“Beautiful Garden Setting in the Heart of Ajijic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2011

We stayed at Los Artistas over Easter weekend this year. From the moment we arrived, we were enchanted by the lovely garden setting. Los Artistas is the perfect place to relax--whether you want to take a swim in the pool, sit on the porch and enjoy the surroundings, or rest in your pleasingly decorated room. The location in Ajijic is very convenient for walking to shops, the lake, and the plaza. Highly recommend!

While traveling in Mexico and the USA, we stay at B & B's whenever the opportunity presents itself. My wife and I just returned from a lovely two day stay in Ajijic. While there, we were lucky enough to snag a room at Los Artistas B & B. Let me say that Los Artistas is just possibly the best B & B we've ever stayed at in Mexico, and possibly the USA.

The interior of the home is not just beautifly furnished and appointed. It is also inviting and welcoming from the moment you step across the threshold until you're back in your car headed home. The bedroom was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, lovingly prepared by Soccoro, their cook of many years at the B & B.

However, the highlight of our stay was unquestionably the garden. It was in a word, "palacial". The garden draws you out of the home into an environment that is both lush and musical. The music is provided by an incredible variety of song bids that hang out in this garden and splash in the central fountain all day long and serenade you with their song.

We will be back. This B & B was a hit!

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Los Artistas B&B in Ajijic (Lake Chapala). The accommodations were great. The main building is beautiful with a lot of interesting Mexican furnishings. The breakfasts were varied and very good. The owners, Kent and Linda, were very friendly and helpful as were the staff such as the breakfast cook, the gardener and the maids.

When we planned to stay a month, we were concerned it was too long for a B&B. We couldn’t have been more wrong. In fact, we met other guests there who were also there for a month as well as other those who were there for shorter periods. While the need to eat out adds to the cost, we wondered if it would have been fairly lonely renting a house or condo.

The B&B is in an excellent location in Ajijic – just a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of the center of the village. We walked everywhere in Ajijic. It is such a typical Mexican town. However, there was bus transportation (and taxis) when we needed it – such as visiting other towns in the area. The restaurants are excellent. And the weather is tops!

We were surprised that there is so much to do in Ajijic. There is every organization of interest, siteseeing as well as cultural events - Mexican as well as Canadian/American. Would you believe the Russian National Ballet and amateur theatre in their own building? We felt very safe walking through the village after hours and the Mexican people are very friendly. We’re coming back!

Room Tip: Try the guest room in the main building.

From the moment you walk through the front gate on the first day till closing the gate behind you three weeks late,r you leave refreshed , relaxed and wanting to come back . The hospitality is amazing from Kent , Linda and all their staff . The other guests agreed that it is a perfect place to stay .

From the minute we walked into Los Artistas we felt welcomed. Our hostess, Carol, who was caretaking while the owners were away, was friendly and suggested great things for us to do while we explored Ajajic. The breakfasts were scrumptious and we absolutely loved the B&B's meticulously landscaped gardens. The location was walking distance to everything as well. We certainly had a memorable vacation and plan to revisit in the future!

A wonderful safe, secure garden setting where you can relax and read, bird watch etc or socialize with other guests around the 'breakfast table' to solve the worlds problems or find out what's new in town and where are the best eateries this year. Staff and management are are very helpful in assisting in any needs or interests you may want to pursue
