I came to Isla Verde as my first stop on a month long trip in Central America. I immediately felt at home here, everyone was so kind and took such good care of me after my long journey from Sydney. The set up is beautiful, a cafe right on the lake, a common area overlooking the volcano with hammocks, pillows... More

We visited July 2014. This place was wonderful. It's paradise on earth. It's not luxurious, which we love. It was a bit on the raw side. Very simple. The staff and owner were wonderful and helpful. The food was spectacular. Breakfast was delicious. The room and view of the lake and surrounding volcanos was exceptional. The price was amazing. We... More

We actually visited this place in 2006, I can't wait to go back this year. Then we stayed here only because we were poor newlyweds. But this time it's because we look forward to the serenity of it! Avoid suitcases if you can since there are many stairs but if not the staff does help you.

I was travelling through Guatemala and I was interested in visiting Lake Atitlan. A friend told me about Islaverde. I was not disappointed. Nestled in the hillside amongst avocado, banana, and palm trees, amidst myriad herbs, flowers and fruit plants, this is a magical place. The property is immaculately groomed, maintained and loved. The staff, noticibly happy and lovingly involved... More

Love the hotel, the food, the rooms, the people, the views, the hikes, hammicks & yoga space. A better swim spot & a hot water booster for the solar showers would make this a 5+.

Really a neat place and the food in their restaurant is absolutely fantastic. Excellent facility! Staff is great and Lake Atitlan is a "must see." You get around by boat so plan your time well, Visit the Women's Textile Cooperative in the San Juan community.

Stayed at Isla Verde in November 2014 for a week and loved it so much I returned for my final week of a 4 month Central American trip. Without a doubt Santa Cruz is the pick of the villages at Lake Atitlan, quiet, tranquil, not overrun by tourists and friendly locals and only accessible by boat makes for a perfect... More
