“Better the Second Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 for a stay in March 2013
1
person found this review helpful

This was our second stay at Casa la Colibri. This year was even better than last. The owner arranged several visits to local villages and took us on a hike above the property. The staff at the house are some of the most helpful people we have ever met on our travels. Breakfasts and dinners were outstanding. People ask why we went back to Guatemala.....because of this great place on Lago Atitlan.

“This Vacation Home will Spoil You to all Others.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

The owner was waiting for us upon arrival. He had sent a private transport to pick us up at the airport, so although we had never been to Guatemala, we didn't have to worry about anything. Throughout our trip, the staff arranged everything we could have wanted, including transportation by truck, tuk-tuk, and boat. The staff couldn't have been any more helpful and accommodating. The pictures don't do this house justice! The weather was perfect, the house was perfect, the views were more than perfect. We were greeted every day with a bell calling us to a wonderful breakfast. Each day, we would try to guess what kind of fresh squeezed juice were in the pitchers. After days of exploring, we would come home to freshly laundered clothing, a clean house, and unbelievable dinners, which were picture perfect. We could then, just sit back and enjoy the never-to-be-forgotten sunsets. We've stayed at other vacation rentals, but I'm afraid this has spoiled us, I don't know if we will even again reach this level of perfection.

“Better than a 5 star hotel!,,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This house is stunning. And the service outstanding. We has our meals cooked, at ver reasonable rate, and the meals were better than any good restaurant in the Northeast. Pictures this time actually do not show the incredible attention to detail, and service. Would definetly stay here again but next time for longer.

“La Casa Colibri”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

What an amazing place. This villa overlooks the lake and volcanoes and every moment presents another breath-taking view. We spent 2 weeks here and loved every minute. There is so much to do or you can just relax by the pool or check your email over a good wireless connection. The food was outstanding. Angela the cook is the best. Fresh juice, fruit, bread and great main dishes. We will return, often.

“I will be back!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

people found this review helpful

I fell in love with La Casa Colibri and I am already planning my next trip back. David the manager was on call 24-7 to answer any questions, recommend excursions, set up transportation and make sure all our needs were met. Angela the cook made you want to stay at the house and eat every meal there. The maid folded my dirty clothes if I left them out. I wanted to try everything there was to offer. The sauna, pool, ping-pong, the sunken bathtub in the master, hammocks, outdoor fireplace and of course the breathtaking views. Casa Colibri makes me feel like Royalty!!
