Very pretty views and seems to be a good location. 30-minute drive to downtown, 15-minute drive to the small town of Tlaquepaque, about 20 -30 minutes from the airport. Large property with a nice pool, spacious restaurant that had a good breakfast buffet as well. Pool had a swim up bar in it, but it was not set up for...

The room that we were originally given was one of several rooms which had not been renovated/updated. It was in pretty rough condition, sink would not drain, smelt mildewy, mattresses appeared 40 years old...

Stayed at Hotel El Tapatio and Resort while visiting Mexico for a 12 day road trip. This hotel was comfortable: amenities were outdated but functional (i.e. had hot water, but the plumbing was not perfect). The rooms felt oversized and poorly decorated (renovations would truly help this). My main complaint is that the wifi did not work for the evening...

This hotel had beautiful views of the city, giant rooms, excellent pool/grounds, competent staff, and was easy to find. That said, it is badly in need of renovations. The furnishings look cheap and poorly fit the large rooms clearly designed for a different era. The bed is uncomfortable and most of the space in the room is very poorly used-...
