We stayed at Villa Maria Cristina last night with our family. The property is beautiful. We had two suites and they were spectacular. Our children loved the hot tub on our deck outside our room. The food and service at the restaurant were great. The General Manager met us at check-in and stopped by during dinner to see how we... More

This former residence was built in the mid 1800's and has been meticulously restored and maintained. The service and staff are first rate. Always pleased to see us and every detail was looked after. The restaurant served high quality food from breakfast through late night dinners. The drinks from the bar were perfect. While not inexpensive, for a tourist from... More

Service is outstanding. Great spa and indoor pool. Location not too close to downtown but taxis or private hotel service can take you. Great restaurant, the chilaquiles were top notch. Loved loved loved.

What an amazing property just outside the historic centre of Guanajuato. The property is run by Relais and Chateau guaranteeing a high level of quality and service. We were not disappointed. The room was spacious and comfortably furnished. We were lucky enough to have a large balcony, with a spa and semi outdoor shower, that offered lovely views of the... More

The place is beautiful and the staff is very polite and kind. The spa and the pools are are very nice and clean. The price is to high for what you get in return. If you want to have a good night sleep make sure to book a room far away from the restaurant.

Dear Maribel, Thank you very much for your review. Is a pity we didn't be aware of disturbing noise going to your room. Having three different buildings it would be great for us offering you a much quiet suite. Regarding price we could be one of most expensive hotels in the region but also one of the most upscale ones... More

The Hotel is a little out of town but not so far it's a chore/ hassle. The hotel building itself is wonderful. Facilities in spa and pool are as one would expect.

This is a beautiful hotel of about 38 rooms that are fitted out very well. There are lovely outside areas for relaxing or having refreshments. There is a heated outside pool that compliments an indoor spa and another heated pool. I really appreciated the whole building but I am very glad someone else's money was invested.
