Very disappointing. We were hoping for somewhere for those special occasions. The service was terrible and horrendously slow. When the food finally arrived it was stone cold. Appetizers were forgotten and instead arrived after the main meal. It was a birthday disaster at a significant...More

They list on Tripadvisor as a restaurant but they list elsewhere (in local papers) as a hotel, spa, bar, nightclub kind of place. We showed up to eat, but they did not show up to feed us. They are clearly having problems deciding.

Allowing a business to use the ratings of another business in the same community that had the same name is deceptive and tarnishes Trip Advisors credibility. When I tried to post this information on the review page it was found to not comply with policy. I think this policy, used in this way, hurts Trip Advisors standing and especially since the company fails to respond.

CI have the same question. How can a restaurant with a new management and location be given the old rating of 4.5? They are only sporadically open?

The Hacienda del Lago changed owners and location a few months ago. How do I remove the review that I wrote for my visit to the old HdL? Currently, they do not have permits to operate. They are on a quiet residential street where parking is a nuisance for the neighbors. The owner has been told that she cannot open legally. I am aghast that my old review is still showing up on their information page.

They are now legal and the neighbors happy because their fear of late night noise never happens. Parking is fine outfront and you park down at the malecon. It's a great boutique hotel with a wonderful location.
