“Beautiful place, amazing views, friendly and helpful staff! Favorite place we stayed on Lake Atitlan.”
Worth every recommendation that we had received, this place was amazing! Earlier in the year I was on a business trip and started talking to a women on the plane who had traveled all over the world. I had told her that I was possibly going to Guatemala and she was so excited to tell me about this wonderful place she had stayed in the small village of Jaibalito. It was La Casa Del Mundo. It sounded like a magical place and that is just what it is.
Upon arrival on a taxi boat at the private dock of La Casa Del Mundo, we were immediately greeted by staff and asked if we needed help with our luggage and everyone from start to finish went out of their way to make you feel at home.
The hotel sits on a cliff right on Lake Atitlan. We traveled to many of the little villages along the lake but this place seemed to have the cleanest, most beautiful spot on the lake for swimming, relaxing, and just checking out all the beautiful plants and vegetation around the property. There are so many little nooks you find with chairs and tables when wondering throughout the property.
The rooms are very clean and well decorated. We stayed in one of the suites and had our own private balcony with a view of the lake and volcano. There were windows circling the whole room so whether you wanted a view, a breeze, or some sunlight you got it!!!
One of our favorite things about the place was the communal dinner at night. For a relatively low cost you can sign up for the dinner at night. They set a candlelit dinner with all of the tables pushed together and serve a 4 course meal that was delicious. This was such a wonderful way to meat all of the other travelers and talk about our journeys. We ended up meeting a family and playing boardgames (which are also provided at the hotel) after dinner for a few hours.
Anyway, I highly recommend this place for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lake Atitlan. Whether you want to sit on your balcony with a bottle of wine, refresh with a swim in the lake, or read a book in pure serenity then this is the perfect place.
We stayed in room 13 and it was amazing!
