Stayed three nights with my daughter and her friend. This is not a luxury stay, but you will enjoy the most amazing views, people (they will arrange tours and activities) and food I would highly recommend Hotel el Arca de Noe. I will be back.

I came here in 2003 and was determined to return because of its peaceful atmosphere and gorgeous locations. Since then it has improved a lot, including the addition of electricity, which makes a big difference! First and foremost, the location is amazing. Santa Cruz is probably the nicest part of the lake for me. Very quiet and with water clean... More

The views are great from this hotel - especially from room 3 (which has a little balcony and less tree cover). The room was quite sweet - decorated well and with fresh flowers on the desk. The rooms all have lots of windows and little en suites that are new. Some bugs/spiders in the room, but not many. The rooms... More

Hotel el Arca de Noe is not just a place to lay your head for a night or two its so much more. When we arrived it was under a heavy cloud and you could just about make out how stunning the area was. We stayed a few days and it was a great decision because we spent 2 days... More

We stayed at Arca de Noe for 5 nights and it was one of the most memorable moments of our short stay in Lago de Atitlán. The hotel is right at the dock to your left. The best way to reach them is through Tzan Juyu Dock, ask for Santa Cruz and pay Q10 per person for the boat ride;... More

It was my first time I Guatemala, let alone Santa Cruz, so I had no idea what to expect. Pulling up to the dock on the boat from San Pedro I was floored. The village rose up the mountainside into the clouds like a dream, behind two hotels nestled in the foliage by the lake. One being the Arca de... More

If you are looking for somewhere tranquil to stay, then Santa Cruz is perfect. There are just a few guesthouses to choose from but we struck gold with Arca De Noe. All rooms overlook the lake and are all a discreet distance apart from each other so you have privacy. We stayed in the most basic room (170Q incl tax)... More

I stayed here with my Mom and my friend for a couple nights before heading to Antigua. The hotel is quiet and relaxing. It is a short walk from a louder hostel if you are looking to meet people or party. The rooms have a cabin-like feel to them, so don't expect televisions or bathtubs. I can't describe how beautiful... More

I just returned from Arca de Noe, where I stayed with family for a few days of relaxation. The place is even better the second time around. Many improvements have been made since my last visit. The Quetzal room, my favorite, has new furniture, new paint, new windows and cosmetic improvements but the same old comfortable rustic charm. Pedro and... More

If you want authentic Guatemalan food or some of your favorite American dishes you are sure to find them at Hotel el Arca de Noe on Lake Atitlan. We just happened to find this place while walking along the lake one afternoon and decided to stop for a bite to eat. We were not disappointed. The lake view was wonderful,... More
