We stayed in uxlabil ecohppotel for 5 night and enjoyed the quiet of the place, the great staff who made us feel at home and the rooms and the wide porch before each room from which we had a great view of the lake. This hotel is close to San Juan, the most authentic of the villages around the lake.... More

Four of us just enjoyed two nights at this charming hotel. We were in the area for a birding trip and this location was ideal as it is just 10 minutes drive from the start of the San Pedro volcano hike (where the bird we were looking for is found). They picked us up at the dock in Panajachel and... More

We decided to stay at Uxlabil on San Juan after much gnashing of teeth (for the five of us to rent a room, it was $22 each, more than we had spent on any other night) but we found the amenities, beautiful view, and comfortable beds worth the money. You can use the kayaks and their really lovely dock for... More

Uxlabil Eco Hotel overlooking Lake Atitlan in San Juan was a relaxing retreat. There are fancier retreats on Lake Atitlan, but we appreciated Uxlabil because it was a little removed from the rabble of San Pedro or Panajachel. Take the ferry to San Pedro & ask to be dropped off afterwards at the dock for Uxlabil. We appeared to be... More

Very extravagant (in good sense) hotel -- natural materials, fancy garden, folklore decorations, amazing view, crazy squirrels, and hummingbirds! Add lake access and cayacks free of charge (great to get to other villages by water) and you got your perfect nature gataway. But make sure you have warm pajamas and wool blanket in your room, as it can get quite... More

I stayed at Uxlabil with a group. The location is lovely and the village of San Juan is an easy walk. San Juan has a good, sustainable tourism plan in place, and we enjoyed the tour of crafts and coffee. We had no issue with the hotel food- it was slow in coming but tasty. As other have noted the...

Dear Sr/Madame: We appeciate your comments and reviews because they help us increase our service quality, as a proof of that we now have the hot tub perfectly functional and we have built a "metal pergola" (like a gazebo) over it so it's no longer without a roof. We're also trying to see how to improve the light on the... More

A group of folks from my church stays at the Uxlabil every year while we do volunteer work in San Juan and San Pable. The hotel is a highlight of the trip. Every member of the staff--even those I just talk with on the phone or by e-mail--are very friendly and always eager to help. The rooms are delightfully decorated... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in April of this year while visiting San Juan on Lake Atitlan. San Juan proved to be a great town to stay at. People were friendly, safe, and the clothing and arts fantastic, and you get a real feel for life in a Mayan town. We highly recommend San Juan However we... More

The staff at the Eco Hotel is absolutely lovely. They really want you to have a memorable experience - from using the kayaks to enjoying a homemade breakfast. Note, however, that they don't speak any English. Using my iPad app Spanish, my friend's high school Spanish, and lots of hand gestures and sound effects, we were able to communicate and... More

Lakeside on a calm and relaxing bay. Great views and so peaceful to watch the men fishing in the bay. Rooms are really big, clean and cozy with a cottage-y feel. All staff is incredibly friendly, caring and all have great stories to tell. It is just a 2 minute walk to the center of the town of San Juan,... More
