During our three month stay in Guatemala, my husband and I were searching for a romantic weekend getaway located on Lago Atitlan that also featured a swimming pool, a sauna and a hot tub overlooking the lake with a view of the volcanoes, Tolimán and San Pedro. This is when reading many Trip Advisor reviews really paid off for us.... More

The place is amazing I loved all the options they had from the suite, cabin to the Hostel like house. The hotel accommodates to every budget. We were supposed to have a suite but they didn't have one so they gave us the "old bakery" it wasn't as nice as the other suites but we still had all of the... More

Our return visit to Posada de Santiago was as wonderful as we remembered it from before. We stayed in Casa Angel, a stone cottage with a fireplace and a hammock on the porch, surrounded by tropical greenery and birds. David Glanville, owner of the posada, was warm and hearty as before. We enjoyed fresh delicious meals and wine and margaritas... More

What a beautiful place! Each little apartment is secluded by all the trees and flowers surrounding them. We stayed in a dorm room for 12 as we were a big group and they helpfully placed an extra 2 mattresses in so we could all fit in one room. There was also an equipped kitchen, and some of the best showers... More

We stayed at the Posada de Santiago in November, 2014, and really liked everything about this place. The bungalows are stone mayan themed structures. It's pretty fun and relaxing there among the gardens and tropical birds. The restaurant/main room is great for dinner (really good every night, including a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat). Also fine for breakfast and... More

My daughter and I were here with a rug hooking tour. We were so happy to be placed in bungalow #9-Aguacatel-(avocado) and thoroughly enjoyed making a fire every night and sleeping in the king sized bed next to it! We woke up to see men roasting coffee in the park-like space next to our cabin! It was so interesting to... More

The Posada was full for our dates, but offered us the old bakery (undergoing conversion to a cottage) for half price. It easily exceeded expectations: spacious, clean, kitchenette, huge bathroom. All a bit funky but perfect for our needs. An excellent base to explore this magical area and the town itself. The impressive restaurant didn't disappoint and Petronilla and Rolando... More

The grounds are large and there are a number of stone cottage like rooms scattered across the property. Mine was spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly. I also liked the restauarnt especially the breakfast.

My girlfriend, Lynda, and I loved our rustic, stone-built casa in a lush, park-like setting; it was cozy and comfortable, furnished with all we needed, with a bathroom with dependable hot water, and with a wood-burning fireplace. Only minutes away, downhill, the restaurant was a spacious and most welcoming place. Its tasty and healthy bill of fare, lovingly prepared and... More

Rustic charm in a stone built paradise. Immaculate grounds of tropical foliage. Cottages with fireplaces and candles, coffee makers, DVD player, comfy beds, hot wayer shower, purified water tap in each room. Restaurant was GREAT. I'd spend a couple days here and happily eat breakfast lunch and dinner there. Pool was cool, hot tub was small but warm, chill by... More
