I can't say enough nice things about Ajijic Suites and our hosts Luis and Elaine. Luis picked us up at the airport and we were warmly welcomed to our winter escape. Our room was clean and nicely furnished with a little kitchenette. We had intended to prepare some meals in our room but found that the local restaurants were so...

I stayed at Ajijic Suites for 5 months in 2016. I had previously stayed at two other places for 2 weeks each while casing the area, but was immediately impressed by Ajijic Suites when I saw it. It is very clean and well-maintained which is not always the case with other options in the village. If I lost my lease...

We have just spent a wonderful month in Ajijic Suites on Hildago. Elaine and Luis welcomed us and made sure our stay was comfortable...an " at home " feeling from the minute we left the airport where Luis picked us up. My husband got quite sick with the flu/cold when we first arrived and Elaine was there for us with...

My wife and I enjoyed our month in Ajijic Suites so much last year that we opted for year two. In fact we have arranged for 2018 which will be three consecutive years. Ajijic Suites is owned and managed by a lovely woman from Scotland, Elaine Kellaway, who has made Mexico her home and welcomes visitors warmly and supportively. Her...

This was our second visit to Ajijic Suites. You can treat it like any hotel, come and go without more than a "hello" to others. But for us as newcomers to Mexico, Elaine and her guests offered (at each visit) welcome guidance to "what's happening" in Ajijic, and an end-of-the-day camaraderie that helped us ease into this new life. We...

My original review for the Ajijic Suites was for a stay 3 winters ago. My positive opinion from that trip, of both the hotel premises and its' hosts, continues to this second review. More recently, and for this past winter, I returned to Ajijic and spent 2 months in the Violeta Suite, from mid-November to mid-January. I returned to Ajijic...

I attended a professional meeting in Ajijic and stayed with Elaine in a wonderful little apartment with kitchen and view of the central patio and fountain. Elaine went above and beyond to help me get settled: finding a place to eat and get groceries, helping with transportation arrangements and providing me with British tea bags for the kettle in my...

Spent two weeks at Ajijic Suites. The hotel is clean and comfortable. A lovely garden with a fountain that lulls you to sleep at night. Convenient to everything. You can walk anywhere in the village from here. The owners, Elaine and Luis are very friendly and welcoming. They are a veritable encyclopedia of the area, and if they don't have...

Thanks for the great review, Walter! It was a pleasure to have you stay with us for the first time, although we wish it could have been under happier circumstances. We look forward to your return in November - hopefully the first of many "returns" so that you, too, like Tim, become part of the "family". Hasta pronto!
