I felt the most relaxed I've ever been after an hour long massage and a facial. The facilities are the right kind of kitschy and fun, the food was really good as well - I had breakfast and dinner. Overall it was an awesome time and I look forward to coming back soon. Plus: conveniently close to the city!!

The treatments and the spa were great, but... the first nigh we could not sleep because of the loud music and the second night barking dogs kept us awake! The Temazcal experience was particularly enjoyable.

It was a big disappointment. The first day we had to shower with cold water. The next day we talked to reception and sent us a maintenance person to fix the problem. When we got back from breakfast they claimed that water was coming out fine, which wasn't. We had to go with the maintenance person and open the shower...

We took a girls trip and it was truly amazing. The manager Fernando went over board trying to accommodate 5 crazy ladies.

This is a beautiful quaint gem on lake Chapala. The rooms are all well appointed and the service was incredible. The restaurant manager, Daniel, greeted us and offered us a special romantic table in a private part of the restaurant. The food was great as was the presentation. This is a must do if you are in the Guadalajara area....

Visited as a couples weekend getaway. Close enough to Guadalajara for a fast transport, but far enough to feel the peace and quiet of the outdoors.
