  1. We were originally planning on opening the 15th of October. We have pushed this back to the first week of November in order to tackle some bigger projects before opening.
  2. My guess would be no. I'm not even sure if we could find a Non Mexico, Non Permanente, with Work Visa to do the job. We do have Insurance specifically for Valet parking, something that too many places who offer this service do not have.
  3. Where did you here that from? As I'm sure everyone here knows and has experienced, often times people tend to invent things here when they don't know. The new property is still having finishing touches put on it after a HUGE renovation including building several entirely new rooms and a spa. The website is down because we are not yet able to provide accurate post construction photography. The website, Facebook, etc all goes right along with the new Hacienda. This is why we have gone though Google, Facebook, and travel websites to delete the old photos. We have completely deleted the hotel trip advisor page so that we will start new with reviews that have nothing to do with the old property as we do not want to mislead anyone. The new owners infact purchased the entire business down to the inventory of shampoos and linens. As some people have been quick to point out, there is not a lot of on street parking. There will be valet parking offered free of charge. Once we have a finished product to present, the website will be back up and we will start taking reservations again.
  4. That is typically what happens when one purchases a business. "We were approached by someone to PURCHASE the business. All of our staff including the same chef are still involved with the addition of more. We are actively helping the new owners with a smooth transition and will continue to have an administrative role."
  5. I'm not sure where you are getting your information but this is simply not at all true. I've heard all kinds of rumors and as always, it's best to get it from the source. We we have not moved away. We are not "letting someone use the name". All previous reservations have been canceled and refunded and NOT held over to the new property. Of course people can rebook but we didn't find it fair to just tell them "your reservation is now at a different location". This gives guests the option to stay at the new location or not. We were approached by someone to PURCHASE the business. All of our staff including the same chef are still involved with the addition of more. We are actively helping the new owners with a smooth transition and will continue to have an administrative role. We are also negotiating the rent or possible purchase of land near by for parking. The new property is much larger with 9 suites, heated pool, a kitchen three times larger, full service salon & spa and extensive grounds. We we will be officially opening October 15th and will make announcements in all of the usually local outlets. To address the corkage fee. It is correct that we have a corkage of 250 pesos. We carry a select menu of boutique wines, mostly Mexican, and our Margin is 250 pesos more or less. Rather than doubling or tripling retail price (as is typical of restaurants), we would rather make the same margin on all wines and make the higher end wines much more affordable. Plus since we get our wines direct from the winery in most cases our prices end up being around retails price. We are a business. Our reason for investing and opening every day is to make money. We make 250 pesos on a bottle of wine toward our overhead (and yes I idealy profit), whether you buy it from us or bring it yourself.
  6. I was 28 when I moved here. Probably by far the youngest expat I have met.
