If your going to go to Ajijic your choices are limited, So this is one of the better choices. If you do stay here stay on main level and pool side it is very nice to walk out your room and right to the pool. The pool by the way is very nice as are the grounds very beautiful. There...

The hotel is on the picturesque shoreline of Lake Chapala and caters to the resort crowd. The grounds are very colorful with many varieties of flowers and flowering trees. They serve an outdoor Brunch buffet on Sundays that is a great mixture of Mexican flavors with both seafood and a variety of meats. Be sure to try Tamarind and watermellon...

For the price you should get more. It's a old constrictions with old amenities. The rooms are big with old mattresses.. And no food service after 11 pm I will not give more that 3 stars. Overall if you don't have any other options stay here.

Great location in front of Chapala Lake! Very large rooms with nice heavy furniture. Very nice green areas and plants. Very clean. Very noisy, no isolation in windows or door, so you can hear the cleaning staff in the hallway or excited children in the garden. Mediocre restaurant and service.

Stayed at this lovely, spacious property in late February for four days. Gorgeous scenery overlooking the lake-enjoyed awesome dawns and sunsets. Spacious and well-treed. Staff were very skilled and professional. Located in la floresta, a beautiful, upscale area with fabulous homes and great walking streets. A fun, 10 minute walk to the town centre. We were with a group and...

I really liked this hotel. I've read a lot of reviews about how this is not a 4 or 5 star hotel that they claim to be. But bear in mind, this is Mexico we're talking about. Me and my colleagues stayed at this hotel for eight nights and attended to a conference that was held at the venue and...

I went for a business meeting, and I would go back again. The setting is beautiful, and the staff are excellent. I'm afraid I can't speak to the rooms, but would recommend at least going for breakfast to enjoy the setting. We kept on getting little birds visiting us throughout!

We stayed here 3 years ago and chose to return this year when it fitted our itinerary. We enjoyed the same beautiful grounds, the spacious and very clean room and the excellent food. We had lunch (one of the best tortilla soups in Mexico), dinner and breakfast, all with good food, prompt service and at reasonable prices. We were in...
