Hotel Aldea del Bazar3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I had been to this property 25 yrs ago and was very impressed. Our recent visit was pleasant. The grounds are very lovely but the property is older. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing property, this is a good one. There is a beach club Coco's close by and it is very nice and has a lovely ocean view. However, this property is located on the outskirts of town. Zicotela Beach is at the opposite side of town. It's where the major surfing competitions are held in May and November, night life and entertainment.
I have so many things to say about this place, I'll start with the positive. Is absolutely beautiful. We got our wed pic taken there and even the photographer loved the view of the hotel. But, it has no amenities, they charge you for ice. 25 pesos a pitcher. The bag with 20 kilos of ice from store is 15 pesos. If you want to take drinks to pool you cant. They charge you for opening a bottle of beer, wine, or any kind of drink. If you are ok with no fridge, ice machine, coffee maker, and you dont mind having an extra bed in your room, this is your place. And I will say this, this hotel is designed to experience the Puerto Escondido living, surrounded by beauty and quietness. My husband and I loved it, we will definitely be back, even thoug there is no special note, wine, or anything for people that they are staying there on their honey moon. The hotel is clean, beautiful, quiet and every single person on their staff has a warm smile on their face. Thank you Aldea del Bazar, staying at your place build forever memories for my husband and I.
The hotel is in a nice residencial area of Puerto Escondido. You can enjoy beautiful sunsets from your room (if west oriented) and from the garden and the pool. The rooms are quite spacious and the white color dominates on everything. Two comfortable double beds sit in each room. The pool is very large and nice. Everything is shining clean but a little more maintenance would surely offer more crystal clear waters. Just one step more... Service is good and everybody are very kind. Very nice restaurant. The price paid was absolutely acceptable. No stores in the premises, but taxis cost really cheap, something like 2 dollars per trip. The beach is at walking distance at the bottom of the slope. Of course going down is easier than returning up. But it is absolutely worth. All the best beaches of Puerto Escondido are at the bottom of a slope. By the way, you can also get there in 3 minutes with a cab.
You can see magnificent sunsets from the ground of the hotel. The rooms are large and quiet. The restaurant serves great shrimp tacos. But the hotel is a bit far away from the action though everything is accessible with a short taxi ride.
This is a very nice hotel. We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was clean, airy and spacious with good A/C. The pool was really fabulous with great views of the sea and it was never crowded when we were there in early February. The restaurant was by the pool and a very pleasant place to eat breakfast, which was included in our room rate. However the service at breakfast was very, very slow and not very friendly. We didn't eat in the restaurant other than breakfast so I can't comment on the food. The hotel is in a pretty good location. It's close to the bus station and I think it's not far from the airport. There's a couple of good restaurants close by (Paris Bistro is particularly good). Bacacho beach is a 5 minute walk and is really nice an quiet but you can't swim there as it's very rocky. However it's easy to get a cheap taxi to all the other great Puerto Escondido beaches. The reception staff were friendly and helpful but there were no maps and not much advice on the local area. Also, the day we left we were getting a bus in the evening but had to check out of the room by noon. We wanted to go to the beach for the day and so asked asked where we could safely leave our bags. We were told that there was nowhere to leave them and the only thing we could do was to pay extra to keep them in our room for a late check out. This would have cost us quite a lot and something I've never experienced in any other hotel or even cheap hostel - there's always somewhere safe to keep your bags. After much discussion with the manager, they finally agreed to keep the bags behind the reception desk, but I can't believe this is the first time they were asked this. Apart from this it was a nice stay and otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
Its a large piece of property with an amazing pool, helpful staff, and very relaxing atmosphere.Would stay there again! It's close to great restaurants and you can actually walk to them(less than a mile) or grab a very inexpensive cab!
This is our second time at the hotel and we would return again. It's simple and great value for money. The rooms are very large and the pool area is quiet, great for relaxing Finally view of the sunset is amazing.
One of the better Hotels in all of Puerto Escondido, but with the bonus of having A/C (many do not), and reasonable prices. As a bonus, the rooms and grounds are kept pristine and the garden is an Oasis. Hotel staff was attentive and professional with the exception of the restaurant staff (granted they work extraordinary long hours). Although the restaurant is clean and well maintained, the food was average, but service is extraordinarily slow; even with no other customers it would take an average of 10 minutes for a waiter to arrive at my table to take my morning hot tea request (stayed 9 days, ordered the same tea with a side of milk every day, and the same waiter would meander out and politely ask what I would like, as if he had never seen me before). Their Pina Coladas are suburb, however. Very popular with Mexican families so pool can get noisy, but a short walk on the grass gets you to a quiet part of the Garden, and relax on one of their hammocks. Hotel is an easy 18 minute walk to the many and varied restaurants (and laundry/misc shops) on Benito Juarez, which is your starting point for Playa Carrizalillo (Beach). BTW, the Sunset over the Pacific from the pool area is spectacular.
Maybe I had high expectations for a place that was a 3.5 star hotel. At first, I realized that our room key was actually a key (not electronic) as you might usually expect. The building itself is very old and needs to be renovated. There are no frills here, the lighting in the management photos definitely makes it look better than it is...the floor, paint on the walls and room design leaves something to be desired. There was one outlet close to the beds, another indication of an old construction, also one of the lights would flicker long after being turned off. It's very close to the airport and close to Bacocho beach. There's the 'liberation of the turtles' really close by, which is nice. The beach might be less crowded, but you can't swim in the water because of the rough tides and rocks. However, the biggest problem with this hotel is the location. Hotels.com says it's 18 minutes from Zicatela...that is a lie. It takes roughly 20 min walking to get to Playa Carizalillo - Zicatela would take at least 45 minutes if you aren't jogging, slower if you're in sandals; you won't want to walk to or from this hotel at night. The food at the restaurant is expensive (and mediocre) and your only close option is coconut cafe. I decided to cancel my stay and move to the Hotel Surf Olas Altas, which had the same price with a better location.
This is a clean and confortable place, the people is very kind, and the common places are very good The food is expensive, but you can go to downtown, or in the beach It has a great view of the ocean, I recommend hire the breakfast with the stay
