Friendly staff. Character property. Rooms are dated. A little expensive for what you get but the view of the lake is pretty.

Loved the view of the lake. Lovely pool. Grounds are lovely. Ample parking. Large lovely room. Pool table in the beautiful lobby. Bed a bit hard. Shower had lots of hot water but nozzle needed adjusting. No cell phone plug ins near the beds. Didn’t eat at restaurant. Restaurant seemed a bit pricey but looked nice. Pool was right under our window and was noisy at times with screaming little kids. It was a weekend. Would be quiet through the week. Generally a quiet hotel.

The staff were very friendly and supportive and the location was excellent. It is right beside the lake and a short walk to a nice shopping Center and downtown area. The pools are terrific and as added features are a soccer pitch/tennis courts and pool tables to entertain yourself. Good place to stay for a visit to the incredible village of Ajijic.
