Studios Tabachin del Puerto
Ranked #21 of 47 Hotels in Puerto Escondido
Reviewed August 6, 2011

It was one of the best hotels in four weeks of mexico. The price was cheeper than Lonely planet said and the rooms are very beautiful and clean. They rooms have kitchen, cable-TV, fans, saves, air conditioning and a good service. The Hotel is very quiet - not so busy like the "Surfer-Hotels". The breakfast ist the best. You can have whatever you want - and it is very huge! The most of the food is selfmade (Juice, yoghurt, cereals, fruits.......) and the owner is very lovely and gives you a lot of tips.
It is realy a nice place!!!
ps: You can use the pool from the other Hotel ten meters down the street.

The staff was like family. Very helpful, service was wonderful! Paul, the owner spoke English perfectly, which felt so comfortable after travelling Mexico for the previous month and not being able to communicate well. At first sight, Tabachin seems a bit older,not a ritzy hotel, but very clean and again, I can't say it enough the service, family atmosphere and food are superb . Perfect location as well, 3 minute walk from beach, but very quiet at night. I would'nt stay anywhere else, if I were to go back.Thank-you Paul, Felix, Erik and rest of staff !!

Paul Cleaver knows how to make one feel welcome to Puerto Escondido. The room was comfortable and inviting. The breakfast --especially the coffee--was first-rate. The service was very attentive. And the conversation with Don Pablo over breakfast was interesting. Overall, a most excellent visit. Very convenient location. Very attentive staff. I would definitely return. And the price definitely was right.

Tabachín is in a great spot right between Zicatela and Marinero beaches. The rooms are eclectically decorated with tons of character, very clean and with blessed, blessed A/C (you'll want it). The owner Paul, from the US, is a class act with a really interesting background, a passion for literature (lots of good books in the rooms), and a habit of eating breakfast with you in the outdoor courtyard, chatting and giving good travel advice. Breakfast is included in the price of the room. Try the homemade oatmeal or the huitlacoche (traditional indigenous mushroom) omelet.

I highly recommend staying at el Tabachin. It is, simply, the best travel experience I have ever had! The apartment I stayed in was very big and airy, with a refreshing sea breeze and amazing views from the big, wrap-around balcony. It was perfectly clean and nicely decorated.

Paul, the owner, and his extremely charasmatic host, Felix, make you immediately at home and the breakfasts are truly the best I have ever had in Puerto Escondido!

If you have trouble sleeping in hotels, something which often is the case for me, this is the place for you! I have never slept better, not even in my own house. The relaxing sound of the waves blocked out all other noise and soon I was fast asleep.

As for the location, it couldn't be better, right where Playa Marinero meets with Zicatela. Steps away you have the modern cafes, excellent restaurants and palapa bars of Zicatela and, walking a short distance in the opposite direction, the authentic Mexican experience of Marinero and Playa Principal.

The hotel is totally safe, as is Puerto Escondido in general. Don't be scared off by what they say about Mexico in the States. I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on this kind of holiday experience!

I spent a delightful week at Tabachin. I have been travelling alone for several months in Mexico and it is important to me to feel secure. Tabachin offers comforts of home, security, and fabulous breakfasts. The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and delightfully decorated, with a small kitchen and balcony. The air conditioning was especially welcome as it can be quite warm in Puerto Escondido during the day. Paul, the owner, was knowledgeable and helpful about Puerto Escondido, and I felt that he was concerned that I was comfortable and secure. The staff were friendly and helpful as well. I would definitely go back.
