“Go to Lake Atitlan so that you can stay here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I got to brush my teeth on a balcony framed by flowery, exotic vines, overlooking the lake and surrounding volcanoes. Eating dinner there is a delicious, homemade 4 course dinner. The staff are so kind, polite, personable and professional.

It took a little effort to get to the hotel after we got off the bus. Like most hotels in the area, there is no elevator and you have to walk uphill, downhill, and stairs to get to the hotel. However, the surrounding was so beautiful, tranquil and calming that I didn't mind the walk at all. The room was simple but clean. The days I spent there were one of the few that I truly felt that I got the rejuvenation I needed from vacations. Highly recommended.

I have had the peasure of beeing in Vulcano Lodge several times, and it is the best place for relaxing, eating, visiting the villages around the village, and having a reallly good time. It is a good place to spend time for couples, families, groups, or alone if you want to relax a bit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are exellent!

We had a great time at the VL - it is off the path of some of the craziness of Atitlan and is immensely relaxing. The highlight is the family style dinner - where we met all sorts of nice and interesting people. Terje, the owner, is kind and generous. If we had one small complaint it is that the included breakfast is a bit small (we were traveling with 6 foot 3 twins!!). But the dinner made up it. We would definitely stay again.

Terje was a very welcoming host and he always made sure everything was okay. It felt nice to come back to such a beautiful and peaceful place as the Vulcano Lodge after a day of adventure. Food was delicious and healthy and sharing dinner with different guests every night was a great experience. I particularly enjoyed being in the hammock (that each room has) and listening to the birds sing. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was tremendous.
Thank you!

Had a wonderful stay. The host could not have been any more welcoming and helpful. Great rooms. Absolutely amazing dinners for a super reasonable price. Gorgeous cactus gardens. Very reasonable room rates. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a welcoming and peaceful little paradise away from it all in a genuine Guatemalan environment. Thank you Terge!!!

My nine-year-old son and I stayed at Vulcano Lodge in late 2011. Terje, the owner, looked after us splendidly, taking great care over the delicious food he made for us. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with enough space. The gardens, which have taken 18 years to plant and perfect, are a delight. It's wonderful to come to this quiet corner of Atitlan after the tourist buzz of larger places. Good to hear, too, of the involvement of Terje in community projects based in teh local village. Easily one of our favourite places in Guatemala.
