El Tapatio Hotel and Resort

Would not recommend Sun, Sep 12, 2010
The hotel fell below expectations. Few of the staff spoke English. There was a roach crawling in my bed. The room was musty and mildew smelling. The pillows were very uncomfortable. The Huevos Rancheros was runny and tasteless. The person, who drove me to the airport, told me to give him a good tip. On the plus side, the pool area was lovely, though, I didn't use it; and, the views of the city were great. One of the bell hops spoke English and he was helpful. The business center was good. I could access the Internet with no problem. Overall, I couldn't wait to leave the hotel and I had to make sure I wasn't taking any unwanted bugs out with me. I didn't sleep a wink, because I was worried that more roaches would appear in the bed. I left a light on in the room all night to discourage roaches from encroaching.

"A good one"

Would recommend Mon, Aug 2, 2010
It is a good hotel, very clean and quiet with a particular weahter. Nice people and good food. I had too stay for more days and I didn't doubt to extend my stay there. I could be better if they: Change those old telephones and 20" TV's.

The Good and the bad!

Would recommend Thu, May 27, 2010
The hotel itself was picturesque. The staff as a whole was friendly with the exception of the hotel staff who insisted using their taxis. We later found out that we were charged more than double the fair price for their service but it was too late. We had been there 3 days and were preparing for our departure the next evening. Fortunately, we did find an honest cabbie that not only told us about their scam but took us everywhere we wanted to go for two days for $30.00. All we had to do was to call him on his cell phone and he would always be there within minutes. En route to the airport, our cabbie told us that we could just as easily used the free hotel shuttle for all the destinations we were taken by their Taxis!!!!!! At about $20.00 DLLS. a ride each way, that was about $240.00 plus tips spent needlessly. What a rip-off!!!!!!! The other problem was the water.Don't drink it. Don't get close to it! Beware of Montezuma's revenge. It exists.

Excellent Value

Would recommend Wed, Apr 28, 2010
I spent over a week at El Tapatio and found it a delightful hotel. The room was big with a King size bed, terrace with a beautiful view of GDL. Pool is huge and if you are there on the weekends the bar in the pool is great. I had dinner one night in the lower level restaurant and found the meal excellent and a good value. I have stayed at a number of hotels in GDL and El Tapatio was lower in cost and more beautiful. I liked the styling as I actually felt like I was in Mexico. THe one point of note is that if you stay there you will either need taxi service or better yet rent a car to get around.

El Tapatio

Would recommend Sun, Mar 7, 2010
The hotel is great the location has a great view of the city at night, there were only a few things wrong with it, the disco is boring they play slow 80's english love music, even if you ask them to play spanish music to get your party going they dont. The other thing is there was a doormen name [...] who had the taxi double charge us by telling him "on the turn" in spanish so instead of it being 170 pesos it was 350 pesos, other than that this hotel is great just watch out for the doorman named [...] and the disco great view just needs way better music.
