The gardens are breathtaking, the rooms are tastefully decorated with time pieces, all amenities are nailed to perfection. My girlfriends and I went to the hacienda for a one night stay, and loved...

This place is a beautiful and a step back in time. We went on an anniversary weekend. Stayed there for three nights in the room named Don Benigno, every room has a different name.

Wow what a wonderful place. As we checked in we were greeted with tequila and a very warm welcome. The grounds were beautiful and immaculate. It was just like stepping back in time during the Hacienda era. My room was beautiful and spacious. Wine, fruit, nuts and water was another welcome basket. The meals were delicious and the staff could... More

We stopped at Hacienda El Carmen for lunch after Guanchimontones ruins. Our only disappointment was that our private guide either did not know or did not care that the restaurant would not be open until 2:00 PM, so we spent nearly 45 minutes looking at the beautiful property, when what we really wanted was a quick meal and continue on...
