“Everything we could ask for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2012

Vacations means Peace of Mind, and we found that here. Me and my fiance love to travel (I also love to surf). Paul (the owner) set us up with one of his beautifully decorated studio apartments. "Bargain" is an understatement, we were very fortunate to find this place while searching the web. Breakfast comes with your room, so it is so nice to share breakfast with the good company of other travelers that want to enjoy not only the waves, but the rich history of Oaxaca. Paul is an incredible host that has decades of knowledge of Mexico.
You can spot the big sign from the 200, and the balcony that gives you a view of the entire beach. Perfectly located behind Hotel Santa Fe, the Tabachin keeps it's cozy, low profile, tranquil vibe without all the "surfer dude" traffic you find at many others on the strip. Also Paul helped build the Sante Fe, so we can easily walk over and use their pools, simply after just being a patron at the Hotel's restaurant. Also with our studio having a Refrigerator and a kitchenette it is nice to be able to make your own meals too. The grocery store (Super Che) is only 10 minutes away by car.
The Tabachin is one of Puerto's last secrets...So make reservations...before a million other people read this, and your stuck somewhere else, kicking yourself, wishing you did.

Room Tip: The entire vibe of the Tabachin is rest and relax

What a pleasure to stay at Tabachin and have such a knowledgeable and gracious host as Paul Cleaver. I arrived early, was shown warm, generous hospitality and then to my spacious room on the third floor. What a view! Endless ocean, the sound of surf and a kitchenette. I could have stayed there forever. As it was I extended my five day stay by another five days. Great breakfast and because of the connection with the Hotel Santa
Fe, we could use the pool. Paul, the owner, a native English speaker knows the area well, is more than accommodating and shares his books!
Sigh....can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra and stay in the big room on the third floor.

We just spent a fabulous week at this charming and most comfortable B&B. Must say our stay was greatly enhanced by having our gracious owner/host Paul Clever there every morning at breakfast time to stimulate the conversation and give friendly advice to one and all. The other guests were equally nice and friendly which was another added advantage.We had the top floor unit with a large balcony over looking the bay and along a most beautiful beach - this too added to our stay. There was always a nice breeze which meant we did not have to use the airconditioning - ceiling fans were more than sufficient. Now the breakfasts - unlike any you will find almost anywhere. A wide variety of chioces - fresh fruit and juices, omelets and eggs any style, etc.etc.. The locals come here to enjoy the feasts and this too adds to the character and charm of the place. Overall a 5 star stay in a 5 star place. Many thanks. During our stay, we bought a condo about 1/2 an hour away and plan to spend the winters there- when we want to take a break - guess where we it will be??!!

Room Tip: If availabe, the top penthouse suite in the taller building which was the first to be built

Great, quiet location just behind the Hotel Santa Fe, approximately 1 block from the beach. The tile work in the courtyard and rooms, done by local artisans is gorgeous. We love the large studio on the 3rd floor. It has a small kitchen, wrap around balcony, great view, and a fantastic breeze all day. We never had to use the air conditioner. The Hotel Santa Fe has a pool that is available to guests of the Tabachin and they have a wonderful restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Paul, the owner and host is this great guy! Sweet, funny, witty and knowledgeable with lots of great stories and recommendations.

Amazing breakfasts are included and Paul keeps you company at breakfast at the communal table. The food is incredibly good. Paul has an organic farm, in another location where he grows all the produce, and coffee for the restaurant. He also makes his own tofu, breads, preserves, sauces, salsas. They specialize in traditional Mexican dishes and vegan dishes. I would eat all my meals there, but they only serve breakfast.

In my opinion, it's the best deal in Puerto Escondido.

Room Tip: 3rd floor large studio, view, breeze, balcony

Fantastic accommodation! the setting could not have been any better a minutes walk to beaches and bars.

Paul was an exceptional host and very knowledgable and hospitable.

All of the staff working for Paul were extremely friendly and I could not have been made to feel more welcome.

100/100!

Before arrival, we were guaranteed a spacious room in a charmy hotel with ocean view. On arrival
- on the dark and quiet damaged alley,
- there was construction work in progress in the neighbour building,
- we were met by a women, who didn't know about our arrival, even if we were the only ones checking-in, and
- after a while, the very sleepy owner showed us the room.
- It was spacious, but with worn out furnishings,
- not charmy, but ... well, old ... and
- the ocean view could be enjoyed from (the roof and) some few rooms, located on the highest floors in neighbour building, but by far not from all.
Go rather to Bungalows Zicatela, which is a very safe choice!

Tabachin Studios is the best option in Puerto Escondido. Is located on a little street that takes you to the main avenue (calle del morro) but the fact that the hotel is not located exactly in Calle del Morro makes everything more confortable because the hotel doesn't have noise.
Mr Paul (the owner) is the nicest person you'll ever meet. He'll treat everybody as a king.
The rooms are big and comfortable. The price is very affordable.Breakfasts are included and DELICIOUS!
Pets are welcome too! =)
