I went here with my son, 22, after a business conference in Mexico City. It's an unbelievably beautiful place, with great views, an amazing spa, and wonderful food and rooms, all under the direction of the owner, Señora Monica. Walking the grounds or lying in a hammock, it's a very peaceful place. There are peacocks roaming the ground. It's historic... More

The food at the hotel was delicious, especially the grilled meal served al fresco in the patio in the evening. The desserts are wonderful too! Great service and a tranquil, historic setting!

This is a great place for lunch. The grounds are beautiful and the food was perfect. Friends tell me the rooms are very nice too. It's a great day trip from Guadalajara or Tequila. It's just a few miles from Teuchitlán and the Guachimontones.

I coordinated a conference last weekend in Hacienda el Carmen. The Hacienda dates back from 1700s and it still maintains the original charm. We had about 30-35 people staying at the Hacienda and other conference attendees joined during the day. The Facilities are beautiful and each room is unique and charming. The staff at the hacienda worked very hard to... More

I try to stay here every time I come to this area about once per month. Delightful, relaxing, excellent food. Spacious rooms, impeccable grounds, good security. Robes and slippers, small lake, unbelievable spa. Try their tequila when you first arrive.
