Lonely Planet review
This B&B is as quaintly stylish as its name (‘The Devil and the Watermelon’) and has a welcoming atmosphere. A tasty Oaxacan breakfast emerges daily from the big kitchen range, and the five rooms are spotlessly clean with comfy beds and pretty, very original Oaxacan artesanías . Four are set around a light-filled courtyard, the other sits beside the roof terrace.
There’s a cozy sitting room with drinks and snacks available, and the kitchen is available for guests to use after breakfast.
Our independent authors have visited El Diablo y la Sandia and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Oaxaca City.
