"The Ultimate Mexican Experience"
We have frequently visited this old Hacienda turned Hotel for a few years, we were surprised to say the least about the impeccable renovations they did (except for the blue wall displaying the old paintings, too dark for my liking). The Spa was just about to be finalized and without a doubt I will be trying it when we are back next year, it will have an outdoor soak jetted tub and a traditional Temzcalli. This property has a fantastic Sunday brunch, a stunning pool and a kids club. It is has a very Mexican feel where everything is top notch in a luxury setting. This hotel keeps on getting better and better while you still recognize some of the familiar faces from the long standing staff.
Spent one night in this place during a business trip.
Fantastic quiete and relaxing place out of any noisy.
When you enter it seems that you are in the past and the time is stopped.
Everything is clean and in proper order.
Allowing several outdoor activities like swimming in the pool, walking or relaxing in the park. There is also a farm and a short track for jogging.
Really a great place with very kind personnel.
Tasty hacienda breakfast.
Hope to return soon.

"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!
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.
