We were extremely charmed by Hacienda Jalisco. We so enjoyed escaping the hot beach scene to find ourselves in a mountain retreat in a room illuminated by oil lamps and a welcoming fire. The food was delicious, we especially recommend the chili rellenos. The gardens are lovely, the walk into town enjoyable and Joe is very hospitable. A definite must if you are in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hacienda Jalisco is a 280 year old Mexican Hacienda located in the Sierra Madre mountains above Puerto Vallarta. No electricity - oil lamps at night. Each room has a fireplace. Fruits and vegetables grown on the property. At 280 years old, the Hacienda Jalisco is not the Four Seasons - but it is truly the "real Mexico" - charming, quiet, peaceful, full of history. Museum on site. The Hacienda Jalisco was built by the Spanish upon discovering silver in San Sebastian and was built to process the silver. Recent painting and renovations have brought great improvement. Recommended for painters, writers, honeymoon couples, birdwatchers, history buffs, mining buffs or anyone who would like an easy get-away from the hustle and bustle of the city. As well, we grow, process and roast our own coffee! ... more less
