Molinos is a very small town and super quiet. Also read: not much to do, but a great stop while touring NWArgentina. We loved this old hacienda. Very picturesque. The bed was comfortable. No TV, no heat or AC/we only needed the ceiling fan. No safe in the room. There is a refrigerator in case you care. Clean. The food at the restaurant is fabulous. Lettuce grown outside. The pasta was surprisingly delicious. Breakfast basic but high quality. We enjoyed our one night stay very much.
After a long day driving and visiting different towns, arriving at Hacienda de Molina’s was a treat! Spacious room with a lot of history and interesting decor. Still using the old type of keys, with an amazing patio and well treated gardens, you feel comfortable right away.
Tasteful food prepared carefully with good and local ingredients.
Some spanish is recommended and be aware that internet reception is not good in the rooms.
I think we were the only people staying the night we spent there. It was a very hot day when we arrived. After driving many kilometres on the unpaved road from Cafayate, to sip a gin and tonic in the courtyard shaded by an enormous old tree was just bliss. Our room was cool and well appointed. The pool was a bit fresh but we relaxed quietly there until the sum went down. Dinner was fine and the breakfast buffet seemed extravagant for just the two of us. Although it is unlikely we would ever be back I would recommend the hotel for those who venture there.
We loved the Hacienda de Molinos where we sadly only spent one night. When you step thorough the door of the historic, white-washed adobe building, you are greeted by a large courtyard with tables underneath an enormous tree. It is an incredibly welcoming sight after a long (but beautiful) drive from Salta. We couldn't have been happier with our very spacious room (#14) with its pretty wrought iron framed King bed, gorgeous stone floor tiles and lovely bathroom. There's a nice pool on the side of the property that we didn't even notice until we left the next day. Our dinner at the restaurant (I had trout, my husband had steak) was excellent. Service is very good. The staff speaks little English but they were very patient with our poor Spanish and we managed just fine. Molinos is a tiny, ultra-quiet place; it's worth taking a walk around the main square and poking into the church just across from the hotel. If we did it again, we would spend two nights in Molinos—a full day getting there and the next day having a relaxing lunch and tour of Colome vineyards and the James Turrell art gallery (about 20 km from Molinos). Everything takes longer than anticipated in this region with the curvy gravel roads so if you can manage some extra days on a Salta-Molinos-Cafayate loop, it's so worth it.
We stopped over in Molinos on the way to Cachi and fell inlove with Hacienda de Molinos. We only stopped there for coffee but were so impressed with this beautiful place that we asked if they had rooms available. Luckily they did! Our room was beautiful and comfortable, we loved chilling in the sunny garden and our kids even braved the cold(ish) outdoor pool. We had such a lovely stay here, highly recommend.
