The hotel is situated on the small road leading (steeply) downhill to the pier of San Juan, Lake Atitlan. The rooms are large with ensuite toilet/shower. There is a shared verandah walkway outside the rooms with a view of the lake. Best views are from the roof of the building. Spectacular!
This hotel is what I would call a 2 star so don't expect nice bedding, breakfast, or super clean floors/shower. Just bring your flip flops for the shower, some snacks for breakfast, and be prepared not to see many tourists. Considering the large size of the rooms, it's location, and cheap price, it's a bargain.
In town, the community tourism and coop project is well worth a visit, as is stopping in to the Maximon shrine. We travelled to San Juan from San Pedro via a pick up truck shuttle service near the park. You can get to San Marcos via a chicken bus outside of the coop office. Both journeys cost just a few quetzals. (Don't listen to the locals who will tell you the only way to San Marcos on land is by taxi....)
