“close to the surf and a relaxing good time”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

we loved our huge room with ktichen and view of the ocean. A lot for the price...and a great and plentiful breakfast with interesting people from all over the world.
yes, you can get a place for half the price and less than half the comfort and you can get a place with greater service and nicer accomodations at more than twice the price....but you would miss out on the great company of the very interesting people staying here and the great proximity to everything Puerto has to offer....a few steps to the beach and restaurants. In summary...a great value!

Room Tip: all rooms are great but pay the extra and get the penthouse...worth it.

My wife and I stayed here back in September.
I don't get any pleasure from writing this negative review because I think the owner Paul is basically a decent and interesting guy.... but here goes.

The staff doesn't speak English and Paul is quite elderly and sleeps in the afternoon. So when we arrived (at the end of a dirt alley to the shabby courtyard... no reception area at all) in the blazing heat and humidity we insisted on speaking to him before being brought to our room. He eventually emerged from his slumber in a stained shirt that it turned out he wore every day.

We were creeped out by the disrepair and disorganization but decided not to bail after the fairly pleasant breakfast with Paul the first morning. Ultimately this was a mistake since our camcorder and some articles of clothing were stolen out of our room the day before we left. In a subsequent e-mail exchange he told us he had terminated an employee because of the theft and offered to cover our losses. When I told him how much they were we never heard back.

Anyway, If you want to have some interesting conversation about Mexican history, stop by the Tabachin for breakfast one morning... it's a trip... and the breakfast is good (if not quite as mindblowing as Paul likes to think). I certainly don't recommend staying here though.

I had heard about Paul's place for years from a close friend. He went on and on about it so I finally decided to go. Well, he was right about Studio Tabachin.
The rooms are Mexican tiled, include kitchens, cable TV, air conditioning, cleaned daily and have firm beds.
The breakfasts (which are included with your room) are the best meals I have
had in Mexico..period. I don't know how the cooks do it but they pull off gourmet
breakfasts both Mexican and American. (Paul has a farm where he grows his own
coffee, cocoa, fruit, etc.) The guests are quite interesting and many of them have
been coming here for years. Everyone has breakfast together at long tables so
one really has a chance to meet new people from all over the world. We were
two minutes from the beach and there were plenty of places to pull up lounge
chairs and just enjoy. There is much in nature to enjoy and there are some very
good restaurants in the area, especially fresh fish. This is a unique travel experience that I recommend highly for those of you that don't want to do the
big Mexican resorts.

Room Tip: Book early. This place fills up during the season.

The most telling thing about our recent six day stay at the Hotel Tabachin was that most of the other guests were repeat visitors, one couple having returned for 15 years in a row. Their loyalty is completely understandable. The location is excellent, the rooms spacious and immaculate, and the host (an American expatriate) engaging and informed. On top of that, the price is right. Oh, and the breakfasts are wonderful, with lots of choices – if you want something not on the menu, they'll do that too. Puerto Escondido is changing as Mexico invests in its tourism industry, but today it is still a charming beach town, and the Tabachin is just the place to relax and enjoy it.

Truly a bed and breakfast. This is an amazing place to stay. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Air conditioning is a blessing. The staff is friendly and always goes above and beyond. The breakfast can be customized for your tastes and are amazing. I'm still missing the bacon. Don't pass up your opportunity for a comfortable, quaint and relaxing vacation.

HOTEL TABACHIN is a fine hotel woth the pesos .. Great desayunos prepared in timely manner. Big rooms with nice art and history . Good service and Paul is a wealth of history
and conversation. Hotel is close to zicetela action but far enough away to get some decent
sleep.

Staying at Studio Tabachin is the best reward after a long winding trip from Oaxaca City to Puerto Escondido. The view from the penthouse room is breathtaking. The host, Paul, and his staff are very kind and helpful. There are more than ten different selections for breakfast. There's art everywhere in Tabachin. It is the most enjoyable lodging experience ever. Don't miss it for a lap pool.
