We loved the friendly people , beautiful surroundings, perfect weather, great food, heated pool! What more could you ask for? Close enough to walk to town, catch a bus or get a taxi if you don't want to walk. We will definitely go back

Very moderate cost. Pretty decent breakfast available, weather permitting, in lovely poolside location. Was there at low season, but still a friendly, welcoming, skilled bartender on duty in the evenings. Rooms were lean on amenities, but bottled water was provided daily and room was very clean. Very comfortable bed. The hotel is in a lovely, upscale residential neighborhood, 0.8 km...

While not luxurious, the Real is an excellent hotel, very clean and well situated on the shore of Lake Chapala. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff were very friendly. The rooms are clean and bright, especially the ones with a lake view.

Recently visited this hotel with family. Restaurant has delicious food (buffet was amazing especially for breakfast with a lot of options). Rooms are comfortable only downside was we stayed in the first floor garden view room and there was not much natural light coming in to the room even during the day. Great service we will be going back soon!

We recently stayed at this hotel while attending the Focus on Mexico Learning Seminar. The property is nice and the rooms are huge. One thing we find frustrating is that they always throw away the bathroom sink and shower soaps (which are used only once) and don't replenish them. Once or twice, hand towels and bath towels are not replenished...

This was a perfectly lovely hotel. The rooms are very large and very clean. We had a second floor lakefront room with two double beds. We left the maid two dollars (40 peso's a day) and she really made sure everything was top notch in our room. I even wrote little notes to her under her tip in Spanish (just...

We recently discovered this hidden gem of a hotel and restaurant when a neighbor told us about the Sunday brunch. The hotel is right on Lake Chapala in the lush La Floresta neighborhood. The grounds are vast and well maintained. The restaurant overlooks the pool and lake. The waiters are in white shirts with vests and matching bow ties. We...

Looks like a weekend getaway hotel more than anything with the lack of space at the weekends these old UN-maintained hotels become necessary places to stay but in a real world you would not even leave your pet to stay here.
