We were there just a couple of minutes and hated the place. The part in front of the lake is so dirty, it has a lot of algee. When we called for ask for details, they told us: in front of the hotel you will be able to swim... They are crazy If they think people will swim there.

Great location right on the lake. Easy walk into town. Great friendly staff. Comfortable rooms, very spacious. A little rustic, but nice. Home cooked meals in the cozy dining room. Great breakfast. Dinner was good too, chicken or tilapia fish. Loved the big covered area in front of the rooms. If your looking for something different this is the place.

This hotel is not the typical sort where you come home, sleep, and leave. This immerses you into the culture of Atitlan. Imagine being woken up by the sounds of tropical birds, to the view of a foggy lake, hugged tightly by mountains with minimal civilized intrusion. Furthermore, the included breakfast is paramount to any included breakfast I'd find in... More

we stayed in Hotel Uxalabil in late May. It is located away from the town of San Juan Laguana on a small bluff overlooking Lake Atitlan, with lovely lake and mountain views. The hotel was clean and pleasant with exceptionally nice staff. Lucas, who seemed to be the caretaker was always cheerful and helpful. Ava was so sweet and cooked... More

Loved the place. All the staff delightful. The bird-watching guide was excellent. Knew all the birds names in 4 languages, the local dialect, English, Spanish and the scientific genus and species. All in all, a very pleasant and rewarding stay. A. Allen

It is a nice place to rest, enjoy the landscape and bird sounds. Very good service. Please leave your car in Panajachel and arrive through the lake. Dont try the road,it is very damaged. Visit near mountains

From the welcoming drink on arrival to the point when your bags are carried out for departure, you feel at home. Although our room at the birdwatching floor was very basic, the staff is making up for that. Great meals, hospitality and vipe. The town is reached by a small path that meanders along the lake. If you arrive by... More

We just returned from spending four nights at Hotel Uxlabil on Lake Atitlan. At first, I was a little concerned about the isolation of the property, but the next day we learned that it's a nice 10-minute walk to town. The quiet (except for the early morning buses which honk their horns LOUDLY) and private location made up for this.... More

Hi! Thank you leaving a comment. Most of the guests that visit us for the first time get concerned about the isolation but, as you said the town is really near. Being in this place help us to distinguish us for being a hotel to rest, be in touch with nature, you can hear almost the birds singing and having... More

We spent 5 nights here and loved it. The hotel is in a very quiet, beautiful spot. Just a 10 minute walk to San Juan along a safe lake path, and about a 10 minute walk along the road to San Pedro, which is safe to do as well. The upstairs rooms are a bit brighter, but the lower rooms... More
