“Pure Tranquility!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

On Mid-March my husband and I met family for a family wedding in Guadalajara; all with different arriving days and times. Arriving first on early hours of the morning, we checked-in, rested and rejuvenated at La Villa del Ensueño! We woke up in pure tranquility and enjoyed a traditional Mexican breakfast. The boutique hotel embarks a separate property across the street where we stayed and enjoyed the sun by the pool after our feast. The hotel is full of bright colors, with lots of charm. Staff is completely devoted to your stay and complete satisfaction. We loved it!

My wife, son and I stayed here in April. It is a charming hotel with a nice personality. The hotel has two buildings, across the street from each other. We preferred being on the "breakfast" side as it was likely a bit quieter at night. Both sides have pleasant courtyards and each room is a bit different. Ours was spacious and well-appointed for the price, but had no windows. For a party of three, we needed the extra room (there was a sitting room as well as a bedroom). But if you are traveling alone or as a couple, make sure to ask for a room with a window.

Room Tip: The quieter side is likely the building across the street from check-in. Ask to be on that side if y...

From Jade's smiling and aimiable greeting to Antonio's pre-dawn send-off two days later we thoroughly enjoyed our comfortable stay in "La Villa". The rooms were commodious, beds comfortable, bathrooms clean and supplied with shampoos and the like. Breakfasts were ample and delicious, specially prepared (loved the "huevos a la mexicana") and served with the best coffee we tasted in 8 weeks spent in Jalisco. We were completely charmed by all staff we spoke to and felt spoiled. In Spanish one says "como se debe", in French, "comme il faut". I suppose in English that means everything was "just so".

Room Tip: We looked at the tips on this site and decided to just take what was supplied. We had Room 7 at the...

We just spent one night at Villa del Encanto while en route for Zacatecas. We had a charming junior suite, enjoyed an excellent breakfast and the company of Amel in the bar who served us a welcome drink when we arrived. Only negatives were that pools were not heated or in use and the Internet did not function in our room. Would go back for sure as Tlaquepaque is an interesting small community to visit - we really enjoyed the ceramic museum and Guadalajara is a central point from which to get buses all over Mexico.

An absolutely wonderful stay in the best location in Guadalajara, a short walk from the centre of the cultural area, el Parian. This hotel definitely one of the best in Mexico and a fantanstic value for money.

Room Tip: Junior suites are phenomenal!!!!

If you get there at night, you may not be familiar with the narrow streets and the older buildings - but rest easy! You will not regret the booking. The rooms are very unique and feel free to see a couple before you choose. All the staff were very accommodating and very friendly. After a couple of days exploring you will find the neighborhood is very safe and the locals are very nice. The main square of Tlaquepaque is only a short walk away and the shops and restaraunts are great. We walked back and forth day or night and never felt unsafe. Two days into our trip my husband got very sick with a chest infection (that he brought from Canada). The manager (I wish I could spell his name) offered to take him to the hospital to see a doctor, waited with him, translated and then filled his prescriptions. Incredible- I am so thankful for him! The hotel's on-call cab driver, Quan, took me to the grocery store to stock "flu" neccessities, stayed with me to shop and translate and then took me home. Even though the hotel only serves breakfast, the waiter Emile heated up the soup and served in a nice warm bowl. Emile speaks very good English and is a great source to talk to about the customs and the area. And, the free breakfast they serve is by order, fresh and very good. Every morning stopping to talk and joke with the front desk staff was a memorable part of our trip. We highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Check out what they have available. There are many options to suit your taste.

I like to visit tlaquepaque at least once a year and usually stay in Guadalajara. This time I read the reviews on trip advisor and made a 5 night reservation at "villas del ensueno" with with family. We were pleasantly surprised. Rooms were very spacious, bathroom expansive and decor very traditional. All rooms have a patio/balcony. Pool was cold and so was jacuzzi. The hotel is well located lots of shops, restaurants and taxi availability at very reasonable rates. Breakfast options traditional and offered a great start for the day. Personnel all went out of there way to be helpful. In all a good experience and would stay again. Beds were okay, not great but clean and improved as we stayed on. Recommended for large groups and family. Very nice and enjoyed the location. Not far from airport or downtown area. Price was very reasonable for service.

Room Tip: Away from front desk . Back area over pool.
