Retirement; like your parents, but way cooler
In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age
of 38. Now, into their 4th decade of this
financially independent lifestyle, they invite you
to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.
Restaurant - Cantina
Hotel Impala, Santiago de Queretaro,
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli
When we purchased our
reservations online at Booking.com for our stay at
Hotel Impala in
Queretaro, we opted for the breakfast that was included in
This was a wise decision!
Not only did we not have to
hurry out of
our rooms because we were hungry, but we also discovered that the restaurant
- Suite 18 - which was located downstairrs, also had a bar with botanas.
All of this turned out to
be a "steal-of-a-deal" - See below.
Outdoor seating at Restaurante and Cantina
It turns out that Suite 18 has 3 seating
This is outdoor seating downstairs in front
of the hotel. There is a restaurant upstairs, and a bar just inside the
entranceway of the hotel.
View of upstairs Suite 18 from Hotel entranceway
This is the entranceway of the Hotel. To the
right (out of view) is the bar portion of Suite 18.
Upstairs in the walkway is the restaurant.
Elevator is to the left and the check-in desk
is directly to the right across the tile walkway.
Fresh bread, butter and jam for breakfast
Suite 18 Restaurant was open for breakfast
from 7 am to 10 am.
Daily we arrived and ordered breakfast from a
variety of choices. Freshly baked bread, with butter and jam was served along
with our meal.
Fresh sliced fruit with lime
The most sweet and delicious fresh fruit with
lime was also included, or one could have ordered juice.
This plate has watermelon, papaya and
Cheese omelet with refried beans
I often ordered a cheese omelet, but you
could add bacon or ham to the omelet or order Huevos Rancheros instead.
Bacon and eggs were also offered.
Refried beans and a couple of chips
accompanied this breakfast.
Believe me this was plenty of food!
Copitas of Tequila with lime
One could sit upstairs and order drinks,
snacks or a meal for dinner.
The view is of the
Alameda Park, just across the street from our hotel.
Chamorro with rice
One evening we decided to stay in and sit at
the downstairs bar.
Billy had a draft beer and I had a copita
Promptly the waiter came by and asked if we
wanted some botanas. Apparently, we looked a little confused, so he
explained that they were "on the house."
We were presented with this chamorro - a pork
shank cooked to falling-off-the-bone - in a deliciously mild red sauce.
Think "pot roast" except it is pork.
This is one of the specialties of Mexico that
we truly love.
True to his word, we only paid for our
drinks, and we left him a generous tip.
Pricing of rooms at Hotel Impala
These are the walk-in prices for staying at
As we mentioned, we purchased our
reservations online through Booking.com and paid 833 Pesos per night (about
$42USD) which included breakfast.
Add that to the botanas we received at
the convenient Suite 18's downstairs bar, and the price was remarkable.
