“One of the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Quinta del Sol is located in central Ajijic just a block away from the lakeshore and Ajijic's malecon. The property is immaculately maintained and has a warm, comfortable ambiance with spacious well appointed rooms. A delicious, hot breakfast is made to individual request in a beautiful dining room set with local hand loomed linens. Eleanor is an exceptional host, she is like your own private concierge... as well as being welcoming and hospitable, she is very knowledgeable about local restaurants, shops, transportation, etc. I have travelled across Canada staying in B&Bs in every province and without hesitation, this little B&B in Mexico is outstanding!

Having stayed in a number of B&B's in North America, the Quinta del Sol has been by far the best to date. Not only was the property immaculately kept, our hosts spared no attention to detail, whether it was in their beautiful Mexican decor, having all the conveniences of home on hand, or the fabulous and varied breakfasts we enjoyed during our three night stay. Eleanor and Rick were very engaging, yet while we were in our suite, the parlour, or the grounds, it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Eleanor was a wealth of information about Ajijic and the three restaurants she recommended were first class. Her tips on things to see, where to shop, and how to get around we're excellent and Ajijic was easy to get around. As regular visitors to Mexico we can hardly wait to come back!!

Room Tip: Both inside suites are excellent but for total privacy the casita at the rear of the property is exc...

We had a great time here. The grounds are so beautiful, the amenities are first class. And...if you get tired of hotel that have showers that spit out water, come here for a first class spa like shower in your own room. The breakfast can last you most of the day and the owners are very accommodating and wonderful people. Come visit and enjoy!

Room Tip: Please ask owners if you need WiFi as to which are best locations.

My wife and and visited Quinta del Sol for the first time about 3 years ago and recently visited in October with my 1 year old. Quinta del Sol is absolutely relaxing... Eleanor and Rick are the perfect hosts always taking that extra step to make sure our stay is the best it could possibly be.

We love enjoying the swimming pool with its beautiful garden when we are not out and about.

Until next time!

My husband and I stayed at a deluxe room in this hotel for 3 days and 2 nights as part to a larger trip to Guadalajara. In a way, we knew what to expect after reading the reviews given to this boutique hotel in Tripadvisor. However, it is great to be able to confirm that the hotel is a tastefully decorated hacienda-style of house, very comfortable, and quiet. There are nice patios and green areas to relax the eyes. If you happen to visit, we fully recommend having a massage around the corner at the Spa. We'll be back with our adult children on a different visit.

A quick note to thank Eleanor & Rick for a wonderful weekend at their B&B. It is indeed charming! We enjoyed the calm, relaxing time we spent there and enjoyed our talks about Ajijic with them. Can't really add much to other reviews. It is a place as stated and we enjoyed it very much. Perhaps someday we will return.

Indeed a great place to stay! From the beautiful gardens to the wonderful breakfasts, this is why they get such good reviews. A B&B is more than just a place to sleep and Quinta proves this again and again! Sleeping is wondefrful on comfy mattresses (Mexico remember usually has rock hard mattresses) with silky sheets. A cool breeze from the patio doors cools the room nicely. The main room and dining room where breakfast is served are both tastefully decorated in Mexican style and inviting with a basket of snacks on the table and a tea cart loaded with cordials for a night cap in front of the fireplace. Of course there are books about Mexico and Ajijic as well as novels for some quiet time. We didn't use the pool but it was clean and inviting looking. Now for the main course - a breakfast to last the day! Whatever you wish starting with homemade pastries, fresh fruit & smoothies and followed by omlets made to order or yummy orange french toast.
Quinta is located right in town near to everything and Eleanor is helpful with ideas for dining. Hope to be able to return someday.

Room Tip: La Casita is near to the pool and has a private terrace. If you ask, Eleanor will bring you coffee t...
