Hacienda La Magdalena is a very small boutique hotel (we were the only guests). The hotel is an old hacienda just outside the urban area, convenient yet tranquil. Their big calling card is their spa. Excellent massages and I ought to know since I get two a week for therapy. The only surprise, beyond the birthday surprise, was how good the food was.

Room Tip: Small hotel, so they´re probably all good rooms.

Our family just returned from a 7 day stay at Hacienda La Magdalena- it was our first trip together to Mexico and my wife and I brought our 2.5 year old son. There are plenty of places to get groceries and do laundry nearby. The hotel is about a 40 minute drive from Mercado Libertad and the Zoo. Trompo Magico is about 25 mins away and we had a great time there with our son.

The hacienda is large, beautiful, and charming- you can have a great time just relaxing in your room and walking around the property. There are lots of places to walk and explore, including a few small creeks and ponds. We saw ducks and rabbits every day on the property and it's refreshing to wake, step outside, and hear the chirping from all the birds at the hacienda. The wife and I took advantage of the spa and it was great. I accidently fell asleep 30 minutes past my appointment and they politely got me up :)

The staff and their attention to us was our favorite part of the experience. Everybody seemed very happy to be there and genuinely wanted us to have a great time. The chefs prepared excellent food for us, even asking ahead of time what we'd be interested in and personalizing our meals. We constantly needed milk for our young son and since the rooms don't have refrigerators, they helped accommodate us by getting us milk when needed, even at late hours. They helped us with directions, with understanding culture in Guadalajara, and we just had a great time talking on a friendly level with everyone. My wife is a native Spanish speaker but I am not very good... but everyone was patient and worked with me when I had difficulties. It was sad leaving this morning- I've stayed at a lot of hotels and the personal service we got made Ritz-Carlton look like a Motel 6.

To me, it was great value for the money. We will be returning for sure- hopefully once a year as a new family tradition.

Hacienda la Magdalena was the perfect picturesque setting for our wedding. The hacienda is absolutely beautiful and relaxing. The hacienda grounds are well maintained and the hotel itself has an understated elegance. Our guests were impressed with the hacienda and found the rooms to be spacious and very comfortable. The service was also great; all employees were very attentive to our needs. A very special thank you to Federico, the hacienda night watch, who spent very late nights with us. He was very attentive and kind to all of us and took time to tell us about the hacienda’s history. Breakfast every morning was delicious, not to mention their café de hoya! We even got to experience the Father’s Day brunch and it was an experience in itself. The brunch buffet was delicious and they had live entertainment, including ballet folklorico and horseback riding.
Organizing a destination wedding can be very daunting but we’re so glad we did it. Our guests enjoyed the atmosphere, location and food. Perla was easy to work with and always responded to our questions and concerns.

Room Tip: All the rooms were different and beautiful. Any room chosen will be an experience.

We hosted a wedding celebration at Hacienda La Magdalena - the Hacienda's event spaces are beautiful and the event coordinator Perla is very professional and easy to work with. Our guests raved about the service, food and location. We would highly recommend hosting a destination wedding at Hacienda La Magdalena!
