A short drive from town (10-15 minutes), Nirvana offers a beautiful and quiet place to relax, eat deliciously, and have some privacy. We loved the pool! The water is nice and warm. The rooms are spacious and bright, with plenty closet space, and nice view from the balcony. There's a mini fridge, and Nespresso coffeemaker.

Six of us went to Nirvana for lunch. Each of us loved our food. The meal was well prepared and beautifully presented. We eat outside on the terrace soaking in the outstanding view. Even though this restaurant is about 15 minutes outside of the center of San Miguel, the trip is well worth it!

Ate lunch at Nirvana and found the food and service lacking. My first cocktail glass had lipstick on it and the replacement glass was also dirty. I had the tuna with a salad and baked potato which was fine but not great. The service was adequate but nothing exceptional. The men's bathroom was very different in that the commode and... More

I spent a weekend at Nirvana with friends. It is aptly named, very quiet and beautiful. The rooms are all in separate little units, I stayed in the Tranquility room. It was beautiful and absolutely spotless. The bathroom was huge and had a massive soaker tub, with large windows overlooking a luscious green valley. I generally have trouble sleeping but... More

Very nice location, view and facilities overall. The food is also very good...great taste and variety. It was all looking perfect for our romantic get away weekend until we found 3 scorpions in our bedroom (yes, 3!); went to the reception and although they came and killed 2, the 3rd one ran away and we couldn't find it...it only goes...

This hotel and restaurant is an oasis on the outskirts of San Miguel. It is a wonderful place of quiet and relaxation with superb cuisine and attentive service. The inventive menu offers a nice variety including grilled meats and fish dishes and artistically prepared appetizers and wonderful desserts. The grounds are beautiful and a pleasure to walk through after a... More

Cuisine is Mexican mainly with a great variety of meat and fish including sashimi Mexican style. Presentation is superb as is the taste. Service was excellent. There is a hotel on the site... More

Went there for a business dinner and I have to say that the site, ambience and service are just first class. Food was tasty and very well cooked. Seafood and steak selections are always s good choice. We sat at the terrace and just had a memorable time.
