“Sweet memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2010

My husband and I were terribly sorry to see such a bad review of one of our favorite places, We have stayed many times as have friends to whom we recommended the place. Neither we or they have ever had a complaint. And Misael is someone we are glad to count as a friend. The cottages are private and have lovely views of the misty mountains and the lush vegitation of the well-kept gardens. Fireplaces, cozy beds, a breakfast that will hold you until dinner. All sorts of pampering things in the bathroom and a terry bathrobe. Don't hesitate.

La Galerita de San Sebastian is a hotel located in the beautiful, almost unspoiled village of San Sebastian del Oeste, in the Sierra Madre mountains about an hour from Puerto Vallarta. La Galerita is a charming place which would be a good option to spend a night or two while in town, and I say 'would' because it has a terrible flaw: Misael, his owner. This is one of these places where you struggle whenever you are about to leave the hotel; that's right, you guessed, at the moment of checking out and, of course, paying. It is precisely when some owners do not honour their word regarding the rate offered, like in Misael's case, and since they are so much into money they are ready to lie or whatever necessary. I just couldn't believe how rude and unfortunate was this guy's reaction towards me. I even told him that he was most probably losing a customer but to no avail. He obviously didn't care at all.
San Sebastian is a wonderful town, don't miss it, but be sure to skip La Galerita, or if you dare to visit, be sure to have everything written down and triple-checked!!! The place surely deserves a different owner.

legimadefensa, Dueño at La Galerita de San Sebastian, responded to this review, March 22, 2010
This guest got a rate for booking 3 rooms, but finally he leased only 2 rooms, so the rate changed, as we explained him and as it is plublished in our public website. In spite of our "qualitiy service", as he said all the time he spent with us, he did not want to pay the right rate (US16 dollar more), so he threatened us with difamation "any where, any time".
