Were weekend guests at the Hacienda and could not have been more pleased with our time spent there.
First a comment on location: this was a real Hacienda. Haciendas were not built city center, or near current popular tourist attractions. They were large land holdings in the countryside. It is a convenient location as it is 45 minutes out of Guadalajara. This hacienda is a destination, not a home base for touring Jalisco.
It is above all authentic and charming, but is up to date with wonderful spa facilities and in house recreational opportunities.
The service is attentive and the staff are well trained to take care of guests needs and wants. There is a genuine service attitude from the staff. Hospitality and service orientation are evident, but one doesn't feel as if they are tripping over the help. We were made to feel at home here.
We enjoyed authentic meals, prepared well and served on the haciendas grand columned terrace.
We enjoyed tequila from the charming bar and wines from the wine cellars. In the evening at dinner we were serenaded by a musical trio at dinner, they were still serving at 10 pm.
The rooms are luxurious with very large bathrooms with all the amenities. The shower was one of the best ever with surprising water pressure. The bed firm and comfortable with fabulous bedding.
In one weekend I became a huge fan. I will be back in the very near future.
