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.
