Wish I had stayed here on my recent trip to Chapala! I had a delicious breakfast at the hotel twice. The staff was warm and helpful with my inquiries. Se habla ingles! Maria helped me, and was an excellent hostess. A special asset to this charming villa hotel. I love the

This small hotel of ten rooms is a beautiful adobe building with a nice garden at the front and back (no pool). It is right on the Malecon across the road from the lake so you’re right in the middle of the action-the fantastic Danza de los Voladores (dance of the flying) by the

Although I am half of a couple from the US,(!) I'm glad you feel like family and I do want to wholeheartedly thank you for your very comprehensive review. You took the time to tell folks about the details they often look for: breakfast (which often falls short in other hotels!) and the warmth of the staff, and some of the exciting sites of the malecon. I'm glad we could contribute to your appreciation for this glorious place, Lake Chapala, and I hope you'll come back soon!

Benny is fun, isn't he? He's perfected a signature drink for the hotel, a raspberry mojito! The bar service is still only on request but we're hoping to train the whole staff to make a few key drinks. Just to be sure everyone us fun :)

Hotel is beautiful and very comfortable. The service is very good, the staff is very friendly. Delicious breakfast is included. Very clean. It is also a good quiet place to relax. Highly recommend. We have stayed there 3 times and plan on going back.

We hope to surprise you with some major improvements on your next visit. We're almost finished with the construction of two new rooms, a pool and jacuzzi, and a massage room! Come back again soon. And than you for your kind review.

If you want to stay in Chapala rather than Ajijic, this is the place. Lovely spot, beautiful gardens, clean rooms. Breakfast on the front porch was simple but elegant. You can have breakfast here without staying at the hotel at a very modest cost.

Thanks so much for mentioning that! We are serving a more expanded breakfast menu, and we have a great new kitchen stove to make it! And thank you for your compliments. The gardens are a little disrupted right now because we are adding, after all these years, a swimming pool and jacuzzi, plus a massage room and two new rooms to the hotel. Come back and see all the changes!
