Reviewed 8 August 2014

Whether we were discovering the amazing art, enjoying the scrumptious food, exploring the neighborhood or lounging in the peaceful garden, we felt pampered and relaxed at every turn. The rooms were beautiful and interesting and exuded the best of Mexico, the staff was attentive and kind and the interior had a story to tell in every nook and corner. It felt like home but with a plethora of perks! I can't wait to go back!

Breath-taking ! On the edge of a village square, the insides and outsides of La Mancha oozes Mexico. Beautifully appointed (like being in a museum . . . and ask for the story of each piece because there IS one to hear) and gracefully designed, we really enjoyed our time here. There are private nooks for quiet reading and larger rooms for group engagement; the pools, the greenery . . . gorgeous. The service of the 'chefs' and house staff was impeccable, and the food was fabulous! Fresh and homemade! We had the special opportunity to see some of the area with Carol, who shared the beauty of the surrounding areas . . . so much to see and do. Visit ! You will love it too!

La Mancha Cuernavaca is no commonplace B&B. It's pure enchantment, that's what it is!
Upon entering, we caught our breath at the gorgeous interior, the eclectic artwork, the magical guest rooms, each with private bath, and balcony overlooking the exquisite garden and pool. Yet it felt like home, thanks to Carol, the warmly welcoming and gracious proprietress.
La Mancha is perfect for a girls' getaway, perhaps looking for a marvelous lifestyle change with spa treatments, or a relaxing interlude from busy lives. We enjoyed sumptuous meals in the festive dining area and divine margaritas poolside. We also indulged in superb shopping in Cuernavaca and Tepoztlan! Oh, I can't forget Petunia, the guard burro near the front entrance! Truly unforgettable...I never wanted to leave!

I stayed with a friend at La Mancha during May of 2014 for about one week. Stepping behind the gates of the hotel is akin to entering a warm and hospitable art gallery! From the moment we arrived, hospitality was everywhere; from the food to the inviting decor to the cheery greetings from the hotel owner and staff! We enjoyed a wonderful Mexican breakfast every morning; locally-grown fruit, fresh juice and eggs a-la-many-Mexican styles!
The hotel is like a special oasis, but outside the walls, and under the direction of the owner, Carol Hopkins, we were able to tour the city, learn of it's history, visit the enormous "farmer's market", see important points of art and stop for lunch, at her suggestion, at significant and classic restaurants. Eating under the tree root-lined roof where Cortez once lived and dining where famous artists and dignitaries once were....was a special treat! There is much to see and do in Cuernavaca....so I will return again to the secure confines of La Mancha and pursue my adventures in Cuernacaca....A satisfied traveler!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are decorated with a different and colorful Mexican motif....all unique and private...

I was fortunate to have a friend recommend this charming hotel/B&B in Cuernavaca in the Mexican state of Morelos. I visited in early May 2014 and stayed for nearly a week. The entire week was extremely enjoyable. The La Mancha property itself is across the street from a beautiful park with many trees. La Mancha is a stone-walled and iron-fenced property that is lush with vegetation and fruit trees, a swimming pool, a hot tub, exercise room, and the three-level home structure itself. My bedroom, on the upper level, was very spacious with a large bed, large closet, and comfortable furniture. It also had a private bathroom with full tub and shower. The bedroom overlooked the rear yard and pool area.

Carol Hopkins, the American proprietor, has been restoring and rebuilding this property for nearly 20 years. She lives on the property along with her three dogs, a cat and Petunia, a friendly burro. Carol is an icon within this very close and friendly neighborhood. She has furnished the house with many pieces of art, Mexican furniture and rugs. The house feels like a home. Carol is very familiar with most popular attractions in Cuernavaca, as well as the surrounding area of Morelos State. Be sure and ask her about the many nearby areas of very interesting archeological ruins and about the nearby quaint Mexican towns and villages. For the early risers, Popocatepetl, the famous, active volcano outside of Mexico City can be viewed with the rising sun behind it from the street in front of La Mancha.

An excellent breakfast typically included eggs, prepared in various Mexican styles, freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit, and bread. The breakfast was prepared by Victoria, a delightful Mexican lady from the neighborhood.

This property is highly recommended as a place for rest and relaxation, as well as a base for exploring Morelos.

I had the pleasure of spending a week at La Mancha in January, 2014. This unique B & B is a beautifully decorated home, full of vibrant colors and Mexican art and artifacts. The grounds are beautiful as well. The fabulous food is prepared with fresh, local ingredients by wonderful Victoria, who is a talented and competent chef. La Mancha is located across the street from the colonia square, which is surrounded by small local shops and businesses. The Sunday morning "mercado" is not to be missed. This lovely B & B is nestled in an authentic neighborhood, within walking distance of several larger resort hotels, which are fun to visit for a drink and appetizer.
(You won't want to miss a meal at La Mancha!). I look forward to my next visit to La Mancha and highly recommend it.
