We stay in the same suite every time we come. Guess what, it is 32, the same as the poor review. We love the view of the pool through an overhang of foliage. Our maid, the same one probably as the poor review, has become friends, helping us with our Spanish, and on occasion bringing us delicious meals and instructing us in authentic Mexican cuisine. The staff are anything but indifferent. Go figure, but being in business for 30 years dealing with the public ( dentist) I can say there are always a few clinkers amongst the clients. I'm so glad takora was not one of my patients!!!
Location is excellent, a few blocks from Santo Domingo, the Zocalo, the Llano, Soledad. Most of the staff have at least tourist English and excellent recommendations for restaurants, markets and sights. Most of the guests are repeat travelers who make this their winter destination. Each year there are improvements, this year new refrigerators and stoves. The kitchens are appointed adequately, any deficiencies can be remedied by asking or by a trip to one of the many markets and purchasing what you need for a few us$.
We have come back now for over seven years off and on, are treated like family, and whenever we come to Oaxaca, we stay at the Parador.
