“Winter vacation”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

We spent two weeks at Los Artistas in February to do some house hunting and get to know the town. The location is ideal, just a block from the outdoor market and close to community highlights. Our room was wonderful and private at the back of a beautify garden beyond the pool. the staff was friendly and accommodating and the food was very good. This B&B is a great value.

Room Tip: Book well in advance and take advantage of their driver to get from the airport.

Los Artistas B&B features its own outstanding lush botanical garden, surprisingly revealed only after walking through the main house (lobby & dining room area). There is an inviting and pleasant lounging area for quiet relaxation around a small wading pool. We met a couple who have returned to this property for 7 consecutive years. And, this place doesn't even have a loyalty program! ;o) Breakfasts are excellent, the staff is very accomodating. A car service, arranged by the B&B to and from the airport is reliable and resonable. The B&B is undergoing some infrastructure improvements, and should be even better when we return. Room rates may be slightly above competition, but you may pay in USD. BTW, Ajijic is a mostly "Cash" village, so head to the nearby HSBC ATM to get plenty of Pesos, using your debit card as soon as you arrive.

Room Tip: There is no fitness center that we could find.

Los Artistas B & B was a great place to spend the weekend. The breakfast is outstanfing, the grounds are beautiful. The owners arranged for us to be picked up in Guadalajara which made our transit much simpler. Will definitely stay there again.

To start with, I want to point out that as a firefighter/emt for a municipality, I appreciate a good cup of coffee. The coffee served each morning at Los Artistas B&B, is hands down, the absolute best coffee I have ever had. It is those very unexpected surprises that are the best.

The Host's recommended transportation provided by "Franciso's family business" was top notch, and made the trip from the airport easy and pleasant.

Once at the Los Artistas, the surreal perfection of the grounds and artistry of the garden are striking. Everything is high quality, clean, yet inviting. Lots of cool hangout spots to read, relax, or visit with other guests if you want.

Although security is not a real concern, the old masonry walls surrounding the Los Artistas gives it a paradise in a fortress like, setting. This also makes it a very quiet area, while relaxing in the garden court yard.

There are lots of brightly colored indigenous birds which are curious and easy to view.

The room I had was clean, with excellent air flow, and a good selection of lighting for evening reading. The complementary internet functioned well, and was able to easily stream video, as well as flight booking, banking, and email.

The cobblestone streets provide a great pathway to several really good restaurants, all within walking distance. Also, a laundry business, drug store, a grocery store, and reliable ATM, are just two small blocks up the adjacent street.

There is cold and delicious potable water to drink, in unlimited amounts. I choose to rehydrate using beer in the afternoons, but the water was a great alternative.

I recommend staying at Los Artistas, and intend to stay there again upon my return. I really miss that coffee.

Room Tip: Garden room is a bonus; near the pool.

Los Artistas is the most charming, serene and beautiful B&B we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The rooms are found away from the main house in romantic, private parts of the garden on this beautiful property; they are immaculate and have themed mexican decor (ours was the Mango Room). The bed was very comfortable the linens were of high quality.

When you walk into the gardens, you feel as though you have walked into paradise; it takes your breath away. We sat in the garden, by the pool and listened to the birds and the fountains, it was so calming.

Kent and Linda were excellent hosts and they made us feel very much at home. The hospitality shown by all of the staff was top notch, they are all kind and accommodating and the attention to detail was amazing. Sorocco made the most delicious specialty breakfast for us every morning that was accompanied by the usual breakfast fare of cereal, yogurt, toast and wonderful local fresh fruit probably picked from their very own garden.

The rates are very reasonable especially when considering the gourmet breakfast and the top quality service at this lovely B&B.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Mango Room" which had a kingsize bed, and was charmingly decorated. The...

We were totally enchanted by Los Artistas’ ambience, especially upon our waking up to the lovely gardens complete with bubbling fountain and the sweetness of birdsong. We felt peaceful and secure in this romantic hideaway. Sitting at our breakfast table and making fine conversation with our new friends, we looked out and saw the stately mountains that also seemed to be welcoming us to this little spot of serenity. Our dog, too, felt loved.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely.

I stayed here for christmas and new years with my mom this year. Not only are the grounds beautiful, but the owners and everyone who works there are extremely welcoming and friendly. The location is great and you can walk to everything you need! I had a great trip and hope to go back someday soon :)
