Great place. Lovely rooms in lush gardens. Staff attentive and friendly. Breakfast very good. We stayed in a budget room, Cueva and it was perfect with a funky little bathroom. Wished we had longer to enjoy the ambience.

My family and I just got back from two nights at Aaculaax and it was not nearly enough. We loved the detail and thoughtfulness put into every inch. (I took over a hundred photos of the glass work, wood work, and flowers.) We woke up to the sounds of birds and fresh lake air and were greeted by volcanoes. The... More

We were there a week ago and it was surprisingly peaceful. In the morning we woke up to the sound of the birds, who acted like nature´s alarm clock. Our room was cozy and very special, it looked like a cove and we felt protected by the beautiful plants in front of our window. Highly recommended to all those who... More

These are amazingly comfortable rooms with extremely soft beds, hot hot showers, and depending on the room you get a verity of amenities. Ive stayed in Sonrise, Pescado, Luz and Alain. And have seen most of the rest. My favorite is Pescado although Sonrise has its upsides. Alain is quite a bit cheaper but doesn't have a kitchen inside the... More

We stayed first 3 days in San Juan in a homestay.. Since friends told us to visit San Marcos we took the boat and went of to San Marcos. We read the other reviews on tripadvisor that there were a couple of budget rooms at Aaculaax, beside the other rooms they rent out. We took the chance to go there... More

Landing on San marcos I was welcomed by a group of young touts who scurried me off to aaculaax, My room was spacious clean and full of quirky artefacts ,the bathroom was built into the rocks and all little extras were provided. The grounds were lush and tropical and a stones throw away from the mystical lake. The price was... More

The rooms here are all different and you should check the website when booking as there is a good range of prices available as well as some rooms with shared bathrooms for travellers on a budget. We booked an ensuite room, called "Alain" and were very impressed with the creativity and artistic flair that has been used in both the... More

I am sorry to be so delinquent in my review. Earlier today my husband and I were reminiscing about our stay in the Pescado room. It was private, we had a fantastic view, and our fireplace created an absolutely perfect atmosphere for a glass of wine and a rainstorm. We took full advantage of the open air kitchen, and prepared... More

My wife and I have stayed at Hotel Aaculaax on two recent trips to San Marcos. It is a unique inn, near the lake and built into a hillside, with some the most amazing rooms and suites we have stayed in. Each has some common design elements, like the stained glass windows and the clever integration with the surface of... More
