Quinta Don Jose Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in Tlaquepaque
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2009

I am finally getting around to writing this long overdue review. My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 10 nights on our honeymoon last May. We stayed in the Master suite and it was absolutely beautiful with a hammock, jacuzzi tub, fireplace... It was also very reasonable priced! It is a very relaxing hotel and the gardens are absolutely beautiful. There was nothing like walking out of your room into the gardens listening to the relaxing music and the sound of the birds.

What really makes this hotel stand out is the homely feel and the outstanding staff- we had fantastic evenings in the hotel at the restaurant and in the bar afterwards with Heime and Herman the waiters and Charlie the barman. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. We would have our dinner in the dining area and then bring our dessert to the bar area- where my husband loved watching the football on the old tv and having some banter with the staff about the football. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I am vegetarian and found the creamy pasta that was on the menu too heavy in the heat. I mentioned this and the chef made me a special dish instead.

The only quibble I can think of is that the pool was a bit cold and you got a bit of a shock when you got into the water first. However, it was so hot when we were there that it was also kindof refreshing.

All in all, I really cannot recommend this hotel enough and hope that we have an opportunity in the future to return again. We went to a posh resort in Puerto Vallarta after our stay in the Quinta and it just didnt compare- we wished we had spent our whole time in the Quinta!! Thank you to the Quinta Don Jose for giving us such a memorable honeymoon.

We enjoyed the Quinta Don Jose hotel for two nights. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms pretty good value for the money. I would go back. Mike from Austin

The family/staff at Quinta Don Jose is top notch and the location is great. If you are going to GDL for business or pleasure, don't waste your time on a "canned" hotel. QDJ is comfortable and located very near the Tlaquepaque Plaza where you can walk freely and enjoy Mexico without feeling like a tourist! Once you are back at QDJ, you walk into your own little paradise, away from the hustle and bustle. The staff is always very accomodating--Sherrie from PA

We stayed at the Quinta Don Jose Boutique Hotel for five nights. It was wonderful.
The staff were friendly and most spoke English. The owners are charming Californians with two young daughters.
The room was nice, the grounds were gorgeous and everything was squeaky clean.
The Don Jose's dinners are terrific and they are modestly priced. That is a great combination - excellent and affordable.

beautiful grounds, the best staff with english. we stayed in the 2 bedroom villa. it is beyond a perfect spot to stay in 1 block off the square. the villa was upscale compared to any places i have stayed in gdl area. the garden area is perfectly and beautifully maintained. a wonderful place to stay with or without family. the taco stand on the corner is a must especially the desert.

We loved the charming, relaxed atmosphere at the Quinta Don Jose. The staff is warm, attentive and friendly. The grounds are beautiful and inviting. The food is excellent. Tlaquepaque is "muy tranquilo" - removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown - yet close enough to conveniently visit Guadalajara's museums and other offerings. We will definitely return to this gem!
