This place was amazing! Everything about the hacienda was top notch.
A little background. I was driving from Gracias, Honduras to Coapn. It was late in the day and the sun had already gone down. The party of four that I was part of was hungry, but decided to head to the hacidneda before getting some dinner. As soon as we pulled in there were several gentlemen ready and waiting for us to take our bags to the room. I told them we were hungry and we planned on just checking in and heading back into town for dinner. They told us, "not to worry, we have dinner waiting for you." This was just the first thing that really made me fell at home there. After a VERY delicious dinner of local cuisine we were ready to relax get to our rooms. It started to sprinkle a little rain on us, as soon as one of the staff noticed she ran to get us each some umbrellas.
The hospitality there was over the roof! The staff really made me and the members of my party really feel like it was home. I cant say enough about it.
The rooms were quaint and efficient. Everything on the property was low light and low key. I really enjoyed the ambiance they provided. There was hot water on demand it filtered water in the room. There is no A/C but not needed at all! I actually had to use my blanket.
The view was one of the best I have ever seen. You get a great view of the mountains, the town, and some of the Mayan Ruins!
Everything is relatively close, the towns cobble stone streets slow things down but nothing was far.
As for noise...there is non, other than the sounds of nature.
Our couple of days at the hacienda ended WAY TOO early. I would have loved to stay much longer. I did manage to meet the owner, some of the family, and even a previous staff member who happen to be on vacation. Everyone was very knowledgeable of the area and super friendly.
After this trip, the couple that I was with is now planning to have their future wedding at hacienda San Lucas.
