“Flor De Maria Bliss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2006

Stayed in the Hotel Flor de Maria Hotel in Puerto Escondido from Feb. 20 to Feb. 27, 2006. Paul and Joanne run an excellent hotel with reasonable rates. At times it seemed like "heaven on earth." Very safe; great restaurant; excellent service. Many local expats come to the restaurant for meals as Joanne is a wonderful chef. The repeat business each winter from the same people indicates the quality of this hotel. I was solo this time to meet friends and do some birding. They made me feel right at home and helped line up the primary birding guide I was trying to find. Rates very reasonable; location central; great view from the shaded top of the hotel.

Hotel Flor de Maria is a gem. Paul and Joanne couldn't be warmer hosts. The restaurant is in my opinion the best, most consistant kitchen in this town. It offers a nice variety of meat, chicken, fish and vegitarian dishes daily. Rooms (24) are comforable and clean. Staff is great. It has a pool on the rooftop as well as an pen air bar which is open from 5-9pm. A lovely courtyard as well. You can spend 3 times more for a room in this town and not get anything more than a larger towel. Please don't tell everyone about this find ,just the people you would like to see there. Thanks for a great 2weeks see you next year.

Wow - that's what we said everyday waking at this lovely hotel. We couldn't believe the service and accomodations we got for the great price. The location is convenient enough that we could be self sufficient, but the staff was friendly enough that if we needed assistance it was available. Unlike some hotels in Puerto - this one is not right in the mix of things, but is close enough to the action that you can easily walk to the beach or the market. If we are lucky enough to find ourselves in puerto again there is no doubt as to where we will stay.

This really is a fabulous hotel and priced just right. Recommended by the owner of the Hotel Las Azucenas in Oaxaca (another fabulous spot)my only regret is not being able to stay longer. The restaurant alone is worth the trip!

We did a LOT of research before taking this trip, and looked at every hotel on this list, and can say, for sure, that we made the RIGHT selection. Perfect location, wonderful staff, very accomodating...can't say enough good things. We travel a lot and would rank this as one of our favorite hotels to date. Thanks for a great vacation!!!

My wife and I just returned from a 4 night stay at Flor de Maria and there's no where else in its price range I'd recommend. In our time in the Puerto area, we had the opportunity to walk the beaches and touristy areas and Flor is in a quiet spot on a sandy road between the two major tourist areas of Zicatela and the Adoquin. Both are easy walks down the beaches on foot. Samuel at the front desk is a gem and was irreplaceable for us. Across the road from Flor is a mini mart with cheap soft drinks and beers. At the end of the road about 200 meters from Flor is the beachfront with a palapa bar and boogie board rentals for 20 pesos/hour. At the time we were there, the best boarding was at about 4:30 PM. Our room was warm in the afternoon, but cooled in the evenings. The ceiling fan helps out somewhat, but we still found it warm with it on. We were located on the first floor. Overall, we really enjoyed the quietness of the location, the cleanliness of the rooms and the access to the nearby beaches.

We just returned from a wonderful stay with Paul and Joanne at the Hotel Flor de Maria....Soft ocean breezes, Sam's most excellent cocktails on the upper deck, the best meals on the coast. We jokingly called Paul "Doctor", as we felt we had checked into a retreat for peace, quiet, swimming, reading, and happiness....hated to check out. All in all, a wonderful quiet place and an excellent bargain. Very helpful and considerate hosts...gracias!
