This hotel is like a siren's song, luring you in with it's lake front beauty. Don't fall for it. The service, or lack thereof, will make you wish you never set eyes on the place. I wrote a very detailed email to the owner, Julie, and gave her two weeks to respond to my concerns. No response! So I'm posting... More

I really like this place. The rooms are super cute though full of bugs which is not a big deal for me. The woman in-charge "Norma" likes to sit a watch Telenovelas all day. Don't think of asking for service while her show is on. I saw her discouraged people from getting food as it would take " too long... More

I stayed here one night when I was in SM for an event and when I could not find another spot in town. I won't make that mistake again. The staff is truly rude. I'm generally an easy traveler and get on well with just about anyone. In 3 months on the lake this is the first time I had... More

The first time we stayed at the hotel (in 2011) we absolutely loved it! We had a really nice room (the one next to the reception) with private bath and a sitting area outside. The best part was the price though - really affordable. We came back in January 2014 and hated it! The hotel was packed so the only... More

I was staying in this hotel for twenty days and paid 2240 quetzals for it (about 300 dollars) - they never gave me any receipt - so you can very well imagine how it works. The rooms are ok but indeed there are some bugs. My room was with balcony but it felt like the balcomy can fall down any... More

This place came highly recommended to me, and I must say that I was disappointed. The room was OK (though the walls were not sealed - so bugs got in), the bed was comfortable, it had a partial view of the lake, the bathroom was down the stairs and around the back (good thing it didn't rain or I'd have...

This is the best value room that I stayed in San Marcos after I have stayed and visited a few hotels and hostels in San Marcos. The room is clean and of good size. I have a little terrace outside my room with 2 chairs and a lemon tree. I can sit there enjoying the nice view of the lake... More

I don't recall the name of the lady that was running the hotel at the time I stayed there for 2 nights, but her hospitality really was outstanding. The place itself is beautiful, with a minimum staff but keeping everything where it's supposed to be to make out of your stay a very good gettaway from the regular routine. The... More

I really enjoyed staying here. I was in San Marcos for 5 days and would book there again. I thought it was very clean, well put together, great porch to look over the lake, and was private. The cons are there is no internet or free breakfast, depending on the room you are in. The pluses are, they are the... More
