Staff were friendly and helpful. The setting, especially the outdoor patio, is perfect. Food was fresh and presentation was attractive. Organic vegetables and salad greens are grown on site. All water on site is purified so there is little chance of tummy disorders.

We were celebrating a five year anniversary of our non-profit organization we were traveling wit, and decided that this would be the perfect place to do it. Were we right. We had all ages from 9-70, and everyone found food that they were happy with. I had a pasta dish, and even though it was very good, I found myself... More

So you are probably not going to Guatemala for the onion soup but if you go to Hotel Atitlan be sure to order it. Not too salty. Practically caramelized onions and delicious local cheese on top. I had the caprese salad and it was sandwich mozzarella not fresh and rather than balsamic vinegar glaze it was something like cranberry sauce.... More

The view is always spectacular, the breakfast..outstanding. Later in the day is somewhat "iffy" due to Mosquitos but nothing a little bug repellant won't take care of.

While vacationing at Lake Atitlan (Guatemalan Highlands), I couldn't pass up the chance to have lunch at Hotel Atitlan again. This interesting eclectic hotel is located a short distance from Panajachel on a small bay of the lake. Indulging in my favorite avocado preparation -- the curried chicken-stuffed half -- proved to be as good as it was the first... More

We wanted to have lunch at the restaurant after visiting the Reserva, and were informed by the person at the entrance that there was a Q55 fee (about $7) to enter the grounds, even just to eat at the restaurant. We did not want to tour the gardens, just have lunch, so continued on our way.

Hotel Atitlan's restaurant is probably the best choice in Panajachel. Even if you are not staying at the hotel it is a quick $2.50 tuc-tuc ride to the beautiful property along the lake. The restaurant is very colorful with table runners and bright colored plates. The food choices are varied and the opportunity to eat outdoors (under a canopy) is... More

We couldn't get a room at Hotel Atitlan, but we were glad we took a tuk tuk over to the restaurant. The restaurant was very eclectic in decoration and the view was amazing while the sun was still up. We stopped at the bar before dinner for a drink, and we were impressed by the drink choices. The service was...interesting.... More

This attractive restaurant is open to the general public, not just those staying at the hotel. We ate there for lunch when we visited the gardens. Each of us tried a different salad, and all were delicious. The restaurant itself is attractive, but even better was the view of the lake and volcano.

We stopped by just for breakfast with friends before touring the gardens and the lake. Breakfast was delicious and made just for us. There were many items to choose from on the menu. We had yogurt and fruit. A milk shake was also offered and was perfect for breakfast. At our table there was a variety of items ordered. All... More
