“A pleasant getaway”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

My husband and I stayed at a deluxe room in this hotel for 2 days and one night as part to a larger trip to Guadalajara. In a way, we knew what to expect after reading the reviews given to this boutique hotel in Tripadvisor. However, it is great to be able to confirm that the hotel is a tastefully decorated hacienda-style of house, very comfortable, and quiet. There are nice patios and green areas to relax the eyes. If you happen to visit, we fully recommend having a tamarindo-flavoured margarita in the patio outside the bar area and enjoy the most beautiful songs by a small enthusiastic canary. The staff made every effort to make our stay memorable, were polite and very helpful. In fact, we were switched to different room because we asked to have our airconditioner checked (it was making noise). The bed was comfortable and the airconditioner made a difference when the temperature outside was over 28 degrees celsius at night. We tried the food at Tlaquepasta, it was good but we did not find it particularly memorable. The only negative comment is that the swimming pool was freezing cold. After having walked around in Tlaquepaque we were looking for a refreshing splash and were extremely disappointed even if we are not usually shy of cold water! We'll be back with our children on a different visit.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms are very comfortable

Quinta DonJose Boutique Hotel is a little bit of heaven in Tlaquepaque! The hotel is beautiful with a lovely garden and patio. From the time you enter your room you are welcomed by a personal note saying how much the staff appreciates your visit. You are provided with the finest towels and linens plus purified water.
I highly recommend the hotel to everyone who will be visiting Guadalajara!

What a great "home". The staff are exceptionally helpful, the hotel is very "mexican", clean, safe and spacious. A lovely fruit/bread breakfast is included but you can also order off a menu. The bartenders mix delicious drinks, the maintenance staff are eager to please and no request is too small. The reception desk staff made munerous phone calls for me to make reservations or determine the hours of operation of several sites outside the area. They never hovered over us so so sense that they were trying to hurry us. There was a musician who played the harp for about 1/2 hour at dinner time - very soothing yet up-beat music. All in all, it was an excellent experience and we would definitely return!!

Room Tip: The rooms not on the poolside tend to be a bit quieter and private.

We recently spent 10 days in TLAQUEPAQUE (Quadalajara).
The choice of QDJ was based on Trip Advisor reviews and Travel Guides.
An unexpected bonus was the opportunity to meet a number ofl "ex pats" and
business travelers who come to the Hotel.
They took us under their wings and in some cases into their homes.
This with the various local tourist attractions kept us very well entertained.

A bit of advice. We had reserved a Rental Car for the 10 days.
At the end of day 2 we returned it.
1. Proper rental Insurance and a modest car in Mexico exceed $100 a day.
Everything else on our trip was a "bargain" .
2. The biggest bargain was Taxi fare. (15 to 20 mile trips for $10.)
3. There is no place to park in greater Quadalajara.

Hope this has been of help.

Say Hi to Art, Sal, Charlie and the rest of the staff, who were uniiformly pleasant.

We stayed at Don Jose the last 2 nights after 2 months in Ajijic Mexico. It was a great finish to our away time. When we arrived the road outside the hotel was under construction and our driver was parked a couple of blocks away. We were also a little apprehensive as the hotel is literally a door in a wall. However once you go through the door there is a tremendous hotel with beautiful grounds including a pool and poolside bar inside. The reception staff immediately sent an employee to go with our driver and give him directions to get to our unit (we had one of the off site villas which was amazing) The staff was extremely helpful and when we had a problem with the WIFI they were there immediately and kept bringing more people until they had it fixed. We ate in the restaurant our second night and wished we had eaten there both nights. The service, food and entertainment was exceptional and very reasonably priced. We are returning to Mexico next year and will definitely include Don Jose in our stay at some point.
