Mexico city, Mexico
June 24, 2005
This is a medieval experience, and so is the furniture of the rooms. They are big but not luxurious. This is a place to enjoy the solitude and views, and also to relax and have a quiet time away from the city. There are no TVs or radios on the rooms, nor telephones; you are paying for the ambience, a quiet one.
The price per room is 650 pesos per night (June 2005), not including meals, but there are some packages that include just breakfast.
The place is so wonderful that on certain nights, they organize theme evenings with customs and medieval musicians, and they will light the underground passages in a way to make it more mysterious and, to a point, ghostly, while throwing a candle-lit dinner in the magnificent halls. One of the attractions is the scary tour at midnight with actors telling ghost stories and some other trying to scare you.
During the day, you have the grounds of the old hacienda to stroll at your will, a nice place to have a drink (they operate a bar and a restaurant on site).
