Everything was so amazing! The house is beautifully done, comfortable and with plenty of space for our girls only vacation. The breakfasts and dinners were delicious and the entire staff friendly. Having David to assist with our transfers and to set up excursions was most helpful. The small town of Santa Catarina is close and the local people were great.... More

David's place is exactly what our group of ten needed. The rooms were clean and we loved the little special touches like fresh flowers in the living room, entrance and other places. Lucas did an excellent job of managing the day to day needs. Angela and her kitchen staff cooked excellent meals. It was something to look forward after our... More

Wow. 1st time at Atitlan and the location/staff/accomodations were perfectly matched to all of our needs.. Management booked all of our ancillary needs(massage, transportation, meals). Had exceptional meals in-house. Sunrise and sunset viewing were sublime. highly recommended from a 24 year Hotelier!!!

Having just returned from a glorious 10 days at La Casa Colibri, I have to say it was a cut above. Not only is the villa comfortable & charming, but the service was great. The house staff had everything covered, from the first cup of coffee in the AM to the last bight of dessert in the PM. Lucas, Carmen... More

If you're looking for a place to stay near Panajachel, look no further. We stayed there for 4 days and nothing could have been better. The staff attended our every need and couldn't have been more attentive. The house is clean, functional and WE NEVER RAN OUT OF HOT WATER! I've traveled extensively through Central America and I would rank... More
