Room was large. Lighten poor for evening reading. Breakfast was okay, but had to ask for hot egg to be delivered from kitchen to breakfast area. Staff was friendly. It was not worth $200.00 a night, unless you are staying in San Juan for a specific purpose like touring the Mission. We will go to Carmel or Monterey next trip.

I agree with other reviewer that complained about clumping. Walls thin, no carpets so least movement on floor above reverberated through ours, no door on bathroom, so lest tinkle heard by other sharing room, no tubs in any room, breakfast such as it was outside even though very cold out side, same breakfast each day, very expensive, on a weekend...

Myself and 22 Colleagues stayed here as part of an offsite event for our team. It was more of an event than a Hotel Stay. The Hotel is of course amazing and beautiful, but it is connected to a Winery and Fine Dining. Frank the Owner and Alfonso the Manager literally advised they were intent on selling an experience rather... More

My husband and I felt we were in a very special place. The staff is out of this world and they make you feel special in every way. Sitting in the courtyard with the beautiful olive trees watching the stars makes you feel you are in Tuscany.

We were so very impressed! The best accommodations and staff I've ever dealt with. This lil no name town has a hidden gem within! The hacienda del leal is very beautiful, clean and relaxing. Alfonso and his staff are very thorough, kind and seem happy to be at this lovely hotel. The hotel is connected with the winery Leal. I... More

Booked here for one night for a business trip with other peers managers. The Leal family has done a lot to make this an upcoming destination or stopover in a location that doesn't have much to offer. Upon pulling up, we were greeted at our car with luggage assistance and bottles of water for all. Check-in offered a glass of... More

My wife and I were a little dubious when we made the reservation simply because this hotel was not a "name brand" and located a little off the beaten path. We should not have been concerned. Recently updated with first class service, attention to detail and a really nice morning wake-up with a wood-fired oven warming muffins in the courtyard... More

This fabulous Inn was a happenstance. We could not find a room after golf. We were sent here. We felt like we had arrived Europe!!! Rooms excellent very clean and beautiful ambiance. Welcome glass of vino from his winery. Outdoors too beautiful too explain will post pictures. We stayed another night just to have this comfort in luxury!

These are the thinnest walls I have ever experienced in 50+ years of travel. We could not sleep because of conversations in the next room and 'clomping' in the room above us. These also woke us up repeatedly. When the hotel is not full, why do they clump the guests together? Internet was not reliable. Keys would not work with... More
