“Great place for a quiet family vacation”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Lovely place. The owner really made us feel at home... we wished it was our home. We loved the garden, the hammocks and the ample living room. There's a lot of original artwork all over the place. Everything is clean and tidy. One of the two bedrooms we occupied was particularly pretty and well illuminated, but both are nicely decorated and have a nice view of the garden. We were sorry we had to leave so soon. If anything, I would change the dog situation. "Plato" is friendly and quiet, but not everyone welcomes a dog too close to the breakfast table.

We were driving and had SatNav, but it still took a few phone calls to the owner before we were able to locate this B&B in a back-road far from the city center. I like animals a lot, but their dog was horribly smelly to the extent that I don't think he was properly looked after and, on the first night we stayed there, he was locked out of the house and took to barking the entire night very close to our room.
Even without these negative points, the place is vastly over-priced. We booked because of the great reviews the place got on this site, and had to pay the entire fee upfront through PayPal (including the 4% service charge that PayPal charge), and this way entirely non-refundable weeks before our stay.
All in all, an over-priced and not nice place to stay.

My girlfriend and I made a reservation through the Las Golondrinas website. We paid in full (via PayPal) and received an automatic confirmation of our payment from the owner and PayPal. Once our taxi had finally found the place, we waited around outside for ten minutes for someone to let us in. After settling into our room, we were told that there had been a double booking and we would have to give up the room. We were offered a doorless dilapidated room next to the kitchen instead. When we finally got through to the owner to complain, she was rude and obnoxious, claiming that we were supposed to call to make reservations (even though her website has a function to take online bookings). We are still waiting for our refund.

As for the guesthouse itself, it certainly didn't seem worth the money. From the little time we spent in the hotel I noticed that the sheets seemed old, the room smelt musty and the pool was covered in a film of scum. It had the feel of a place that was once loved but had been neglected by a careless owner. The only good thing I could say about this place is that the maid was very helpful and apologetic for a situation that clearly wasn't her fault.

With plenty of other amazing places to stay in Tepotzlan for the same price, or less, I certainly won't ever be going back. I implore the owner to please sort out the website so that this doesn't happen again. it isn't difficult to set up a functioning website. Oh, and a refund would be nice too.

We stayed at Las Golondrinas for three nights on a recent trip. This B & B is in a private house with lovely flower filled grounds and a pretty little pool. It is a very relaxing setting and we enjoyed sitting on the comfortable chairs by the pool in the late afternoon. It is a ways outside of town down an unpaved road, but it is worth the trip.
There are only three rooms and when we stayed there we were the only guests. If the other two rooms had been filled there might have been a problem with use of the facilities. Besides the yard, there is a comfortable living room area for the use of the guests.
The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfasts are fabulous. Marisol Fernandez, the owner, is a lovely lady and is a very gracious hostess. I would highly recommend this place for those who want to escape town, which can be a bit noisy.
