Having tried to book their bigger sister hotel Las Bugambillias but finding it full, we were offered the last room here, so we needed up with the smallest of the rooms. I am so glad we got here. It's a little oasis in the nicest part of town, basically staying in what was someones house with well decorated en suite rooms, shared kitchen with skylight, a different two course breakfast cooked for you each day, amazing! And a room terrace with a fire pit and views of the mountains. They were very helpful with recommendations and all the other guests were great. We couldnt have asked for more, will be back !

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!

Our stay at El Secreto exceeded all our expectations! Conveniently located from all the major sites, El Secreto is a relaxing oasis after a full day of site-seeing and eating. El Secreto is a three bedroom B&B and has a beautiful rooftop deck with a fire pit and plenty of lighting to relax through the evening. The tasteful décor adds to the elegance to El Secreto. The staff is a major part in making El Secreto so charming. They are friendly and helpful. Each morning they cooked up a gourmet breakfast and served fresh made coffee and juice. Do consider staying at El Secreto when you visit Oaxaca. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed at this wonderful B & B during the week of Dia De Los Muertos. The service was warm, sincere, and just all around wonderful. If you are looking for a quiet and serene spot, this is it. El Secreto is walking distance to the center of town, as well as Santo Domingo, and the main Avenue that takes you to the Zocalo. The staff is always ready for you, and it was so nice to wake up each morning to a super tasty breakfast each morning. (I sure do miss those breakfasts!) I will stay here again.

We stayed at El Secreto this past weekend and had an excellent time. Valentina, Ceci, and Juan prepared a great breakfast and helped us out with any questions we had.

Highly recommended and located right at the center of Oaxaca.

El Secreto is truly a little secret hide-away in Oaxaca. The perfect location made it easy to get to attractions, markets, the Zocalo, many local shops and restaurants within an easy walk. The host, Amelia and her family and excellent staff made us feel welcome. The breakfasts, which we had at Bugambilias, were beautifully presented using fresh ingredients and delicious. Everything is clean and well maintained. Purified water is used and provided so we felt totally safe and comfortable. We loved being the only guests in all three rooms, having the house to ourselves just like a "home away from home". The rooftop terrace had a great view and was a wonderful place for day or night gatherings and relaxing. The only suggestion I have is to clean the huge rain shower heads so that the water comes out equally through all the little holes, which are currently clogged. We loved our time there and look forward to coming back.
