Villa Maria Cristina, Relais & Chateaux in Guanajuato, Mexico

One of the most exclusive and exquisite boutique hotels in Mexico, and the first of its kind in Guanajuato, Villa María Cristina is a remarkable experience. Meticulous attention to detail and thoughtful décor are present throughout the property and its 28 spacious suites, with the air and atmosphere of a warmly welcoming home. Rich terracotta walls, mosaic-tiled floors, and oversize potted plants create an authentically Mexican feel, and the hotel's lovely terrace features a whirlpool under a pergola, as well as tranquil outdoor eating spaces. Accommodations offer hardwood floors, marble bathrooms, delicate natural color palettes, and European furnishings that complement the hotel's colonial architecture. Sunlight floods in through large windows and original works of art adorn the walls. Unwind from your travels with a massage, or take a soothing swim in the hotel spa's Roman-style sunken pool. Find a peace of mind that can only come with being in a secluded and far-from-frenzied destination, and allow Villa María Cristina to take you to a world of tranquility and joy.


The hotel features an intimate restaurant, set in an elegant lounge area on the first floor, with a fireplace and balconies overlooking the street. Serving a flavorful gourmet menu of Mexican and international dishes, complemented by fine wines from the hotel's extensive wine cellar, you need look no further than your doorstep to delight in a memorable gastronomic experience. Villa María Cristina is set in a city so picturesque and historic it is deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so waste no time in heading out to discover the depths of Guanajuato. From the city's numerous lively squares and live music, to ancient churches and museums, there are many sights to take in and cultural attractions are at every turn. Hidalgo Market's opulent building, as well as Juárez Theatre, with its neoclassical façade and crowning statues, are just a few examples of the architectural wealth of this city. Perhaps most unique to the city though is its network of underground tunnels. With walls made of solid rock, this impressive system of tunnels was originally created to divert the river after an early 20th-century flood. Take in the magnificence of Guanajuato while staying in the finest of facilities, at the charming and refined Villa María Cristina.

This hotel can compete favorably with any high end hotel in the world. Every aspect of the hotel reflects attention to fine detail. The suites have beautiful views, fine linens, beautiful woodwork and furniture and the maid service keeps everything spotless. The grounds are gorgeous and with a large heated pool for outside relaxing. The restaurant is first class and the room service is excellent. Staff is excellent, and available on a moments notice for special needs, and many speak very good English. A truly great hotel.

We are pretty discriminating travelers, and we absolutely loved this hotel. It is gorgeous, and the employees were so friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were beautiful, peaceful, and very clean. It is almost a mile from the center of town, but we love to walk, so it was no problem. I also liked that we didn’t have to deal with the noise in the town center. The restaurant is very pretty, and we really enjoyed the food. Also, the bedding was excellent, which is a big deal for me. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Guanajuato!

Spent a week here for an international even I Guanajuato and totally enjoyed staying in this marvelous place. The architecture resembles the structure of Guanajuato itself, with different pathways and stairways. The staff are kind and helpful and the hotel has great facilities such as spa and swimming pool (indoor and outdoor).

Don"t believe the positive reviews. This place may be the most expenxive hotel in Guanajuaymro, it certainly isn't the 5 star resort it claims to be. The rooms are large, but are decorated in poor taste (faux french) and lack warmth or comfort. The service is amateuristic at best. The bathrooms are cramped with single sink and toilet in the same room as the shower (We didn't have a tub). The water is either scorching hot or cold. Service is certainly not what you expect from a high end hotel. It is run by a bunch of amateurs. Nobody gave us a tour of the property to show all the amenities available (e.g. pool, spa etc.). They couldn't provide us with a map of the city and looked at us strange when we asked for one. (The hotel is about 25 minutes walking from the historic centre). When we inquired about arrangingg a car to the airport, they acted as if this was a first for them. The receptionist got all flustered (there is no congierge), went away to ask around witjh some colleagues for and then said he would arrange for a private car, but we had to prepare to pay with cash. We agreed to do it, only to find out he had forgotten to. What hihh end jotel doesn't have a car service on call? To top it all off, I got sick after eating breakfast in the restaurant. My advice, stay away from this hotel if yoy are expecting service conmensurate to the price you are paying. You are better off staying in a high end place in San Miguel de Allende and taking a day trip to Guajuanato. Also, some of the rooms are very, very noisy. Definitely not living up to the standards of Relais and Chateaux and not worth the price.
