Los Artistas B & B
Ranked #10 of 26 Ajijic B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 27, 2011

My 2nd visit to Los Artistas B&B was as wonderful as the 1st visit (4 years ago). Great location in the heart of Ajijic - walking distance to everything, including the lake and the town plaza. Beautiful grounds, lovely rooms, a great breakfast and Kent & Linda are wonderful hosts. Couldn't imagine staying anywhere else! They can even arrange for a driver to pick you up at (and take you back to) the Guadalajara airport 30 minutes away. Can't wait for my next visit!

My husband and I spent a wonderful week at Los Artistas in Ajijic. The large property is framed by the most beautiful gardens, which look and smell wonderful, and serenade you with the sounds of nature both day and night. Our room in the casita was decorated with local color. Linda and Kent were so generous with their time when we had questions about where to go, what to do, who to call, life in the village, etc. They made sure we felt at home. The staff is so friendly and polite, and Socorro's breakfasts were a great way to start off our days. You can easily walk to the shops, restaurants, lake, or plaza from Los Artistas. We look forward to our next opportunity to visit!

Every room faces the beautiful garden, full with exotic plants and native artifacts. A good morning wake is a mango that falls on your rooftop and rolls down to the patio. We loved it. This B&B is located on a quiet street, yet close to the village, where the main Restaurant and shops are. All streets are old cobblestone, so bring a pair of good walking shoes.

Our whole wedding party stayed in Los Artistas 10 years ago when we had our wedding in Ajijic. It was absolutely magical - gorgeous gardens, refreshing pool perfect for outdoor gather with our friends and of course our most gracious Innkeepers Linda and Kent. We returned last month, and were delighted to see that it had not changed at all - still perfect! I felt relaxed from the moment I entered the door!!! We're already planning our next visit - this time spending even more time at Los Artistas. Thanks Kent and Linda!

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

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.
