About Hacienda / 5 Top Reasons to Stay


          Why stay in a big box, impersonal chain hotel...when you can  

          enjoy the ambiance of a cozy, boutique hotel along the coast!

          The Blue Seas Courtyard is more than just a great room next

          to the beach.  We offer our guests the adventure of experiencing

          wonderous Old-World Mexico without even leaving the country!
