I've just returned from my seventh annual trip to the Hacienda, and am counting the months until next March when I can go again. I've taken several workshops, but the last two years I went just to hang out with one of the artists that teaches there every year. I don't have enough words in my vocabulary to say how beautiful, peaceful, enjoyable and inspiring the Hacienda is. Sam is a wonderful hostess who makes visitors' comfort and enjoyment her number one priority. From the minute I open the gate into the tropical paradise, I'm inspired, and the inspiration I get from a week there keeps me busy artistically for another year. The food is wonderful, the staff is superb, and Sam's home personifies the word "art". Too beautiful to explain. One has to experience this place to believe it. I guarantee anyone that one visit won't be the last. You'll want to go back again and again and again and again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This art filled Hacienda welcomes singles, couples, small groups for workshops. It is located in Colonia Versalles, a typical upscale Mexican neighborhood that affords visitors a chance to experience the charm of daily life in old Mexico. You will find cobbled streets, where tortillerias and markets cater to the locals rather than the tourists... craft shops, cantinas, night life and adventure. Hacienda Mosaico is ideal for small retreats and intimate parties as well as a quiet respite from the busy world. A tranquil destination in a tropical environment for adults. ... more less
