Casa del Sol
Ranked #15 of 27 Ajijic B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We stayed at this lovely B&B from Feb 16th to Feb 22nd 2014. We were with 5 friends who stayed there from Feb 12th to 23rd. My mom lives in the area so we stayed with her for the rest of the time. What a treat it was to stay at Casa Del Sol. Cathy the owner and operator has carved out a small paradise in the beautiful town of Ajijic.

This B&B is clean and beautiful. Each room is totally different and they all have their own bathrooms. There is a lovely pool and patio and 2 roof top patios. Breakfast is included and it was absolutely wonderful. Made to order and hot. The Mexican staff who work at the B&B lacked English but certainly made up with it with their smiles, laughter and hard work. We felt totally safe! There is a safe available to put you valuables but we never felt we needed to use it. The place is often locked and security wise you felt safe.

Would I go back? ABSOLUTLEY!!! Would we recommend it to others? ABSOLUTLEY!

I wish I was there now enjoying the hospitality of Casa Del Sol

Thank you to Cathy for providing this lovely place and thanks to Linden our breakfast cook and thank you to the rest of the staff who made our visit so wonderful.

We love Ajijic and can see living there for months at a time when we are retired. We would recommend this lovely B&B to family and friends who come to visit us!

We stayed here in December 2012 with our 1.5 year old daughter. It is a lovely place. The breakfast is delicious. Our room (we had an upstairs room) was spacious, with plenty of space to hang out just outside the room so our daughter could sleep and we could stay up and hang out. Ajijic is definitely not a kid-friendly town (well, compared to the rest of Mexico), and yet the owner was accommodating to the whirlwind that is a toddler. The pool is open year round, but it was cold in December. You can't go wrong staying here!

It was our honeymoon y loved having a masseuse in our room twice. Cathy gave us a few recommendations y we took advantage of a few. LOVED IT. We walked everywhere except for day trips to hot water pools. We went there twice just to relax. That was the rainy season y Mosquitos were bad especially at Casa del Sol. The food there was incredible y her main girl was awesome!! We can't wait to return!

My friend Pauline and I recently stayed in this marvelous inn in this lovely town. Casa del Sol is the ideal place to spend time and savor all the wonderful things this lovely village in the mountains and near Lake Chapala has to offer. Our host Kathy Roberts could not be more charming and hospitable, and always ready to provide her guests with her vast knowledge of the area. The inn is very well appointed with a great pool and located just about in the center of the village. The rooms are spacious and charming with a touch of real Mexico. The breakfasts are superior with fresh fruit and fresh orange juice very day. And Kathy serves coffee from Oaxaca, the best in Mexico. We had a restful and enjoyable stay and are definitely returning this summer. Ajiijic is a very special place.

What a wonderful stay! Gracious hostess Cathy, was wonderful helping with all of our questions and gave us wonderful tips while staying there. The breakfasts were wonderful, the rooms are so cute, but the beds made staying away from home bearable! Thank you Cathy for that added detail!
The lacation is fantastic, just a block or so from the Ajijic Plaza, but on a quiet street. Also really close to the melecon so we could walk along the lake every morning. We will be back!

Everyone at Casa del Sol made me feel very welcome. Cathy, the owner was extremely helpful in my search for retirement options.

I had some of the best pancakes I've ever eaten, with real maple syrup!

The Wi-Fi didn't quite reach my room, but it wasn't a very big problem. It was strong in the lobby.

I would go back in a heartbeat.

We recently visited Ajijic for a day and had the pleasure of spending a night at Casa Del Sol bed and breakfast. The owner Catherine Roberts was very hospitable and made us feel very welcome to be there. I wished we could have spent a few more days at this wonderful place.
