Hacienda San Angel - part 1

During my stay in Puerto Vallarta, my husband and I had the absolute pleasure of spending 3 nights at a boutique hotel located in the heart of the city (a honeymoon treat). The Hacienda San Angel is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen and I had to share my experience there with you all. In fact, I took so many photos I may have to do a couple more posts after this one. :)

The Hacienda San Angel is colonial style, consisting of five Mexican villas (one is across the street from the other four), with a total of 14 suites. The first villa, Villa Bursus, was purchased by actor Richard Burton as a Valentine's Day gift for his then wife Susan. The hacienda has been restored over time (and a huge addition is in the works) and is filled with absolutely incredible antiques, which come from Mexico and Europe and the majority are from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. When I say filled I mean every bed, dresser, painting, bathroom fixture, light fixture etc. is an antique, which means every piece is different. My husband and I were mesmerized as we took a couple tours around the entire hacienda and I photographed just about every inch of the place. Hopefully my photos do it justice. My post today will feature the suite we stayed in - the San Jose. (There are alot of photos of the bed because not only was it gorgeous, but the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. The linen top sheet, down duvet and pillows you sink into....*sigh*)

Very beautiful and heavenly! And what a perfect time to be in a warm country. The rooms reminded me of some of the paradores we stayed in Spain! Great images!

“Oh My!!”

There a few hotel rooms that make stop and go WHOW but this must definitely did!!

Unique and stunning the white walls complaint the striking crafted antique furniture to perfection – just simply “beautiful”

Did you shed tears when you had to leave? I certainly would. My husband and I can't get enough of Mexico. To stay in a place like this would be heaven. Thank you for sharing.

Wow, the place is so beautiful and vivid I can almost feel the atmosphere! Mexico has always been a dream destination, now I know where I'll be staying! Thanks =)
xo, Eleni
