This Hotel is a little bit far away from de city, but is beautiful, the rooms are decorated in Antique Style but with all the modernity possible, the gardens are a dream come true, the kitchen is excellent and the service people are the best, we spend our vacations here and definitely I want to come back!!!

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.

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
