We stopped at Hacienda El Carmen for lunch after Guanchimontones ruins. Our only disappointment was that our private guide either did not know or did not care that the restaurant would not be open until 2:00 PM, so we spent nearly 45 minutes looking at the beautiful property, when what we really wanted was a quick meal and continue on...

From the glass of tequila we were served at check-in, to the hammocks under the trees the beautifully landscaped grounds, old photos and paintings on the walls, our super comfortable bed, oldy-worldy seating areas just begging you to sit and enjoy the view to the superb service at the spa, the owners of this hotel don't miss a thing.

After visiting the Guachimontones Pyramids we went to Hacienda del Carmen for lunch. One thing to know is there is a locked gate and you have to use an intercom to gain entrance. The grounds are fabulous and one of the hotel employees gave us a tour of the grounds and rooms before lunch. We saw horses, iguana and wild...

Hacienda is beautifully situated with a great view on the mountains, it's a luxurious spa in the beautiful traditional charming buildings with a lot of colors. The food served there is really nice, we had been there at our friend's wedding and it was magnificent!

Although my husband and I have been to the Hacienda six or seven times, it never fails to amaze us. This year we took our three children, their spouses and our three grandchildren. It was their first time and our Christmas gift to them. From the moment we arrived their jaws dropped. We spend two nights there and a lifetime...

Fabulous hacienda, splendidly restored. The rooms have good sizes, and are decorated with antiques. A wonderful place to "do nothing" - the rooms do not have TV, and the internet is spotty. Possible activities are: horse riding, swimming, walking around, bicycles. They also have a nice lawn to practice your golf swing and putting. The food is very good lunch,...

Absolutely loves the vibe and ambiance in the hacienda🏡🏡🏡🏡Loved the relaxing lifestyle and the fact that there are no tvs in the room therefor it is a total disconnect from the world. The only reason why it is only "very good" in my books is because of the beds....there are very, very hard and do not help with a good...

Driving from Ajijic with my husband, Rogers, we enjoyed a lovely trip to the Hacienda, through the lush green farm lands of the Ameca Valley. Our driver, Lupio, picked up my daughter, Tiffany and her 11 year old son, Ryland, at the Guadalajara Airport. They had flown down from Toronto, Canada and were driven West, straight to the Hacienda.
