"Echaron a perder una hacienda con mucha historia"
I was really disappointed on my last visit.
I have visited the hotel since I was born (31 years old). Hen I was around 8 years old I saw a wedding there and I knew I wanted to get married there, 28 years later I made it, I got married at the hacienda, it was an amazing wedding, with spectacular photos. I'm going to tell you something, I'm glad I got married before its remodeling, because if it had been as it is today, I would not have done it, even if it had been my dream; the hotel looks horrible, it lost all the history, the coziness, the wonderful spaces now are all cluttered. You tried to make a "modern" hotel, but now it looks terrible, a mixture of styles that have nothing to do between each, the Bar looks like a kitsch stable so bulky and bad made, with a carpet that looks dirty and is a visual pain. Let me tell you, your interior designer fooled you, and just charged you to make a disaster! I can not believe they let a person, or an office, made such a mess, it's like if they had no idea of what the hacienda history is.
To finish with the disappointment, we went to the farm, IN WHAT BAD CONDITION YOU HAVE THE POOR ANIMALS! With so much remodeling and you could't spend a little bit of the budget to keep the animals in good condition, seriously, instead of changing the floor of the terrace of the pool, you could have invested that in their farm. It's a shame, one of the poor donkeys has hairless parts, the hens have no feathers, the peacocks used to be loose, they are now caged in a micro-cage, the mare tied to a tree with half a meter of rope, she can't move, just like the horse next to the cow, the goats have their knees hurt, the cow is in a tiny space, alone. The cages are in terrible condition, broken with lose metals that are a hazard to animals, the floor is in terrible conditions, they is almost no shade for animals to get sheltered, it smells horrible (not the normal barn smell, no, it smells like an abandoned animal). They should consider disappearing their farm, it's a cruelty !!
The only thing still good about the hotel is the staff, but the truth is that, it doesn't matter the good memories I have of the hotel, my wedding, Christmas and new year with family, my proposal of marriage, I think I won't be coming back.
"An outstanding place and an outstading hotel"
The place is amazing, everything is so well maintained, the facilities are outstanding but the food is the best! Believe me, this was such an amazing experience, the perfect place to rest, party, organize a training or you name it!
"Great Family Friebdly Hotel"
We stayed for one night:
Pros: Good food ate at the restaurant for dinner had the buffet, not a lot of variety but what was there had great taste, (basically grilled steaks, pasta, salads, baked veges, some deserts). Breakfast buffet was awesome included samosas and bloody Mary's. Ordered room service sandwiches were tasty (FYI tip is included in the prices for room service)
Room was newly renovated and very nice
Nice size pool and several activities for kids inside the pool and out (animal farm, bond fire, and tour)
Buffets are more expensive compared to others in Querétaro (breakfast buffet was about $500 with tip included per person)
Not stroller friendly
Overall would recommend!
"Best place for Breakfast!"
I went with my family for their breakfast buffet, delicious! You have so much food choices! And everything is so good and tasty. We went for a walk around the place, is huge! They have a pool, some hamacas in the garden so you can rest there, they even have a small zoo with rabbits, pigs, sheeps, goats, horses, a cow, ducks, turtles... it's very kid friendly.
In what was the splendid and stately "hacienda" which Cortés gave to La Malinche at the end of the 16th Century, stands the Fiesta Americana Hacienda Galindo, a hotel in Querétaro, México, which preserves the beauty of the original architecture, its large, lush gardens and colonial legends.
The hotel combines its country air and historical roots with the modernity and practicality of its property to offer a magical place for vacations, business meetings and social events. This hotel's privileged location in San Juan del Rio, Querétaro, makes it ideal for visitors from Mexico City, the state of México and San Luis Potosi, as well as Guadalajara and Hidalgo, who have made it their favorite hotel for organizing work meetings or to spend the weekend.
The hotel is an institution for the people of Querétaro, who visit it to taste the typical Mexican dishes at its restaurant or spend a pleasant evening at the bar. We remind you that the check-in time is from 3:00:00 PM (subject to space availability). The check-out time is 11:00 AM and we suggest using our express check-out service.
