Casa de la Abuela
Ranked #9 of 27 Ajijic B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 October 2017

Family owned and operated, Gaby and Beto will take good care of you during your stay. Scenic tropical location with a pool and manicured grounds, this hotel is just up the hill from the main town plaza.

Most rooms have kitchenettes, and some have Jacuzzis, too. The rooms are clean and well maintained, and if you need something, just ask!

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the street may be noisy with traffic in the morning, but there are no bad locations.

The hotel is the real deal Mexico. Gaby and her staff were very nice. Loved the old world charm, nice rooms ,great view and wonderful breakfast. Very high on the hill. Our friend who uses a cane had a tough time. It would of been fine but could not get a cab coming back from dinner. They just don't want to deal with a short fare, Won't come back for that reason. US PRICES ON REAL ESTATE AND RENTALS OFFENDS ME, I am Canadian and we are in MEXICO. I only use the currency of the country I am in.

The hotel is on the hill. A little bit of a hike. I enjoyed my stay. The bed was comfortable. Unfortunately the pool is cold . Nobody swam in there. The owners and staff are very friendly. Breakfast was good. Made fresh to order .About 10 minutes walk to town square.

This is a family operation with excellent attention to customer service and comfort. The accommodation was a suite with a well-equipped kitchenette. There is a great free breakfast and the owner Gabriella baked a special banana pastel that was outstanding.
She also made an excellent recommendation for a restaurant with live music.

The place was a little noisy, but this is Mexico so I can't complain. The rooms are reasonably priced.

I look forward to my next visit.

Checked in to a warm welcome late on a Thursday night. Long day to get there. Our room was #1 and right near the entrance. Plenty of help with our luggage. Very good room and a very good night's slumber. Sure there are chickens and dogs. After all it's Mexico you know. It was quiet in the AM but coffee was ready around 7:00 AM. Great breakfast with fresh cooked eggs if you wanted them. Downhill walk to the main street and the plaza. Very helpful hosts and a great value. Highly recommended.

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
