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!

Perfect wedding venue
We celebrated our wedding here in March 2019. Everything was PERFECT. The location was great, we rented all three houses for our wedding party and family. So many guests commented on how beautiful our venue was. The staff was excellent, we were able to get last minute day of wedding massages and I ate the best shrimp tacos I've ever had as I was getting ready to get married. I cannot wait to come back and visit Hacienda Antigua again. We had the best time with our friends before and after the wedding and I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding at this venue.

Better than ever imagined
Staying at Hacienda Antigua was the best travel experience we could have asked for. Kelley and Gabriel were quick to communicate from the beginning and were always there to answer questions and provide options for meals and different options for potential events. You will get more than enough information on what to expect and how to get there. Logistically, it was incredibly easy and the meals cooked by the staff exceeded expectations.



The venue is more breathtaking in person than in photos. All of our event guests were absolutely blow away at the view and beauty of the Hacienda and the surrounding area. The grounds are perfectly groomed and the Hacienda itself couldn’t be cleaner. The cleaning staff not only does a great job but also is very personable and polite. On the day of our event we had an almost 2-hour, purplish-red sunset.



Honestly, the only negative thing I may be able to say is that some taxi and Uber drivers may not be willing to drive all the way to the Hacienda, although, this only happened to two of our over seventy guests.



If you are looking for a carefree stay in a beautiful villa away from the city, Hacienda Antigua is the perfect spot.

Words Can’t Describe the Perfection of Hacienda Antigua
Absolutely, hands down the perfect wedding. The Hacienda itself is gorgeous! The decor is amazing! The landscaping immaculate! The view is stunning!! Everything a bride could ever dream of for her wedding was found here!

We arrived on April 26th 2018. We were met by the ever efficient house manager Miguel and escorted to The Hacienda, which is located atop a high hillside. The feeling of that first step in the door will stay with me forever. There is an overall sense of peace, serenity and awe that can’t be described. The friendly staff that awaited our arrival became a part of the overall perfect experience.

There are 5 beautifully decorated and comfortable sleeping suites, 4 surrounding the pool, and 1 upstairs. Each suite has a full and uniquely different bathroom. There is a huge indoor kitchen with absolutely everything one could ever need, and then some. The palapa has a full outside kitchen, which is where the wedding food was prepared.

From the time we first contacted the owner (Kelly) until the final drive down the hill, every single one of our hopes and expectations were exceeded.

For anyone looking for the perfect wedding, look no further. You have found it.

Thank you Kelly, Miguel, Dora and all the others that made our daughters wedding so very very special.

Incredible property with stunning views made for a perfect wedding setting!
We were fortunate enough to host our wedding in Hacienda Antigua and it was truly spectacular!We wanted to host a fun, yet intimate wedding that was a little more authentic to the roots of Mexico. We explored multiple areas, but didn't want the typical resort hotel experience. Eventually that led us to San Pancho, a charming town about 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta.We then stumbled across Hacienda Antigua. Located about 10 minutes from Lo de Marcos and 20 minutes from San Pancho.The home itself was spectacular. The decor is amazing and reminiscent of a traditional hacienda. We had a little over 100 guests comfortably set up on the event lawn overlooking the ocean at sunset (I believe capacity is up to 150 people) There is an outdoor palapa that is set up for both bar and food service as well. It provided a beautiful setting for both the ceremony, dinner and the dance to follow.Kelley was very responsive to the litany of questions we had regarding our wedding. Gabriel, the house manager was helpful and had our pre-selected list of groceries ready for our arrival. We also had some house staff prepare snacks the day prior to the wedding for the rehearsal, which worked out great and allowed us to focus on our wedding day.Sandra was our wedding planner (sandra lucia eventos) and did an excellent job coordinating the caterers and all the other event personnel.Overall, it more then exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend it.

Had our wedding at the Hacienda
We had our wedding at the hacienda and stayed there for a week with family as well. Without doubt, the hacienda is one of the most unique and beautiful properties we've ever seen. So much thought and care went into the design and construction of the property. Stone columns from an old church, giant paving stones from an old Mexican town, beautiful antique wooden doors from an antique church and so much more, all incorporated into the building. Just amazing. The wedding ceremony and dinner were held on the spacious lawn, with dancing under the huge palapa. People even made it into the pool after dancing the night away. It makes for a top notch wedding venue and very different than a beach wedding.

Magnificent property, the best for our wedding
My husband and I were married at Hacienda Antigua at the end of October. We had such a memorable experience and would recommend the hacienda to anyone for either an escape from busy life or any special event. The hacienda itself is as impressive as the photos, with a lot of care and attention put into the decor and ambience. I was a little worried about the size of the pool, as it looks more like a fountain in the photos. But it is a proper size pool - not deep, but it is big and comfortable. The facilities - kitchen, bathroom, A/C - are modern and comfortable.

It was also the perfect venue for our wedding - our wedding guests really appreciated the setting, the sunset views of the ocean, etc. You do have to drive about 15-20 minutes from San Pancho to get there, but if you are lucky enough to have adventurous friends and family, this should not be an issue.

I am trying to think of constructive criticism, but cannot come up with much. The only downside (which may be upside to some) is that it is a 45-60 minute drive from PV and Sayulita. If you forget something important - say, you need more alcohol or you forget a guest - it can take a while to rectify. But if you plan ahead, it's not an issue.

Kelley was also super helpful and responsive to our questions, as we did not see the venue prior to the actual wedding. Sure, there are some rules to follow, but it was not overly restrictive and we were allowed to make it our home for the days we were there.

We sincerely hope to return.

Dream wedding venue!
Kelley, and her incredible Hacienda Antigua, are something out of a dream. By far the most elegant, stylish, comfortable and incredible place any of our wedding guests had ever stayed. The staff were exceptional - the food each day was amazing, the decor, the location up on the private hill - truly this place is a hidden gem and one my husband and I will return to year after year.

Gabriel, the property manager, was so accommodating and what I loved about this team was nothing was impossible - we decided to change our wedding venue to this hacienda the day before and of course, nothing was too much, nothing was impossible and Kelley let us with no issue whatsoever. They really are incredible and I cannot recommend this villa highly enough.
