We just returned from spending four nights at Hotel Uxlabil on Lake Atitlan. At first, I was a little concerned about the isolation of the property, but the next day we learned that it's a nice 10-minute walk to town. The quiet (except for the early morning buses which honk their horns LOUDLY) and private location made up for this. The food was amazing (huge and delicious breakfast included with room price). We ate dinner there every night, and were delighted with the price and quality.
The kayaks were not the best, but we had a blast paddling to San Pedro and across the lake.
Juan, Luca, Eva and Angela were FANTASTIC. They each made us feel like we were with family. Juan’s knowledge of birding and hiking allowed us to experience the natural beauty of the area. Luca and his constant smile and laughter always make me happy (he was also very strong and helpful with our bags!). Eva and Angela ran the hotel and prepared amazing food – they took care of all the details.
Would definitely stay here again. Best if you can speak some Spanish, as English is not widely spoken. Also, Wifi is not great...but it was nice to unplug for a few days.
