La Fortuna is a gem of an eco resort. We spent three nights on this enchanted property in late-April and would recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic getaway on Lago Atitlán. The water was clear and fresh in the bay; we enjoying kayaking, swimming, hot-tubbing, and showering, all of which are fed by lake water. The owners are... More

La fortuna was amazing. The best place my girlfriend and I have ever stayed. We stayed in suite 1 which has amazing views. The rooms are very comfy with amazing beds, great outdoor bathrooms and a huge balcony with an incredible view of the lake. Kat and Steve the owners have thought of everything, they are so helpful with ideas... More

The staff was great; they anticipated our needs before we knew what they were! The bungalow was beautiful, the food was great, and the dogs were delightful! We would recommend La Fortuna to anyone who needs a relaxing break!

We had an unbelievable time here! It's in an incredibly beautiful location, the bungalows are UNREAL, the food delicious, I could go on and on. From kayaking on the lake, laying out on the dock, napping in the hammocks, we had a incredible time. Steve and Kat were wonderful hosts and I would recommend La Fortuna to anyone! !

La Fortuna is truly amazing. We stayed in a bungalow overlooking Lake Atitlan for our anniversary, and could not stop saying to each other, "Wow... This is incredible." There's a beautiful dining area and bar and several other places to sit and admire the lake on the property, but we were able to enjoy the view from the hammock &... More

The only bad thing about this place is that we were only able to enjoy it for a night. It is absolutely gorgeous, immaculate attention to detail, totally serene, and everything that the 5 star reviews have claimed it to be. The owners were welcoming, friendly, helpful in arranging transport, but have everything so ready for you that they can... More

Wow! What a wonderful place to get away from the cares of the world! My husband and I loved everything about this beautiful place! The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional! It was so secluded since the only entry was by boat. We were so impressed with the design of the structures and furniture and the clever and... More

We had a fantastic two nights at La Fortuna after hearing a chance recommendation from another group of travellers while we were staying in Lake Atitlan. We were astonished by how incredibly beautiful it was, right on the water's edge with the most gorgeous wooden bungalows built into the forest. Georgie, Steve & Kat really go out of their way...

From the first contact on the phone we were sure we had stumbled across something a bit special. We travel pretty much continually and extensively primarily in Central and Southern America so when we stay somewhere exceptional we recognise it very quickly. Boat ride to the lodges across the lake is fun and a lovely welcome from Kat and the... More

Stepping onto the dock of this property; you realize why this place has amazing reviews! This place is so relaxing and views are just breathtaking. We stayed in bungalow #1 which provided a great view of the lake. On the porch of our bungalow were two chairs to sit and relax in. There is also a table so you can... More
