Beautiful hacienda hotel with Mexican hospitality
Posted Jan 6, 2016
From the minute I walked through the entryway with colorful murals, and through the open courtyard filled with tropical plants to the front desk, I knew I was in for a treat. The pictures do not do justice to this beautiful boutique hotel, which combines all the modern amenities with a traditional Mexican design style. The owners live onsite and make sure that everything works well. The breakfast at the hotel restaurant is good, and seems to be a favorite of local business people who come there for morning meetings. There is a soaking pool for cooling down after seeing the sights. My room was large and included extras such as robes and foot massager. The staff helped to arrange sightseeing trips, which made life easy since I don't speak Spanish. The hotel is several blocks from the central plaza tourist area, so it was easy to mingle with local people and enjoy the local food, music, and way of life. I traveled alone and always felt welcome and safe in this neighborhood. On weekends, the main avenue is closed and locals rent bikes to see the grand homes and have brunch. There is also a weekly folk festival and artist market held on the plaza outside the hotel.
