I chose this destination because of previous reviews so a big thanks to previous reviewers!
This place is fantastic on every level. Lets start with location. The streetside secure entrance is gated and the property itself a short walk from the beach. The beach is clean with lots of room. Staff will set up umbrellas and beach chairs for you.
A fair sized market is located along the avenue about 6 blocks from the Patrizia. Lots of local handicrafts available. A variety of eatieries and shops are located along the avenue. The streets are quiet at night except for the obligatory mexican dogs yipping on occassion. A perfect setting in my opinion with a good mixture of things to do during the day and evening but sleepy after midnight.
As for the Hacienda itself there is a secure parking area just off the avenue for your rental car if needed. Upon entering the Hacienda you're greeted by an open and inviting courtyard with a pool and bar area centering your holiday fun. Our family spent most of our time in this courtyard area and many wonderful memories were made here. Just off the pool area are two large couches under a covered area perfect for sitting outside, but out of the direct sun.
We were a large family group of sixteen with five youngs ones and two seniors. The design of the Patrizia accomodated our families needs in every way with a main floor room for the seniors and private rooms for each family groups.
Rooms were spacious and everything the owners promised. All equipment worked well and we had no complaints. A minor comment on pillows which were feather so anyone with allergies should be aware. A tip on the showers is to run your basin hot water first and your shower will heat up faster.
The real jewel at Hacienda Patirizia is the staff. I cannot begin to express our appreciation for the service we received. These folks should put on seminars on how to treat guests. Polo, the manager, seemed to know what we needed before we did. He set up fishing, quadding, hiking, shopping, diving, and our transportation needs. All with great efficiency and a smile on his face.
Polo also put together a memorable three years olds birthday party and went above and beyond. Our chef Eric and Bartender Herro were also first rate and we were all sad to say goodbye to them all.
Our financial dealings with the owners Roger and Pat were efficient, and they also were very helpful to us. In short the Hacienda Patrizia was the finest loding experience in my 35 years of travelling. I highly recommend them in every way. Very good value.
Thanks Polo and crew for creating a life time memory for our family. You guys are first class.
