This was our first trip to Ajijic and our stay at Bellissimo’s was absolutely wonderful. Your host Linda will add volumes to your visit by providing an out of this world one of a kind setting that has everything you could want, many suggestions for restaurants, and things to do Linda is so helpful with getting drivers and make reservations. Then the absolute best is her stories of her life and years in this special place - get ready to be inspired and laugh!!! 😊

We have discovered the most restful getaway in Ajijic, Mexico, just 30 minutes outside of Guadalajara airport on Lake Chapala. We stayed at the luxurious Bellissimo's Boutique Hotel, where they spoiled us rotten. There are many activities close by to enjoy and the hotel will arrange transportation and the activities. Bellissimo’s is in the quaint town of old Ajijic on Lake Chapala, and is only a 5 minute walk to the lakeside. Bellissimo's is true luxury with its exceptional decor and one of a kind artwork displayed throughout the hotel. But the biggest plus is that you are treated like royalty. The rooms are luxurious and the entire experience was incomparable. I loved the gourmet breakfasts, as well as the glass elevator and the friendly environment. The town of Tlaquepaque is only 35 minutes away, San Juan Cosala Hot Springs is 20 minutes, Guadalajara shopping and museums an hour. This will be a yearly vacation destination for us!

My wife and I were completely delighted and surprised when we checked into Bellissimo’s Boutique Hotel in historic Ajijic on Lake Chapalla. From the personalized greeting gift and custom welcome plaque to the warm welcome by the owner, we felt as if our arrival had been excitedly anticipated. This was to be our vacation home for the next several days. Our large suite consisted of a luxurious sleeping room with an attached sitting area for relaxing and reading. The beautiful decorations and artwork, sumptuous bedding, personal fridge and microwave, plus a beautiful work desk are only a partial description of our vacation domain. The bathroom had a roomy jetted tub and spacious shower, along with personal robes, plentiful linen and thoughtfully included toiletries in case we had forgotten anything. Their website photos give a great view of what I'm talking about. Ours was a very personalized experience. Guests never feel crowded, because Bellissimo’s offers just 3 suites in the main building, one detached casita off the private pool plus an amazing and huge penthouse suite located on the very top level. We also spent time visiting with Linda, the creator and proprietor of this mini-resort, and were amazed at the detail and extra touch that were included in the design and development of the boutique hotel. Each morning we were served a masterpiece breakfast consisting of bountiful fresh fruit dishes, plus master-chef entrees of omelets or any of a number of other custom cooked specialties. Bellissimo’s is located in the historic center of Ajijic, a one-time fishing village on the shore of Lake Chapala. It is just an 8-minute stroll from the hotel to the lakeshore walk, which features small outdoor markets, restaurants and picnic areas where local families mix with visitors in a most friendly setting. Ajijic is about a 40-minute drive from Guadalajara, the 2nd largest city in Mexico. This was our first, but definitely not our last visit to Bellissimo’s. To quote Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator, “I’ll be back!”

I have to say that our stay at Bellissimo's surpassed our expectations. Not only is Linda an amazing host, she has found the way to make the guests feel at home, at a very luxurious home. The detail she has put into every corner of her hotel makes me think it is a source of happiness for her and fortunately for us, she was willing to share it.

If Ajijic is the hidden gem of Mexico, Bellissimo’s is the jewel in the crown. Bellisdimo’s lives up to its name sake and much more. Part art gallery, part Tuscan villa , unique beauty and luxury that is welcoming and fun, note the thoroughly amazing mosaic pool and gourmet breakfasts. Linda, the owner/proprietor is the epitome of hospitality and accommodation. My wife and I spent 10 days at Bellissimo’s and always felt our enjoyment and satisfaction were the highest priority. We stayed in the “Portofino”on the 2nd floor, an exquisite suite that added that something special- the intangible that makes vacations a little magical. Diane R. New York, NY
