“Beautiful place, great service”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

The place is 30 minutes from Cuernavaca, and used to be a sugar cane mill. its about 500 years old with a lot of stories. it has many different buildings, and each room is unique and different. My room had a private pool with half of it on the patio and the other half inside the living room. Big bathroom with natural lighting. The spa is nice and people very pleasing and flexible with schedules, which made it very easy.
Food is good but not great but no places close by to eat.

watch out for where it says on the website about a bathroom, they use the term rather generally. In some rooms there are baths ir even jacuzzis, but our first room it was just a temperamental shower. Scalding hot or freezing. That room is called Tabachin and it is next to the spa rooms. You are instructed to be very quiet so as not to disturb their clients! Not exactly wanting to run riot around the place, but would like to feel able to laugh out loud or have a fit or the giggles! It is such a shame, because the site is stunningly beautiful and the food reasonably priced and very good quality. Very comfy double bed. The room is pleasant enough but very dimly lit, so difficult to read. No TV. No fridge. No safe.
We then moved to a much larger room with bath, TV and safe for relatively little extra money. And freedom to laugh!! Still no fridge!

Room Tip: Choose the 'breakfast' rather than the individual items, good value and LOADS to eat. Avoid...

We appreciate your reviews, they are very important for us in order to improve our service.
We apologize for any inconvinience, Hacienda San Gabriel de las Palmas is aware of the problem you are referring to, "Tabachin" will become part of the Amate Spa and there will be 2 new rooms (now under construction).

Thank you for submiting your comments, we hope you come by again!

A very romantic experience with my hubby. I highly recommend to look out for the packages and get one! It really worth it, many activities to enjoy, excellent service, good quality food, get a good camera to capture every single corner of this amazing Hacienda. If you get a Temazcal, I really recommend to pay extra for a guide and get full benefit of it, it is such a great experience.

Room Tip: Check out all of them in the web site. Every single one has it's unique style. When you make the...

stayed here 2 nights with my wife. Nice partly restored hacienda. In comparison with hacienda cocoyoc or vista hermosa, this hacienda has just twenty something rooms which makes you really feel away from the crowds. I got a last minute offer so the price was OK. Nice pool and very nice gardens. Food is reasonable and service is very good. Massages in the spa are also ok. I stayed in one of the standard rooms which I prefer above the rooms in the main building. Main building is like a museum, very well worth a visit. There is a kind of walking trail under the palm trees in the back garden (30 mins walk).

I had visited the Hacienda before, but had never stayed overnight. My fiancé and I took an anniversary package and I am so glad we did. The service is superb; every employee we came across with was very attentive. There are quite a few things to do such as temazcal, horse riding, massage, private dinner… very good quality food and services. And if you like photography, this place won’t disappoint you…

We spent a wonderful night in this beautifully preserved sugar hacienda. Dating back to 1529, San Gabriel has a lot of history which makes it a very special place. Some buildings are very well maintained and furnished, and you can really feel a bit like you live at the time of the sugar cane plantation. Ohers are unused or ruins, but it adds to the romantism of your stay.
We had a 'standard' room, which does not fit because it was really unique and had a vitral in the bathroom. Excellent bed, all amenities, and fresh flowers on the bed made a very good night.
Our regret is not to have stayed long enough to enjoy the beautiful pool, or the spa. Dinner and breakfast in the open air restaurant were excellent. Beautiful alley of old palm trees, large ceiba trees and lots of boungainvillees make an enchanting vista in the park.
A very refreshing stop after the bustle and pollution of Mexico.

This place is definitely in a beautiful area and it's got lots of green around. The rooms are old but well kept; the Doña Suite is amazing thou, with two floors, private jacuzzi and sunbath area. The restaurant offers a good selection of good dishes at very reasonable prices. The spa is pretty mediocre thou. They don't have a sauna, turkish bath or anything similar. The only thing they can offer is Temazcal and it costs about 40 USD per person and at least you have to get 6 people together for them to work it out; nevertheless, temazcal is a great experience and cleanses your mind and body. The massage service is good but nothing out of the normal.
The new years eve party was extremely boring, but not because the hotel didn't make an effort (they hired a DJ, who did a standard job, not too good not too bad), but because the other guests were actually pretty boring.

Room Tip: It definitely is worth to take the Doña Suite, it is expensive, but it really is worth it.
