Our Medical Team consisting of 17 volunteers, chose this resort on beautiful Lake Atitlan for some R & R after an intense week of humanitarian relief clinics in the highlands region of NW Guatemala. The view of the Lake & volcanoes in the background was breathtaking! Try lunch or an early evening meal on the "upper deck" above the pool for the most spectacular views! Also, the hotel is located at the end of a busy market street with lots of merchants that are ready to haggle and make you a deal on anything from "jade to junk!" The property is protected by hotel security to keep unsolicited vendors from approaching their guests. Wireless internet works best within 20 yards of the office...any further than that from the router, the reception becomes sketchy! The food was good and so was the coffee and soft drinks (try the limon o naranja con soda). They also use filtered water, and are pleased to refill your personal water bottle from the filtration unit behind the bar. (HINT: Don't drink the water from the tap in your room, or brush your teeth using the water--USE BOTTLED WATER ONLY!) The beds were comfortable and the outdoor hammocks were great for afternoon naps! Well-kept grounds with gorgeous flowering bushes and trees added to the beauty and respite nature of this hotel. We will definitely return to this oasis for rest once again on our next trip to Guatemala!
