Each room is unique and elegant at this pricey boutique hotel in the hills five blocks above the malecón. Public spaces also exude wealth and privilege: 16th- through 19th-century antiques are placed throughout, water pours from fonts into Talavera-tile-lined basins, mammoth tables grace open dining areas. The Celestial Room has a wondrous view of Bahía de Banderas and the cathedral's tower from its open-air, thatch-roof living room. You can enjoy live music with complimentary cocktails in the early evening, and there are fabulous views of the bay from the second-floor restaurant, Hacienda San Angel Gourmet, which serves excellent international food beginning at 6 pm. Non-guests are welcome by previous reservation.
