We visited San Miguel in March and stayed at Quinta Recreo. After a very long journey from France it was like finding a little piece of paradise. It is the perfect spot to wind down, situated as it is within walking distance of the town centre but hidden away in a very quiet little spot.
We stayed in one of the eight casitas owned and run by Ildiko and Federico. They themselves are absolutely charming, helpful and very efficient in every way. We were given a most helpful file containing information about museums, restaurants etc. They were always on hand to ensure that you were getting the best out of your holiday.
Each casita has it's own patio screened by masses of bougainvilleas and other exotic plants. We stayed in a large studio which was supplied with everything you could possibly need. It was kept spotlessly clean by one of the very discreet staff and the gardens were also kept very neat and tidy.
Every morning we would sit on our patio and watch humming birds within feet of us drinking their fill of the nectar. Overhead were lots of other birds including egrets who were busy all the time, collecting material for their nests. In fact the only noise we heard was the sound of the birds singing, (apart from the occasional noise of firecrackers being let off somewhere to celebrate something!)
We met other guests who were all making return visits to Quinta Recreo. In fact if we ever get back to San Miguel we would head straight back there too.
I really recommend this delightful place.
