Jewel of Ajijic- dream place

5 on September 05, 2013

You can only describe the place as a dream come true. When we first arrived we realised that Casa Tres Leones webpage did not do it justice. Talk about a WOW place!!! The views are magnificent, the hosts are charming and welcoming.We felt like beeing in our own home.Our room of choice was the Lovers Suite which has all the home comforts including an in-room fridge and towel warmer!!!! We were sorry to leave after our week long visit and promised to be back as soon as our finances could make it. This is definitely the jewel of Ajijic.

Dream Place to visit again and again.

Behind the walls we found a dream place for our two weeks stay. Alix and Emile go the extra mile to make your stay as memorable as possible. Starting with the daily cooked scrumptious breakfasts followed by the availability of tea/coffee and sweets throughout the day.Emile and Alix's attention to every detail and answers to any of your questions, from tourist questions to residential questions , is legendary. Alix's expertise as a local realtor helped us make our decision on what to buy and where an easy one.The place is kept spotless by caring staff during the week and maintained to a high standard by the owners.We made new friends in our adopted country and recommend Casa Tres Leones to any guest who wants to enjoy all the conforts of home in a beautiful and relaxing setting.
