As I show pictures of La Fortuna to my family and friends, they are really impressed with how stunning the property is. I would stay here again. You are getting an excellent value as compared to other hotels on the lake. Plus the location is great.. It is a short boat ride from Pana. I recommend to pack lightly. I...

Hi Jaclyn - Thank you so much for reviewing us. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at La Fortuna and thank you for pointing out that the location is definitely not for everyone. There are many stairs to the petite bungalows - which affords them some nice views, but at the same time clients should realize that there...

Upon my arrival at La Fortuna , I was once again overwhelmed by the beauty of the lodge - the bungalows, the vegetation and the new construction that has taken place. A kitchen has been added, a hot tub, a second deck with chairs etc. to lounge by the water and the beginning construction of a new bungalow. It is...

I stayed here for 3 nights in June in petite bungalow 3. The bungalow itself was very private and comfortable. The bathroom was very cool with piping hot shower water. The only thing with the outdoor bathroom is that it is a bit cold to shower in the evening, but mornings and afternoons were fine. The meals were delicious and...

La Fortuna is really a hidden treasure and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The accommodations are excellent but what sets La Fortuna apart is the thoughtful and friendly hospitality. The private bungalows make for the perfect romantic getaway. Having breakfast on the patio overlooking Lake Atitilan is such a pleasant experience. Accessible only by boat, your arrival will feel...

From the moment I stepped off the boat and arrived at the gorgeous, magical property until the bittersweet moment I had to leave and return to the "real world," I never stopped smiling. The accommodations are first-class, the owners/hosts Steve and Kat are lovely people and the food was fresh and delicious. In a word ... paradise.
