Staying at "Porta" is quite unique and cozy. Once you get past the condition of the roads (compact stone roads) which makes for a bumpy ride and uncomfortable walking, the hotel is very much worth the trip. The typical cuisine served is superb (dessert is "ok" as well), the staff is very helpful, the rooms are a bit rustic but it adds to the ambiance of the "ole timey feel" of the hotel, most of the channels are in Spanish but several are in English, some equipment such as irons and remotes may not work at times but are readily and easily replaced by staff, wifi is open but in certain areas the signal is not as strong because of the winds, the grounds are well kept and the pool is very nice (would recommend checking the weather before planning a trip to Guatemala because very cold months are obviously not the best time to go swimming).
Side Note: For individuals who like glass windows in their rooms, some rooms do not have them installed but they are instead made of wood so its best to ask about these types of preferences prior to staying.
Side Side Note: The walls in my room were are a bit thin for my liking allowing me to hear the guest next to my room taking showers but i'm not sure there is much that can be done to address the issue at the moment. Other than the 5'O clock wake up by my neighbor, my stay was amazing.
