Check In: Hacienda San Angel

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
03.21.2011 | by: Meghan

When Kim from Desire to Inspire went to Puerto Vallarta a couple weeks ago, she stayed at the Hacienda San Angel–a collection of five hilltop villas (with 14 suites) that she called “the most beautiful hotel I have ever seen.” Puerto Vallarta is a touristy resort town, sure, but strictly pertaining to what’s inside this elaborately decorated hotel–Mexican tiled restaurant, fountain-filled courtyards and statue-surrounded pool–you probably won’t want to leave anyway. The place is dripping with some pretty serious old world antiques: hand-carved wooden beds, tables and high-backed chairs from the 19th century; ornate chandeliers, candlesticks, candleabras, wall sconces; and Mexican paintings (of the Immaculate Virgin variety) in every room. And Hollywood history trivia bonus:  Apparently, one of the villas was once owned by actor Richard Burton, who bought it as a Valentine’s Day gift for one of his wives (not Elizabeth Taylor).

  1. Wow…this is beautiful…full of exquisite furniture and rich regal colors. The craftsmanship of all the furniture is unreal! Will have to bookmark this one.


  2. So cool that you blogged my stay at Hacienda San Angel! The photos don’t really do it justice. It was even more amazing in person. The ambiance, especially in the evenings, can’t really be expressed in photos.
