I've visited Oaxaca 4 times in the last 6 years. I'm familiar with the city and I've stayed in all sorts of accomodations, from fancy establishments, such as the Quinta Real hotel, to low-key house rentals, the sort you find at Airbnb; but my stay at el Diablo y la Sandia has been the most memorable. The hotel is extremely... More

My wife and I had a wonderful week-long stay at La Sandia y El Diablo in Oaxaca. The location is perfect and within walking distance to everything. We did not see the other rooms but the room we stayed in was very spacious with private bath. Everyday, delicious breakfasts were prepared by the staff which we enjoyed in a large... More

El Diablo y La Sandia is a beautiful bed and breakfast serving gourmet breakfasts with a colorful flourish. The rooms reflect the colorful textiles of Oaxaca. The staff keep the B&B immaculate. The staff go out of their way to be helpful when there are special needs.

This B&B is a delight: quiet yet close to the Zocolo, informal and friendly. The rooms surround a courtyard where breakfast is served - and what a breakfast! We stayed 4 nights and had different food each time. The staff are helpful and friendly and Maria is both charming and full of information. The rooms are clean and comfortable with... More

We loved El Diablo y La Sandia. The rooms were comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent and the decorative way the table in the central courtyard was set each day was very attractive. We enjoyed talking with other tourists over breakfast and enjoying a glass of wine on the rooftop patio.The location is close enough to the centre to walk but far... More

This is a small hacienda style B and B a few blocks from the Zocalo, Santo Domingo and most tourist spots in the centre of the old town. There are several good restaurants within walking distance, including a small wine and tapas bar called Tastavin that we particularly enjoyed. Maria was extremely helpful recommending restaurants and sites to see. The... More

My wife and I usually go to one place and stay for at least a week. We had not been to Mexico but Oaxaca was tops on our list because of its food, culture and ethnic diversity. Anyone with any doubts about Oaxaca should just go for at least a week. I would easily rank the city as equal of... More

Our first trip to Oaxaca was a great success and Maria and her staff were no small part of it. Starting with a hot shower and a traditional breakfast each morning we were able to set out with suggestions for sites to see, markets to explore, and restaurants to visit. She helped us make contact with dependable and knowledgeable drivers... More

Maria was a great host, who went above and beyond to let us check in very early after an overnight bus ride. Great advice on local dining and activities. Lovely breakfasts in a social atmosphere around a huge courtyard table with other guests. Nice rooms with comfortable beds, and good hot showers. Would happily stay here again!

We stayed at this delightful B and B for a week in mid December. We had a wonderful time, and felt so lucky that we were able to get a reservation, Maria is a terrific host, she thinks of everything, a detailed map when you arrive, restaurant recommendations, attractive rooms, spotlessly clean, beautiful folk art decorations and every morning a...
