“Enjoyed a lot !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We satyed for two nights and enjoyed very much thanks to the Owner Leonardo, who offered us hospitality and fabulous service. We had the opportunity to watch and participate in vaccination of bulls and branding with a red iron, which was quite rare experience particularly for my son. We enjoyed the beautiful nature surrounding the hacienda and horse riding. The food was also awesome especially chilaquiles breakfast and soup with natural ingredients. The only thing needed for improvement is the volume of hot water for shower: it has hot water but short of warming the body during the very cold night in the mountains. We went driving my car but it was not difficult to arrive thanks to the map with detailed explanation that Leonardo had sent us beforehand. Gracias mucho Leonardo, his kids and the butler Juanito.

We prepaid our trip, a big mistake. The Hacienda itself is not a bad place but it is at the end of a long, dirt road that is not good if you don't have an SUV. The rooms are dark and dingy, cold and unwelcoming. Juan, the receptionist, is pleasant enough but incapable of dealing with customers. The hotel does not accept credit cards - something that we were not aware of before. So we were given the choice of driving a hour round trip to find an ATM that might or might not be in service, or going without food,or leaving the hotel. Not much of a choice really. No refund was offered. So I have just driven the 2.5 hours back to mexico city and have wasted a couple of hundred dollars.
Don't book, don't go, a waste of time, money and effort.
