This 24 room hotel is one of the largest in the town of Tapalpa. Although one of the trip advisor key words for this hotel is "Pacific Coast" it is at least three hours inland. it is about two and a half hours southwest of Guadalajara. The hotel is in a quiet (for Mexico!) neighborhood about 6 blocks from the main plaza. I put the term quiet in parentheses because on any residential street in these small towns you may have to deal with booming car radios and barking dogs.
The hotel was made of all natural materials - lots of wood, brick and stone. The toiletries are handmade. The rooms are cheerful and there is free internet access in each room. No TVs or phones in the rooms, nor are there hair dryers. Towels were basic white. Beds were typically Mexican, i.e. hard. Plenty of hot water.
The hotel can be virtually empty during weekdays. We stayed on a Sunday and Monday night when the room rates are 30% lower than the busy weekends. We were the only ones there on Monday night. If you are there on a weekend, they serve a full breakfast buffet (included in price). On weekdays, they have a wide selection of cook to order AND a smaller buffet with coffee cake,juice fruit, and granola included. Like most other hotels and homes in Mexico, there is no central heat. It can be quite cool in the evening and early morning (even in April when we were there). They give you plenty of blankets and there is a fireplace in each of the rooms. Plenty of street parking available. They also have bicycles to loan (rent?) on site. There is a wide variety of rooms - one of the rooms that I peeked at (the Suite) had beds for 6 people - a king, two twins and two trundle beds. It also had a round dining table for 6 in the room. Those rooms are about double of a standard room.
It is a two story hotel, with only stairs to the second floor. Lots of charming Mexican decorations. They work with a tour company, which we used, called Colores de Tapalpa. You can get special rates, private guide of the area with van transport. We live about two hours away in Chapala and there was pick up and delivery door-to-door in their van with a bilingual guide. We would definitely stay here again.
