“A standby with lovely view of lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

The food here is always good to very good. The outside tables on the lake are very peaceful, but service can be a bit slower out there as the waiters can forget about you. Allow extra time to get your bill as that has always seemed to be a hang up here. They have recently renovated the bar area, and I haven't been back since. But the house wine is pretty bad. Stick with a name brand that you recognize, or beer!

“Very nice hotel, bad timing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

We had the honeymoon suite and it was wonderful. The hotel is located in the village of Ajijic but on a street that is out of the main noise area. The room was very spacious, the breakfast was wonderful, the entire staff was friendly and helpful. It was almost the perfect stay. The only downside is that they were (are?) doing construction at the hotel and it was quite noisy during the day, so much so that it was not possible to take a nap or even to sit and relax on what could have been a very relaxing environment.

I would definitely recommend the hotel but I would advise calling in advance to be sure that the construction is finished if that sort of thing is important to you.

“Hotel very good food ok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

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.

“Lovely Views, Varied Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

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.
