The purpose of my visit to Ajijic was to attend my own book signing for my latest novel, HOLY BETRAYAL.
About a year ago I stayed at Casa Blanca, during a business trip, and was more than pleased with the room assigned to me, staff and location. When I knew I would be making this latest trip to Ajijic, I naturally thought of Casa Blanca as the place to stay. This time I was even more lucky, I could book a room for an entire week at Casa Blanca, and, to my surprise an excellent full-menu restaruant (Laurent's) has been added to the establishment. That meant I could have beverages and finger foods served at my book signing and meet friends there for lunch, drinks or dinner.
The staff at Casa Blanca treated me like royalty. Those who have lugged several cartons of books around know how bulky and heavy they can be. One of the staff gladly carried the cartons, along with my luggage to my room and helped me move books the day of the book signing. That, in itself, was a bonus.
The restaurant (Laurent's) put its entire staff and restaurant at my disposal. It was my pleasure to hear everyone attending the book signing commenting on how wonderful the food was, the restaurant and hotel, the staff of both and the two lovely patios Casa Blanca keeps in sparkling condition..
The two friends who met me at the bus station in Guadalajara and transported me in their van to the hotel told me that although they have a selection of lovely hotels in Mexico, they would love to spend their next vacation at Casa Blanca. That, in itself, is a testimony of the charm of Casa Blanca.
Will I stay at Casa Blanca again--what a silly question--of course I will. The price is more than fair, the staff is wonderful, as is Joseph the owner (who was as concerned as I that my computer would be repaired before I departed), the location is an easy walk to el centro and its many shops, and those guests I met at Casa Blanca were vacationers from countries outside of Mexico as well as other cities in Mexico. Obviously the news of a great place to stay travels fast and far and wide.
