I stayed for a week in this lovely Hotel Boutique in Colima in January 2013. Everything about it is absolutely charming. From the courtyard that has lemon and orange trees and a lot of sunshine, the lovely backyard and the wonderful colors and design of the hotel, it`s really a relaxing and nice place to stay. The rooms are all beautiful (the owner was kind enough to show me around) and you can see that all pieces of furniture were carefully hand picked, to the huge and comfortable beds with egyptian cotton linen, to the huge bronze sinks, beautiful paintings by local artists and all the other furniture in the rooms.
The owner and his wife were so friendly and attentionate! They showed me pictures of all the renovations they did to the hotel after buying this old house of a Governator (hence the name). Its really amazing all they did and how they give friendly and personal service to their guest. We chatted every day and you can see that they like to treat their guests in the best possible manner. They can even organize weddings, baptisms or other events in their courtyard!
Finally, I ate at the hotel quite a few times as the food was delicious. Their tartare is out of this world, everything is very fresh, the margaritas are actually made from the oranges that grow in the tree in the courtyard and if you like whisky, the owner is quite a fan so I enjoyed many late night whisky tasting with him! Great times!
Honestly, I`ve never given an excellent rating in all aspects of a review, but this Hotel Boutique deserves it!
