I really liked this hotel. I've read a lot of reviews about how this is not a 4 or 5 star hotel that they claim to be. But bear in mind, this is Mexico we're talking about. Me and my colleagues stayed at this hotel for eight nights and attended to a conference that was held at the venue and we really liked it. The service was very friendly and helpful, even though not all staff member spoke English. At the reception they did, how ever.
The place where the hotel is located is very beautiful and peaceful. The town of Ajijic is within walking distance from the hotel (app. 10min.) and from there you can take a bus for example to Guadalajara. Buses are really comfortable and cheap, only 53 pesos from Ajijic to Guadalajara.
There were only a few drawbacks with the rooms. As mentioned here earlier, the rooms do not come with A/C, only with a fan. We, however, stayed at Real de Chapala in March so if you kept your windows open for a few hours after sunset the temperature was not too hot. The other drawback is the sound proof, or lack of it. You could hear all the noices from the hallway, no matter how quietly people tried to talk. And unfortunately they did not try to keep their voices down.
But all in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the area. The restaurant was excellent also, great food with great prices!
