This was our second 2-week stay (the first was in 2017) and once again we found it very relaxing and exceptionally enjoyable. Very welcoming and great hospitality from the owners Jason and Patty, with simple but very clean accommodation. If you are looking for a "home base" from which to explore the East Cape (and beyond) this is the place for you! And La Ribera itself offers a wonderful, deserted beach and several very good dining options.
Hacienda de Palmas was everything we'd hoped for and more. We stayed here, in room #1 for 3 days, to get to Cabo Pulmo for snorkelling and to explore the area. Patti and Jason accommodated us, as well as a few family members who stayed overnight, and provided them with extra towels and a lovely continental breakfast. Breakfast was taken each morning either in the large kitchen or in the beautiful garden courtyard, over conversation with our hosts and/or other guests.
The room itself was very clean (and huge) and the beds and pillows were really comfortable. Our bathroom was also very large and super clean, and well separated from the main area which made sharing the room with another couple 'a little less embarrassing'! We also had a mini fridge, which is really good when you're somewhere for more than a night. We had access right outside our door, to a beautiful covered patio where we watched the sunrise each morning.
The town itself is lovely, located on the Sea of Cortez with several really good restaurants. Dinner at Efren's one night (their mushroom risotto is killer!) and lunch at a new eatery right in town called AMS (I think that's the name-look for their signs). Fantastic papas rellenas and stuffed poblano peppers!
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Jason and Patti for a really relaxing and pleasant stay. We'll be back, perhaps to check out your 'holiday house' once it's back up and running!
We stayed at the Hacienda for 2 weeks while renovating our house in the area. We felt very comfortable and at home. The breakfast was very good. Coffee ready early which we appreciated. Patty and Jason were great hosts! It was nice to sit outside in the morning and listen to the birds singing.
Doesn't get better than this! Subsequently, we have been back for a visit! We will be back.
I truly enjoyed our time at the Hacienda! Patti, Jason and Obed treated us like family and cared very much about our comfort. Had great food and adventures along with our much needed relaxation time. We ventured to Santa Rita hot springs, rode 4-wheelers to Los Barriles and loved the small town of La Ribera. Can't wait until our next visit!
We really enjoyed our stay at The Hacienda! The grounds were wonderful! The rooms were very nice. Patty and Jason are wonderful hosts! I really enjoyed my time in this fishing village!
