“A magical place to stay -only an hour from Mexico city”
Reviewed 26 August 2010

Hostal de la luz is a magical rare find.The surroundings are breathtaking,the staff are fantastic.The rooms and facilities have been furished to very high standards.This is not a place to party on down to the wee small hours but a place to recharge,relax,unwind and be healed. The holistic massage was the best i have ever had and belive me i have had a few massages around the world in my job as crew for an airline!Ifelt fantastic after my stay and wished it could have been for longer.I can't wait to go back.

This is such an amazing hotel. I stayed for only two nights, though if I were to go back, I would definitely book at least four.

Hostal de la Luz is so relaxing. The energy is amazing. It was actually declared a peace zone by the Dalai Lama.

I booked a master suite and ended up with I think the best one. There was a little meditation room off the bedroom, with a great view from three sides, and meditation benches to sit on. Great idea, I used them every day.

Service was excellent, the entire staff was very friendly, from check in to check out.

The restaurant is not so great, there are fixed meal times and a fixed menu, so options are almost nonexistent. They can do a special meal for vegetarians, and if you ask, sometimes they will let you order from a menu they keep hidden in the back (for special occasions?). The restaurant has a great view of the mountains.

The spa is excellent, with really good therapists and a variety of spa treatments. The temazcal is AMAZING, and I highly recommend it. We did a private temazcal for just the two of us, and the temazcalero who led it was excellent. This is definitely something not to miss at this hotel.

Across the street from the hotel, but on the same property, is a labyrinth, surrounded by gardens.

There are a lot of little places to sit and read or relax all throughout the hotel, lots of different levels to the property, so there’s lots of privacy. This hotel pretty much fills up on the weekends with guests coming in from Mexico City and is empty weekdays.

The only complain I have is with myself since I forgot the camera in the city so I could not share pictures of this lovely place with you guys.

A great place to stay if you want to relax, read a book (or many), meditate, enjoy the mediteranean furnished spa, enjoy tasty and healthy meals at the restaurant and enjoy the Asian / desert like atmosphere.

Looking for a romantic getaway close to Mexico City?...you will not find a better place

Or on the other hand, just want to be with yourself to start over again? well, this is the place to be.

  • Liked — the attention to details
  • Disliked — maybe that it has no tv or internet, but you don't need it after all
