I didnt like a lot the place. Is really expensive for that they offer. I have to wait a lot for the check in. The dormitories are normal but not waooo. They needs to do more activities in the nature. They only have horse ride only, really boring.

I was recently here for a wedding. The property grounds are beautiful, but the rooms are disgusting. The rooms are really dark and dirty. We had an incessant roach problem. They kept spraying the room and each time we would return to the room we were cheerfully greeted by these large creatures. I even found a roach in my suitcase... More

Somebody stole my cell phone! Dirty, dark and insecure place. Bad maintenance, too expensive. Not like photos. Don't go there you will lose your belongings! My husband and I had our worse nightmare that day were my cel phone was stolen from our room!!!! No one was responsible for that. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!

This is a beautiful property, but the accommodations were overstated. The room was expensive, and while large, was dark The whirlpool tub was lukewarm at best. We were told breakfast was included, and when we asked, were finally given 2 $5 coupons, which only covered some of the meal. We were there on a Friday, and were not told in... More

For the price of 200 dollars and with a room status "suite features a whirpool tub" you would not excpect to get a very dark and humid room, where the paint is falling of the walls and ceiling. I guess that the tiny tub could have made some bubbles if I would have had courage to try it. We ended... More

The photos look great and the promises sound good, but the follow-through is awful. Hot tub was freezing, indoor pool so cold you couldn't stand in the water let alone swim. Steps were rickety in dire need of repair, everyone in our wedding group (about 20 people) wound up covered in "no-see-um" bites, no screens for windows or patio doors,... More

Once I arrived I was amazed on how beautiful and well kept it was. They have an amazing indoor pool. The outside pool was clean and well kept. The grounds are beautiful and the good, the food is just exquisite. The rooms are very clean. The don't have a mini fridge. I will really recommend this Hacienda!!!

This is something different, not the city life. The place its great but recommended for people who are trying to rest or just hace a little of peace. You can smeel the home made coffee and enjoy the waterfalls that you can go walking.

I was in the hotel and I was surprised with the beauty of the place.after I made the check-in with Waldemar who is a great person and I think the only good and proper one. I was amazed with the peace of the mountains. I saw many things that I didn't like I saw a tall man near the inside... More
