I just spent a week at Casa Carmen on a artist painting retreat (18 painters) and found it to not only perfect for our purposes, but just perfect overall! The courtyard is beautiful - with the fountain bubbling all day, and the sun hitting the stone pavement, it couldn't be any more charming and comfortable. The breakfast and lunches were delightful and our group had many, many (MANY!) dietary needs and requests and each and every one was honored in a delicious and satisfying way. My room (Magnolia) was large with a walk in closet and a pretty nice bathroom. Cynthia and the staff were very attentive and I don't know if she does this with all her groups, but every evening someone circled the courtyard with a carafe of tequila or mescal and a tray of shot glasses! How fun is that? As other reviewers have stated, the location is perfect for getting around town on foot and I spent lots of time walking around town, including visiting the Jardin, the artisans and food market and all the area shops. When you're inside the walls of Casa Carmen, you feel like you're in the middle of a quiet and protected sanctuary, but when you step out the gate, you're in the thick of an amazing, bustling, friendly and safe "village". Every time I walked out the gate, I felt like I was walking onto a perfect movie set, ala Steven Spielberg! I can't wait to take my husband and friends back to Casa Carmen AND San Miguel!
Magnolia would be perfect for a couple. Plenty of room to unpack, two comfortable chairs with a tab...
