Pros: Comfy hammock, clean, really good food and lively conversation with Chef Michael, beautiful mountains surrounding, pleasing landscaping, nice pool, met really interesting folks we dined with.
Cons: We arrived at night after a harrowing drive through largely unmarked roads to be taken to our room POOL SIDE! I remember selecting what looked like a room nestled high in the mts with a view of mts. Pros: I said I couldn't stay there and was given a room vacated by a someone who had canceled. More Cons: A yoga retreat was in session the days we were there so there was no yoga (as advertised) offered to us non-retreatants; the group dominated the eating area with 10-12 at a long table and one or two tables of 2 nearby. We chose to schedule meals after they had left due to noise level. The privacy and solitude that is advertised is severely tempered by the proximity of neighbors. Thin walls allowed us to hear clear snoring, coughing, velcro opening, and other things we really didn't want to know about. The second day a black suv had parked in the night right in our line of vision (of pristine nature) and right on a path with little wrought iron tables and chairs on either side. It was there when we left around noon amidst the incredible roar of lawn tools that went on for more than an hour. A relief to leave. Not as sweet and restful as some have portrayed. We love to camp and stay in primitive/simple places. ie we don't need luxury, just rest and attention to fulfilling the advertised situation.

Room Tip: Number 4 could be really nice.

We always offer morning yoga class to our guests from 8 - 9:15 am, even when private programs are being held at the retreat. The walls between the guest rooms are thin and noises may be readily heard from one room to those adjacent. Vehicles are not permitted to be parked at the luggage drop off area near the hacienda. All guests and visitors are advised to park in the parking lot down below near the street level. We maintain 3 acres of grass, trees and shrubs and limit the use of motorized equipment to the hours of 11 am - 2 pm. We regret the disturbance this may cause our guests.

My husband and I run two companies and we are also parents of three girls, we really needed to get away from our hectic routine. We had a great time, we went hicking, to the pool and all the wonderful surroundings. The staff is very nice, the rooms are clean. We didn't want to leave. We will be back soon to unwind and relax.

This was a great place just to get away. The view was outstanding and pool was refreshing. Also everyone was very nice. Will stay there again!

This is an excellent, central location for getting out and about to the surrounding areas. Unfortunately, part of the decision to stay here was based on teh vegetarian cuisine - which was very lackluster. Depending on where you are from, you may call this secluded, but our room was located directly over a paved road that had occasional loud traffic (especially at dawn). Overall, very friendly and helpful staff, very clean, and very comfortable (except road noise).

Liked the set up of the hotel. The staff and owner were nice.

Pros
Beautful, secluded location
Yoga is offered (had to leave early in the morning so I didn't take a class)
Pool looked inviting (again had to leave early in the morning...)
Interesting flora with signage indicating species and origin

Cons
Long drive (but what do you expect?)
Fan only has one speed
Food was so-so and overpriced, although their mangos were some of the best I've ever had
