“Beautiful rooms and setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We were only here one night, and as my husband guessed, my daughter DID immediately say that she wished it was for two nights instead. We were picked up at the airport promptly. Rooms were lovely. My only gripe: when we arrived, I had no small bills for tips. Since we were in two different rooms, and we all had rolling luggage, and I didn't have money to tip, we asked to take our own bags up. The porter seemed disgusted by this, so he turned around and left with our bags still on the cart. Since he left the cart in the middle of the pathway, I had to push it out of the way, since I was standing behind it and couldn't move forward. Breakfast was fabulous, and all others in the staff were very nice.

First and foremost I've stayed here before and came back! Wonderful staff all around, great rooms, amazing beds. I traveled alone and they provide free shuttle transfer to & from airport. Wi-fi signal great throughout hotel. As a female traveling alone felt very safe walking thru property. They have amazing breakfast buffet, the menu for lunch & dinner is great. Beautiful grounds. I love this place one of the best hotels in the country! Highly recommended

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are great, I had one that faced the road and NEVER did I hear any traffic...

The rooms are perfect, nice and clean. The workers are friendly. Breakfast is perfect. There is a good sfeer in the hotel, you can feel yourself home. And there is good service in the hotel, but also drop and pick up at the airport.

My boyfriend and I were in Guatemala in April and we stayed two nights at the Vista Real. The hotel is gorgeous, the towels plush, the beds incredibly comfortable, the bathrooms with wonderful toiletries, marble all over. When we arrived which was already late at night, we told the guy who checked us in that we were going to be taking the shuttle the next morning at 4 a.m. to go to the airport. The hotel offers free transportation to the airport. I believe that the hotel staff should write down when people are going to use the transportation service. When we came downstairs probably at 4 a.m. sharp, the van had left already. They don't have a courtesy phone call to let you know that the shuttle is leaving. So we ended up taking a taxi. My boyfriend made sure to tell the staff person at the front desk that we were going to be coming back from Tikal at about 7 p.m. the next day and that please have the shuttle pick us up at the airport to take us back to Vista Real where we would stay a second night. No one picked us up. My boyfriend called them and asked to speak to a manager so that he could file a complaint. There was no manager. The hotel staff person said he would send a taxi for us. (So where was the transporation van they use?) The taxi took a while to arrive. My cousin who lives in Guatemala City had left a package for me at the hotel. I forgot to ask for the package when we arrived so I called the front desk from my hotel room. They said they didn't have a package. I told them my name and who it was from. I never heard back from them. I thought they would make an effort to check. . I would have expected a phone call from the front desk saying, "No mam, we haven't found anything." I had to go downstairs to the front desk and they said they didn't have any record of the package in their books. I asked them to please check their room where they keep the packages. Voila. There it was. They never had a record of the package though they keep a book where people have to sign when they claim what has been left behind for their guests. Basically, this beautiful hotel needs to train its staff on excellent customer service. I must say that the gentleman that took our suitcases to our room on our second night there, had an excellent demeanor. He explained some things about the room, wore gloves, etc.

I stayed for business but I wish I could have stay longer for fun and vacation. This is the perfect stay in every sense. The room was beautiful and bathtub amazing. Beautiful view, fantastic hotel. You feel like you are in an Arabic Palace!! The food is spectacular. The breakfast buffet and the coffee are superb. The staff is fantastic. Service was quick and very kind. I have nothing bad to say. On the Contrary it was the perfect stay for me.

Have stayed here 6 times over the past years and every time is fantastic! Service is outstanding, food is excellent and the atmosphere is 5 stars! They have a new "Business Floor" which have not tried but if it is offering better, and more, service, it will be amazing!

Room Tip: Not sure there are any poor rooms!
