My girlfriend and I debated the shear expense of the place and looked for others (full on Valentines Day, but check out Casa Fernanda). This ended up being a such a wonderful experience the price is a bit beside the point. We ended up with a private detached suite with a semi-private terrace that joined a promenade overlooking the city and mountains beyond.
Morning and evening we swam in a pool that as other reviews mentioned is kept at about 75F / 25C which is perfect for the morning and sunsets and bobbing around with that special someone. On the topic of water our room also had a jacuzzi tub which made a fun after-dinner activity.
I believe there are two schemes for pricing, as despite the "European Plan" designation the rate booked through this site did not include breakfast (although staff inquired about vouchers). Coffee on the terrace was a delight, but breakfast for 180 pesos didn't stack up, consisting of a yawn inducing hot bar, juices and a tortillero. The below average morning meal lends credibility to other reviewer's comments about the poor quality of the dining experience. We later cancelled our reservations for dinner here opting instead for Axitla, which is literally the best meal I've ever eaten in Mexico.
I will credit the hotel with an unforgettable Pina Colada served poolside and the bar's willingness to serve up ice for some special drinks we brought with us.
