My husband and I had a wonderful experience staying at the Hacienda del Lago for four days. It was incredibly beautiful and we spent hours relaxing in the courtyard, taking in all of the beautiful plants and architectural details. The owners have done a superb job of creating a magical oasis. Our room was wonderful as well; a great combination... More

The reason why I only gave 3 stars in for the missing restaurant service! The Hotel and its Garden area is truly beautiful and very well kept! We had the chance to see all rooms of the hotel and each one is different, and very well decorated, well equipped with flat screen TV, sounds system and nice Bathroom amenities. If... More

My wife and I spent three days at Hacienda del Lago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place is absolutely beautiful. A summer mansion that has been converted into a 4 room boutique hotel. The owners, Tony and Abraham, have done a beautiful job decorating the place. We were fortunate to stay in the master room which was beautifully appointed and... More

We just returned from a week at Hacienda del Lago, a wonderful example of the beauty of colonial Mexico. Behind the brightly painted high walls lies a bit of Mexican magic. The inner courtyard takes you back centuries and provides a cool, quiet retreat surrounded by the beauty of palm trees, bougainvillea, copa de oro and other tropical vegetation. We... More

When I first walk into this property I was taken back by unique Mexican charm "WOW". Each room is unique. Our room, was well decorated, had a king bed, sitting area, full kitchen and eating area overlooking the pool. Sitting by the pool watching butterflies and hummingbirds, nothing is more relaxing. The property is within easy walking distance of the... More

I've been to Hacienda del Lago before and it gave me great joy to go back. It's a spectacular setting with wonderful service and a terrific vibe. The convenience to the lake and access 3 blocks from town make it a perfect place to stay. There is no better lodging in Ajijic.

I don't like to knock anyone's enterprise for a few lapses due to human error, but whatever is happening recently at Hacienda del Lago needs to be looked into by the absentee owner/owners as soon as possible. Such a pity to see such a beautiful and appointed space such as this have less services than a low priced Motel 6.... More

It is unfortunate in the very rare occasion that we encounter unpleasant guests, such as in this case. It seems as though no matter what anyone did to try to ensure they had a pleasant stay, these guests were very combative and all around unpleasant. In an attempt to make conversation with the guests I repeatedly got the cold shoulder.... More

Last February, on our 3rd trip to Ajijic in 5 months, we discovered Hacienda Del Lago and fell in love. We had dinner and two days later returned for brunch, so we vowed to stay here the next time we were in Ajijic. In June I made reservations for the Garden Suite for 11 days in August. I have been...

I am a bit disheartened to read this review, as these guests never brought anything negative to our attention, I would have been more than happy to move them to another suite. I'm also horrified to find out that guests had a dog in the pool, this is obviously NOT permitted. We do have a seasonal restaurant that is currently... More

Hacienda del Lago is a beautiful lodging. My partner and I recently stayed at Hacienda del Lago for a week. We were checking Ajijic for real state opportunities. The setting is amazingly relaxing. The gardens are meticulously attended and the place is very quiet. Silence is sometimes interrupted by street merchants loudly announcing their products. The rooms are very well... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. During your stay our seasonal restaurant was closed. Starting September 15th we will be rolling out a new guest dining and cocktail menu. While we will not be offering a restaurant open to the public as we have in the past, I'm confident that our new guest dining menu will... More

During a 3 week stay in Mexico we stayed a couple days here. Absolutely georgeous and the staff was really nice like everyone in small town. The rooms were great and the location was perfect. Really enjoyed the entire 3 days in Ajijic Mexico. Super relaxing
