After a wonderful stay here in 2008, we were very excited to be returning to our favorite city and this exquisite B&B. It was 8 days of pure bliss, which we will never forget. Herbert is an extraordinary host, with every detail of our comfort looked after with astute attention. The setting is magnificent--- a colonial mansion reproduced with lovely details in every corner of each room. The gorgeous furniture, dramatic artwork, pottery, sculptures, tiles, colors and spaciousness--- are a delight to savor slowly over time. We chose the Sunflower room again, with our own door going out to an expansive covered patio, and the salt-water pool, all with the backdrop of a panoramic view of the city and beyond. I have a back problem and the bed was perfect, with a selection of pillows upon request. The handsome bathroom and closet area are very well designed with every convenience. The early AM coffee/tea tray outside our door was a lovely way to start the day.
The proprietor, Herbert and his assistant Brian were delightful breakfast companions, and what incredible breakfasts! Each day a new culinary delight---- and they just kept getting better. There was no need for lunch most days. We also were very pleased with the laundry service and gracious presence of the Mexican staff. The location is slightly removed from the center of town, but easy to access with a bus or cab, or of course walking if you don't mind some steep slopes.
All in all, Casa Don Pascual exemplifies all that we love about this part of Mexico--- incredible gracious hospitality, gorgeous surroundings, and the spirit of fully enjoying the moment. Herbert made us feel like family, and we look forward to going back again and again.
