A tranquil oasis in the heart of Taxco, Casa de las Palmas offers Colonial charm and elegance just steps away from the main Zocolo and Taxco's famous silver and crafts shopping. An early 19th Century Main House and early 20th Century art studio turned antique-filled suite surrounding gorgeous private gardens, antiques from around the world, and panoramic views from multiple terraces and roof decks of the city are yours to enjoy, and a pampered alternative to hotels. The compound has hosted a veritable who's who of the "Lost Generation", being the long time home of artist Clinton King, whose first wife, Lady Duff-Twysden, was Hemingway's model for "Lady Brett" in "The Sun Also Rises". His second wife, Narcissa Swift, was memorialized in her friend Georgia O'Keefe's famous painting "Narcissa's Last Orchid". Rivera, Siquieros, Kahlo, and Faulkner are confirmed visitors and many others rumored to have enjoyed our ambiance. Library/office off master bedroom, carved stone fireplaces in living room and bedrooms, wireless internet access, flat screen TV's, cable, and extensive DVD library are here for you to enjoy. Oscar and Silvia, Casa de Las Palmas' attentive managers, are here to make your stay a memorable one. Fresh flowers on arrival, daily continental breakfast, a welcome bottle of tequila, and bottled water are included in your price. Silvia will prepare delicious full breakfasts and private meals in the courtyard or on the veranda for an extra cost. Want beer, rum, snacks, or mixers? Let us know when you book and we will make sure your accommodations are stocked to to your liking when you arrive. Oscar is also a very knowledgeable guide to ruins, caverns, and various workshops in the area and is happy to provide this service to you at a very reasonable rate.

Our stay was a very special experience. Las Palmas is a lovely, historical colonial tucked away above the magical zocalo of Taxco with Santa Prisca in the forefront. The home is beautifully appointed with modern comforts in an atmosphere rich with antiques and authenticity. Not only is there the expansive terrace offering incredible views, but one also enters the property to a gardener 's delight. The hosts could not be more accommodating, delightful people. It was truly magical being there. I do not know if we will ever be able to stay anywhere else. We decided that we will base our next trip when Las Palmas is available.

We spent a week and had one of the most memorable trips imaginable. We were joined by some wonderful Mexican friends and their kids. The kids played volley ball and soccer within the walls. We cooked, laughed and and played. Oscar took us the waterfalls and swimming hole that is near by. Silvia made the best Chili Rellenos ever. Went to the Saturday silver market, quite a treat. We stomped through the town daily, shopped in the local markets and felt totally safe at all times My wife is going back with a group of her girlfriends this summer. This place is special.

My third stay at Casa de las Palmas and it won't be my last. My previous reviews of this B&B emphasise the warm welcome always given by the manager, Oscar, his wife, Silvia, and their sons. Nothing is too much trouble. Oscar will take you where you want to go while Silvia's cooking is a treat! This is still the case. This time I want to thank the owner, Riki, for her patience with me after a debacle on PayPal - totally my fault. Subsequent communication was open and honest and all ended well. I love Taxco and look at Casa de las Palmas as my home there. Highly recommended.

This was our first visit to Taxco and it was a wonderful surprise. Casa de las Palmas is a gorgeous quiet oasis in the hear of the town. Steps from the central square, we were at the center of everything in moments. We were there for new years eve and watched the fireworks over the cathedral from the rooftop patio. Oscar and his family made everything easy - from a delicious breakfast to tours of the famous caves and ruins in the region. My kids summed it up best when they said "Dad, you've really outdone yourself this time"! Taxco was a charming town with great scenery, delicious food and good side trips. Casa de las Palmas was the perfect finishing touch.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Casa de las Palmas which is located a few streets up from the main square in Taxco. Nested among narrow, winding cobblestone streets, this B&B with high walls hides a beautiful garden inside. We had breakfast of coffee, fresh fruit juice, and sweet bread overlooking the cathedral in the main square. Our host was friendly, and helpful in giving suggestions of where to go for dinner. The room was small, but we spent little time in it. WiFi signal was good!
