Isla Verde is a beautiful resort just nestled a five minute walk from the town of Santa Cruz. Right on the waterfront it has amazing veiws from both the restaurant and the sundeck where you can literally spend all day relaxing. I found the staff were always happy to help while I was here, both the international staff who work... More

I stayed here one night during my 5 days in Lake Atitlan and I have to say, it was the worst night. I'm not really sure how this place has such good reviews because when I was there, there was almost no service at all. There was someone to check me in at 3 pm, but after I dropped my... More

Very much enjoyed my stay here. The view from both the restaurant and our room was great. We spent mornings and evenings sitting there enjoying the scenery. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our room was a cabin with a view of the lake and a cool semi-outdoor attached bathroom. The climb to our cabin was about 250 steps,... More

I went to this beautiful place for a yoga and singing retreat plus a couple of extra nights. Ah, sitting in a swing among flowers cascading from the ceiling, basking in the warm sun on the deck, gazing at the stars, enjoying the morning birds, dining overlooking the lake... I stayed in a single cabin high up on the hill... More

This is THE place to stay in Santa Cruz, and in my opinion at Lake Atitlan. This place has adorable bungalows with amazing views. Our bungalow had an outdoor bathroom which we loved! The food is GREAT. there are lots of private, secluded spots to hang out and enjoy life. At night they have a wonderful candlelight dinner service and... More

Located on Lake Atitlan, this is one of the nicest places to stay if you are looking for something quiet outside several popular destinations around the Lake. The rooms are nice and clean, service is good and some of the shared bathrooms are like nothing I have seen in developing countries. You are almost tempted to move into one of... More

First time to Guatemala and what a great place to stay! The lake Atitlan is majestic with several volcanos to see in the background. The accommodation is simple, yet comfortable and unique, with pretty Mayan decoration. The bathroom is open to nature, I loved taking a shower and having trees peeking in, greeting me in the morning. There is a... More

This is my second year co-leading a retreat at Isla Verde and we are once again beyond satisfied with our entire experience. Riley, the owner, is phenomenal at what he does. Whenever we needed something solved, he was right there with a fix. In the past year, he has made some great changes to the property, including a stunning deck... More

This was my first visit to Guatemala and Lake Atitlan...Guatemala is impressive: the lake and its beauty...I loved Isla Verde for its warmth, simplicity, great food and wonderful people who worked there...it's not for everyone...as the incline of 'hiking' to one's room is steep if you are not in shape...it is also high above sea level...I was fine, but others...
