Great customer services, I enjoyed the spa/time, they have everything in the spa for you. Nice garden, good maintenance. Special mention to their response time for any kind of request (i.e light the chimney or extra slippers) ... they were just knocking the door few seconds after I just hang up.

I stayed in Porta Hotel Antigua July 2016. I stayed for a good week and the room and people were great! I had to give it a 3 rating and here's why. 1) NO SCREENS ON WINDOWS. The room gets stuffy so naturally we wanted fresh air. We were being eaten alive and was given a plug-in mosquito repellent which... More

A three day stay in Antigua, Guatemala was highlighted by our accommodations at the Porta Antigua. We had beautifully appointed air conditioned rooms with gardens outside our door, and close to the lap pool with a spectacular view of the volcano. The grounds around the main pool and restaurant were gorgeously lush and tropical with beautiful parrots in the foliage.... More

This hotel is fantastic. Service is the best. There are 3 buildings, one I know the rooms do not have A/C...it was not pleasant in the room when the sun was up. However, the charm of this hotel and the service outweigh any negative. My daughter and I traveled alone. She became ill, and needed to eat a restricted diet.... More

I stayed at this hotel recently and enjoyed my stay for the most part, but this hotel has gone down in status and quality since the 90's when it was one of the best hotels in Central America in my opinion. Formerly getting all the high end traffic in Antigua, that clientele now goes to the Case Santo Domingo that... More

Lovely hotel, an oasis in a beautiful colonial town, that's a quick walk to the center. Room was beautiful; toiletries great. The individual robes dusted with rose petals were a fabulous touch, as was the patio area.
