Well worth a $5 tuk tuk ride from Panajachel, the Hotel Atitlan Gardens are spectacularly beautiful. We lost count of the variety of flowering plants, succulents, ivies, trees, shrubs, you name it. It is lush and verdant and you have the feeling you are wandering through someone's secret garden. This hotel is quite nice, the restaurant, bar, boutique, pool, hot... More

This may be the best Hotel in Panajachel. You will need to walk about 20 minutes to get to the town centre. We had a suite and it was great. Huge and very comfortable. There is a restaurant thats good. Not as good as some other choices in town but still quite good especially if you do not want to... More

People pay to see this garden with we stayed in the hotel so it was all ours at any time. I liked that all plants where clearly named. Rose garden, pond, white peacock. What a haven for a weary traveller. End the day in the infinity hot tub and gaze at the lake and volcanoes.

We spent over 2 hours walking around and enjoying the botanical gardens. THey are well looked after by a large staff of gardeners. It looks beautiful and we took loads of pictures of the different exotic flowers, plants, trees, parrots, toucans, and the view of the lake. If you are a guest the entrance is free, if you come as...

We stayed at the hotel and enjoyed the gardens during our stay. A large team of gardeners worked long and hard in the gardens, and it was easy to see that there efforts were paying off as there was a tremendous range of beautiful plants set off by well manicured lawns.

The gardens are stunning. We have spent money to visit gardens less spectacular than this one. There is no entry fee here if you are a guest of the hotel. We enjoyed seeing the birds, especially the macaw, who is allowed out of its enclosure during the day and who proved to be quite a clown.

The gardens are magnificent and there are hidden talkers all around. Visit all the gardens. You'll be amazed at the number of animals, the topiary, the flora and the beautiful setting.
