This is a lovely old hacienda with a real hacienda feel. We selected Suite #10, which sits all by itself on a corner of the expansive grounds and I am so glad we paid the little bit extra for that room. It was so very charming with its wood stove that really made it toasty. It was very roomy and comfortable.
Breakfast (included) was quite nice with a different fresh juice each day. My favorite was blackberry!
Take time to enjoy the grounds, but most certainly take a horseback ride up the mountain. It has been too many decades since I last rode (although my wife is accomplished rider) but it was an amazing 2-hour ride up the mountain, passing through several small villages and a wonderful eucalyptus forest.
Oh, don't expect something new as this hacienda dates back to 1602! There is no tv, but you can rent movies to enjoy in their lovely library. Good WiFi in the library and at the recepcion.
