“Enjoyable!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stayed here in April for nine nights and are very glad that we did. The hotel was tastefully decorated and the themed rooms were a delight. We choose the "Hollywood" room and enjoyed the spacious bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and balcony. The linens were of very good quality and the bed was sooooo comfortable. Located across the street was the malecon which was a bonus because of the view as well as watching the locals having fun. Good restaurants and shops were recommendable and within walking distance. The hotel was elegant yet gave us a cozy, homey stay. The employees were always pleasant and accomodating as was management. What more can I say? We loved it!

Room Tip: Try the "Hollywood" suite.

It is the music.....no, the decor, or the lovely gardens, maybe the comfy bed and fab shower....or the romantic fire place. Add tastefully decorated for the holidays and super service! The musically themed rooms and beautiful art work make this a super stay. And the usual sunny weather helped to make our get away perfect! Cute bar too! And, there's a nice breakfast. We shall return.

Room Tip: The Guitar Room is right off the lobby and has 2 doors. One is sound proof! Did not have to climb s...

Once again, nothing but praise for a lovely afternoon tasting great wines in a hotel garden like paradise.

The hosts, the Wilshires were as usual most charming, with chocolate truffles, huge olives, gouda cheeses and strawberries to complement the wines.

With a pianist playing, I felt like I was in a movie set, oh wait...I sort of was...each room and the hotel decor is music themed.... movies, jazz, tango, and on it goes.

Looking forward to any and all events planned at this venue, and if you visit you will agree, the friendly fun staff, who even remembered us from a private party held there last year, gorgeous attention to details and folk who appreciate wines.

Viva Mexico, Viva Villa San Francisco in Chapala..........

Room Tip: Any room will be great...........Hollywood room has malecon view and lake.

We just got home from staying in the Lake Chapala region of Mexico. We found this little B&B on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed.We arrived a little early for check in so staff took our bags and kept them until our room was ready. We met the owner, a fellow Canadian, while waiting in the garden. He was very gracious and spent time telling us of all the great things to see and do in the area.Our room was small but luxurious and had a patio overlooking the garden on the ground level.The staff who are fluent in both Spanish and English
bent over backwards trying to make our stay a memorable one.They succeeded! We would not hesitate to stay at the Hotel San Francisco on out next visit.

Last Weekend, We did! We were impressed with the outstanding quality and detail displayed in each theme room, Opera, Jazz, Latin America, Safari and Broadway, to name a few. We enjoyed the most luxurious and comfortable beds/pillows that promoted deep and peaceful sleep in our Classical Guitar room. The food was flavorful whether we ate in the perfectly appointed table in the garden or on the front porch. The staff displayed personal pride in helping us and were polite in all situations. We highly recommend Hotel Villa San Francisco to all who enjoy luxurious living at reasonable prices. The added touch as we checked out was a music cd given to us. Thanks, Anthony, Owner, Caleb, Jorge and Jesse for this experience and we'll be back! Curt and Pat (9/12)

This past week I spent 5 nights at the luxurious Hotel Villa San Francisco in Chapala. Despite my delayed flight and with no luggage, I was warmly welcomed at midnight by Jesse who also volunteered to go out and purchase a toothbrush for me. From there my stay just got better. The hotel is located just one block for the lake activities. The quiet room was equipped with a very comfortable bed, music and a fireplace. The complimentary hot/cold breakfast was served each morning. The staff was always ready to help.

My stay was enjoyable in every way. I highly recommend this hotel and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
