As I wrote before, we visited the town Valle de Bravo and loved it. It’s only about a 2 hour drive from Mexico City, and we took an Uber there.
We stayed at La Casa Rodavento, a small boutique hotel right next to the town. It was only two minutes walking to all the shopping and restaurants. No kids allowed there which for me is a bonus. Don’t worry if you have kids, since there’s also Hotel Rodavento. It’s located about 25 min away from town, it’s beautiful, and they allow kids. It’s more secluded in the woods and the spa is also located there. Last option is Cinco Rodavento in the middle of the city.
Had a great room on the bottom floor. There are 2 floors. We appreciated the welcome shots 🙂
Huge bathroom with a big shower, an outdoor shower, and bathtub. Nice products too and mirrors for selfies 😉
The first day was cloudy and rainy, so just took a short stroll in town.
We ate at our hotel and the food is good. Not a huge menu but the little desserts churros are to die for!!!!
Next day we had a beautiful sunny day. Pictures from the pool at the hotel and the view from the second-floor rooftop. The rooftop has a hottub by the way, but never had the time to use it, and I even missed taking a picture of it.
The town is so cute and amazing. I love the small alleys everywhere.
Great shopping, cute cafes and restaurants. Me being a caffeine addict, i tried two places for coffee and both where great. This one was called La Machinhuepa Valle. Cute place and made friends with this dog that followed us into the cafe.
The best one was Caos Cafe. Beans roasted right there and I made another cute friend 🙂 Look at his different colored eyes, so cool!
Explored an art gallery, did some shopping, and peaked inside of a church. Could’ve spent more time in town, but we had massages booked so had to go…
As I wrote on top, the spa is located at their other place called Hotel Rodavento. Very glad we got to see that place too because it’s different and very relaxing in the woods. It was pouring down when we where there, and it felt like we where in the jungle!
I had booked a 2h package with massage and a facial treatment. Unfortunately my masseuse was either not very well trained or just not into massaging people. I was pretty disappointed after. When we then asked to go to the outdoor pool and hottub we were told they close at 6pm and it was now 5.40pm. We were also informed that it was not included in the massage package to use the pool or hottub. I’ve never been to a spa where pool, tubs or saunas are not included. I wish they would’ve informed me of these details when making a reservation. We still checked out the area and I can imagine it be pretty relaxing to sit out there. If you paid for it that is 😉
After talking to the manager about my massage, he offered me a 15% discount. I told him that I’m not very pleased with that. He made a call and 30% was taken off the total bill. That was satisfactory as my partner’s massage was good.
Instead of ‘hanging lip’ over the spa experience we decided to try their restaurant. This hotel has such beautiful walk-ways and a very nice view from the restaurant.
Food was very good and stuffed my face with the mini churros they had at this place too 🙂 Next time in Valle de Bravo I would like to stay at this place too.
Next morning we had breakfast and then spent some time trying to get a ride back to Mexico City. Uber doesn’t run out there so after some phone calls we found a local driver to take us back. Next time I would probably handle this before, but hey, in Mexico everything always works out one way or another 🙂 I really really recommend a visit to Valle de Bravo! I would go back right away if I didn’t have so many other spots on my to-visit list here in Mexico!
Hope you are having or had a great Halloween. I’ll share some of mine in next post. Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos is a big holiday here. One of my best friends from Sweden arrives here tomorrow. Going to be so much fun and can’t wait to show her CDMX! And eat the Swedish candy she hopefully brings me hahahaaa 🙂
Happy Halloweeen, Puma
