The long, winding road of questionable integrity that must be travelled to reach the Hacienda Manteles should not deter a guest from staying at this charming property. From the minute we arrived we felt relaxed and welcome. The gracious host and staff members were very friendly and helpful. The lovely rooms and common areas are tastefully decorated in a traditional rustic and modern fusion style. We particularly enjoyed the comfortable seating area with a fireplace outside our room that allowed us to socialize with new friends we met on our tour. There were varied opinions on the dinner offerings the night we were there, but breakfast was highly received. Our only regret, alas one of which the Hacienda Manteles has no control, was that it was overcast during our entire stay and we knew that we were missing potentially spectacular views of the adjacent volcano. We would have loved to been able to stay longer and explore this very interesting region and hope to return for a longer stay in the future.
