A Romantic Getaway to Hacienda San Angel

Once in a while, you will discover a place that is simply magical. I have found that place, and it’s Hacienda San Angel, which is full of old-world charm, romance, and beauty. 

Nestled high above the narrow cobblestone streets of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, it’s one of the world’s most elegant boutique luxury hotel experiences. Hacienda San Angel surrounds its guests with world-class service, stunning Mexican Colonial architecture, turn-of-the-century furnishings, and countless angel decorative pieces. You will be wowed from the time you pull the rope to ring the bell and enter through the hand-carved massive wooden doors. Immediately you’ll be greeted with a warm welcome and given a cold drink, and then the pampering will begin by the Hacienda San Angel’s exceptional staff.

When thinking of your next romantic getaway, what’s more perfect than an intimate, yet sophisticated hotel that has a history filled with love, glamour, and romance? Hacienda San Angel has 12 romantic suites that offer breathtaking views of Banderas Bay and the Sierra Madre Mountains. The courtyards throughout this unique hotel are full of colorful flowers, tropical foliage, and numerous fountains.

Hacienda San Angel has welcomed a host of international celebrities over the years, drawn by its historical charm, stunning views, and exquisite cuisine. Several prominent individuals who have stayed here include Princess Grace of Monaco (Grace Kelly); John Huston, the acclaimed film director; and Roger Moore, the suave 007 James Bond. 

But the most intriguing are Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who were known to stay at the inn during the 1960s filming of the cult classic movie “The Night of the Iguana.” This legendary Hollywood couple, their public romance, and the picturesque setting of Puerto Vallarta certainly added to the allure of their famous love story. Over a decade later, Richard Burton purchased the Hacienda’s main villa as a Valentine’s Day gift for his then-wife, Susan, in 1977, while Elizabeth Taylor had a home just down the street.

Some key features of Hacienda San Angel include traditional Mexican architecture with arched doorways and colorful tiles. It has a delightful blend of colonial charm with modern comfort and amenities. The cherry on top is the gourmet dining. The on-site restaurant, Hacienda San Angel Gourmet, serves delectable Mexican and international cuisine. Guests can dine on the scenic rooftop terrace, listen to a magnificent Mariachi Band, and watch a nightly fireworks display. All of this adds up to an extremely elegant, romantic, and unforgettable experience to which I can personally testify.

Hacienda San Angel is not only special, it’s truly magical. It stands as a testament to past traditions, elegance, romance, and culinary excellence all tucked away in the heart of Puerto Vallarta.
