My husband and I flew down privately with some friends right into the Alamos airport, were picked up by the hotel, and treated to red carpet service for 4 nights in early February. The Hacienda is absolutely magical and the service is warm and attentive. We were welcomed back like family. If you simply want a getaway, this is it. I could stay within the walls of the hacienda for a week, just luxuriating in the ambiance. The little town of Alamos is charming, historic and walkable. There is a private movie theatre within the hotel with a huge selection of movies. There is a wonderful collection of art and antiques which are spread throughout, making for interesting exploration.
It is an absolutely wonderful destination resort.

The setting is in the lower Sierra Madre in the village of Alamos which is a National Monument and a national 'Pueblo Magico'. Today with modern conveniences taken to a luxury level, all suites have large screen T.V.'s discretely hidden in antique cabinetry, plus many with antique furnishings, art of prominent Mexican artists and all suites and Hacienda Guest Rooms have at least one fireplace, as well as air conditioning and forced air heat for year around comfort.
