“Gracious Hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2010

I went with my Mom to the cooking school they have at this B&B and they are the most gracious hosts. The food is excellent, the yard is beautiful for hanging out and relaxing, the facility is comfortable and beautiful and the staff keeps the place extremely clean. It's within very comfortable walking distance to the center of town, while being just a few blocks up the hill it allows you the view of downtown from the balcony to enjoy fireworks....which seem to happen often with many celebrations as part of their culture.
Besides from the AWESOME cooking program they also offer bike vacations.

Cindy & I escaped for a 4 night girl-friends getaway to San Miguel de Allende. I found Arcos del Atascadero on the internet and loved the web site lay out, colors, and depiction of the B&B. I verified by reading reviews on Trip Advisor.

It is located by Los Arcos, up an incline from the city center. It is a bit of a walk, which we enjoyed most of the time. Wear sensible shoes (tennis) because the streets are cobblestones and can be slippery when wet. We took a taxi when it was rainy. The location affords a lovely panoramic view over the city, when you climb to the crow's nest atop the building.

Patricia and Roberto invited us to their family party when we arrived ! How is THAT for hospitality? They answered all of our many questions, and had reference information for us in the rooms. We saw all of the rooms(our room was Jazmin and our only suggestion would be to install brighter lights), and thoroughly enjoyed a 1/2 day special cooking class put on just for us, as we are both travel agents, and wanted to sample everything. The gardens are lush, and full of edibles such as citrus, passion fruit, hojo santa and guava. I would recommend people to partake in their 6 night Mexican Cooking Vacation.

I had a terrific massage in the specially designated massage studio...the only thing I didn't do was swim in the outdoor heated pool. The entire experience was excellent. I felt safe and secure, was treated with friendliness yet could lounge in the living area and gardens without interruptions. I will stay there again.

Tip: They currently use Pay Pal to accept credit card payments. I easily paid my deposit from home on Pay Pal, but while in Mexico, I ran into a brick wall with Pay Pal when I tried to pay the higher final bill. This was because I was not "a verified" user with Pay Pal. I had to call home, get my banking info, submit that to PP...to be told it would be 2-4 business days to verify. So, we ended up getting cash at an ATM to pay up. If you plan to use a credit card , be sure you are a verified user with Pay Pal before you travel.

A beautiful old mansion converted and remodeled into a B&B. The rooms are large with private baths and very tastefully decorated. The gourmet breakfasts with the owner were a source of great information about SMA.

We highly recommend this B&B!

This lovely B&B is quiet and relaxing yet within easy walking distance to the jardin. The meals are incredible and Patricia is the perfect hostess. As a solo traveler, I felt completely safe here. The rooms are comfortable and clean. I will always stay here when visiting San Miguel.

If you are interested in cooking classes, Patricia's ARE NOT to be missed. Her recipies are delicious - she covers the diversity of mexican cooking, as well as the history, interlaced with cooking phrases and stories. In addition, learning tricks from Inez and Maria was great fun. They were very patient with me as I kept making mistakes while learning to fry tortillia's.

I highly recommend this B&B. Spent a week in Vista room and the view is just spectacular. Very homey touch, felt like I spent a holiday with old friends. The place is very relaxing and the decor is fantastic. Breakfasts are healthy and varied. Cactus leaf juice is a must - try! Not to be missed.

This is surely one of the best lodging experiences we have ever had. Such a tranquil ambiance...so relaxing. LOVED the pool, the gardens, the breakfasts, and mostly...the service. Patricia is a wonderful host and made us feel like family. Thank you so much.
