“Incredible experience!”
Reviewed 17 December 2011

Mike, Irma and Tatiana are incredible! Our experience was wonderful. Beautiful room, amazing staff and an awesome guided experience into the mountains!

From the moment we arrived we felt like we were staying with family. Their warm staff and general happiness for life is contagious. Thank you so much!

It makes no sense to stay anywhere else. The location is absolutely perfect for daily walks through the romantic zone of old town and is only a few blocks from the beach. Why trap yourself in an all inclusive resort when you can actually enjoy the city you are visiting? The proximity to great restaurants, night life, and the Malecon is perfect. Add to that the impeccable room quality and service and this is a no brainer. One thing I must add is the level of trust in the safety of your belongings while staying here. One day I accidentally left our safe open with my wife's wallet in full view which contained a significant sum of cash. We were gone for several hours. Our room received maid service during that time and no items whatsoever were touched. I have stayed in many hotels over the years and I can confidently say that this is the only place I can or ever have trusted the safety of my belongings. You can't put a price on that...but if you did, that price would be the cost of a nights stay. Well worth it I say. And finally, we will be back to stay again next month. What else can I say?

Lovely stay at the Hacienda Alemana. Transferred from one of the big empty mega-resorts outside the city and felt instantly at home; I called late early evening, they said come over, took me to my sweet little suite and said, Relax. No check-in, no credit cards, no worry - just relax. Doesnt get better. Went down a little later for a german beer and some weinerschnitzel, which was both good and a kick to have in PV.

The Hacienda is in the heart of the Zona Romantica - close to everything - and feels like a true hacienda with charming and artfully designed rooms this way and that, all surrounding a beautiful little courtyard and pool. There are huge groupings of orchids everywhere - they love the place too. Then there's Mike and Irma - mix German hospitality and Latin style and grace - and you really can't find better hosts, or a better place to stay.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor and overlook the courtyard pool.

We've spent my girlfriend and I 5 nights by Irma and Mike : our stay in the Hacienda Alemana was just perfect. The room was lovely : king size bed, calm, well decorated, big shower and view on the garden. Every morning you have a home made breakfast you share with Irma and Mike : the best ones during our whole vacation in Mexico.
Thanks so much to Irma and Mike for their hospitality and friendliness : you made our stay perfect.

we had a lovely time at this small hotel. we traveled in low season and because of that had breakfast in mike and irma's home. they could not have been nicer - gracious, kind, humorous, comfortable. our room was very comfortable and we slept well in the king sized bed. the hotel itself is lovely, an oasis in the old town and convenient to everthing we wanted to do. enjoyed late afternoons in the pool. wanda, their dog, always had a comment for us but, clearly, she prefers men. the german restaurant, too, is excellent and dinner was served with a bowl of outstanding cabbage. all of the staff were gracious and the housekeeping was excellent. i really felt as if i did not need to lock the door. i don't think we could have found a better place to stay. thank you so much, mike and irma.

Staying at Hacienda Alemana is like staying with family or friends. Mike and Irma go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and interesting. This small boutique hotel is really lovely and one of the best we have stayed in. We booked a junior suite and were really impressed with the interior design and comfort and cleanliness.We also got a 40% discount because it was low season so that meant it was really good value. The pool and courtyard area are fantastic-a real sanctuary away from the town centre and beach. As others have mentioned, it is really well located -close to beaches and markets but far enough away to feel like you are staying in a real town and not a tourist trap.We also highly recommend the restaurant -we had our best meals there. We would love to return some day and highly recommend this experience over a stay at a resort.

Mike is very centered on offering value through incredible service. I had somewhat unorthodox check-in, check out requirements and he accommodated me 100%. The place itself is gorgeous and as solidly built as any place I've ever stayed in Mexico - you will be surprised how positively that will affect your sense of comfort and "gemuetlichkeit".

I'll be back...
