This is the best in Guadalajara

We have stayed at this wonderful hotel almost every year for the past eleven years. It is a true gem and we look forward to our stay and the chance to spend time with Estela and the staff. The rooms are wonderful and the grounds are amazing. Ask Charlie for a margarita at happy hour.

Mexico at its best -

We visited from Vancouver, Canada in October. Started out by renting a house on the coast in Sayulita north of Puerto Vallarta for one month. Wanted to show the kids a big Mexican city so rented a car and travelled to Guadalajara. Awesome 3 hr drive, safe too no problems at all. You must visit the Cuervo distellery in the town of Tecate on the way there or back. Reached Guadalajara and got lost a couple of times, finally made it to Tlaquepaque and found Quinta Don Jose. After the traffic, noise and everything else that goes with a big city I tell you when those big doors open to let you in the parking lot, all you need is heavenly music to go with it. Kids screamed with excitement when they saw the grounds. We were going to stay only two nights but extended our stay to four. The market is two blocks away in the heart of the most traditional part of Mexico, Mariachi based Tlaquepaque. The people at Quinta Don Jose treat you like no other, this is what the real Mexico is all about, people that give you their hearts with a smile. The food and drinks are incredible. They even changed our flat tire for us on the last day and washed your car. Simple put, wife and kids cried when we left because they did not want to go back to Sayulita and the Beach, that is how nice this place is. Every where you look is traditional Mexican art and absolutely spotless. Only comment is the pool is very cold, and hey we are from Canada!! We will go back again!

Es un lugar que supero por mucho lo que yo esperaba encontrar, y deseo regresar a el lo mas pronto posible. El personal es de primera, su trato es muy amable y cortez, su cocina es magnifica, pero desearia pudieran poner la clasica comida mexicana para beneplacito de los amantes de la clasica cocina mexicana.

From the kind greeting at the airport, my experience in this beautiful B & B continued to exceed anything I could have imagined. The lovely surroundings and charm of Quinta Don Jose will draw me back, in fact it was difficult to leave. Each staff person was such a pleasure, ensuring a memorable stay, going above and beyond just to meet our needs.A truly excellent experience all together! The warmth and generous spirit of this gem of Tlaquepaque

beautiful and comfortable

I would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it to my family. The decor in the main building and dining room was well done. My party of seven were all very comfortable, satisfied and felt at home. My only regret was not knowing how great the dinners were there and only dined there two of the four nights. Next time I'll know better and dine there every night. It was the perfect place for us to share some down-time together and convenient to shared activities.

¡Increíble! ¡Simplemente los mejores de los mejores!

Today is my day to devote my return travel arrangements to Mexico, the highlight of which has been reading the reviews of all of those travellers who feel the same as I about the Quinta Don Jose! In actuality, I would love to live, full-time at QDJ. My girlfriend and I happened upon QDJ by chance, and never looked back! We were overwhelmed by the "Family" of staff. A short time after our departure, I returned with my husband, who was ill and in need of extra TLC. We could not have asked for the care, consideration and love that he received! Deborah

A well-hidden secret

From the street, you would never know what a wonderful oasis is to be found behind the gates at the Quinta Don Jose Hotel. My family of four stayed for 4 nights ( July 1st to 5th) and others of the family even stayed longer. We all agree that it was an outstanding hotel with the friendliest folks around. My limited Spanish was not a problem, as many of the staff are fluent in English. They were happy to be of help. The rooms were spacious, beautifully decorated, and outstandingly clean. I would return to the Quinta Don Jose any time!

Excellent Service, Great Location

A truly wonderful experience! The owners and staff made my stay exceptional. I truly felt at home and the kitchen staff could have not been more pleasant! I would recommend it highly. The location is perfect, just walking distance to all the wonderful attractions. Thank you again

This B&B is amazing. It is one of my fondest memories of staying in Mexico. I have stayed here 3 times and will continue to suggest it to my freinds and family and can't wait to return myself.

Excellent in all respects

When we first pulled up in front of the hotel I questioned in my mind "Did I make a mistake and picked a wrong place" There is not much to see from the outside at all. The inn sits on a side street about two/three blocks from the center plaza, but once we rang the bell and the extremely courteous attendant came and took us insde I was taken back. Arturo had developed a bit of paradise within the masonry walls that surround this truly great hotel. His staff is great, his accomadations are super, the food is excellent, and they all speak great english. The words beauty, friendly and cleaniness our spoken here with great pride and excellence. I am looking very forward to many more stays with these great people and their fabulous inn. Mal Hildebrand Springfield, Illinois
