“What a Hidden Gem”
Reviewed January 1, 2010

We stayed here 27 Dec 2009 to 2 Jan 2010. The hotel complex is magnificent!!!!. All the rooms are spotless and each has its own fireplace as temperatures can drop to the 50'sF in the evenings and are a very pleasant low 70"sF during the day. During the summer it would be the ideal place to excape the heat prevalent in the lower areas. . The air is clear with no humidity. After all, you are about 6500ft above sea level in the mountains. The views are spectacular, mountains, volcanoes , the pine forest and even a beautiful lake to fish in just minutes away (Trout ,Bass Etc). Of course there is a 9 hole Golf course on site as well.
The local village of Tapalpa is very quaint old Mexico and the shopping is excellent..Local sights to see are the largest waterfall in Mexico , the strange huge rock formations plus the Town of Sayula about an hour away which is the home of the world famous Ojeda Cutlery Factory - the best in Mexico!! and very highly rated world-wide..
If you like hiking, horseback riding, ATVing it's all available in Tapalpa.
The hotel food is very good and very reasonable in price. Most entrees are less than 120 pesos and our entire New Years Eve Party which included a huge buffet , complimentary traditional drinks and live entertainment came to 850 pesos for 2people. If you want other drinks , a very good bar is available.
The only thing better than the hotel is the Staff. Although most only speak Spanish they all seem to know what you want. They bring the wood for your room fireplace every day and will even start the fire for you.. The maids clean and change everything daily.
Heraldo is the Manager. He speaks English and attended to our every need.
There are lots of families that stay here and they have an Activity Director on site that keeps the children busy with crafts and games. She was spectacular during our Mexican New Year's Eve party. Lots of fun, traditional Mexican Games and dancing to the live music to the wee hours. This was probably the noisiest night of the year but because the Bungalow type suites are located throughout the huge property complex, noise is never a problem. and that is important too us as we like our peace and tranquility.
If you want to see what real Mexico is like, where the" Gringos" are rare and the people friendly with no hassle shopping come here!
What more can I say- come see for yourself then you can write your own review.
