We exchanged through RCI to this resort. We were in Room 29 at the end of the building. It was OK, but not what we expected from an RCI exchange. We've stayed all over Mexico & Europe & this hotel would rate a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. We basically judge a place on the room and not the amenities as we don't hang around the hotel/resort. Villa de la Plata rooms need a facelift. The room we had was good size (I BR/2baths/Kitchen) but not very clean, especially the kitchen. The bed & couches were very hard. We had 2 small balconies and they brought in new wrought iron chairs for one of the balconies which were the most comfortable furniture in the unit. The kitchen had a microwave/toaster but we didn't use them. The stove worked as opposed to another reviewer who said theirs didn't. We had lots of ants that came out at night in the kiltchen, but that wasn't an issue for us since we didn't cook at night.
The onsite restaurant was fine. The grounds were so-so as far as plants, but needed some TLC. They were painting some of the exterior. It's located on a mountain road with no sidewalks about 5 miles from town; it would be dangerous to try to walk. It's right on the bus route so that was convenient or you could catch a taxi going by or have the desk call one for you. There was a small tienda across the road to pick up some basics for food, if you didn't want to carry it back from town. One note to those who don't speak any Spanish....there was no one there duing our visit who did speak English so that could be a problem. Net net, we would stay somewhere else, if we returned to Guanajuato.
