Latest Guest Review:

This a wonderful hotel, located in a quiet, yet convenient area of SCDLC. The rooms are beautifully appointed and heated (and sometimes a fireplace, depending on the room) is available. The staff are also very helpful in making arrangements, whether that be breakfast at the hotel, transportation, or tours. They are very accommodating. A good value when in SCDLC.

One of the warmest welcomes that we received in our 17-day travel throughout the states of Chiapas, Campeche, the Yucatan and Quintana Roo was from Maria Jose Villalobos of Hotel Villas Casa Morada.  Staff member Armando Montesinos was also very prompt in answering one of our queries prior to arrival on how to get from Tuxtla Gutierrez airport to San Cristobal de Las Casas, even giving us the direct link for ADO Buses.

Our stay was complete with the opportunity to enjoy more local Mexican dishes for breakfast whilst chatting with Ernst Riedwyl, Director of Hotel Villas Casa Morada.

We were intrigued about the Tesoros Group in Mexico that the Hotel Villas Casa Morada belonged to.  It was the first time we had come across this group in our travels throughout Mexico.
