A head-turning luxury villa with nineteenth-century roots and heart-snaring views

Guanajuato is known for its silver and gold mining heritage. Today, Villa Maria Cristina is a shining example of why this city is tailor-made for luxury city breaks in Mexico. Created out of renovated nineteenth-century mansions, this boutique hotel matches a historic feel with contemporary comfort – all within easy reach of Guanajuato’s historic centre.

Step beyond Villa Maria Cristina’s grand façade to discover a welcoming retreat, with wraparound mountain views. The hotel’s architecture celebrates its setting with plenty of mosaic-clad patios, terraces and galleries. From a stylish central pool and outdoor hot tub to secluded tables made for leisurely coffees, there are plenty of spots to stretch out and relax. Inside, guest rooms draw on their historic roots while the Spa waits to whisk your senses to a historic Roman bath house. In the restaurants and bars, authentic Mexican fare is the order of the day – from fine dining at Teresita to real tequila at El Caballo.

You could spend all your time at Villa Maria Cristina enjoying the views of the surrounding Guanajuato mountains. But make sure to explore the city, too. The UNESCO-listed centre boasts fascinating buildings dating back to the sixteenth century, when it was a wealthy silver mining town. Or delve into the city’s contemporary culture scene, which includes the famous El Cervantino international arts festival.

Lovely hotel in Guanajuato

A nice, large but intimate property, with great service from everybody. The property and guest rooms are extremely well maintained. The views to the nearby mountains are excellent, the ambiance is quiet and charming.

Lovely old-world retreat in an interesting historical city

Very attentive staff. The accomodations are large and well-appointed. Although there are only about 40 suites, the resort has indoor and outdoor pools and jacuzzis (one overlooking a mountain), a spa, gym, and two bars.
