“Beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Only stayed one night but it was a very nice stay. Highlight was a traditional dinner in the restarant. The grounds are very well maintained and add a nice ambiance with candlelight all over the hotel at night. It was quite expensive to stay, eat and drink here. There are some very nice places in town that are worth walking to. Internet $10 in your room.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

we got a deal through expedia and hence selected this place. It's a 16th century monastery that has been restored/renovated and done really well. the premises are a fantastic museum and offer lot of things to see and walk around... museums, statues, crypts etc and the level of access available is also impressive
The rooms are really nice, they have a TV, very good mattresses and a seriously good shower.
The reason for the 3 (not 5) * - 3 fold - the internet is $8/day, with the daily rates being charged they should be including the internet... and secondly the front desk staff is quite useless, they are courteous and all but useless when you ask them questions about Antigua, things to do around Antigua etc. and finally the food (no free breakfast, we did order some room service though) - horrible and expensive.
The gym and the pool are really nice

Great accommodations and an incredible hotel, filled with history and art work. Great location in a wonderful destination. Antigua is a great destination by itself with many attractions and day trips that can be taken.

This hotel certainly is unusual in many respects. The ruins are worth the stay. Ambiance is a big appeal. Very pretty grounds. The foliage is beautiful. The room is average but nice. The only thing that was bad was the smell at night; sewage. There was also some difficulty with billing on room & services. Still not sure was charged correct. Get ready for a big tourist charge at c/o. Overall a very unique place. Also I might add, the rooms are very dimly lit.

We revisited casa santo domingo 3 weeks ago and found it was as delightful as we remembered it. We upgraded to one of the "estancea" rooms and it was much bigger than the room we had last time. It was room estancea los novisios. Novicios was a large suite with fireplace, sauna, and jacuzzi, and a wonderful view of the volcano. Everything was fine EXCEPT at night the resturant across the way had a very large spotlight aimed directly into our room, it was so bright we had to keep the blackout curtains closed. They used it to light up there parking lot. We asked several times during our 3 day stay to have it reaimed or removted but to no avail. Oher than that it was a delightful stay with great food and charm. The several museums on the grounds were very intereting, and at night the candels were very nice and were everywhere,creating a romantic feel of yesteryear. The hotel was built on the ruins of a very old monastery and the owners have kept the feel. There are wonderful pieces of art on the grounds and in some of the rooms. The many macaws also added to the ambiance. It is near downtown so a cab is not needed to access the main square and shopping.

Room Tip: check what is going on around the room you pick, ask about any renovation or construction going on a...

Amazing property. A favorite. You get to stay in a museum and among the relics and ruins. SO beautifully preserved. Fun to have a fire place in the room.
They have their own chocolate factory on site. Restaurant is lovely. Pool is fun. Parrots and gardens are a joy.
internet never worked.

pool is lovely. multiple choices for dining on site - maybe the best visual appeal of any hotel.

Watch for the noisey rooms near the street.

Room Tip: make sure you are not near the street - the cars make noise when they drive on the cobble stones

I would go back to Antigua just to stay in this hotel. I stayed in the deluxe room with 2 beds and highly enjoyed myself. I had way too much fun here. Fireplace is awesome, great view of volcano, great location. The site is gorgeous! Wasn't too impressed with the dining but food tastes in Guatemala are far different than America. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Antigua.
