Posada de las Flores Loreto
Posada de las Flores is a delightful, authentic colonial-style hotel right in the centre of unspoilt Loreto
This property is a beautifully converted colonial mansion, located on the main square of Loreto. The building, pained a dusky pink, is most striking, and the walls within are also awash with the warm ochres of the Mexican palette. The air-conditioned guest rooms (go for a suite, they are large and airy and worth the extra), each named after a flower, are furnished with hand-crafted dark wood furniture and a sprinkling of antiques, which also embellish the nooks, crannies and stairways of the unreconstructed house.
Also in tune with the colonial style is the attractive ornamental courtyard, featuring exotic plants and stone fountains. Don’t miss the rooftop garden terrace, where you’ll find the restaurant where you can enjoy breakfast, and a stunning glass-bottomed swimming pool.
What our clients say
Most memorable aspect: “All the visits to temples and pyramids. With very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant guidesJB Wandsworth
Most memorable experiences: "Visiting our parents' house in Lomas de Chapultepec. Francisco persuaded the owners that we were genuine, which was quite an achievement. In sightseeing terms it is difficult to compare, for instance, the domestic and artistic life of Frieda Kahlo with the pyramids of Teotihuacan! We chose to go to all the places on our itinerary and all of them were memorable. Perhaps Monte Alban was the most mind blowing because I had no particular expectations of it, unlike Chichen Itza of which I had seen many pictures."HG, Sherborne
Highlight: The Visit to Chichen ItzaJL, London
"Most memorable aspects were all the archaeological sites, which we enjoyed immensely. On the whole, we found local people very kind and helpful."DC, Nottingham
Whale watching in San Jose Del CaboCS, Epsom
