The place is beautiful and the staff is very polite and kind. The spa and the pools are are very nice and clean. The price is to high for what you get in return. If you want to have a good night sleep make sure to book a room far away from the restaurant.

Dear Maribel, Thank you very much for your review. Is a pity we didn't be aware of disturbing noise going to your room. Having three different buildings it would be great for us offering you a much quiet suite. Regarding price we could be one of most expensive hotels in the region but also one of the most upscale ones...

The Hotel is a little out of town but not so far it's a chore/ hassle. The hotel building itself is wonderful. Facilities in spa and pool are as one would expect. The service however is inconsistent eg what hotel management allows guests to play their own blaring music in the tranquil setting of a spa - in a 5...

Dear Michael, Thank you very much for your review and appreciation. I deeply regret you weren't comfortable with 140cm's double bed we provided; since at hotel most part of beds are Queen or King, if we were advised about this inconvenient at the beginning of your stay or during the same evening/night, for sure we will try out best in...

This is a beautiful hotel of about 38 rooms that are fitted out very well. There are lovely outside areas for relaxing or having refreshments. There is a heated outside pool that compliments an indoor spa and another heated pool. I really appreciated the whole building but I am very glad someone else's money was invested. Dinner and lunch were...

We had a spacious room. I would recommend against the most basic type of room as it feels very claustrophobic. Overall the hotel is quite pleasant. We have not used the spa or pools, but they looked nice. The breakfast is a weak point. They have an abysmal selection for b'fast included in the room rate, they also have an...

As others have said, the hotel is at the edge of town and is a long walk from the city center. It is a beautiful property with a wonderful staff. Everyone here is friendly and anxious to make one's stay enjoyable. Meals were excellent, and the hotel's manager could not have been more helpful.

This is an outstanding option in Guanajuato. The hotel is small, clean, tasteful and beautiful. The maintenance is superb as well. Rooms are very well equipped, with nice size and amenities. The highlight: The restaurant is really really good. Location is 5 - 10 minutes from city center, therefore it's peaceful and relaxing. Nevertheless, it´s not walking distance from nice...
