Business traveler, I like the location, but it's just an old hotel. Could be spectacular, but right now (June 2015) it's just old and run down. Besides the infrastructure, they have no concept of service in restaurant. Never checked back after delivering dinner, so didn't sell me another beer I would have liked to order. Left the menu on table... More

We took a bus here from the town we were visiting to relax and be closer to the airport the day before we left Mexico. Overall the resort was nice, clean, & had friendly staff. My only complaint was that the bathroom in my room was run down. The water pressure was very low and it never really got warm.... More

This place has a unique location in the whole Guadalajara's metropolitan zone. The view and surroundings are unique. The building is also very nice. Then you go in and start noticing that the place is untouched (which in the lobby and garden areas it's OK), the resting areas smell of old dust and the furniture looks like it has been... More

First the breakfast buffet was excellent. Also hotel located on top of hill, where you can see all of downtown Guadalajara. That's about the only thing good to say about this hotel. The hotel needs major renovations, I mean everything. Just walking to your room is dangerous, the rock pavement needs to go. Pool is old, bed to hard, carpet... More

Yes, if your're looking for a disco that has a panoramic view of all the lights of Guadalajara, this would be one to visit for a night. We came here with three Mexican friends of mine, two women and my friend Manuel from Veracruz. We had a blast dancing to the disco hits from the 70s. They played "I feel... More

This hotel is ok. Not worth the money as there are many nicer hotels in town. It looks like an old cocaine sanctuary from the 70's. After reading up on it, it was. Rooms are old, bed sucked, amenities sucked. Service was stuck up. But food was pretty good and things seemed clean. Old and falling apart but clean.
