I stayed at Golindrinas for a week while I explored the historic zone and surrounding villages of Oaxaca, Mx. This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. Owned and run by the same family for many years, they created it out of two large adjoining estates. The entrance gives no hint of the profusion of green and flowering plants that fill over 100 large antique planters. Open to the sky, a network of paths connect former casitas of the estate. Each of 27 rooms has a comfortable design without being too elegant to be able to relax. There are little spaces and niches all over the place offering quiet spaces to read or visit with other guests. The breakfast area is the meeting place, and the variety and quality of the food are exceptional. I spoke with many guests there who have stayed there annually for decades. Another obvious characteristic of this charming hotel is the quality of the friendly and helpful staff. Office workers are bi-lingual and they all act like a big happy family.The tiny manager/partner Carmen is a real delight as well. I will always stay at Hotel Golindrinas when I am in Oaxaca.
