We spent 4 weeks in Mexico and we are still talking about the food we had there ! I highly recommend this B&B to make... More

We had an excellent experience at this hotel. Very clean, excellent service and hospitality. The location is perfect, very close to the center (you can go walking). Beautiful decoration, parking lot just across the street. Good breakfast (included) and recommendations for tourists made by Maria (The owner) I will definitely come back.

El Diablo y la Sandia was an absolutely wonderful B&B experience. The owner, Maria, was extremely accommodating, the lodging was cute and homey, and the breakfasts each day were incredible. Everything is close by, but a good enough distance away from the bustle of the Zocalo that it didn't interfere with peaceful rest and relaxation. An awesome place that I'd... More

El Diablo y la Sandía B&B was one of the best things of my trip to Oaxaca. María is a great host that makes youu feel at home while on holidays. The bedrooms, the kitchen, the common areas are all made to make you feel at some friend's beautiful house. Breakfasts are delicious and healthy, her jams are reallly good,... More

We stayed at El Diablo y la Sandia and it was the best choice. The breakfasts are superb, the place is quiet, close to zocalo but not so in the middle to suffer the noise and hectic streets. The place is very clean, and the best part the pillows are not made of rock! Soft as a…pillow! The hostess, Maria,... More

El Diablo y La Sandia is the perfect home for a journey to Oaxaca. There were excellent logistical elements like a central location, great communication with the hosts, easy check-in/out, etc., but all of those can be found at a well-run hotel. What makes this place special are the careful, unique touches: gorgeous colors and decor, friendly staff members, interesting... More

El Diablo y la Sandia is in the heart of beautiful Oaxaca City. Only a 10 minute walk to the zocalo and Santo Domingo cathedral. It is cozy and comfortable, with delicious breakfasts and a fine selection mezcal! Maria is a wonderful host, very helpful and generous. We were very grateful to have stayed at her house and will definitely... More

I stayed at el Diablo y la Sandia for a week in June 2014. The B&B is charming, spotless, and very quiet, despite being in the heart of Oaxaca City (which is noisy, like all cities). The open kitchen and living room made it feel like I was arriving back "home" each evening after a long day out. I was... More
