Fodor's Review

Spanish for "hidden," Escondida is a pristine, luxe Mexican-style villa. The small resort and spa is the creation of property host Christy Carnes and Texas television personality Bob Philips. In their stately manor, each guest room is outfitted with elegant hardwood and iron furniture and subtle Mexican tile accents. Some rooms include gas fireplaces. Don't leave without a trip to the spa—you won't be sorry!
