This was my first visit here. Came with another couple that had stayed here 2 other times. I had room 17 great view of both volcanos. But there are a lot of stairs!! No tv's which is ok for a couple of days but can get a bit boring. Loved the family style dining experience you get to meet many... More

What a wonderful place! This is an eco-friendly, artfully designed hotel graciously overlooking the wondrous Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. Most of the rooms are really like private casitas, all have water vistas or a balcony that hangs over the lake. Half the fun of being here is wondering the property and discovering little garden grottos for sitting, dreaming, meditating…. The... More

Positive- The hotel is a bit away from any village, so its very quiet at night and you can see many stars here. You can feel you are on "vacation" Hot shower here was one of the best in Guatemala! Negative- a scorpion fell on our bed from the ceiling and hotel staff explained us its harmless. But local friend... More

Such a beautiful hotel, the grounds are stunning with views you will never tire of. I stayed in room 12 which was spacious and filled with beautiful textiles. The staff are very helpful and the rooms and grounds are obviously very well maintained. The dinners were excellent and they have a great selection of choices for breakfst and lunch. Don't... More

The hotel runs a little different than most...you book ahead of time and yet pay in cash at the end of your stay, you reserve your dinner meal the morning of(first night's dinner is booked ahead of your stay) and also pay this bill at the end, etc. The family style dinner was a super fun way to get to...

La Casa del Mundo has become our home away from home when in Guatemala. The non-profit organization I belong to has been taking volunteer groups to this hotel for a number of years, and every year we feel it gets better and better. The scenery is unparalleled, volcanoes, lake, villages, sunrises and sunsets, all deeply immersed in the ancient Mayan... More

This is one of my wife's and my favorite places in the world to date. This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at Casa Del Mundo. The food and service are excellent. The views are spectacular. The value is, I think, very hard to beat. The hotel consists of clusters of rooms spread out over the... More

My husband and I stayed at la casa for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. We were in room 8, which is pretty small but comfortable enough and like all of the hotel rooms we had a great view. We had the family style dinner each night which was really delicious! The food is amazing, but saying that there... More

The hotel is great, at a fantastic place. The rooms are comfortable and have nothing to envy in these the if surroundings. The problem us flexibility. The customer does not come first. The rules are Absolut. This is probably the owners fault. We were going on a tour, early. But they would not serve breakfast before regular time. They would... More

Dear guest, We are glad you enjoy our rooms and the surroundings. We’re happy to prepare local, fresh, high quality ingredients and vegetables grown in the region and that is the main reason we start serving breakfast at 8am until 11am. A few weeks ago we started to offer a small menu for breakfast starting at 7am until 8am including,... More

Based on the reviews, we already expected wonders from Casa Del Mundo, and still our expectations were exceeded! We were late getting the boat from Panajachel and missed dinner time, but when we arrived there was still a meal waiting for us. Our room (#12) was absolutely beautiful and I would recommend it highly. Apparently the view in #13 is... More
