Amazing Home and Wedding Venue
My wife and I recently stayed at the Hacienda and hosted an intimate wedding. Between the views, the home and the amazing staff and house manager Arcelia, it was a magical experience that we will never forget. You will be amazed by the architecture and incredible detail inside the home. The owner Kelley was very kind and attentive to all of our needs. We will definitely be back here. By far one of the coolest places I’ve stayed!

Amazing venue for an intimate and unique wedding!
We stumbled across Hacienda Antigua as a wedding venue on a google search and we are so happy we did! We hosted our 30 person wedding there and it was PERFECT! We hired a wedding planner, Somer from Vida Bonita Events, and she was so incredible to work with. We planned from afar and showed up without ever seeing the venue and the whole week was perfect! The house is gorgeous in photos and even better in real life. Every room is so unique and the entire house is so well thought out! It's the perfect house for family and close friends to stay. There are two other homes that can be rented for additional guests and they are gorgeous as well. The grounds are so well maintained. The yard, palapa and pool area make for a beautiful space to relax and enjoy life! We are so happy we chose Hacienda Antigua to celebrate our marriage. Every single one of our guests said it was hands down the BEST wedding they have ever been a part of. The house also includes a cooked breakfast each morning and every morning was different and delicious! We hosted a tequila tasting and dinner one night at the house and it was so much fun! Alonso was amazing! We felt like we had our own oasis in Mexico for the week. We can't wait to go back! I definitely recommend renting a car and providing transportation to guests not staying on site because it is very remote. Don't let that scare you. It's worth it!

Absolutely Gorgeous!
We couldn’t have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding. We rented Hacienda Antigua (and an adjacent property) for our group of 18. We celebrated our wedding right at Hacienda Antigua. It was so convenient rather than going to a separate location. There is a large yard where we had our ceremony and dinner. There is a large palapa with a built in wet bar (with full fridge), bathroom, and BBQ area. We were able to fit a band and our entire group comfortably in this area. The owner (Kelley) was helpful with pre-travel communication and recommendations. The property manager (Arcelia) was available during our stay, as well, and we also hired her to cook for us for our other meals... yum!

The Hacienda Antigua property is an absolutely gorgeous property. Our photographer had lots of great backdrops for pictures. The house itself is decorated perfectly, without any detail overlooked. The caterer had a large kitchen to work in, with a huge fridge/freezer and stovetop.

Would definitely recommend Hacineda Antigua and we are so happy we found this property to celebrate our perfect day! Our guests were equally impressed with the venue.

Unmatched Luxury with Comforts of Home
We could not imagine a more perfect venue for our intimate destination wedding. It was just the right mix of luxury and the comforts of home. The views are breathtaking and there are so many places for guests to relax, gather, and for fantastic photos.

Our guests could truly relax here and we loved having an intimate home environment for our wedding weekend. It was truly unforgettable.

The breakfasts were delicious (we loved the family style servings - and the fresh squeezed juice!). The staff was friendly and attentive while giving the group plenty of space & privacy.

The House manager, Gabriel, was so friendly, flexible and available to us, and our guests were as WOW'd by the home as we were. Ask him about fireworks :)

Kelley was immensely helpful throughout the whole process, even before we contracted. We were lucky to have caught her & Frank in Mexico for an in-person tour. The thoughtfulness and care they have put into the home is carried into their communications. I felt so supported through the planning process, and feel she went above the call of duty to share what she knew about the area, which was an incredible support.

We are so grateful to have found this Hacienda - it is now a very special place to us and our closest friends & family.

The most beautiful place
It’s hard to know where to start...so many wonderful things to say about Hacienda Antiqua. I was searching for almost a year for a wedding venue that felt right and coming up with nothing until I came across this home. When I went to see it in person it was even more spectacular than the photos. It really is magical. Kelley was so kind and easy to work with and I could tell she was really invested in our experience there. The wedding turned out to be beyond anything we could of dreamed of. Every vendor was easy to work with and did such a good job. Everyone of our guest said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to and no one wanted to leave at the end of the night!
The staff was great, they kept the house nice and clean and made breakfast for us each morning. We rented the two other houses on the property for our family and they all loved being there as well. We can’t wait to go back!

Unique, One-of-a-Kind Hacienda/Wedding Venue!
My husband and I recently stayed at Hacienda Antiqua for a week. Not only was it where we were vacationing, but we also got married here. The wedding/trip was a year in the making and Kelley was there holding our hand through the entire process, the entire time. Kelley and her staff did not let us down on when recommending vendors for our wedding, excursions for our families or chefs for special dinners along the way. We couldn't have asked for a more hospitable team!

The hacienda was spectacular. Every time I took a second to look around, I saw something new and interesting. I just wish I had someone there to tell me all the stories of all the different architectural pieces and the decor. You can just tell it all has a long history. The pool is a great size for a large group...you never felt like you were on top of each other.

As a wedding venue, Hacienda Antigua was magical. The wedding planner did an amazing job creating an atmosphere that blew me away. Everyone said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been too. We had 60ish guests, which was perfect for all the outdoor space this place offers. Seriously, if you are looking for a unique place for your wedding, this IS IT!

We will definitely come back if they will have us!

Wow!!! Stunning wedding location
We recently stayed at Hacienda Antigua for our July wedding and we could not have been happier with our selection. We are from Australia so hadn’t had the opportunity to visit prior to our wedding so only had the photos online as a benchmark, but wow! When we walked through the doors we were speechless! The beautiful architecture and design, the perfectly manicured grounds, and of course - the view! We had five days at the Hacienda with family and our guests stayed at Villa Boda on the same property. It was perfect! Kelley was amazing to deal with leading up to arrival as any questions I had and Gabriel was the same once we arrived. The food was beautiful that the house staff made - dinners and breakfasts. We hired Arcelia for a dinner and brunch also which was amazing! I cannot recommend this stay highly enough.We will be back

Stunning spot for a destination wedding
My partner and I got married at Hacienda Antigua mid-June and had a terrific experience. Kelley (the owner) was responsive to all of our planning emails (we usually had responses within a few hours, but always within a day) and helped us coordinate multiple reservations and two main events--a wedding and a day after brunch. She gave great suggestions for local chefs and caterers, too. In total, we had 50 guests at our wedding and felt that the space accommodated everyone very well.

On the ground, the house is staffed by a wonderful team. One of my concerns was that, with over 10 people staying in the house on our days of maximum occupancy, the place would get messy. Not so! The staff tidied our rooms every day, made sure the kitchen was clean, and stocked the bathrooms with TP and some cute local soaps. The staff also helped us arrange horseback riding, yoga, massages, and manicures.

I expected the place to be almost as pretty as the photos because, quite frankly, some of the photos look almost fake. Nope! We walked in and my jaw dropped. It is really that spectacular! Over our stay, we had front row seats to unbelievable sunsets. The pool was spacious enough for 10 people to be splashing around, no problem. The house is open and airy and there are nooks for everyone to have their space, even with a large group. Each bedroom is beautiful. While the master suite is the largest, all of the other rooms have something that makes them unique--cool bathrooms, huge 4-poster beds, outdoor showers.

During our stay, we spent most of our time in Lo de Marcos and neighboring San Pancho. There were plenty of nice and inexpensive restaurants, and the ocean water was warm.

We loved this space and our stay. The drive to get to it is a little bit of an adventure, but the tranquility and beauty at the end of the road is worth it.

Dream Wedding!!!
We had our dream wedding at Hacienda Antigua!!! The venue truly lends itself to creating pure magic on one of the most important days of your life: your wedding day. Easy to access for vendors. Beautiful scenic backdrop for wedding photos. Intimate venue for an unforgettable day. Our guests were so impressed with the Hacienda that they are now planning vacations, retreats, anniversaries at this very property. What was the most special about our stay at Hacienda Antigua was the mini-family vacation we had with our parents and with our siblings and their children!!! We will never forget the Hacienda and are forever grateful to Kelley and her staff for being such great hosts!!!!

Hacienda Antigua for wedding week
I rented out Hacienda Antigua, Villa Boda and Casa Molendera for a whole week leading up to my wedding for our wedding party. It was a fabulous venue to have people spend multiple days since it is such a unique and special place. We loved how spacious all the rooms were- no one got the "crappy" room and everyone was very happy! The amenities were all great.

Kelley can organize a local chef who is fantastic (Arcelia) so I highly recommend asking to organize meals with her. The decorations around the house are enough to host an entire wedding and only rent lights and buy flowers.

The two things to be aware of (and may change in time) are:
1. If you plan to have people stay at all three houses and want everyone to be able to have meals together you will need to rent extra tables, chairs plates, cutlery, cups etc as each house only has enough for the people sleeping there and you won't want to move the items between houses.
2. Transportation is tough and cabs don't necessarily know where Hacienda Antigua is, so make sure to pre-book transportation if you are going to leave Hacienda Antigua frequently.

Overall, our 4 day wedding week experience at Hacienda Antigua and The Ranch was absolutely fabulous and I strongly recommend anyone looking for a unique wedding check this place out!
