Our family just didn't want to leave! From the moment we arrived...it was enchanting. La Casa del Mundo is only accessible via boat...which is the first amazing piece of the adventure. When the heavily-packed boat pulled up, we were already ooh-ing & ahh-ing at the Swiss Family Robinson-like structure greeting us from the steep rocky hillside. The dockhands helped us... More

My son and I spent three days at La Casa del Mundo at the end of March. It was truly relaxing! Birds singing, pretty gardens, wonderful friendly staff. The owner and his wife are very conscious of the environment, and it shows in the way the hotel is run. Look forward to returning one day in the not to distant... More

What an amazing stay! I can't stop raving about the place! The only thing I wish had been different is to have more than 2 nights here! We arrived at the dock and were greeted by one of the staff who told us to leave our bags and he would carry them up -- we didn't realize the steep incline... More

I wish we could have stayed longer! We were in room number 10 and although it was quite a hike from the dock to the room, and a little bit from the cafe, it was well worth it. There was a small patio outside our room where we could enjoy the scenery and a small window in the room as... More

Make your reservations early for this gem on Lake Atitlan. Dinners, served to the group, are fabulous and the people you meet are interesting. Service is impeccable. Awakening to a view of the volcanos and the water lapping at the lake's edge is like being on a land cruise. Our second visit and it did not disappoint. Advice: You do... More

Stayed for three nights in March 2014. Absolutely superb hotel, with stunning views, clean facilities and attentive staff. The breakfasts are great and the family style dinners, where several excellent courses were served to hotel guests around a shared table, were a social highlight of my trip, allowing us to engage with fellow guests and discuss the sights we'd seen...

A concert of birdsong in the morning and twinkling fireflies after dark - what a wonderful place to spend several days. The setting is spectacular, clinging to the hillside above Lake Atitlan, the rooms are lovely, modern amenities and traditional decor, with windows all around to take in the views of the lake, volcanoes and villages. The dining room is... More

I loved this place as a solo traveler. The combination of being with others in the evening for a community dinner and having my own little quiet world during the day was perfect. I think the owner is an incredible man to have created on his own such a unique little paradise. He designed and built it! Yes, the steps... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night in March 2014. The setting on a cliff overlooking the lake and volcanos is spectacular. It is a hike to get from the boat up to the office and then the room, but it was worth it. The room was beautifully decorated with authentic Guatemalan artifacts and had numerous windows overlooking the... More

If you can snag a room at this much coveted hotel then don't even hesitate. My family and I were lucky enough to reserve three nights at this unbelievable hotel and they were three of the most magical nights we have ever had. Making the reservation was very easy since you can do it yourself on their website with pictures... More
