First-class hotel consisting of villa-style colonial houses within extensive gardens of cypresses and classical statues, with hilltop views of Morelia.

The Villa Montaña is a first class hotel overlooking Morelia from a hill top. The hotel consists of a series of cottage-style colonial houses interlinked by a series of tiled paths and bridges within extensive leafy gardens dotted with waterfalls, cypresses and statues.

There is a medium-sized heated pool with a terrace and view over the city. Rooms, housed within the terracotta villas scattered throughout the grounds, are elegantly decorated with antique-looking heavy wooden furniture and tiled floors. The hillside location of the hotel means that there are many different levels which, added to the classical garden setting, give a feeling of privacy, elegance and romance.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: The totality of it. Seeing different parts of the country. The mixture of food. ruins and art was just about spot on.

    KJ, Harlow
  • It is very difficult as pretty well everything was memorable, but if I have to pick something, then the boat trip along the river to Yaxchilan takes some beating. Weather, scenery, wildlife, excitement of a fast boat, and the archaeological surprises at the end ….

    RB, Eastleigh
  • Most memorable experience: The friendliness of the Mexican people

    GW Chertsey
  • 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.

  • We liked the variety of our trip -  ancient Mayan ruins, real Mexican towns and people, and beautiful beaches. It was wonderful to access Chichen Itza from the grounds of Mayaland Resort and get in there early and before it was too hot without any crowds. We loved swimming in Dzitnup Cenote.

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.

At first sight the hotel looks like a mini village with cottages of different shapes and sizes. The rooms, bathrooms and verandas are very spacious and some have open fireplaces, adding a welcoming feel. I especially enjoyed the terrace with a swimming pool looking out over the extensive gardens and the city of Morelia.
