Site of a Destination Wedding
Reviewed 2 months ago

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.

Beautiful Christmas getaway
Reviewed 5 months ago

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.

The most gorgeous South American place that I've ever seen.This magnificent 1529 hacienda has been many things to many people in its past life and is still going strong! All employees (from the groundkeepers all the way up) were courteous, polite, and willing to assist. The restaurant staff went above and beyond, preparing awesome, healthy, tasty, vegan meals for our group of 7. The grounds were spectacular, beautiful, and well maintained with species of flowers, plants, & old trees. There's something unique, beautiful, and a surprise to see around every turn, whether you're inside or outside. I would highly encourage you, if you are interested in architecture, botany, conservation, interior design/decor, antiques, photography, or plein air painting, that you put this place first on your list to visit. It's also a great place to just relax, have a romantic evening, a wedding, or some other luxurious adventure. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and beautiful. Many amenities such as a spa, swimming pool, full bar, wifi, etc. Last, but not least, Juan Fenton, is a great host!

Gorgeous place, but...

Went there looking for a place for a wedding, the hotel is absolutely beautiful, very well maintained, has many corners and areas for private parties. Took a tour of the Hacienda which was very enjoyable and educational.
The only problem we encountered was the food, it does not match the quality of the hotel. We ate at the restaurant and were disappointed plus the service was not the best. We all agreed that a great part of a wedding is the food and they couldn’t do that to our guests.
I will love to go back to the hacienda with the hopes that they change chefs and if possible make their menu a little more traditional Mexican and less gourmet.

Incredible ... a must visit when in Mexico near Mexico city

I was fortunate last fall to find this Hacienda on line. From the moment we arrived we were transported back in time to this beautiful Hacienda-sugar mill transformed into a luxury hotel 30 minutes south of Cuernavaca or about 2 hours south of MÉXICO city. We had the good fortune to run into the owner Juan Fenton who shared some of the interesting history of the Hacienda with us.

There are not enough compliments for this Hacienda. Many of the old buildings have been renovated into beautiful bedrooms, dining rooms, and the main building with a wine cellar, additional bedrooms, and the reception.

The bedrooms are breathtaking. I think they used to be part of an old stable and have been converted into bedrooms with exposed walls and a walk down bathroom ensuite. We stayed in both the “Carla” and the “Mandarino” and both were excellent. The beds were extremely comfortable as were the pillows. There was an eye to derail right down to the furnishings including some beautiful lamps.

The restaurant is simply outstanding. I’ve been travelling to MÉXICO on business and for pleasure for over 35 years and no other place has had it All. The service was excellent, the menu diverse, the food some of the best I have ever had, and a kitchen more than willing to make whatever special request a guest has. (Mine was fresh green salsa ..salsa verde crudo)..fantastic! Great selection of wines and I have to mention the micro brewery beer Allende which my husband was so happy to find here...so far from San Miguel de Allende...turns out it’s the owners favourite as well. Special thanks to Carlos the maître’d who took outstanding care of us

The dining room over looks a stunningly beautiful pool and backdrop of hundred feet tall palm trees. In the back patio mango trees surround the outside eating area.

Almost forgot to mention the spa...OMG wow it not only is a beautiful setting but the massages are to die for! Many thanks to Veronica, Giovana, and Rocio whose massages were absolutely fantastic!

In the back there is a tennis court and another court for pickle ball? There is also an open lawn for volley ball

There is horseback riding through the grounds or outside the Hacienda passing by sugar cane fields, the old aqueduct, organic lime tree fields.

There are lots of hidden gems to discover, the waterfall, the hidden bar and jacuzzi, the reflecting pond, the reading room and library....the list goes on and n. And all of this surrounded by lush foliage.

Also have to mention we bought a romantic package this past visit. What a special day it was .. massages , followed by a lovely dinner in the wine cellar, followed by a wonderful surprise and Carlos was amazing. His service and warm conversation made the evening even better. Last but not least was the trio which played live music ... could not have been better.

The Hacienda is super safe and such a peaceful place.. we didn’t want to leave

I can’t recommend any place as highly as this!

We can’t wait to go back and spend some true relax time! Ojalá sea muy pronto la próxima visita!
