About the property

Apartments, 1 & 2 Bedrooms, (1-5 guests), with full kitchens, shared pool, yoga

Casamar is a collection of 15 uniquely designed suites. From a cozy, intimate couples’ rooftop suite to a spacious family studio apartment, each suite is completely and uniquely styled in the Mexican spirit, by local artists with traditional hand-crafted tile, hand-loomed cotton décor and artisan wooden objects.

Just 10 mins from the Puerto Escondido airport and a one-minute walk from Zicatela beach, Casamar is a tranquil place set in closed, luscious gardens with high palm trees. Enjoy our cool pool, terraces with lounge chairs and garden hamacs. Stroll to the beach for a swim or a long walk.

All suites are independent and furnished and include: wifi, fully equipped kitchen, private bath, hot water, a patio area, daily housekeeping except on Sundays, fans and A/C upon request (with an extra fee).

Our facilities in the common area include a pool with terrace and lounge chairs, a bbq grill, a lounge area with satellite t.v., and a lending library. Wifi is available throughout. We have private parking, daily housekeeping, and refreshments for purchase as well as complimentary yoga classes and dance and aerobics classes.

Beyond Casamar, the area offers an array of activities from Spanish lessons to hiking to waterfalls. We are happy to assist you at the front desk in making arrangements. The center of Puerto Escondido and the market are a 5-minute taxi ride away.

Weekly and monthly rates available.

About Reception Desk

Rosalie Hornblower and Willits Sawyer, proprietors, designed Casamar as a place to come together with family and friends. Sharing the beautiful space to simply connect without the everyday distractions of life, to simply be together and appreciate each other and our stretch of coast.

Reception Desk purchased this hotel in 2005

Why Reception Desk chose Oaxaca

We fell in love with this off-the-beaten path paradise: a place where Old Mexico still delivers fresh handmade tortillas and where the sound of the surf will relax and reinvigorate you.

What makes this hotel unique

Hotel Casamar Suites is located steps away from La Punta, a surfer's paradise and is close to numerous beaches. You can enjoy water sports of all kinds, sightseeing in the hills, festivals in the town, shopping for hand made crafts, and more. Our beautiful villa features lush gardens, hand-laid Talavera tile, wood carvings, original artwork, and handwoven bedspreads. Within the compound there are many common areas for relaxing. Sit poolside with a drink, look out over the ocean from our terrace or join us for a yoga class.

Easily the best mid range hotel in all of Puerto Escondido

  • 5 of 5

Casamar Suites: a special boutique hotel located in “La Punta” Puerto Escondido, Mexico. At Casamar, one can enjoy peaceful accommodation while being close to downtown Puerto Escondido.

During a recent two month, solo vacation to Puerto Escondido this spring, I stayed at five different hotels. Having returned to Puerto Escondido for a second visit this year, Casamar Suites was easily the place and location that I chose to make home.

The list of reasons is extensive. Here are just a few:

Price:

• Easily the very best mid range hotel in all of Puerto Escondido.

• Seasonal as well as generous discounts to returning guests. (This was a nice surprise!)

Location:

• A peaceful and very secure setting close to the charming beach, shops and restaurants of La Punta – in my opinion, the most beautiful section of Zicatela beach.(more people are discovering this…)

• Convenient / quick transportation to “downtown” Zicatela & Puerto Escondido in three ways: taxi (50 pesos return), collectivo (10 pesos return) or a pleasant 20-25 minute beach walk. (I walk this part of the beach once a week for sunset & dinner & taxi back home.)

• Excellent year round surfing, swimming at La Punta - with a lifeguard tower.

Atmosphere:

• A mature, family environment with clean, smoke free rooms. (great for solo guests too!)

• Staff/owners who understand what “service” really means.

• English and Spanish are spoken & every effort is made to introduce guests to their new neighbourhood including the arrangement of tours, excursions & services. (Want to surf? Just ask! Spanish lessons, massage, horse back ride? Arranged for you!)

• The manager lives on site, providing additional security & assistance whenever needed.

• All suites have fully equipped kitchens, private bathrooms & patios. Tasteful décor & authentic Mexican Talavera tile add to the charm & comfort of this wonderful hotel.

Complimentary activities, events & amenities: These are offered / available onsite throughout the week to all Casamar guests including:

• Excellent yoga, aerobic and dance classes

• beautiful swimming pool in a courtyard setting: palm trees, abundant flowers, butterflies, hammocks & fountain

• weekly evening poolside BBQ

• owner/ manager hosted sunset gathering on ocean lookout terrace

• Wi-Fi

• Recreation / Family Room with satellite TV, library & ping pong

• Maid service – 6 days/week

Other:

• Laundry service available, condiments for cooking, pool toys.

• Boogie boards, fins, snorke
