Casa de la Abuela
Ranked #8 of 27 Ajijic B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 March 2016

Tomorrow morning we will leave the Casa de la Abuela after spending five wonderful weeks on the property. We will be back for sure again next year. We love the location as it is right next to a the mountains in which there are trails to hike to the top. it is also within walking distance of the Main Plaza and several great restaurants. The owners Gaby and Beto make you feel at home and there is a nice mix of locals and foreign guests at all times. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is wonderful. There is a nice combination of fruits, juices, cereals and yogurt and Gaby will make you any time of eggs or hotcakes you desire. One of the most positive aspects at the property is the abundant plant life and two friendly dogs Junior and Lady who you can not resist playing with. I recommend the hotel most highly if you want a great Mexican experience and a comfortable hotel this is a sure bet.

Room Tip: A Jacuzzi takes a lot of room. If you will not use it choose another room.

I really enjoyed staying here. The owners are very helpful, wonderful people. The grounds and rooms are clean and well kept. And, the walk to anywhere is easy. After reading one review I thought it would be an uphill climb. That is not the case. I found everything about Casa de la Abuela to be charming. It is family owned and loved by those who care for it and the visitors who stay there.

Nice Place, with nicely appointed rooms, pleasant staff with an OK, but average breakfast. Fresh fruit was a nice add.

I had reached out directly to them, and after no response for many hours, I finally booked at a cheaper rate than they ultimately offered. The rooms were very nicely decorated. The noise from the street below was noticeable in the evening as well as the early morning, but when you look at the window construction, and the location in Ajijic village, you see why. Very, very steep and long wheelchair ramp, but it's there. Same in accessing the pool.

This is a unique 'family feel' hotel with large beautiful grounds. One can relax in a chaise lounge by the pool, enjoy comfortable couch/chair in the lobby, which is really a courtyard, or use the terrace which many rooms have. Quite a few rooms also have kitchenettes. Everything you need is there, if not, you can ask for it. The owners take pride in their hotel and are continuously looking after it and improving it.

Three dogs and two cats are residents. They are well behaved and enhance the atmosphere, at least for animal lovers. The view is spectacular and it's mostly quiet except for daytime noise from a glass/aluminum shop across the street.
Parking is available if you have a car.

Barking dogs and crowing roosters are part of the charm of the village that one probably cannot escape being this close to the village. Please note that
walking several blocks uphill/downhill on cobble stone streets with uneven sidewalks is part of staying at this lovely place. Loved it.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. For quieter room, take one further away from the street. No. 4 is a nice roo...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Grandmother, Teresa, is originally form the State of Michoacán. In 1998 she retired from her business, and moved to the State of Jalisco. She became enamored with the panoramic views and the quality of the people in Ajijic. She soon purchased a beautiful piece of property and began the process of transforming it into the "Casa de la Abuela" B & B. Michoacán is known for artisans that produce precision works of art from various types of wood. Because of this, she decided to decorate each room with the furniture and art work which is typical of her home state. Creating beauty here is a continuing pastime, and each habitation is constantly changing and improving. ... more   less
