Origins

Hacienda de Los Santos Resort & Spa was built in the 18th century for a wealthy silver baron.
Owners, Jim and Nancy Swickard, found their Shangri-la in Alamos, after travelling for many years. They bought the 300-year old hacienda in 1989, and have since devoured books on Spanish Colonial design and architecture, creating the genuine flavour of Old Mexico in their luxurious hideaway.
 

The Review

Hacienda de Los Santos Resort & Spa is a luxury resort hotel in Alamos. It has magically captured the spirit of the past, being wonderfully preserved in this grand residence, set amongst the foothills of the Sierra Madres. By day, the resort offers guests with a relaxed, yet charming environment in which to wind down and enjoy the four swimming pools, two putting greens, theatre, revolution-era cantina, archery range and a full-service spa. But, as daylight yields to starlit night, everything changes; this hushed, cool sanctuary turns in to a romantic, magical haven in which candles are lit, fires blaze and the sound of mellow guitars strumming melodic tunes can be heard.
Luxurious guest rooms are appointed with antique Spanish colonial furnishings, plush linens, soothing colours and the romantic touch of a wood-burning fireplace. Rooms vary in size, with the Presidential Suite having its own private indoor garden area and separate living room. Each guest room features custom furniture, tribal area carpets over cantera stone floors, large windows, and hand-crafted artefacts dating back to the 1700's.
Hacienda de Los Santos is located just a short walk from the main plaza and cathedral. Guests can take a leisurely stroll along the cobblestone streets, immersing themselves in the ambiance and history of the colonial gem of Alamos. Alternatively, those seeking adventure can choose to go horseback riding, cycling, or hiking in the environs; the choices are endless.
The resort boasts four colonial dining rooms, highlighting the importance of providing an exquisite culinary experience at the hacienda, with a feast for all five senses. With beautifully garnished dishes, tantalizing aromas and flavours of New American and Sonoran cuisine, guests are continuously spoiled at every meal time. 
Hacienda de Los Santos Resort & Spa is the perfect combination of old-world Mexico mixed with the very best modern comforts.
