Recent Colonia San Antonio reviews

  • Wutta GEM!!!

    "I always wondered what it would be like to actually live (if only for one week in our case) in a home out of the pages of Architectural Digest. NOW I KNOW...fabu!! Having been through a few remodels myself, I can only imagine the headaches that must have come with ALL of the design decisions made in creating the perfect home base environment to enjoy a stay in San Antonio, San Miguel de Allende. The amenities are, to understate, too many to enumerate but, suffice to say, everything you need to accomplish on your visit...you WILL be able to! Casa Fortuna is positioned in a residential area outside the central zone and is a healthy hike or a short AND cheeeeep taxi ride away from shopping, restaurants and all attractions. We are told that SMA is usually a fairly sleepy little town made even milder by the super laid back attitudes of the locals. We arrived on Christmas Eve eve and stayed until New Years Day...& honestly it was bedlam (in a pretty good way, I guess) although, it might be nice to return when it's not such a celebration. Really, people came into town from ALL over, and it was basically mobbed...Times Square in NYC has nuthin' on this place during a holiday week!!! Casa Fortuna is on the edge of a very active community in San Antonio...people out at all hours (except mornings), dogs barking through the night, roosters crowing at dawn through mid-morning, fireworks, parties, loud bangs (???) proliferated while we were there. Luckily, we brought earplugs and used them! Norma & Lupe were just great...going above & beyond. Norma even arranged to have the rooftop terrace fireplace working a couple of days before departure and we REALLY enjoyed it up there. In December you need a fire to take the chill off the morning and evening temps which are coolish. Totally in the spirit of aiming for perfection we aren't fans of the solar water heating system. We could operate it well enough on our end, but it's hardly efficient from a user standpoint. It takes 3-5 minutes to actually get hot water out of the shower, wasting a LOT of precious Mexican filtered water. The pressure isn't great but passable AND, the lovely bathtubs are clearly for show ONLY. With no hot tub on the amenities list when we booked, I was deliriously happy to see two big soaking tubs for my daily, lengthy bath with book & wine. Soooo sad when it became obvious that baths were not on the agenda due to extremely slow water flow & non-working drain plugs. A memorable stay."

  • A beautiful home close to local attractions.

    "My husband and I joined his sister here for one week. She had been there the week before also. We were all impressed with the decor and lovely furnishings. The roof top terrace was the best. We had morning coffee up there most days. The sunny skies and the view were a welcome reprieve from Indiana in winter. Including the roof top, there are 4 floors, so be prepared to climb some stairs. The people of San Miguel are so friendly! It was so easy and cheap to get a cab to get anywhere in town. We enjoyed our first hot air balloon ride which flew over nearby countryside. We had many great meals in local restaurants and enjoyed cooking at home on occasion. My husband and I stayed in the 3rd floor bedroom which had its own outside terrace. The bed was too hard for my liking but the bed in the master on the 2nd floor was not quite as firm. I loved the fact I could make calls to the USA on the house phone at no charge! I could keep in touch with my elderly mother back home (I don't have international calling on my cell phone so it did not work down there.) The wifi worked great for sending and receiving emails and surfing the web. We enjoyed Mexico and would highly recommend this home as a place to stay."

  • Wonderful House!

    "We loved this well-cared for home. The lay-out of the house is ideal for two people, or two couples, because it allows for each to have privacy. It's a beautiful home, attractively decorated, fully equipped (even though we didn't cook any meals, the kitchen had all the best cookware, dishes, and tools), and convenient to everything. We especially enjoyed cool mornings in front of the fire; and the rooftop deck, and other outside spaces, for cocktails in the evening and relaxing any time of day. The reason for just 4 stars is because dogs barking all night and roosters crowing early in the morning made it difficult to sleep in the upstairs bedroom, even with earplugs. We were also in San Miguel over New Years---a time when the city was particularly crowded and loud fireworks New Years Eve went off for many hours past midnight. After the crowds left the city, we enjoyed our time there more."

  • Spacious, welcoming, well-appointed and comfortable home in gorgeous San Miguel de Allende

    "Our trip to San Miguel de Allende was wonderful, and the highlight was our home away from home, Casa Madonna! It is a spacious, well-appointed and comfortable home only 15-20 minutes easy walk to the restaurants, shops and other points of interest in the city center. All three levels of the home have outdoor spaces to enjoy beautiful weather and views of the San Miguel vistas. There are many very positive comments about Casa Madonna set forth below -- we wholeheartedly agree with all these glowing reviews!"
