Good and Nice hotel with a beautiful view to the lake. The access to the hotel area is a little hard, it needs to be improved. The garden are beautiful and well kept. Rooms are clean. Spa doesn't work efficiently...they left me waiting more then 10m alone for a massage and of course I gave it up. Great place to... More

This hotel is top-notch when it comes to surrounding scenery, beautiful rooms, and an excellent dining room. The gardens are quite impressive and constantly cared for. The lake is right at the edge of the gardens. The rooms are quite nice with plenty of amenities. The staff is attentive in every way. The dining room serves excellent food, and the... More

This hotel charges non guests to go around its gardens. The hotel has its own security perimeter. It is situated at the foot of the mountains in a small bay, the view of the bay is spoilt by 3 tower blocks of a hotel constructed of green painted concrete. Having said that, the tower blocks are not visible for the... More

The rooms are not nice. They are dark during the day and rustic. The beds are not comfortable. Don't forget flip flops for the shower. We got bitten by bed bugs!!! The gardens, the views and the swimming pools are worth staying there. But you can also stay somewhere else and go there for a cup of tea and have... More

Do yourself a favor and stay here on the lake at least one night! Service was good from the moment we walked into the hotel and continued while we were waiting for our transportation that was an hour late. The manager called our transportation coordinator and kept getting updates for us. The rooms are nice, not over the top. They... More

I will recommend to take a visit and take advantage of the gorgeous views (really it is the most beautiful lake in the world). Once you are there you can see their beautiful gardens. You should avoid to sleep in there, the rooms are old with very bad taste, the tv's are old, bathrooms are awful, beds and linens are... More

This was our first time in Guatemala and it was a great surprise. We flew into Guatemala City and hired a driver from Atitlan Adventures in Panajachel. It was cheaper than booking through the hotel for 4 of us. The drive was long (3 1/2 hrs) from the airport especially during the rain but it was nice to see the... More

This is one of my favorite hotels in the world. We are returning there next week for the 3d time. The main part of the hotel is exquisitely kept and decorated with local art, the dining room is colorful with friendly staff, colorfully clad in local dress. One has gorgeous views of the high altitude, volcano circled Lake Atitlan from... More

Panajachel is still a place that has not seen the uber development we see where views are breathtaking. I am not exactly sure why (government rules about property ownership with outsiders), but this place has an incredible view of Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes in the background. The food was good too. The place has its own feel. It does... More
