How to Get There
We went there for a relaxing family weekend and, although the rooms are beautiful, one can feel the history and the staff is very friendly, we were a little bit disappointed.
The room, although beautiful and big did not have internet and the jacuzzi was not working. Every morning, at 8am, staff would chat just under our window, waking us up.
The hacienda is beautiful and there are lots of hidden spots, however, walking the property, I was disappointed at how it was maintained. You could see trash in a lot of places, and as soon as you would wander off the main road, the gardens were dirty and unorganized.
The staff was very friendly but the food just average and the pool was dirty with murky water.
Overall it was not a bad stay, it just didn't meet our expectations, especially considering the price.
We came to Mexico City for our friend’s destination wedding. They said the location is two and half hours south of the City, but not to worry as they would have a shuttle take the guests out to the Hacienda San Gabriel, in the Cuernavaca area. On the day of travel, we boarded the shuttle for the transport to the Hacienda. It is actually located 35 minutes south of Cuernavaca in Amacuzac, Morelos.
The Hacienda was a sugar cane plantation and it still grows sugar cane as evidenced from the canes in the fields on this large property. But the main part of Hacienda is beautiful from the rooms, swimming pools, restaurant and the grounds. Our friends had a pre-wedding reception party at the bar/pool area for the guests. The next day, the wedding was held in a large lawn area that was beautifully set-up. After the wedding the guests walked to the waterfall area for the reception. Then we all proceeded t to the restaurant for the dinner/reception. It was a beautiful wedding event at the Hacienda all around.
For amenities, we did horseback riding, which was an hour ride guide by a vaquero, though the Hacienda property. You can swim, play tennis, go to the spa and play billiards. The restaurant offers a breakfast buffet and a set menu at the patio area. There was free wi-fi, but it was limited to the area around the hotel office and restaurant. Due to the stone walls, you cannot pick-up wi-fi from your room. Wished there were routers in the rooms.
It was nice experience being in a lovely Hacienda. Beautiful grounds and friendly service.
We stayed here for Christmas Eve and Christmas day. It was indeed a beautiful getaway from the city. I really enjoyed the peaceful gardens and pool, there are beautiful corners everywhere where you can take a book or just relax.
We had a massage at the spa (Experiencia Elementos) and it was delicious, Rocio and Giovana were very professional and we ended from there really happy and relaxed. The spa is very well cared and pretty.
At the restaurant we had mixed experiences with a couple of big flaws. Service very friendly, but usually slow. Damaris, Juan Carlos and Arturo were our waiters almost always and they provided a very nice service, but it looks like at the kitchen things were really slow. Also I had to return a ceviche I ordered because it was not good at all, fish was not fresh, it was fishy and I couldn't eat it. However they didn't charge it.
Christmas dinner was perfect, even if we didn't have all the menu, salad and dessert were great.
I would like also to see an upgrade to the rooms, they could keep the essence of being an old place but modernizing some furnishings and bathrooms. And also better illumination.
Overall, we had a very nice Christmas getaway! This is an amazing place and could certainly do it better.
