MIGUEL SAYS “Must try – the great, refreshing, tangy margaritas served in perfect thin-rimmed hi-ball glasses – as you’d expect, only the best from the source!”

You are never far from the sound of water here….water splashing over the many cantera fountains located throughout the grounds, restaurant and pool patios. Water splashing onto decorative tiles, always soothing and cooling even in the heat of the Jalisco sunshine.

Dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, the Hacienda of today has been restored and expanded, evoking an intimate feel with hidden rooms, wings, low-density buildings and plenty of exterior spaces.

High ceilings, terracotta tiles, frescoes in subtle tones, blue, white and yellow-tiled scenes adorning walls and patios, antique furnishings and friendly, efficient service all add up to a delightful place to stay, relax and explore the town and surrounding region.


“La Antigua Casona” is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is the gathering place for guests and the meeting place for local businessmen.

This is Tequila, world-renowned for its happiness in a bottle… World commerce comes here to sip, sample and negotiate… do not be surprised to see Tequila tastings taking place over eggs and tortillas at breakfast time.

The restaurant – with its high-domed ceilings, multiple iron chandeliers and mix of antique and modern furnishings – pulls together just the right balance of old meets new.

Contemporary local cuisine and international dishes all jostle for excellence on the varied and changing menu.

Snack menus are also available in the Sky Bar and the “Chucho Reyes” Bar.
