Apart from a misunderstanding on our first night which the hotel has apologised for and made amends with a lovely bottle of Mexican sparkling wine, Iberian type ham & cheeses, this place is by no means 1st rate. It seems to be geared up mainly for events (lots of big marquees in the grounds). On our 1st night we were 2 of only 3 guests and we haven't seen any more during our 3 night stay (now 14th Feb). It's a good 10 minutes drive to the city centre. Lovely grounds but no comfortable chairs to sit in. Bed & room fantastic but no use for the Jacuzzi which would have wasted a vast volume of water. No swimming pool. Restaurant OK for breakfast but can't imagine that it can compete with what's around in the city.

Nice fancy modern rooms or you can get some colonial spanish ones, big yard with big gardens but the heater didn't work it was so cold, and you must get a taxi all the time especially at night cause it's a 30 minutes walk to the main plaza

We were a large group and we went for an early dinner. The service was very good, and the food just OK. The place is very nice; a bit contemporary Hacienda style with very large gardens so if you bring your children they may run and have a great time. Prices are goo you may expect to pay about 25 dollars per person.

This spot was out of the way but worth finding. An old Spanish hacienda with beautiful gardens. We had a lovely lunch in their restaurant. Service was very attentive- a bit slow but the meal delightful. We tried the onion soup, medallions with pepper sauce and large shrimp with tequila. Yummmy... Wine list was not that good Will try the hotel next time we are in town. It look charming, welcoming and quiet.

Partly our fault for not making reservations ahead of time, we were left with El Parador or else noisy, alcohol rich restaurants in town. We came to visit El Parador which sits a bit outside the city center and were impressed by the beautiful construction and the extremely lovely and gracious gardens. So we dove in and returned for New Year's Eve. We knew the price ahead of time, it is true. We though we'd get some fabulous dinner. That was unfortunately not to be the case. Meager portions with mediocre food. Very disappointing. In a city which has huge abundance of great restaurants and otherwise amazing food, we were dumbfounded to be served such terrible food, having dished out more than about 1,200 pesos per person! And one had to pay extra for alcohol- they only sold alcohol and spirits by the bottle and refused, for instance, to serve a screwdriver unless you bought the bottle of vodka! Outright shameless opportunistic attitude! Robo a mano armada...en una institución religiosa. No entiendo...

We went for a special dinner during Christmas to the restaurant of "el parador San Juan de Dios" and were very shocked! The dinner costs 750 Mxn per person, food was ok but the location absolutely not adequate for this level of hotel and this price level considering average Mexican dinner prices. At 10°C outside temperature, they gave us a table in a tent with almost NO HEATING, so we had Christmas dinner at 16°C, without any tablecloth, music or decoration inside the tent. To go to that dinner buffet you had to leave the tent in the garden to another room inside, that's why they left open the doors of the tent all the time. The Service team was relatively slow and couldn't improve any of the points mentioned above. All in all it was a very disappointing experience at the special evening. We choose the restaurant due to the good image of the entire hotel, but I can't recommend anybody to visit the restaurant especially as there are so many other nice locations in the city.

We stayed four wonderful nights at this enchanted place. Each room is different but all are spacious and comfortable. It is about 10 min ride by taxi from downtown which may be a minus but on the other hand you enjoy the quiet and the peace not offered in more centrally located hotels. Staff is very friendly and the whole place is impecable. The only downside of the hotel is the restaurant, expensive and the food quality is not so good, even for breakfast. On weekends it can be very noisy as it is a popular wedding venue, you are advised to ask prior of making reservations.

Remembering when this was the Harvard Ranch, a center for students and anthropologists doing fieldwork in SCLC in the 60s-80s. Third time I've (just) eaten in its restaurant, a long block behind the famous Na Bolom. Beautiful grounds, relaxing restaurant with background music. Since we were the only ones in the restaurant for lunch, a bit surprising how slow attention was. I thought the food was worth the visit (though something didn't agree with my stomach)....I'd still recommend it. Pricey, but good.

This hotel is set on a large property with beautiful gardens. It is very private, peaceful and quiet as it is about a 5 minute drive out of town. The reception staff are excellent, they speak basic English and were very helpful with anything we needed during our stay. The rooms were full of character with a king sized very comfortable bed, a TV, heater and a beautiful fireplace in each room. The bathrooms are large and spotless with timber floors which flow throughout the large room. Breakfast is not included however we had the 'Americano' breakfast in the restaurant and it was great. It is about a $30 cab ride from the town centre, however lets you escape the bustle of town and take in the magic of San Cristobal. Every evening the staff lit our fireplace for us which was great. Highly recommend staying here!

Response from San Juan de Dio... P, Director Comercial at Parador San Juan de Dios
Responded Aug 17, 2015
Estimado Sr. Alonso. Agradecemos sus comentarios y nos complace el saber que disfruto su estancia con nosotros. Efectivamente contamos con 15 cómodas y calidad habitaciones que están a su disposición cuando guste visitarnos nuevamente así como el bar "carolus" en donde se tuvieron las celebraciones. Nuestro servicio de restaurante está mejorando con la intención de que no se tengan detalles y la distancia del hotel con respecto al centro es corta, además provoca que el hotel sea un lugar tranquilo y exclusivo. Saludos. Israel Córdova.

This is the third time we visit this Hotel. Very nice rooms. Each one with chimney. Service is very very good. It has a small art museum at the rear of the hotel. The only thing bad about this hotel is that is not close to san cristobal town. At least not in a walking distance. Rather than that it's a lovely peaceful place.
