The grounds and buildings are lovely but the food is a disappointment. The house was the home of Barbara Woolworth Hutton at one time and has historical value for the area. The dinner menu had many offerings but the food was just average and the servings small. We had problems with getting our drink order correctly and also had trouble... More

The breakfast is great, especially the Sunday Brunch. I wouldn't recommend for dinner, it was underwhelming and they must have a different chef that comes for dinner than for breakfast.

This place is everything USED TO BE: it used to be good, it used to be great, it used to have great rooms, it used to have great buffet, USED TO. Not anymore. Even weddings have lost their angle since the food is soo bad. When you finally manage to find a place that makes lousy quesadillas you know there... More

I didn't like anything at all from this restaurant. I'm a japanese food lover and I've had the luck to eat great japanese food prepared by expert hands, but this place is a real insult to japanese restaurants. They just throw diced vegetables with meat to a pan (I doubt they even use a wok) put some soy sauce on... More

This place used to be fantastic. To be fair, the appetizers and desserts were quite good actually. The rest of the food was barely eatable and served cold. The service was tremendously slow. The waiters were friendly but very forgetful and disorganized. We went for dinner and had an awful night; one of my friends and I got very sick.... More

Probably the best recognized hotel in town, settled in a former Barbara Hutton's mansion surrounded by green areas. Feels like you traveled to Japan in a second. Just beautiful

The quality of the food is decent, not bad but nothing to write home about. However the service is painfully slow, some of us were on our second course while others were still waiting on their first one. Some dishes were cold and didn't arrive when expected (eg. My soup got to the table AFTER my main course). All of... More

We had a lunch and a dinner at the place. The location is great, the service excellent, the selection and quality of the dishes is very good. Both experiences were awesome. I was most impressed by the very reasonably priced sake selection.

This place was adapted from a private residence into a hotel. Its main restaurant is Sumiya, and it is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been at. The building is a traditional Japanese construction, surrounded by breath-taking gardens, the food is delicious, and the service is outstanding. This is a MUST while at Cuernavaca, and I think that’s all... More

If you visit Sumiya during the day, prepare yourself for a quick visit to Tokyo, Japan. Sumiya is an enchanting Japanese Palace with lush gardens, ponds,, creeks and fountains. In the morning you can choose from having breakfast at the Buffet or at the Brunch area. I recomend the second option. Inside a Japanese house with great views of the... More
