“We loved La Nueva Posada!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

For our week's stay in Ajijic, we were fortunate to choose La Nueva Posada. We enjoyed the true Mexican charm of the hotel, the hearty breakfasts (included in the room price) and the friendly staff. We found our room clean, up to date and a great value. Having met Michael Eager, one of the owners, I'm confident any issue a guest might have would be dealt with quickly. My advice is go there, relax, enjoy wonderful meals and make new friends in a warm atmosphere rich in old world charm.

Room Tip: Garden Rooms are great. Inside rooms are a wonderful value but not as big.

This is our second visit to this hotel,and like the first, very enjoyable, with a large comfortable and quiet room and excellent meals. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the prices very reasonable. We have already booked for a longer stay in 2015. M & RC, Toronto

There is a difference between charming and just plain old and run down. Our room was spacious, I'll give you that, but we overlooked the white kitchen roof. It was hot and stuffy, and greasy burnt oil wafted into the room all day. We HAD to use the fan which squeaked and cranked all night long. The lobby traffic echoed all day and long into the night. The furniture and decor in the rooms look to be the original from 30 years ago. Curtains are badly faded and sagging. The mold in the shower was not a nice touch. Two area rugs were literally shredding apart. The spider webs in the windows didn't make for a great view. This hotel needs attention to details. Clean the webs, oil the fans, get rid of shredded rugs. If I can see it, why can't they? The location of the hotel is good, close to town, but not too close. It's cheap--$75/night for cash. If you want cheap, go for it. Otherwise, spend a bit more for nice digs.

Room Tip: do not get 105. It's on the street. Overlooks the kitchen roof. It's hot. The fan squeeks...

Is it the enchanting Mexican Colonial architecture? Is it the wonderfully helpful and friendly staff? Is it the Eager family who have been welcoming guests for decades and know each of them by name? Is it the spectacular views of lake and mountain? is it the delicious breakfast in the cheery dining room or a margarita and dinner later in the day in the beautiful lakeside garden? Is it the comfortable, charming rooms? Is it the delightful blend of Mexican and International? IT'S ALL OF THESE! This is a truly magical place, one we return to over and over - and will continue to do so.

La Nueva Posada is great. Spacious, comfortable rooms, great indoor/outdoor restaurant, wonderful hot breakfast included. The staff is very friendly, English speaking, and very accommodating. We have been there twice, and would go again.

No need to look any further for First Class lodging in Ajijic. The Posada interior is beautifully restored, rooms are spacious and well furnished, several with balconies overlooking the lake. The onsite restaurant is excellent providing both indoor seating comfort and shaded outdoor seating in a well treed spacious lakeside setting. Front desk and restaurant staff are courteous, efficient and bilingual. Karen and I spent 8 nights here in February 2014 and enjoyed every minute.
Perfect location, quiet comfort, caring service, all at a reasonable price.
Try it, you won't regret it!

After spending several days in rural Mexico, the town of Ajijic was a welcome break. La Nueva Posada offered large rooms, great location on the water and reasonable rates. The American breakfast choices included wIth the room were wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return.
