Excellent accommodations right on Lake Attitlan. Chalet-type lodgings-some with own terrace overlooking the lake. Beautiful grounds, quiet, on-site Mayan-type sauna. Stayed at Hostel San Marcos prior to arriving at Schumann-believe me, it's worth the extra money to stay here. The workers even brought us our morning coffee to our room. Extremely friendly atmosphere.

I had a wonderful week here in January this year. We had an upstairs room in the little cottages right by the lake. The room was comfortable with hot water shower, lovely beds and a safe. The staff are great, they brought us breakfast on our balcony every morning. There is a pretty garden with hammocks to laze the day... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as a family of 4 (2 small children). We were in a family room (triple room) as it was all they had left but it was great. Big enough to take us all plus 4 cases/back packs ... And leave room to play cricket on the odd occasion it rained! The room was clean,... More

I stayed at Posada Schumann in a private room for one night in February 2015. The staff was kind and helpful - especially a man who's name I do not recall - but often sat in the lounge area on his computer during my stay. The room was simple and clean. The hot water was a little confusing and seemed... More

I stayed a night here. The room was clean & comfortable. Didn't eat here but the breakfasts looked good. Drinks were reasonable. The deck was lovely. What a view! Very good value. Had trouble booking it. Was able to phone them direct and they reserved a couple of rooms. All we had to do was pay on arrival. A very... More

I have been staying at Posada Schumann for the last week and feel compelled to write a review of this wonderful time. I have felt like I am coming home each time I retuned to the room! So comfortable and with such a lovely host, Guillermo has done everything he can to make this a pleasant stay. The food in... More

Stayed at Schumann for just under a week and didn't want to leave. We were there in low season so got an incredible on a cabana right on the water, but the prices seem very reasonable at any time. We could lounge on chairs/hammocks on the edge of the lake with incredible views across the water to the adjacent volcanoes.... More

We looked into this hotel but were shocked by how poor the service was. The rooms were damp and cold, and the staff was not willing to let us even use the bathroom without any payment. Not at all recommended.

I've stayed here once with two friends visiting from the US, and had planned to return until I got sick and had to cancel last minute (as in the morning I was supposed to arrive). I am an expat living in Antigua, so I love to come to the lake and relax on random weekends. You see Posada Schumann right... More

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
