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...

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.

WOW!!! We came here after visiting Atotonilco church (like the Sistine Chapel inside!) and soaking at La Gruta, all an easy and very beautiful walk after taking the bus from SMA (ask at the tourist info office how to take the bus and walk or you could take a taxi). We got to Nirvana at 11:15 and they dont serve... More
