One of the most relaxing hotels I have visited. Hard to describe the wonderful other era feel. Each room is named, we stayed in the "opera room" with a balcony overlooking Lake Chapala. The beds are out of this world comfy and I think they have a fireplace in every room which they will light if you happen to be... More

We stayed in the Alma Latina room because we needed 2 beds (3 of us). I believe all the other rooms only had 1... More

Arrived mid week to Guadalajara and used their shuttle service to and from the airport. Manager was there on time and the entire staff was outstanding and very helpful since the moment I arrived.

Very friendly staff, clean and safe place to stay! The manager went out of his way to take us on a tour of Tequila. Lots of good memories there. The town is very nice, though surprisingly they didnt have many good margaritas :)

I would recommend this hotel 95% it is located in a very nice area. It is clean, safe, comfortable hotel. However, rooms are small for the price charged, they are called luxurious; i guess by their standards.

We loved this recent (3 yrs) renovation from a Lakeside mansion into an exceptional hotel...beautiful grounds...lovely, extremely comfortable rooms, all different...a extremely helpful and efficient staff that bent over backwards to accomodate and anticipate our every wish. Convenient to restaurants and shops. Not to be missed.
