When I was in the Peace Corps in Guatemala, I dreamed of staying at the Posada. Twenty years later, I did, and it lived up to all my fantasies of heaven on Lake Atitlan. Lake Atitlan is a very special place for me, and the Posada is a very special place to stay. Traveling alone, I stayed in one of the Orchidea rooms, which was delightful with lots of hot water (solar heated), comfy bed, outside hammock on beautiful garden. Great gardens. The cottages are for another dream fulfillment! The food in the restaurant is delicious, fresh, gourmet dishes, excellent coffee, full bar. There is no better view than from the bar/pool area on the lake edge, watching the light changes. David, the owner, is gracious and the staff helpful, efficient, friendly. I'll shall return!
