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

A beautiful place to call your Oaxacan home. Great location, spacious rooms with gorgeous decor, a comfy bed & lovely peaceful rooftop. Your host Maria is a beautiful soul, who treats her guests like friends. Most definitely the place I will return to for future visits to Oaxaca.

We stayed for 6 nights at the end of May, and we couldn't have asked for a more enchanting B&B. The breakfasts were gourmet, the service was impeccable and the location was perfect for getting around the city. There is a very comfortable community living room for watching tv, getting coffee or a tequila that was very convenient. We stayed... More

El Diablo y La Sandia is just what you hope for in a B and B. We stayed 5 nights in March and found it to be in a good central location, large clean rooms (we had Luna, up stairs), great bed, and a different well prepared breakfast every morning. Some days we were out early and the staff had... More
