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

We stayed here for 3 nights and found San Marcos to be lovely and peaceful. Our room was lovely with loads of room and it was great to have our own bathroom. There are only 3 rooms but they are set in beautiful gardens. Terry the owner was very helpful, giving us recommendations and even showed us her beautiful house... More

We went to Posada del Bosque Encantado's restaurant for dinner because the atmosphere was very nice. The food was quite good but the service... horrible. When we arrived there was no one to welcome us or even pointing us a table. So we went to the kitchen window to ask if it's possible to eat and we were very rudely... More

I am the owner of the Posada del Bosque Encantado. Normally we do not serve dinner, only a very delicious breakfast. We were experimenting with a possible new chef and only served dinner twice. I am sorry for your disappointing experience with us. This chef is an excellent cook, but does not speak much spanish(from Denmark). He was not a... More

We stayed there unfortunately only for two nights. The big, clean and nice furnished rooms are directly in a lovely garden. Any room is supplied with free drinking water every day. The local staff and the ownerin are really nice and helpful! By the way, this hotel is only a few minutes walk away from the national park, Cerro Tzankujil.

My partner and I stayed in a private room with a bathroom which ended up being about $27 per night or so which is pretty consistent with any of the nicer hotels in San Marcos. We met the owner and she was very nice and introduced us and was very pleasant to talk to. Our room was cleaned everyday and... More

After a rigourous tour of Guatemala, we settled in at Posada del Bosque Encantado for a more leisurely few days. We truly enjoyed our stay and getting to know, owner, Terry. Though the rooms are humble, they are incredibly aesthetic (as well as spotless), as is everything about Posada. Excellent breakfasts are available with very warm and friendly service. If,... More

People at this hotel treat you very well. Has no view of the lake but it is on the way to the pier. The rooms are bigger than most hotels. It has a beautiful garden and Terry, the owner is a very nice person.

I knew nothing about Bosque Encantado or San Marcos when I booked this place, but me and my boyfriend were so lucky to stay here and got to know about this little town. Terry was very helpful and on time whenever I had concerns or questions even before my arrival via email. The place is absolutely charming and clean and... More

El Bosque Encantado is a very nice and peaceful place with a jungle look in San Marcos la Laguna. The owner, Terry, and her staff are very friendly. The rooms are spacious, the breakfasts very good. I recommend it!
