“Excellent Place to Stay”
Reviewed May 4, 2008

Very nice accomodations right in the middle of Ajijic. Room was very clean and nicely decorated. Grounds are exceptional with a small pool and a very large and lush garden. Breakfasts are included and made-to-order by the cook, Socorro. By the way, the coffee is the best I've had in any hotel anywhere. Within easy walking distance of excellent restaurants and shopping. I couldn't recommend a B&B more highly. Finally, Los Artistas is handicap friendly - my wife is disabled - we had no problems with her wheelchair on the premises.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank you! Ken and Linda

Sorry that we missed seeing you directly, but our accommodations were perfecto! We loved our visit!

Jose and Sicorro provided for our every need and nourishment. Our room was clean, and daily made to our comfort. You have such a pleasant setting, close to bus lines and travel conveniences. The Jardin is beautiful! I exercised and swam in the pool every day! We both marveled over the flowers and the many nuances of culture and art tucked away in each little crevice and space. Can you tell, we loved our Ajijic experience! Jose’s referrals to local restaurants was totally correct! Thank you, Jose!

We could take the bus at a moments walk to all points.

We are coming back! Hope to meet you, as you have provided this wonderful place and experience.

Los Artistas B&B in the heart of Ajijic is a slice of paradise. The owners, Kent & Linda, are charming, helpful and gracious. The hacienda style 2-story home has 2 separate guest rooms on the ground floor, plus 3 more guest rooms in an adjacent casita and an additional guest room (the "studio") in another separate casita hidden away in the lush gardens. All guest rooms have their own private en-suite baths.

The rooms are decorated in colorful mexican motifs. You can't go wrong with any room you choose. The well-manicured grounds (thank you, Jose) are beautiful, lush and calming. A small lap pool is available for those who wish a refreshing dip.in the afternoon. Fountains provide a wonderful background music for relaxing siestas on the back patio.

Their full-time cook, Socorro, is wonderful. Breakfast on the sunny, glass-enclosed patio each morning ranges from fresh fruits & cereal to freshly made pancakes and cooked-to-order eggs.

While Los Artistas is a short walk to many excellent restaurants, shopping, the lake and the main plaza, the B&B is quiet & private. There is free wireless internet access available throughout the grounds of the B&B for those of you who have to be in touch with the office back home.

Kent & Linda can arrange, in advance, for a driver to meet your flight at Guadalajara airport and drive you to the front door of Los Artistas. The drive is a quick 25-30 minutes and costs around $35 U.S. (paid to the driver).

If you're looking for a charming, quiet, beautiful and affordable place to stay in the heart of Ajijic, this is it. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

  • Liked — The lush grounds of the B&B were beautifully maintained, quiet and peaceful.

Kent and Linda are warm and gracious hosts. They sit with their guests at breakfast and join the conversation, always ready to offer suggestions and share from their own experiences in the beautiful village of Ajijic and Mexico in general. They truly embrace the Latin American greeting "Estas en tu casa" (Make yourself at home). Our room was spacious, tastefully appointed, and brimming over with colorful tile and other artistic touches. The garden and pool are private, lush, and breathtaking. The staff are gracious and the breakfasts are delicious.

You won't want to leave this place. We had such a wonderful stay. Los Artistas is beautiful and the fantastic owners, Kent and Linda made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were great with a wide variety of offerings. We loved the Huevos Rancheros. Our room was spacious, clean and decorated beautufuly with Mexican pieces. The gardens, fountains and pool are gorgeous. They were hard to leave in the morning when it was time to go into Ajijic and explore. We highly recommend Los Artistas B&B and can't wait to go back

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at Los Artistas.

Great Breakfast, great owners and staff, tranquil, beautiful gardens..spotlessly clean.

Delicious, varied breakfasts. Unhesitatingly recommend to anyone seeking to stay in Ajijic. Close to town square, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be pleasant.

  • Liked — beautiful setting
  • Disliked — cobblestone streets outside the B&B (but the whole town is cobblestoned!)

We just returned from a trip last week [3/10/06] from Ajijic and while there we stayed at the Los Artistas B & B. Our room was the Grand Room and it is even nicer than the picture on the web site. Each morning we had a nice breakfast to start our day and then took our time deciding what we were going to do for the day. The grounds that the B & B sit on are the most relaxing place I've ever stayed at with many species of trees, plants, beautiful flowers, birds and butterflies. There was a nice pool [although it was a bit cool when first getting in] all the grounds are enclosed by a wall which insured total privacy. All that has been written about Ajijic being a layed back, beautiful place to visit is true. We felt safe while walking the streets at all times of the day and night and the Mexican people are so friendly always looking you in the eye with a happy greeting as you pass. While there we made several new friends at the breakfast table, around the pool, and dinning togather in the evening at many of Ajijic's fine resturants. I'm sure we will stay in touch with them and see some of them again. Kent and Linda have a beautiful place that I can't wait to visit again.
