Our family loved this hotel very much. The views are spectacular. The rooms were spacious and clean and we enjoyed not having a TV or telephone. The kids especially enjoyed the bunk beds. The restaurant was great. All of the food was fresh and delicious. The service was fantastic. This hotel is in a perfect location. We can't wait to return and stay longer. Just take your time on the climb and enjoy the view.....it's well worth it!

As we all know from real estate it's Location, Location, Location and Lomas de Tzununa certainly has an amazingly gorgeous view high above Lake Atitilan. Sadly, the location and stunning view is about all this place has going for it. The rooms are spartan in decor and ambiance and they have absolutely none of the amenities that you'd expect to find in a hotel. The restaurant has a rather limited menu that does not seem to ever change.

This hotel must have the best views of not one but three volcanos. The hotel and restaurant has everything you need to have a good relaxing time in the middle fo God's creation. The views will take your breath away. Thiery is an amazing person. Pays attention to detail and looks for ways to make your stay as comfortable as can be. And the staff is as kind and courteous as he is. If you are traveling to Lake Atitlan this is the best place to stay!

This hotel has the greatest views of the lake ,but you should be ready to pay a price for it. For us it was not the good place if you had only 2-3 days . Hotel is 20 minutes boat ride from Pana which is the center city and main location there is not way to get by land from Pana - only by boat . So, you take the public boat you will be pushed into A very small boat with crowded locals carrying all their staff and if lake is not calm as it happened very often than expect all your staff to get wet as it happened to us. Our suitcase was soaking wet from the waives that came in the boat. If it rains as it happened to us the day after , and you are at the front of the boat be ready again to get totaly wet as boat is very partly covered . After such an experience we only used a private boat which cost us a lot of money ( about 20$ per each ride compared to 3 $ on the public one.
Than when you reach the pier be ready to clime 350 steps(the hotel staff will carry the bags for you). For us it was a good exercise but I know it's not for all.
There is another option to get down at the village and call the hotel to pick you up which they charge for it a small fee. ( I think charging for such a service is not wise and should be offered as a service)
The rooms are big but no TV or phone in the room so if you need anything from the hotel staff you have to call by mobile or clime again more stairs from our room it was another 70 stairs to the reception and dining room. Amenities in the room are very poor and there was not even shampo in the room.
Be ready that after 17:00 there is no services of boats so you are to stay at the hotel and you can Only have dinner in hotel.
The food is good and owner Tierry is a very nice Belgium guy who is taking care of the guests and even plays in guitar at the evening dinner.
The service of all staff was very good and people are very nice.
So if you want just to relax in the hotel with beautiful views that's a good place.

My family and I stayed two nights at Lomas de Tzunua while we explored Lake Atitlan. We enjoyed it immensely! You will not find a better view of the lake ANYWHERE!!!

A couple things that might be helpful: as the website says, have the boat drop you at the Lomas dock (unless you want to walk with your luggage 20 minutes through town, where no one speaks English to direct you), and then use the service phone to call up to have the staff help you with your bags. It's a LOT of stairs, but it's mainly in the shade, so take your time and take breaks. What's the rush?!? As my wife said, "I would have climbed 3x as many for this view!" If you have health issues or are elderly, this would likely be prohibitive.

The rooms are large, the water is hot and plentiful, and the views are out of this world!

The pool is clean and very cold. Perfect for an afternoon dip.

The staff are VERY sweet and kind. They are indigenous Mayans and speak Spanish fluently as their second language. We spoke only a little Spanish, so communication was a little bit of an issue, but for us it made it even more of an adventure getting outside of our comfort zones.

The food at the restaurant was delicious at every meal. Yum!!!

The owner, Theiry, who is Belgian, speaks several languages fluently, and is around the hotel in the morning and evenings, so if there is anything you need, you can ask him and he can convey it to the staff. He is a wonderful musician who often plays his guitar while you eat your meals. He and his wife have done many wonderful things for the surrounding community (built a library, teaching music lessons, etc.), so it's great to help support all they are doing as well.

It is quiet, which is what my family and I wanted, so if you are looking for hippie night-life and partying, don't come here looking for it. Go to San Pedro instead. If you want a quiet, beautiful place to relax, with amazing views of Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes, friendly staff, and don't mind a little bit of a climb, you can't do better than Lomas.

Room Tip: San Catarina has the best view, imho.
