One can only assume from other more positive reviews that this hotel has seen better days. The gardens are magnificent and well cared for and if the same level of maintenance had gone into the hotel , perhaps it would be better. It is a sad, dull, dingy place. Our room was large, I believe they called it de luxe,... More

This hotel is really a very special, sweet private oasis in a quiet, northern section of Oaxaca city. The beautiful gardens are what will first impress you, sizeable and gorgeously maintained garden with pool, breakfast patio, and even an authentic temazcal on the grounds. Once you settle in, you will start to really appreciate the more subtle touches to this... More

We spent two weeks of 2013 Holiday Season in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere in San Felipe del Agua, Oaxaca, Mexico and greatly enjoyed the hospitality offered by the owners and the staff of Hotel Hacienda Los Laureles.

We stayed two nights in this serene boutique hotel safely away from the hustle and bustle of central Oaxaca. Surrounded by lush gardens, excellent service, warm hospitality and amazing food it was a pleasure to relax and enjoy a respite from many days of travel. Highly recommend you experience the luxury it offers at a reasonable price. John D

To be avoided The name Mexican Hacienda conjures an image of old world, elegant, solid luxury. This is not by any means applicable to Hacienda los Laureles de Oaxaca, which is nothing but a simple and -very distant from the centre- suburban house with a pretentious name. The reception brings memories of notary public office. There is no guest room... More
