We stayed in La Villa Bonita for 5 nights in September 2013. When we arrived, Ana the host brought us first to our room, one of the 5 rooms Villa Bonita has, and we loved it instantly. The rooms are very nicely decorated; they have a lot of character, there is extra seating and they have a perfected sized bathroom. We immediately felt like home .
In terms of the location: Perfect - it is located in a quiet street just a 10 minutes walk from the city center where we on regular basis went to the local market. In the city center you also find a lot of very nice bars and restaurants. If you have any doubts about which one to go to, Ana is always prepared to give you advice on that.
The cooking classes were very interested. We learned a lot about the Mexican cuisine since we made typical Mexican dishes such as Mole. Ana is a brilliant cook who explains everything very carefully and give a lot of information about all the products she works with in her classes. We went to the local market of Tepoztlan and Cuernavaca to buy the ingredients for the cooking classes.
The open kitchen, were Ana gives her cooking classes, has an awesome view. It was very nice to sit there every morning during breakfast and during the cooking classes.
From the very first moment we arrived in Villa Bonita, Ana and her family immediately made us feel like home. It was an unexpected holiday, but it turned out to be one of the best I ever had. Thank you again for the awesome 5 days!
