My original review for the Ajijic Suites was for a stay 3 winters ago. My positive opinion from that trip, of both the hotel premises and its' hosts, continues to this second review. More recently, and for this past winter, I returned to Ajijic and spent 2 months in the Violeta Suite, from mid-November to mid-January. I returned to Ajijic...

Thanks for the helpful & kind review, David! You know it's always been a pleasure having you to stay with us & we're only sad we won't have the same pleasure this coming winter. We wish you a comfortable stay in your new casita & hope you'll still come by for a visit now & then.

I attended a professional meeting in Ajijic and stayed with Elaine in a wonderful little apartment with kitchen and view of the central patio and fountain. Elaine went above and beyond to help me get settled: finding a place to eat and get groceries, helping with transportation arrangements and providing me with British tea bags for the kettle in my...

Spent two weeks at Ajijic Suites. The hotel is clean and comfortable. A lovely garden with a fountain that lulls you to sleep at night. Convenient to everything. You can walk anywhere in the village from here. The owners, Elaine and Luis are very friendly and welcoming. They are a veritable encyclopedia of the area, and if they don't have...

I was impressed the moment I arrived at Ajijic Suites. The proprietors, Elaine Kellaway and her husband Luis are warm and friendly. An American friend of mine has stayed there for years, so as soon as I got there Elaine, Luis and the rest of us sat in the beautiful courtyard with fountain and slaked our thirst with some cooled...

Thanks for the great review, Walter! It was a pleasure to have you stay with us for the first time, although we wish it could have been under happier circumstances. We look forward to your return in November - hopefully the first of many "returns" so that you, too, like Tim, become part of the "family". Hasta pronto!

From my first encounter with Elaine,her professionalism and thoughtfulness were evident. After a 2 hr. delay in our flight schedule, Elaine still made sure that someone was at the airport to fetch us.She graciously answered my many,many questions about moving to Mexico and made us feel so very welcome within the well-appointed Suites. Not only were the rooms meticulously clean,...

I stayed in the small Guanacaste suite, which met my needs very well. Elaine and Luis are both professional and friendly, and their property fits so well with the vibe of Ajijic - friendly, filled with interesting people, safe, clean. You will find opportunities to chat with other travellers - but also lots of time for privacy and peaceful siestas....

Few, if any, places in the heart of Ajijic offer what Elaine and Luis do - your own self-contained, beautifully decorated Mexican-style, well-appointed suite, with - wait for it - a well-equipped kitchenette. If, like me, you are NOT an early-morning person, i.e. don't always feel too sociable at that time of day so don't do B&Bs very well, you...
