This old hacienda, or to be more precise this old sugar mill (ingenio azucarero ) is really looking great and for that reason is a favorite place among locals for weddings .
The old buildings have been cleverly transformed , the gardens are gorgeous and well trimmed , it was wet season so everything was green with a touch of tropical humid forest .
The rooms have a fair size , the bathrooms show their age , amenities are plentiful ( three different soaps ..)
Unfortunately one has to use the air conditioning even though the night fresh air would be much nicer , but there is no way to get it to breeze in (existing ventilators are totally inefficient for that purpose )
Breakfast is extra abundant with a lot of different choices but better to prefer the local staples rather than the not so good imported ideas ( bread, croissants ..) . Restaurant service was often more busy chatting between themselves rather than looking after consumers .
Reception and checking out was fast and kind .
From my room I would not hear the music of the wedding party I am not sure the same was true for the front bedrooms .
The swimming pool is large but can be quite crowded . The gym does not have many machines but as not many people used it that week end , it was not an issue .
