So this place is unbelievably beautiful! Hand carved wood, clay tile everywhere, brick vaulted ceilings, travertine covered bathrooms, original paintings on the walls, huge handmade carved leather inlaid beds and chairs in rooms. Everything is set to be highest class! But sadly ... it fails :(
Seems like whomever was building this place, and it is VERY new, ran out of money to properly finish off the grandeur - light switches that do not operate any lights (not wired in) and lights that are off as they cant be operated by any switch, plumbing fixtures that need to be properly installed and sealed, bed furnishings that seen better days (however they are super clean), unfinished fireplaces and hut tubs through the property, etc Crazily warped pool table that is missing one ball, has 2 balls broken and no chalk for the cues, though it makes perfect settings for a game of Crazy Pool. Of course a gorgeous chess set with pieces missing heads and some pieces MIA entirely probably is good for a relaxing game of Crazy Chess as well. But only if you play those during daylight time as there is no working light in that game room or bring your own light from the room like we did (Little ingenuity gets you far :+) ) Though no ingenuity will get you shower those few times there was no water for a bit but it always came back and hot water was always available. (Water is brought onsite in huge tanks and we just happened to be there when it ran out and tanks were changed.) Yet lights never went out even when fire in Todos Santos put lights out for entire region - benefit of running on generator!
It MUST be said that property is extremely clean all over. There always was a person at the front office to help with needed and there is even WiFi ($10 a day) and room service available though nearest restaurant is only 5 min away walking on the beach.
To sum up:
New property that was not finished right
Lacking stuff and therefore maintenance
Do not expect much of personal service (bellboys, valets, concierges, etc)
Read above about shortcomings
Come with open mind
It was an AWESOME stay and we enjoyed every minute being at the Hacienda Cerritos!!!
