, and they go above and beyond to make sure you’re having a great stay.
The large range of rooms available means there is something for everyone. They have budget dorms for backpackers all the way up to a one-bedroom apartment complete with a kitchen and balcony overlooking the pool (this is where we stayed recently and loved it!)
The pool is set within a gorgeous garden. There is also a cafe on-site that offers amazing breakfast and coffee at super affordable prices. And in the evenings, the bar opens up creating a nice social atmosphere among international travelers.
Casa Losedeli isn’t located on the beach but it is very conveniently located in the center of town only a couple of blocks from a large supermarket as well as the famous markets! A ten-minute walk will have you at Playa Carrizalillo and a ten-minute taxi ride will have you at Playa Zicatela.
It is an adults-only hotel meaning it isn’t suitable for families. Personally, I liked this as it made a relaxed vibe without any children running around. I could peacefully nap in a hammock whenever I wanted!
If I return to Puerto Escondido, I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

6. Villa Maria Bed and Breakfast
|Location:||Only a couple of minutes walk from Playa Bacocho. |
A 5-minute taxi to central Puerto Escondido.
|Cost:||$75 USD +|
|Why I love it:||Small bed and breakfast where the local owners |
are your hosts, huge pool, clean, and lots of
luxury details throughout to maximize guest comfort.
This bed and breakfast is run by a lovely couple, Paul and Luisa who welcome their guest like family. They are incredibly friendly and make the experience of staying at a small locally owned and operated bed and breakfast more special than that of a large hotel chain.
Rooms are large and equipped with air conditioning and mini-refrigerators. A beautiful organic breakfast is included in the nightly price.
There is a large pool on the property although you may not even need seeing as you will be located only a couple of blocks away from a beautiful and quiet beach.
Villa Maria’s location is ideal for those looking for a relaxing beach escape without being too far away from town. Only a short 5-10 minute taxi will have you in the heart of Puerto Escondido.
Families are welcome here with open arms with games and movies to keep kids busy all day long!
