“Absolutely superb in every respect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Everything about Casa Pan de Miel is superb. We happened across it through a review in the Lonely Planet - which said that it was 'designed with relaxation in mind'. It completely undersold it. When we arrived, the cab driver asked if he could go and look at the view - it was that stunning. Perched on top of the cliff, with beautiful views, and an infinity pool spilling over the edge, at the height of the birds wheeling about. We arrived intending to stay for 2 nights, and within about half an hour had decided to cancel other plans and stay for 5 nights - and would have stayed for longer if we could, but we were flying back to London. The breakfasts were gorgeous, sitting under the palapa, with everything homemade from the bread to the jam. The beach is reached going down some steps. I could go on and on, but would just recommend that you go.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

On arriving, we were dumbstruck by the view. The cab (arranged by the hotel at a substantial discount) pulled down an impossibly steep driveway. Almost before we stepped out of the car, it seemed our luggage had been taken to our room and a beverage was in hand. This exemplary service turned out to be par for course.

Nothing can go wrong at Pan de Miel.

The room: sleek and spotless. Large patio with a wonderful hammock. Panoramic ocean views - from hammock, bed and even from shower.

The grounds: tropically lush and meticulously maintained. The cliff-top setting means that you are eye-level with the passing pelicans and terns. We loved relaxing and reading in the pool or in the palapa.

The service: again, nothing can go wrong. Our hosts Paula and Mariana provided perfect recommendations and effortless arrangements for restaurants, massages, diving and even a Temascal (do it. Well, first google it, then do it.). Do not hesitate about sitting down for breakfast every morning. Delicious.

The location: if beach vacation is your goal, this is your place. You will kick yourself for ever thinking a cruise or all-inclusive resort was an actual vacation. Here you can relax at the hotel or walk down the private stairs to a seclude beach cove. Or another 5 minutes to the restaurants of San Agustinillo. A 15 minute walk in the other direction are more restaurants, and tons of hippies, in Mazunte.

Do not let the walks and steep trails deter you at all (though the place is not suitable for handicapped). Our favorite ploy: walk to mazunte, play on the beach, eat an amazing dinner and then, in a fit of laziness, take a $10M ($0.80USD each) back to the hotel. Perfect.

Enjoy!

Casa Pan de Miel is your best choice for a guaranteed terrific time when you are visiting Mazunte. From the moment you make your reservation until Mariana sees you off in your cab at the end of the vacation, there is not a minute that you will not feel well cared for at Casa Pan de Miel. The rooms are immaculate, the pool area is breath-taking, and there recommendations for restaurants are spot on. We will return again and again to this sleepy resort town mostly because of our wonderful experience at this extraordinary B&B.

Mazunte is an hour from the Huatulco or Escondido's airports on Mexico's safe south coast west of Oaxaca. It is a very small resort town, very simple and basic and local, which hosts a few lovely moutainside hotels above a crashing ocean with seabird rocks forming safe swimming coves. The best is Casa Pan de Miel, a garden of several well designed and appointed casitas with porches overlooking the sea below. At the resort's center is a very lightly salted (no chlorine!) infiniity pool, just the temperature to spend an entire day in staring out to sea. Behind are lawn chairs, a massage room also overlooking the ocean, and the communal dining room for food any time until 3:30 PM. In the evening taxi, walking, or your own car (make it small !) into one of three small towns with excellent local food. It is great value, meaning you'll spend less on this seaside vacation than any other you've taken for sure, and it is isolated, a place to get away. Yet a mid-day flight goes directly to Tucson to get there in the early evening. All this said, the very best part is the quality of the staff, every single one a kind, helpful, honest person, as these Old Mexico Mexicans always have been, and this is part of that still existing culture. The manager, Marianna, is the best of all, making every enquiry into her mission, and we profited with a wonderful bird-watching trip through a nearby lagoon. We'd been forewarned about a very fancy wedding next door, and it turned out that our patio gave us a balcony seat to watch it! The marital couple invited us to the dancing after dinner, which perhaps was the best defense against the music, but such a happy event, happy music, happy people, it was only for the good to over- hear it! We felt that this destination has required not only lots of good research, but also lots of luck, and that we had. I could have spent all day just wandering through the pots of flowers, and I did have a day when I barely left the pool except for crepes wtih sauteed bananas and ice cream served pool side. Not a bad thing to be said, not a single one. Perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the best view and yet some shade over their porch for the hot hours. Ask if the...

I stayed at Casa Pan de Miel for the second time and it was just as perfect as the first time. The hosts are doing the outmost to give their guests a perfect stay and they are all really sweet and wonderful. The breakfast is outstanding, the rooms are very comfortable, the view is amazing, the pool is perfect and the atmosphere makes you go into total relaxation immediately. I cannot speak highly enough about this place. There will definately be more visits to Casa Pan de Miel

Dear MsMoelleux,

Thanks a lot for your nice review.

In French there is a proverb that says ‘never 2 without 3’…means something that already occurred twice is likely to happen a third time..

Hope to see you again very soon.

This was a trip to remember! I started in Huatulco and when I asked for a recommendation for a hotel up the coast, my hosts recommended Casa Pan de Miel. What a beautiful place! It is built on a cliff with a great view and direct access down to the beach. This small boutique hotel is professionally managed and certainly conceived from a sincere understanding of what luxury, attention to detail and hospitality are about. Ann and her staff have a very loyal clientele who keep coming back year after year. Now I understand why. Her occasional dinner parties for guests and friends adds a unique social touch and showcases fantastic cuisine from the region prepared by professionally trained chefs. The accommodations are beautifully decorated with great original art from Mexico. The common areas and pool are relaxing. You will not want to miss the view of the sunrise. It is without doubt the most beautiful I have ever seen. I was there for three weeks and rarely missed one. No matter how well traveled you are, you will place this high on your list of the best places you have ever stayed.

Estimado PJMCTraveler,

Muchas gracias por tomarse el tiempo de escribir tan amable reseña. Para todo el equipo de Pan de Miel, es siempre una grata sorpresa, llena de satisfacción, saber (por escrito!) que quienes se hospedaron han vivido una experiencia plena.
Aprovecho la oportunidad para que practique su excelente español, y para agradecerle, también por escrito, la comprensión que tuvo a su llegada, donde lo sé bien, no todo fue ideal.

También me da gusto saber que disfrutó nuestras caprichosas cenas!

Le deseamos todo lo mejor, mucha salud para disfrutar en muchos más viajes,

Anne
