This place is truly a gem. The lodge is fantastic and Walter, the 14 year old cook knows how to present an unforgettable culinary experience to delight anyone's appetite. The lodge is a well kept inn with beautiful gardens and the nicest owner and staff imaginable. The location is great for hanging out at Ven Aca and enjoying their restaurant,... More

Great spot tucked away in Jaibalito. Exotic cactus garden. Great food. Great view. Huge rooms with Wi-fi. 5 minute walk from a restaurant with a pool and hot tub. There is also a beautiful hiking trail to Santa Cruz that starts in front of the lodge.

In January 2014 we came to Vulcano Lodge for three nights, stayed twelve and returned in March for another four nights before going home to England. Of all the places during our two months travelling around Guatemala, Southern Mexico and Belize, this gem of a small hotel was our favourite. To walk up the winding path through the beautiful, calm... More

So, i'm going in to my last night at Vulcano Lodge.. And I don't want to leave. Feeling kinda sad about it. This little place is so charming and beautiful! The suite has the most amazing view over the lake and the vulcanos, and it feels unreal! The staff is so welcoming and makes you feel really at home. They... More

Stopped in Jaibalito for the day and ended up having lunch at here. Very peaceful and secluded location. Would love to come back and stay in one of the rooms sometime. The views from the balconies were amazing.

Our stay at Vulcano Lodge was amazing. We had a really good time her from beginning til end. The first two nights we lived in the suite, wich was incredible. The view from here over the lake and vulcanos was beautiful. Then we moved down to a smaller room, where we lived in the garden, wich was also really nice.... More

Gustavs hotel, vulcano lodge, is a little bit of paradise! Jaibalito itself is kind of noisy, but it's part of the culture and experience, with all the churches playing music and the kids in the streets. It did not ruin my stay here at all! Gustav is a fantastic host and his staff is so nice! If you have any... More

One of the best stays we had in Guatemala. Great location, beautiful rooms with terrace, excellent restaurant, staff unbelievably charming (Gustav the owner is a treat, and Roman who manages the restaurant is a jazz fan and plays the best music). Can't say enough good things, this place should be called the "Good Karma" lodge, but Vulcano Lodge will do.

Almost hate to review this place because it's off-the-beaten-path tranquility is part of its charm. But Gustav and his wonderful staff deserve success. There is easy access to beautiful lake hikes and boat rides to other villages, but it was also hard to rip ourselves away from the Lodge's amazing garden. Unlike with some of the other hotels in this... More

Difficult review as the hotel itself deserves a top rating but with the noise it deserves a bottom rating. The hotel and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. Attention to detail everywhere. Our suite had magical views of the volcanoes and of beautiful flowers and greenery. The staff were spectacular as well. You couldn't ask for better or nicer on the... More
