“Best Stay in Oaxaca”
Reviewed March 17, 2011

I stayed a week on business in Oaxaca with my business partner and was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this hotel was. We were treated wonderfully, the gardens were spectacular, the food amazing, second to none. We utilized the spa as well, which was professional and clean. The staff was attentive, very friendly and polite and could not do enough for us. I came home relaxed and with fond memories. Can't wait for my next visit to Oaxaca! It is a very special place.

We went to Oaxaca this year for the second time and stayed this time at Hacienda Los Laureles (first time at Camino Real Oaxaca). In comparison to Camino Real, Hacienda Los Laureles has got all the charm of a nice hacienda, but not the ancient building complex and is indeed located some km away from the Zocalo – so you better get a taxi ( 50 MXN) to get to the center for dinner or lunch.

We felt wonderful at Hacienda Los Laureles, as the hotel offers quiet and peaceful comfort with excellent service and in a by far better price / value proportion than Camino Real.
The garden area and the pool (small!) area are nice and also terrace and restaurant do offer excellent choices to spend a romantic wonderful evening. If you might experience that the restaurant is closed and you do not want to go downtown, why not stay for one night at the restaurant across the street, where we actually spend two evenings with a wonderful Colombian chef, who offered us excellent food and fresh choices of menu (let him take you to his recommendations – marvelous).

Nights are peaceful and quiet at Hacienda Los Laureles – no strange noises, only birds waking you up in the morning. When you check in, make sure that your shower has sufficient pressure as in some older places it might happen that the conduction equipment do lack somehow. The nice service at the reception however helps you out in case of any issues.

We will definitely return, as the place is wonderful for a weekend in Oaxaca – make sure when you travel to get clear instructions how to arrive at the hotel as the GPS systems not necessary know the place.

Staying at Hotel Hacienda los Laureles has always been an overall great experience. This is a boutique hotel sitting on the side of San Felipe Mountains. I went there for a weeklong vacation. The food is exquisite, prepared by Chef Horacio, an expert in Oaxacan food. The rooms are cozy and housekeeping is always on top of things. Mr. Kaiser, a German national, is the owner and general manager of the hotel. He always makes sure everything is up and running.
In the morning you breathe mountain air and have breakfast next to the beautiful garden; during the day you can visit one of the several highlights available in Oaxaca; and, at night you can walk in downtown Oaxaca.
People working at the hotel are very friendly, besides the hotel typically has one or two students from overseas doing their practice there; in this trip I met Stephanie from the Netherlands who spoke perfect Spanish and English.
All in all, pros: food, service, and location. Cons: the gym, they need to buy a new one.

If you've had enough of shabby tackiness and poor service in Mexico and want to get away from the hustle, you can't do better than this beautiful, tasteful oasis of quality and calm. Wonderful food, a large quiet enclosed garden to enjoy, an excellent spa and swimming pool, comfortable rooms, and above all, friendly and intelligent service. Strongly recommended.

My wife and I have enjoyed visiting many boutique properties in Europe and South America. Hacienda Los Laureles gives the guest a feeling of unhurried living in a
manor house in colonial times.
Built around well integrated gardens of old growth trees and manicured plantings,
the hotel offers privacy when outdoors and a sparkling pool away from the main
focus of the open area.
Reyes, the hotel chef, is an accomplished and imaginative kitchen guru who presents
elegant and wonderful dishes. Fairly good wine list.

It is far away from downtown Oaxaca, and not worthwhile. Bad service, they are well intended but far away from a great hotel, I mean, if you call room service and they say they cannot bring you a club sandwich because they are "out of bread" then the more than $300 you pay are absurd. Spa is OK but just average, as well as the food. In short, if you are visiting Oaxaca, they stay downtown, the argument about being away from all the "fuzz" is nonsense.
