“Much better than the hotel these surround. . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

These gardens are just lovely, the consequence of the fertile grounds of a former coffee plantation and Guatemala's benign climate. The hotel charges non-overnight guests 55Q each to view the garden, but this is still a better alternative to staying at the hotel, which is essentially a motel with Taco Bell roofs.

“Diversity full of bloom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I was simply amazed and how manicured this botanical garden was and that all plants were in full bloom. This is attributed to the climate here which allows this garden to thrive year around.

manicured, colorful, a pleasure to walk in and to view. So gorgeous in the setting with the lake and volcanoes in the distance.

“Incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I stayed at this hotel and the grounds are amazing!! Wander around and see the wildlife and beautiful gardens. While sitting on my patio of my room I bet I saw 8 hummingbirds all at one plant at the same time. See these gardens!

“Beautiful spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Some of the most beautiful gardens anywhere! Not sure I would pay to visit, so best to stay at the hotel or eat a meal.
