Expert Review

The 16th-century Dominican convent was restored and converted to a hotel in the 1970s by the National Institute of Anthropology. All the rooms are different but a few standout units are former nun’s cells with tiny bathrooms decorated in hand-painted tiles and French doors. The property includes five courtyards with a swimming pool in one of the largest. There are fountains, bougainvillea and potted plants everywhere. The King and Queen of Spain and the Prince of Wales have stayed at this beautiful historic hotel.
