The most beautiful destination wedding I have been to. Nicest hotel in Panajachel. Very pricey for Guatemala. Margaritas over $10.00 each. Bar bill can creep up on you before you know it.

Years of garden design have gone into the Hotel Atitlan Gardens. Topiaries, parrots, archways, secret fountains and more will thrill you!

The grounds at Hotel Atitlan are absolutely fantastic. The view of Toliman and San Pedro volcanoes is stunning. We were surprised to find out that room service was not available unless you are in a suite. Also, you cannot charge anything in the gift shop...More

The gardens are magnificent but the hotel is more expensive than most on Lake Atitlan. It's really worth it to stop by for a meal at their beautiful patio restaurant and see the spectacular gardens. Go before 5pm so you can see the birds.

Even if you don't stay at the Hotel visiting the gardens is worthwhile. The property is incredible with different types of roses, succulents, other tropical plants and lots of hummingbirds. You can see why it is so popular with weddings. (There was one before we...More
