When you first arrive at the Camino Real Oaxaca you feel confident that you're perfectly located for the days to follow, however if you decide to drive then be aware that the hotel does not offer any parking. We were given a list of car parks nearby and the additional cost is approximately $MX160 daily. The hotel reception were quick to recommend the most expensive site.

Rooms are small with some looking out onto the road so be sure to request a room that looks out to the interior of the property. Water is provided on the first night, but after that you have to pay which for a 5 star hotel is truly bad form. Their website seduces you with a free cocktail hour, but this only applies to the higher rated rooms. Please note our room was not at a discounted rate.

The pool area is pretty, but be warned, the water is NOT heated! No action was taken when we asked the staff about the extremely cold temperature of the water. It was impossible to relax due to repair work and conference set up that was happening in the large banquet room that sits adjacent to the pool area. Drilling, hammering and loud conversation commenced from 10am.

Check with reception if they have any scheduled conferences or weddings during your preferred hotel dates. On our final morning (Saturday) we woke up to the noise of marque preparations that were being set up literally outside of our room on the lawn. Nothing was mentioned from the front desk at the time of booking or as a courtesy the night before.

The breakfast has enough choice and the staff really do ensure the guest has everything they may need. However, on our last morning we were rushed through our breakfast in order to accommodate a large party of guests. DO NOT opt for the bed and breakfast rate as it is cheaper to add on breakfast once you're at the hotel. BTW- take a sweater to breakfast as ALL tables sit in the shade which makes it very cold.

There are plenty of charming hotels in Oaxaca and my advise would be to look elsewhere, you can always take the free tour of the Camino Real if you are interested in the history of this old convent. Surely it's better to save your money and spend it enjoying yourself in the Centro Historico with all the Oaxacan delights it has offer?

Room Tip: Ask for an interior room to avoid looking out onto the street.

It´s just the right place in every sense. The location, the ambience, the staff, the setting, the food (specially breakfast). Maybe a little bit expensive but definitely worth it. Missed a parking facility but there are several within 2 blocks and parking worked ok.

Room Tip: I guess the rooms that face the courtyard are quieter than those facing the street and the setting is sublime. It seems there are rooms though without a real outside view facing corridors.

First the good:
Nice clean hotel in a great area. The hotel itself is an old covenant and is very beautiful and historic. The service is decent for worldwide standards and average for Mexico. the staff have the fear of god in their eyes and permanently plastic smiles as if they would be beaten if they don't smile.

Rooms:
Rooms are very nice but noisy if they put you next to the street

The Rub:
If you are charging $150+ a night in a town where I can get a perfectly good room for $35 then for Christ's sake don't try to charge me $5 for a $.50 water bottle. SHADY!!!! The put a bottle of water on your sink so you think it is complimentary and then they ding you $5.49 for it when you check out.

If you charge $21 for a breakfast in a town where for $2 I can get a great meal then please provide me some value and not a lackluster overpriced buffet.

If you charge me $5.41 for a coffee, then please have it be local and organic Oxaccan coffee and NOT FOLGERS CRYSTALS! Tourists are not stupid. We know what good food and coffee tastes like and this is not it. If you are going to rip us off with high prices then please at least give us something quality in return.

We love this hotel. We stayed there a couple of years ago, and decided to do so again. We were not disappointed. Beautiful, charming property. Clean, comfortable rooms. (We do get the inside rooms.) The pool is lovely, and the location is terrific. It is pricey compared to other Oaxaca hotels, so we spend half our time here, and half at the Holiday Inn, which is also nice, though without the charm and location. We will go back to both!

Had a wonderful time in Oax. The people are genuinely nice and there's so much history and delicious food. My husband and I stayed in the Camino Real and had a very good experience. Our room was exactly how I imagined it the photos on the web don't lie. The staff is super nice and the bed is very comfortable. Room service was very nice we stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed our stayed. The location is perfect we could walk to downtown and enjoy the setting of this beautiful town. We are already planning our next trip to Oax.
