Pretty hotel on the edge of Lake Atitlan. Worth asking for a room on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the lake. Very comfortable beds. We had good meals in the restaurant. The housekeeping was a bit haphazard with confusion over towels and no shampoo etc.

You have to really want to find this place. It's just about 10-15 minutes up a windy road outside of Panajachel. The only sign is a small arrow on a wall that points you down a narrow road (more like an alley really) lined with Mayan women selling their wares. But once you find it, you will be amazed. Gorgeous... More

Rooms were simple and clean, with very comfy beds and great showers but the lighting was very poor and the Wifi only works in the main reception or in bedrooms close to it - but that's the only negative. Nice staff, great food, and a really lovely sunken bar area with an open fire. We enjoyed the Christmas decorations and... More

We stayed one night at the hotel. Our room had a balcony. Regular pool and the heated pool were very relaxing. The beds are wide and clean. Not the most comfortable beds but we had a good night sleep. Food at the restaurant was great. We had soup and salad for dinner. Would stay again.

This hotel is nice - it's clean and quiet and has some great views. The pool area is awesome. The restaurant service can be very slow, however. And it can take time (and money) to get a ride into Panajachel. There isn't much else in Santa Catarina to do.

My mom and sister in law ate the tuna salad and got very sick and end up in the hospital and I was bitten by a brown recluse ( a very dangerous spider) after grabbing the towels. I was 5 days in the hospital and my vacations were ruined.

This is a hotel of contradictions. First, the lake. Driving down the hillside towards Panajachel, the view over Lake Atitlan is enchanting. The lake is beautiful, the volcanoes rising from the waters. You think 'idyllic setting for a lakeside hotel'. Driving first through the town of Panajachel, however, it's clear that the pace of development has been driven by commerce,... More

It has a very nice feel to it. The garden, the views, the decor, everything is beautiful. The restaurant service is very good and the bathrooms are very clean. Sadly I just went to have lunch, so I can't say anything about the rooms. But the whole time I was there I felt at peace.

Enjoyed three nights here. The rooms are fairly simple but all have good bathrooms, comfy beds and a quiet. Mine was on the second floor and at the end of the corridor and it had a wonderful, huge terrace with a view over the lake and the volcanos. Evening food was good and breakfast was far better than at other... More
