I stayed for a week at this charming hotel. The food was delicious, the service was excellent. Clean, charming and comfortable! Each day our rooms were cleaned and the sheets changed. The manager was very accomodating and let us pay later in the week when it was more convenient for our group. The chef gave us delicious local dishes which... More

My wife and I were part of the group of 10 who recently stayed at Don Gabino. I can echo the previous review. We loved it - clean, comfortable rooms with lots of colorful blankets on the beds. Dinner for 10 was quite a process but well worth it in terms of food quality, taste, and presentation. If you want... More

For a long time, one of my dreams was to travel to Mexico to see the place of the Monarch Butterfly migration. I am one of those people who hates organized tours, and I always make all of my own travel arrangements. When searching the internet to determine how to get to Angangueo and where to stay, I came across... More

Our main aim in coming to the area - like most - was to see the butterflies. While booking our stay at this hotel we spoke (via email) to Mario, the son of the owner, whospoke excellent English and offered to pick us up in Mexico City and guide us around the sanctuaries. We spent two days in the area... More

We just returned from an incredible experience to see the Mariposas Monarcas. Our trip started out at the Plaza Don Gabina Hotel. We heard about this hotel from friends who stayed there before and loved it. We were very pleased with their recommendation. The rooms were clean, the court yard quaint and cozy. We had 10 persons in our party... More

We were warned that the hotel didnt have heat but we were fine in our warm pjs under the covers. One of the rooms did have a fireplace so we cozied up there while visiting with... More

Visiting the Reserve of the Mariposas Monarcas is a once in a lifetime experience. Our stay at Plaza Don Gabino enhanced the experience very much. We arrived at Plaza Don Gabino in a rental car shortly after dark intending to stay at another hotel in Angangueo. We had stopped at Don Gabino to ask for directions to the other hotel.... More

We stayed two night so we could go to the Monarch butterfly sanctuary for an entire day. I see some of the negative reviews and do not understand. Perhaps our stay was pleasurable because we do not act like the "Ugly Americans" (or Canadians) and expect unreasonable things. Mario (the owner) and his staff could not have been more gracious...

This hotel is very clean and nicely situated. That being said, there are a few things that could be better. I think that the biggest draw back is lack of heat in the room. As Canadians, we are well adapted to the cold but a room without heat at the freezing level is just not that comfortable. The beds are... More

Since our return a week ago, I have had a hard time writing this review because my husband and I can’t seem to describe how amazing this trip was. Going to the reserves for the Monarch Butterflies was indescribable and January was a great time to go – no crowds at either of the reserves. The hikes were both about... More
