“It's True! Great Place to Stay.”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

Truly, there is nothing more to be said. The accommodations are well furnished with great gardens and fabulous hosts. We stayed in the Mariposa Room - overlooking both the street and the backyard gardens. We found this room to be both quiet and luxurious. Breakfast was as much or as little as you wanted. Good food! Great Hospitality! If you've done much travelling throughout Mexico, you'll appreciate the comfortable bed and a decent shower head with good water pressure.

This was the first time that we had ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast and was leary but after meeting Eleanor and Rick there was nothing to worry about except they may have spoiled us for other Bed and Breakfast places.
The house and Casita are beautiful as are the gardens and pool. We would recomend staying there to anyone who wants a nice quiet comfortable vacation in the center of Ajijic.

One of the best things about our vacation in Ajijic was our two week stay at Quinta del Sol. This B and B's architecture has character and the great hosts, Eleanor and Rick, maintain a good lodging and a beautiful garden. We stayed 10 days in the Mariposa room and then 4 in the Casita. Both are petty, spacious and have great beds. We preferred the Mariposa because of it's balcony with a fabulous view of the back yard garden, nice pool and distant mountains. Sitting there with all the singing birds was wonderful. It was a pleasure to chat with Eleanor each morning at a "prepared just for us" breakfast. Eleanor truly did make our stay memorable with all the little extras she provided - ride to meet friends, early coffee before breakfast, dishes for our dinner, answering loads of questions.....to name a few. We had fun and would certainly return.

Room Tip: The Mariposa room has a large balcony overlooking the pool, beautiful garden and mountains. It is a...

There is no question that Eleanor and Rick Feeney, proprietors of Quinta del Sol, deserve an excellent rating. They are well known in Ajijic, and I was referred to them by local residents. The property is highly aesthetic, comfortable, easy to access from downtown (especially after some late nights of dancing), a short walk from the picturesque lake across the street and near shopping. Eleanor is a foodie; in addition to bacon, eggs, pancakes, her home baked pastries and breads, I savored delectable fruits and smoothies. My room, the casita, was a gift. There was a beautiful view of the property from the window inside the room, as well as on the stone porch, overlooking the pool.There are 2 more rooms across the patio in the upper level of the home. The setting was never crowded, and noise I found most endearing was the rooster's holler. The top-off to my stay were the owners' friendliness, greetings, conversations, help with getting around town, scheduling taxis, mapping directions, and as in the previous review, a personal walk to the destination in question. After a long vacation day which then turned into a night on the town, I walked home to my casita at Quinta del Sol and found a taste of Tequila. Fabulous. Don't miss it, and hurry, they are often sold out. I expect to book my next visit within the year, shortly.

Eleanor & Rick were the best hosts one could ask for. They were quick to assist with things to do, internet connection issues, restaurant suggestions, arranged for my taxi service, etc., etc. Breakfast was served early every morning so that I could make it to my conference in time. Eleanor even walked me to my conference location the first day so I would find my way! Rick was so kind to take me and my suitcase to the conference location on the last day so I didn't have to haul it down the cobblestone streets. The facility is wonderful with three rooms to choose from; two inside the home and one casita, but it is the hosts that really make it an experience to remember. My room was quiet large and I enjoyed opening the windows and doors each day to listen to the birds, horse hooves clomping, and even the rooster crowing. I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: There are two rooms upstairs that look out over the street which is interesting for those who like t...

We visited Quinta Del Sol back in February for a week and being that this was our third visit to this B & B should tell you everything you need to know. We love it !! However our first night we stayed in another B & B because Quinta Del Sol had been booked up for the first night of our vacation. Now having another B & B to compare we are very very happy we chose Quinta Del Sol.
We booked the casita for this trip and since our last stay here the owners have done some renovations to the bathroom which is now huge , the shower is so big, just amazing. We also had our own table and chairs right outside our sliding door where we often sat in the evening .
Eleanor makes the most delicious and filling breakfasts we have ever eaten. Pancakes , home made butter tarts & muffins , bacon & eggs , fresh fruit the lists were endless. We have never stayed at any B & B ever that has offered so many choices. Gracias Eleanor !
We love Ajijic and for us when visiting there is no other place we would stay . The rooms are fantastic , spacious , clean and the beds are just as comfortable as our bed at home. The grounds are breath taking with a heated pool which is always nice to get into after walking around the town. We even met a new friend at the B & B on this visit , Dolly a beautiful and friendly dog who belongs to Eleanor and Rick .
The owners of this B & B are quite knowledgable of Ajijic and the surrounding area and we felt very comfortable to ask for directions and suggestions for restaurants and sight seeing. We hope to return to Quinta del Sol on our next trip to Ajijic as it just makes our vacation that much more special.

In February we returned to the Quinta del Sol for the second time. Once again we found the accommodation, the garden, the location and the warm hospitality of Eleanor a real treat. Over several decades we have stayed in many B & B's in Ajijic and the Quinta is now definitely our enduring choice. We just hope we are able to enjoy it for many future visits. The Quinta's recognition by Tripadvisor as one of the 20 top B & B's in Mexico could not be more merited.
