My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in November and wish it could have been longer. The location is great, just a quick boat ride from Panajachel but still secluded. The bungalows let you feel immersed in the outdoors while still enjoying all sorts of luxuries (incredibly soft duvets, plush pillows, and cozy bathrobes!). The meals are fantastic, the hammock comfy, the garden bathrooms beautiful. There's no reason to leave...except that Kat and Steve (who are amazingly friendly and helpful) will come by with so many ideas about things to do around the lake that you'll have to go exploring - but you'll leave knowing you have a great place to come back to. Really, I'm not sure why you would stay anywhere else!
