The staff is gentle, helpful, always quick to answer your questions. We were trying to conserve water and didn't want our towels washed every day. Every day the maid would decorate our towels with the most intricate, beautiful animal shapes with flowers and place them on our bed - very romantic!
I loved that the hotel only had 8 rooms looking out into an open courtyard. It was a few short blocks to El Zocalo, the main plaza where each day and night there was something "happening. What a wonderful place for singles, families, couples, young and old.
San Felipe offers tours that I recommend taking. My husband and I are not "organized tour-type of people", but these semi-private tours, hosted by Jose Maria, are fabulous. He's a well-educated Zapotec gentleman who will speak English, Spanish and Zapotec to you, whatever is your pleasure. This is actually a MUST when going to Oaxaca because you would never be able to find these little villages on your own.
The hotel is very clean, mostly very quiet (there are tiles in the rooms and the courtyard which carry noise if something is talking very loudly) and a wonderful escape from your busy days going to villages, museums, churches, marketplaces. I will stay at the San Filipe if we are ever fortunate enough to return.!
