French-style hillside hotel with a mixture of ornamental European-style rooms and others with traditionally Mexican décor.

This French-style Quinta Las Acacias hotel is situated on a hillside overlooking stunning Guanajuato, 20 minutes' walk from the town centre. Some rooms and public areas are decorated in rather plush fashion, reminiscent of a European country house interior, and others take their cues from Mexican tradition. Shuttered windows look out over the surrounding mountains or the garden.

There is a plunge pool and an open-air Jacuzzi, a terrace ideal for relaxing in the sunshine, and a restaurant serving a mixture of Mexican and European fare.

What our clients say

  • Highlights: Boat trip to Yaxchilan - jungle and ruins were great.  Gardens and pool at Hacienda Chichen were lovely. Cuernavaca was a lovely town and we enjoyed Robert Brady museum….San Cristobal - also lovely”

  • There were many highlights: the beautiful beach on our first morning in Cancun, the boat ride among the flamingos at Celestun, the sight of the Magicians Pyramid at Uxmal and the climb up the Great Pyramid there ( although not the descent, which was very vertiginous!). We loved the city of Merida, and having a Sunday at leisure there was very well planned by Sophie. We walked the Paseo de Montejo, open only to bikes and pedestrians, visited the Museum of Anthropology, then had a late lunch in Santa Lucia park watching the locals dancing. Later we watched them again in the evening dancing opposite the Cathedral in Plaza Mayor. Great fun, we loved it all. We also has a fantastic visit to Ek Balam on our way to Tulum, which was one on our Mayan Archeological highlights.

  • Most memorable experience: Going by fast boat on Usumcinta river to Yaxchilan where howler monkeys and a deserted site made an unforgettable impression. I could go on and on – it was all memorable!

  • Highlights?: Too many! Probably seeing Uxmal, the Tiger Egret, swimming in Cenotes (various), Chichen-Itza at dawn and visiting Frida Kahlo's house.

  • The train from El Fuerte to Divisidero was great - good views with the ability to take photographs through open windows, good food, comfortable seats.

    JDL, St Neots
  • "While is difficult to find the better part, staying in the Hacienda Chichen Resort was magical, seen the Toh bird in Tanka was wonderful, as was swimming in the cenotes there and in Chichen Itza."

Our expert's view

Ben Line
Ben Line - Travel Expert

Ben fell in love with Latin America on a six month backpacking trip from Colombia to Mexico in 1995. Since then he has explored most of South America, including living in Peru for a year. He is now Head of Sales.

This friendly and restful place, like a very upmarket B&B, came as a nice surprise after a day exploring the busy town. The roof terrace with its plunge pool and Jacuzzi is an excellent place to unwind after a busy day in Guanajuato.
