We stayed here for two nights when we first arrived in ajijic. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms clean and comfortable and the view from the balcony breathtaking. The outdoor seating was to live for but we were disappointed somewhat with the food. Breakfast was included and was very good. But dinner wasn't great. I had fish and it tasted as if it wasnt cooked properly. The atmosphere both inside and out is beautiful.

La Nueva Posada has an eclectic menu for both lunch and dinner. The dishes are well executed and service is attentive and obliging. It's outdoor setting, overlooking the lake, is spectacular and the kind owner (Mr. Eager) is much in evidence, making sure all is well.

This traditional favorite for all occasions is on a slide, perhaps a result of local crime-induced reduced tourism and patronage. We have eaten here several times each of the past three years to enjoy the fine ambience in and out, and good, reasonable food. Until recently the service was slow but tolerable; now less so. Three weeks ago we attended to get the popular daily special to find it was not available because the fryer was broken. One week ago we attended at dinner, with only two tables of twelve occupied (seven other people). Forty minutes after we ordered (the daily special) the waiter came to inform us our dinner was on the way, which it was, seven minutes later. A few minutes later the table with five, which had already ordered when we arrived, also received the daily special. The wait staff on the past few visits has been lackadaisical, as the kitchen staff apparently is also. At least the food is good (not remarkable, though) and the prices reasonable.

A delightful dinner under a starry sky and twinkling lights, two birthdays were celebrated this October/November. Wonderful staff.

I have just returned from Ajijic and another visit to La Nueva Posada and was disappointed in the food and also upset to see poor Paco the resident parrot suffering in the terrible storms and high winds while I was there. I had written a letter to the owners after seeing the deplorable conditions this magnificent, intelligent bird has to deal with. He has black plastic covering part of his cage and no view or air for the summer heat and now no protection from the elements and the terrible storms. He looked so sad and frightened. The food dish was dirty and the water was disgusting.

The owner had replied to my concerns in May that a new cage was being built for Paco but of course nothing had been done to help this poor creature. Parrots are highly intelligent birds and he had no distraction, no toys and the cage is falling apart. I offered to help ion any way I could and even offered to find another home for Paco.

At least last time the food here was good and the setting is lovely. Right on the lake and very comfortable but having to see this poor bird frightened and cold was too much and my friends had to leave. We could not find anyone to talk to to about Paco, or even anyone interested.

The food was also not good this trip and we all left disappointed in the food and upset about Paco. Only good thing was the service and our waiter was excellent. I have sent yet another letter off to the owner. Hope....
