Eighteen members of my family enjoyed 5 days of splendor in this incredible villa. Thoroughly Mexican atmosphere in
architecture and decor made this vacation an unparalleled adventure. Concierge Paco must be the best in North America.
Gourmet food was presented daily while we contemplated gorgeous views from all dining areas. Pictures can’t capture
the spaciousness of every room. It’s truly a castle. One of our kids described it as “the Mexican version of Downton Abbey
and Paco is our Carson”. We did feel like nobility for an unforgettable 5 days!
