La Sabilas was our first stop on a 2 week self-guided tour for my wife and I thru the western highlands. We very much enjoyed our 3 day stay in busy, picturesque Guadalajara and in our oasis from the bustle, La Sabilas. As described in other reviews Robert has created a garden paradise that is both tasteful and unique. The atmosphere in La Sabilas is casual but we found Robert to be very helpful for suggestions on things to do, places to eat and helping with travel arrangements (the taxi service right next door is great). Coffee is always on in the morning and we really enjoyed walking the short distance to a big market for the most amazing fruit/yogurt based blended drinks that formed a whole meal on their own! La Sabilas is a 10-15 minute pleasant walk thru the quiet neighbourhood to the heart of the old town. This location worked very well for us.
Aside from the fact that Robert is a smoker and on occasion some smoke did linger we enjoyed our stay in La Sabilas and would certainly stay here again. Should also note that as the guesthouse was not overbooked at the time we were there Robert upgraded our room and did not charge us any extra for this...very considerate! Thanks Robert.
