We were interested in staying in this amazing place, and finally it happened. The view is amazing, the way it was built really shows the interest of its owner to make it his dream come true. There are a few points to consider: A) No internet access B) No TV The view is incredible, the feeling of being in a... More

Hacienda Ucazanaztacua is all... and more than we expected as guests in an intimate boutique hotel. The hotel was built and is attended by the owner, wonderful señor Rafael and features tastefully decorated rooms and general areas with stunning views over lake Patzcuaro. We enjoyed the excursions to Tzintzuntzan and around the lake. We took the opportunity to hire a... More

We know well the region around Morelia and Patzcuaro, but we only got to know this wonderful place very recently. The location at lake Patzcuaro is superb and in a very quiet and peaceful spot, in distance from the touristic places around Patzcuaro and the island of Janitzio. The views from every part of the hotel are stunning. The garden... More

We found this little piece of heaven browsing the internet. We wanted something near Morelia, since it has such a rich cultural offer. Their website soon attracted my attention. It appeared to be a simple but yet luxurious and comfortable place. I was skeptic about their wonderful pictures. Trust me, Photoshop will never match the breathtaking views and spectacular scenery... More

Patzcuaro is a wonderful Mexican town and this hotel was in a great location to walk around the town. The hotel was spotless and very quiet with very nice rooms. We would stay here again.
