“Wonderful spot for your Dreams”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We stayed for three nights in Villa del Ensueno in March 2012, and I can't believe that I forgot to write a review until now.

I am still thinking about this beautiful B&B, partly because I am still remembering their wonderful, made to order breakfasts, that were so completely yummy and included free with your stay.

This hotel is so gorgeous, you have to see it in person to appreciate it. The pool is nice and was totally refreshing after a hot day of sightseeing. Beds were comfortable, our room was very large. Shower had lots of hot water. It was quiet. We had our own private courtyard for sitting in. Staff were courteous, welcoming and always available.

I would definitely stay here again and hope I have the chance to do so.

In short, this place was superb. In June 2012, the hotel was almost empty (without any good reason that we could see apart from the impending rainy season), gave superb service and excellent acommodation and made us feel as welcome as a hotel possibly could.

We stayed for five nights in mid-June. Our room (8) was quiet and clean with an excellent, firm matress and plenty of room to spread out and make it our home for almost a week.

The only small complaints I have are about a filter problem with one of the pools (there are two pools and the problem was remedied while we were there) and that one of the windows in our room could've used a decent scrub. But that's being VERY picky.

On the up-side: on a rainly night, the staff secured us a much-needed bottle of wine (which ended up being free of charge!), washed our clothes for free and offered us an umbrella aginst the early wet-season rain. Breakfast was included and was excelllent and served with a smile.

The hotel itself is actually quite big. It traverses Calle Florida which is just north of where the action is in Tlaquepaque though it takes all of five minutes to walk to the heart of town. The benefit is that you get a nice, quite place to chill-out but only have a short walk to the centre. (Don't miss Dona Mago for any meal you might be in need of - great.)

Honestly, quite a hard place to fault.

Room Tip: Possibly away from the pool(s) and street if you want the quiestest option.

We had an enchanting time at this wonderful place. We stayed there twice, both coming and going from Puerto Vallarta to San Miguel de Allende. The place is lovely, the service was incredible, and the pools and architecture beautiful. The welcome drinks and breakfast were incredible as well. We will definitely go back. It was low season and we were just about the only people there and we felt like we had our own villa, nice!

Room Tip: Check around on line, you can get great online deals for this place.

We loved this boutique hotel! We went there on a business/pleasure trip and couldn't have found a more quaint place to stay. It is a little off the beat and path but didn't mind walking a few extra blocks...helped us work off all the yummy food we ate. They include a nice little breakfast that was a perfect way to start our day. The room was exceptionally large with a sitting room we didn't even use. The bathroom had beautiful Mexican time throughout. We stayed across the street in a separate building that remains locked at all times so we felt very secure. The color of the buildings interior was Mexican inspired and we felt as though we were in a little oasis...the tropical plants are so pretty. The have a nice little pool that we saw several people enjoying. The management was very helpful and even arranged a private taxi to take us all around...he knew all the hidden shopping spots to go and was very reasonable. I don't suggest renting a car as the parking is very difficult and it is very easy to get lost...let someone take care of that for you. Great place for the price...don't think you can beat it!!

I'm from Europe, Belgium! For people travelling to Guadalaraja, I really recommend not only a visit, but a stay in Tlaquepaque for 2 or 3 days! From the centre or the airport of Guadalaraja, Tlaquepaque and Villa del Ensueno is just a 15 or 20 minute taxi drive. At Easter, I stayed for the 2nd time in Tlaquepaque, Villa del Ensueno! The rooms are so nice, so brightly decorated in a truly Mexican style, with "azulejos" in the bathroom. Free WIFI. Two nice swimming pool, but a bit cold. The hotel should cover them for the night. Breakfast is good ... especially the coffee in a nice ceramic cup! The hotel management is constantly improving the facilities of the hotel, soon offering a restaurant. Now, el Liverpool has opened and is close to the hotel. The centre is easy to reach, 5 min walk. So many nice places to eat, so many arts shops, .... not handicraft, but ART ... and I recommend to visit the Ceramic centre dowtown, and of course Rodo Padilla ceramica! The young lady at the reception is really helpful. If you need a taxi, just ask reception and they will call you one. Reliable. Parking for your car. Some rooms have a terrasse with sun umbrella and chairs. My husband and I like the room just above reception, with bath! The street where the hotel is located is a bit weird ... but don't pay attention to it, Villa del Ensueno is really worth a visit, a stay! Good value for money!

My wife & I stayed here with our two boys (4 & 15) the night of 4/7 before we drove to Puerto Vallarta. We stayed in room 3 which I'm assuming is in the original building. We enjoyed it so much we stayed again on 4/14 before our flight out. The second night they gave us a jr suite (room 21). I'm assuming that was partly due to the wedding reception they were hosting. Other than being difficult to find (not many street signs in Tlaquepaque) I couldn't have been more pleased. The chilaquile's rojo was the best I've ever had and I've had many. Our boys enjoyed the pool and the management was very helpful with our many questions. The breakfast alone makes this hotel a slam dunk. Throw in the atmosphere with spanish tile, safe parking, and a lovely room and you won't regret staying here. It's about a 10 minute walk to the center of town. The shops there had much better bargains than even the small towns around PV. Do your shopping here. They said the wedding was between a French and Mexican bride/groom that researched and booked them on the internet without ever seeing it in advance. I'm not sure I trust reviewers like me quite that much.

Room Tip: Book the building across the street if you like to sleep in. It's a bit noisier near the check i...

We checked rprevious reviews on Trip Advisor before we made reservations and took the advice of one review to ask for the New Building, and a deluxe room. When we arrived we were told all 3 of the deluxe suites were taken. We were also put in the old building and were told it had been remodeled therefore they considered it the new building. The old builing is 15 years old and the new building 8 years old. We insisted on seeing the new building but they would not show us any rooms. We asked how full they were and we were told 50%. We were never offered a welcome cocktail as advertised, and had to ask for it! The pools were not heated, another falsehood. We were with another couple and were suppose to stay 3 days but checked out after the first. The rooms were ok and the breakfast was nice. We looked into the other rooms in the new building at 9:00am and they were all empty, there was also no one else at breakfast. The next day we found a lovely place in Tlaquepaque for the same price. It was quiet and beautiful, 2 blocks from shopping. Hotel Quinta Don Jose B&B. The owners are gracious, the restaurant and bar was lovely. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Insist on New building not old remodeled one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
