We check it out… before you check in!

Discover “real apartments and villas” in some of Europe’s most beautiful cities like Copthorne hotel Dubai, ac hotel Milano, Piet Hein Amsterdam, hotel opera Madrid, canary heights London with our own hand-picked collection.

When we started our family business in 1998, we decided to only list those apartments that we would choose to stay in ourselves. That’s why we personally inspect every one of the properties in our collection and that's why you can be sure of a private holiday apartment that’s clean, comfortable and stylish, with a real sense of place.

Although we’ve been in the travel business for a long time, we’re as passionate about our apartments and our customers now, as we were then. You can read the full story here

Inspecting Real Inn Guadalajara Expo - our impressions

We stayed in a one-bedroom timeshare in Real Inn in Guadalajara - real-inn-expo.guadalajara-hotels.com. The unit was nicely furnished and spacious. A balcony overlooked the park and was a great spot to relax and read.

The timeshare portion of the resort is at the far east end of the facility and required a significant walk to the beautiful pools (quite a circuitous route at that). We got used to packing everything we would need and trekking over for several hours. The pool area is large and beautiful. The staff were very pleasant and whatever we needed was quickly brought. The restaurants were rather expensive and there are few alternatives, but with care in ordering, we were able to enjoy nice meals in several places.

We rented a car one day to see downtown Guadalajara (look wotif.co.nz/Huaxtla-Hotels-Hotel-Expo-Inn.h1570376.Hotel-Information) and went to a highly recommended restaurant, LaFonda. Another trip into town was to attend a timeshare pitch which opened new doors and produced some bonuses, the best of which was a dinner cruise to the Arch that was delightful.

Our car trip brought one negative experience when we were trapped in an intersection by traffic as the light changed. A local "officer" saw his opportunity and pulled us over for "running" the light. Hard to do since we weren’t even moving, but...oh well. After a short struggle with his little English and our less Spanish, $40 wrapped in a slip of paper made the "problem" go away. Realities of the real world.

The accessibility of grocery shopping = none! We had to pay $20 per person for a shuttle ride into town. The grocery store had a poor selection of unfresh veggies and meat. We had to settle for familiar food that looked decent. We wanted to eat out but also stay in to save money.

The food at the resort was pretty good, but expensive. There is a buffet, but it's not worth it. It would be more practical to order off the menu. The carne asada is most excellent there. Also, the fried calamari at the pool bar is good.

Guadalajara in October is apparently a good time to go if you don't like crowds. As you can see in the photos, there just weren't many folks around: pricetravel.co/real-inn-guadalajara-expo/hotel-detalle.
