The Meson Panza Verde is officially my favourite hotel in the world.
We stayed there with my parents (who were returning for the 4th time) for Christmas '06 and had a fantastic stay.
The staff were attentive and helpful (thank you Lucy, Ingrid and Blanca), breakfast is plentiful and delicious and the rooms are gorgeous. My parents stayed in Room 8 which is stunning - huge bed, big fireplace, private courtyard, enormous bathroom with a mosaic tiled bath - we were in Room 3 which is smaller but has a courtyard area at the back and opens onto the main courtyard.
The gardens are luscious and the roof gardens, with views of Agua and Fuego volcanoes, are magical. And the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon.
The restaurant's head chef is from Switzerland but had been in Antigua for 10 years and had travelled the world so he comes up with delicious international flavours and I highly recommend eating there. The only odd note was the curry flavouring on the Christmas Day turkey. There's also a decent wine list - quite hard to find in Guatemala.
I can't wait to go back and highly recommend staying here!
