“Will definitely return again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

Wonderful staff who are super helpful, esp with my difficult food allergies. Beautiful swimming pools and surrounds. Lots of fun activities and nothing is a problem. Heaven. We plan to return next year.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay from the beginning until the end. Hacienda San Rafael is such a beautiful, warm and welcoming place as well as being stylish and super tranquil. The staff and owners made us feel immediately at home. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the casitas which took our breaths away and we loved the private covered space near the pool to while the afternoon away with a gin and tonic or 2..., brought to us by ever smiling staff.
Dinner was also a special experience, very good quality indeed, a very tasty 3-course menu, our compliments to the chef.
Tim and Anthony, thank you very much once again, you'd be hard pressed to find a pair of nicer people than you two!

We recently attended a friend's wedding and stayed here for two nights. The food and wine were excellent and the tranquil setting was lovely you really do feel like there's no-one around. The room was very comfortable and with a choice of three pools there is always a quiet spot to relax and unwind.

We went here to switch off and this is exactly what we were able to do. The location is amazing and everything you need is taken care of. The villas around the Hacienda are discreetly located so that you feel you're the only people there. The food is delicious and the wine selection goes very well with everything served. The staff are friendly but discrete - everything you want is taken care of so easily & with ease - the service is seamless. The Reid family make you feel very welcome and add the family touch to the experience. I Could not recommend it more.

Room was very comfortable (we stayed in a Casita). Service unobtrusive and pleasant. Food and wine were very good indeed. We couldn't recommend it more highly. The Hacienda is in the countryside and you can walk for miles if you can cope with the heat! G & I

We loved the four nights we spent at the Hacienda, it's rustic luxury is second to none. The food and wine is all delicious and the service impeccable. It's a very short flight from London, very easy with two small children. We booked into the casita, which was perfect as it gave us some privacy from our children who slept in the living room. The provided us ith cots, sheets, blankets and high chairs.

Room Tip: The casitas with shared pool are the best!

It was hard to leave the Hacienda as it's one of the most beautiful and charming places we've stayed at. It was supposed to be a treat but exceeded all expectations.. An old converted olive oil factory thoughtfully done up with good planning and good taste. Wonderful regional planting around the grounds that are open to rolling fields that can be glimpsed from the inner courtyards and windows. We all slept so well in the comfortable beds and high vaulted rooms, the youngest of us was particularly happy with her bed on the mezzanine. And the service from the moment we arrived (hot, dusty and dishevelled, and greeted with ice cold lemonade) was faultless, not too intense but went out of their way on a number of occasions (including one of the staff going out of their way to pass by a pharmacy for us so that we wouldn't have to interrupt our day!). There's also a nice balance between being definitely quite grown up, but welcoming children - I wouldn't say it was a family destination in terms of any specific provision for kids, but our daughter loved it and because there are options of a to go including a couple of pools we always felt there was enough room on the site to accommodate everyone whatever kind of day they wanted to have. We were really impressed on all counts and look forward to returning one day...
