“WOW What a beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

Now this is a bit different to the usual hotel, each and every bedroom is different, mine was a reasonable size, olde worlde, with a forboding picture on the wall above my bed!!, the shower was one side of a dividing wall and the loo the other. One person in our group reckoned she felt the vibes - it is very spiritual. Another person in the group had her own private swimming pool and sun loungers . The restaurant is terrific with trees growing through it, breakfast was very good. sadly only spent one night here.

It's true, the place is gorgeous and very historical. Although the rooms are the quality of a cheap motel. Not only that, when I stayed I traveled with family, ages 23-80, and we ALL had food poisoning! I mean every single one of us, sick as dogs for several days! TERRIBLE experience for a "luxury" hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011

As an American, staying at this 16th century property was a unique experience to say the least. It's immense with ponds, exotic birds, extensive caves, a bullfighting ring and on & on. The pool was about twice the size of an olympic pool with a shallow area for the kids. We took the breakfast buffet package. Selections of both Mexican and American items were fresh and plentiful.

As a hotel the managers have a challenge since the buildings are literally ancient. It rained both days of our stay. The first night the roof leaked and we had a steady drip just outside our son's crib. My wife complained and they moved us to a smaller but more modern room without a leaking problem. I understand that you need to allow for a few issues when staying at a 16th century hotel. My only complaint is that many items such as bathroom door latches, loose faucets, etc are items that could be easily addressed by basic maintenance. If I had a screwdriver and an adjustable wrench I could have walked around the property and found a dozen items to quickly fix. They have many employees to handle luggage, etc, but should focus more on maintenance. A little goes a long way.

Even with that, I recommend everyone experience this property but don't book it for more than a couple nights. It is a "must see".

Room Tip: Room 110 was great but the roof leaked. Room 113 was more modern but smaller. Both were plenty large...

The place has nice exteriors and beautiful gardens. The rooms have the quality of a bad and cheap road motel. The noise is terrible. They have weddings in the garden that end at 3am We had to try to sleep with the drums of the wedding noise under the pillow.
The rooms are filthy and there is humidity on the walls. There was no tv in our room and later I discovered that other rooms had it.
Complaining the next morning led to nothing. They told me almost that it was my fault that me and my family could not sleep.
The food at the restaurant was quite mediocre.
I was with a family wedding party at another Hacienda nearby. The experience of all of them was the same.
Besides they have the quality of a bad road motel and the prices of a Four Seasons.
Avoid staying at this hotel like the plague

incredably historic and interesting. The grounds are awe inspireing and the pool is so beautiful I wanted to strip down and jump in naked on principal alone. It is a true Spaish Haucienda and if you want to sit at and use incredable pices that really should be in a museum, then this is it.
I could definatly see getting married there or an incredable family reunion. I heard there is horse back riding around there but thats as far as I looked into it.
The beds do leave somthing to be disired but this isn't a plush spa. It is a unique experiance hotel. I only stayed one night but I could see staying two nights. The tavern is only open friday, saterday and sunday but it looks like a great place for a beer or wine.

Hacienda means no comfort, hard beds, moisture in rooms since all it is is brick walls,
large property with horses, Not for people with allergies or astma!
We stayed for 2 nights - just to relax, but besides the oversized pool (up to 9 feet deep) there is nothing else to do. We stop there on our way to taxco, the silver town, and one night would have been plenty. We where the only guests on monday and tuesday... They had a tourist bus come for a visit one day with 10 people - it's an interesting property to visit and have brunch or lunch buffet, but than i would recommend to be on your way. No aircondition in our unit, no TV, no entertainment here or in the small "mexican restaurannt strip" down the street.
There are 2 more hotels "lake location" one is brand new with room rates of $200+ and one run down place... 4 local restaurants on the street (one sushi place) - no bank.
The lake had no activities during our stay (advertised water skiing) - pretty dead place.MeuterMedia
