This place is an absolute treat - it's on the hillside with the most amazing views of the lake - perfect spot for a romantic getaway!! Highlight for me was definitely the outdoor heated jacuzzi under the stars. Taking breakfast in the sunshine on the terrace is a must - as well as lazing the day away with a book... More

Overall, this was a delightful hotel. Magical views, delicious food, a lush / romantic looking place that's tucked perfectly into the hillside. My one complaint was that our room was very dusty. My roommate and I ended up both with breathing problems by the end of our stay. I complained to the front desk, and they sent someone to clean... More

My husband and I stayed here for three wonderful nights. The hotel is gorgeous and located in a simply beautiful location. Our room was cute, cozy (not in the tiny sense of the word), clean and with an amazing view of two volcanoes from our window and small patio (room 10). The hotel was well priced (a bit of a... More

On another forum, I asked a question about a choice of language schools in the Lake Atitlan area. I got a great reply and, in passing, the respondent mentioned the Casa Del Mundo as her "favorite place in the world". I thought "Sure" but my wife and I decided to check it out. It is now my "favorite place in... More

I found this spot by reading other TripAdvisors' reviews and it was exactly how lovely others have described, and MORE! Let me just add one thing I couldn't find on other people's reviews first: This was my first time to Atitlan and I wasn't sure if this hotel had unlimited, purified drinking water so before I got on the lancha...

It is so nice to hear that was your first time at Lake Atitlan and you really enjoy it!, due to our location we always try to keep our purified water stations ready in that way you don’t need to go to the restaurant area to refill bottles or the pitchers of water that we have available in every single...

Its hard to articulate how great of a hotel this is. It is absolutely gorgeous and affordable. Bill and his wife spare no expense in attention to details, courteous staff, and a commitment to excellence. They are constantly improving and growing. I stayed in a nearby hotel 3 years ago, but visited Casa del Mundo. I promised myself I would... More

Nice to know that you had the chance to stay with us this time! Definitely room # 12 is one of the best room on the property if you don’t mind to go up and down stairs. Hope to see you in the future, thank you for your comments. More

La Casa del Mundo is a very SPECIAL place. I truly felt at home. The hotel went out of its way to make me feel at home and well taken care of. And this meant a lot to me because I was a woman traveling alone. The service was excellent. The place exudes warmth and beauty. Not one detail is... More

We recently stayed at the Casa del Mundo at the recommendation of some friends. I must say their lofty description did not do the beauty of the setting justice. As you arrive by boat, you see a lovely hotel built into the side of the rocky hillside. Once inside you have a Panoramic view of the mountains and volcanos surrounding... More

As our boat pulled up to La Casa del Mundo, I knew we'd made the right decision. It looked beautiful, perched on the hill, overlooking the deep blue waters of Lake Atitlan. We were taken to our room, number 20, which we were told is one of the best (although all look amazing). It was a large room with fantastic... More

Beautiful views, our bed looked out over the lake with a view of the volcanoes. It is well run hotel with interesting decor and Eco friendly. The food is delicious especially the breakfasts!

Dear guest, We are glad you enjoy your time in Casa del Mundo, We try to do our best to keep the décor impeccable in that way you can enjoy it, we are always trying to protect our lake recycling almost everything (unfortunately can’t do anything with dippers). Nice to hear that you enjoy the walks and have the opportunity... More
