The staff is great! Breakfasts are amazing and the rooms (even the tree house) are cozy! Trully, the greatest hostel in Atitlán. If you go, take mosquito repellent with you. The village is safe and is located at a perfect spot to witness sunsets.

My family and I always come go Santiago and Pana every year to enjoy the lake, however we arrived during the holiday and had no where to stay so we picked this hotel. I would like to comment that the staff is pretty friendly and the lady who attended us was nice however there was a "no smoke" sign on... More

We spent two nights here in May this year and have to say the location and the staff and layout of this place are just perfect. We had two rooms above the pool table area which were very basic but with a comfortable bed and shared bathroom facilities out back. Simple but just what we needed because when you are... More

Perfect location in one of the least explored towns around Atitlan. Friendly easy breezy staff. Great food with just the correct seasoning and yes... I would definitely would return to this magical place!

OK, in fairness this is only a review of my experience with the restaurant located in the hotel. I have not stayed at the hotel. My son and I arrived around noon. We showed ourselves to a table which is typical and not all that unusual around the lake in Guatemala. Inside the restaurant there was a young lady behind... More

This is one of the best hostels i have been too. Its right on the lake Atitlan. Everything is clean and propper. The staff here is AMAZING!! Everyone, including the backpackers were super nice. For supper its a three course meal in the dinning room only. It creates a nice calm environment to talk to other people. Almost every time... More

I have been to this hotel 3-4 times, and it is always the location i chose from the wide selection around the lake if i want to treat myself to a few drinks (very cheap) and a little party in the evening. The staff are mostly expats and speak English, and have always been really helpful and generally cool people.... More

We booked into La Iguana after our 3 day trek from Xela as we wanted to chill out and rest up for a few days.This place did not disappoint at all, great facilities and delicious meals, it's family style dining in the evenings which is very social.The views across the lake are priceless.Would highly recommend staying here.

very relaxed and tucked away in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Staff was fun, funny and professional. Felt very safe and comfortable. This is a good place to explore from. I'd strongly recommend some diving, and of course the awesome hiking
