My brother and I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Terry, on our inflight to Guatemala. She gave us her business card and invited us to stay at her hotel since we had planned on staying at Lago Atitlan for 4-5 days. Sure enough, we stayed at her hotel for the last leg of our trip. The hotel is... More

I didn't stay here, I only had a coffee but loved the location. It was very prettily decorated with love to detail. The staff was really nice and the coffee great. You can find it when you're coming from the pier going up to the village.

We stopped here after getting off a boat from Pana in the search for breakfast. We loved it! The restaurant is tucked away and every table makes you really feel like you are in the rain forest. It was such a nice break from Pana with no noisy tuk tuks or vendors coming by your table. Just peace and quiet!... More

We were under the impression that there was a double bed in the loft area and another bed downstairs in the room (probably from Lonely Planet). The two beds are actually downstairs. There is a loft but ours just had some bare mattresses leaning up against the wall and broken glass in the windows. The beds were quite comfortable though.... More

We spent a very relaxing night here in February. The place was clean, quiet (thick adobe walls) and friendly. Oh, and very well priced! A great place from which to explore San Marcos. We enjoyed wandering through the garden, and lounging in the rancho with a morning cup of coffee was a pleasant start to the day.

It's a lovely posada, a bit pricey, but you get your money's worth. You wake up to the chirping and singing of birds, the skylight in the room guarantees you'll wake up early with the sun on your face. The room is lovely with comfortable beds. The showers have very weak pressure so forget about washing your hair... If you're... More

We stayed here only one night because it was a bit out of our price range, and we wanted to splurge after our terrible experience at our last place. Terry had ties to my hometown in the east (She lived many years in my home town's sister city) and she played us a lovely song on guitar before she left... More

We reserved this hotel locally, as we were already staying in various villages around Lake Atitlán. Made it clear we were looking for a quiet respite. the owner required a 50% deposit to her bank account even though we were already here, which in retrospect ought to have been a warning sign. When we arrived there was major construction happening... More

My group of 4 women stayed at Bosque Encantado for four days and it really was an enchanted visit! The small posada is set facing a quiet garden/forest, away from any traffic (not that there is much in San Marcos!), so we felt that we had not only our rooms but the porch and the garden to enjoy. The setting... More

This was my second stay at this lovely hotel. The Owner Terry and the staff ( her family ) are all really nice people to be around. They make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. If you are lucky and have the time you should go see Terry perform with her band they are really good musicians. The... More
