“One of the Best”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Ajijic Suites is a very comfortable, clean and quiet place to stay. The rooms are quaint and well equipped. The facility has a beautiful courtyard complete with a large table if you are travelling with friends or family and want to sit outside the room and visit. They are also centrally located so you are walking distance to most stores and restaurants. The biggest asset of Ajijic Suites is the owner/manager Elaine. She is a hands-on person, and a wealth of information. If you want to know what’s on, where to go, how to get somewhere, she is always more than happy to help you. We have been twice now, and look forward to returning later this year.

This will have been our third trip to stay at the Ajijic Suites and again, it was a very pleasant experience. The owners Elaine and Luis are wonderful and make you feel at home. You can arrange for Luis to pick you up at the airport or the bus depot and it is nice to know that you have someone waiting for you when you arrive. All the units are unique and we have stayed in 3 different ones. This time we were in the Magnolia Suite which is on the second floor and has a little balcony that you can sit out on and enjoy the view. It faces south towards the lake and you get the sun all day and then can watch the sunset. Elaine lends her special touch to all the rooms and they are all decorated in a different colour theme. The beds are very comforable and all rooms have a kitchen which is very handy to have. Drinking water is also supplied in the rooms. Ajijic Suites is close walking distance to the main town area (10 minutes if that) so we can walk to all our favorite restaurants and shops. It is also only a 2 block walk up to the main street where the bus comes which will take you in either direction to Lake Chapala or to the other towns close by for a few pesos. We will definately come back to the Ajijic Suites!

Room Tip: If you want a view from your room choose a second floor unit.

Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review, Gayle; we really appreciate it! It's always a pleasure having you & Paul to stay, & we'll miss you next year when you check out Cuba instead of Ajijic! Hurry back & see us again soon, & enjoy a wonderful summer at home in Victoria!

Ajijic Suites is ideally located in a quiet part of town, with shops, services, the main square and local buses close by. My suite, accessed from the charming garden courtyard, was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well maintained. The well-equipped kitchenette provided all that I needed to make breakfast and the occasional light dinner. Above all, the hospitality offered by Elaine and Luis is exceptional--warm, friendly, attentive, helpful, kind and thoughtful. They truly create a home away from home for their guests. Access to VOIP and local phones plus WiFi help visitors stay connected, while the personal laundry service, available for a small fee, is a terrific bonus for people staying for a while. I feel very fortunate that I chose this as my snowbird residence for a month, and could not imagine staying anywhere else in the area.

If you're looking for a clean, well-furnished and maintained apartment (with in-room cooking facilities no less!), in a convenient location and at the right price, look no further. I found Ajijic Suites to be perfect for the two nights I stayed there. The hosts, Elaine and Luis, are welcoming and very accommodating and have done a great job with the interior decorations of the entire hotel including the lovely and peaceful garden courtyard. Estuve muy satisfecho!

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your stay with us, Klaus. We were glad you enjoyed your stay with us as much as we enjoyed your company. It makes a particularly pleasant change having another European to chat with. We were glad you were able to hire a cycle & use that as a means of getting out & about & exploring the surrounding area. Hopefully you've gone home with "food for thought" & we'll see you again some time in the future.

Ajijic Suites is a very convenient and economical place to stay in Ajijic. It has a quiet location, yet is close to everything. Its hosts are very friendly and helpful. Having Luis both pick you up and drop you off at the airport is the best way to go. He did this for me cheerfully in spite of the far too early am time of day! Elaine is very helpful in planning any activities you might want to do. Great hosts, great location, great weather! What more can I say, except that I wish my stay had been longer.

After having a house in Manzanillo for over 5 years, I finally ventured into the Sierra Madres to visit Ajijic that I had heard so much about. Ajijic Suites was the perfect place to stay with a wonderful room, hospitality, and central to everything we wanted to see. I visited with a girlfriend of mine, but will definitely be returning with my husband for a few days on our next stay in Manzanillo. Ajijic is in a beautiful setting, wonderful people and has a great climate. We really enjoyed the trip. Thank you Elaine and Luis for all your information and warm hospitality. Maribeth and Lala.

Thanks for the complimentary review, Maribeth! It was a pleasure having you & Lala to stay & we were glad that your stay was both enjoyable & rewarding! The nearby town of Tonala offers a plethora of artisan works at reasonable prices & I was relieved that even an interior designer/decorator (like you) could get "just the lamps" she was looking for! We look forward to the pleasure of your company again in the future - this time with your husband!
