When we arrived (with a reservation), nobody seems to be there. Finally a man popped up and it turned out he was the husband of the owner. But he was not used to receive guests... So it was not a warm welcome. But the rooms were very comfortable with a great view across the lake for a reasonable price!!! Lot... More

One of the best places to stay in the Lake, chilled, beautiful view, amazing and friendly staff and I can honestly say this is a jewel! Also, you can get any tuc tuc drivers phone to drive you to and back to san pedro if you want to party out but don't wanna stay in a Party hostel. Definitely worth... More

I lived on the lake for 1 year so knew this place existed. But when we got there it was breathtaking! We got the top apartment that had a full kitchen which is great if you plan to stay more than a few days. A huge wrap around deck. Ceiling to floor windows in the bedroom. If you want to... More

We found this lovely spot after deciding to leave the hustle and bustle of San Pedro. It is absolutely gorgeous and secluded. It was a wonderful way to enjoy the lake with stunning views of lakes and mountains. It's a quick walk into town to San Juan. We loved spending time in San Juan - a quiet town that feels... More

We stayed in an apartment which was huge with fantastic wrap around deck. We found it very relaxing and a great place to sit out on the deck and take in the lake views. Owners left us to our own devices but were on hand if needed. We had a fridge and full cooking facilities so it was very nice... More

We stayed here for a single night but wish it could have been a lot longer! The views from the cabin are undoubtedly the best in town, with a perfect view over the lake and Indians Nose. The cabin itself was huge with panoramic windows so you could even kick back and relax inside if you preferred. We stayed at... More

We stayed here for two nights. It was great. You should stay here too. The bungalow: - three beds (!) - large private deck - full kitchen - living room-like space - hot water shower - roof-top sitting area (sort of - accessed off the main path) - very private and spacious - gorgeous views - very clean Extras: -...

For people who are used to or interested in an Eco lodge this hotel is my pick in Guatemala. I have stayed with them repeatedly, and I'll continue to do so because the quality and privacy of their property allows me to sleep, relax and always see new animals or birds. They have very nice rooms that are close to... More

Hotel Chi-ya ticked all the boxes and more for our stay. It MADE our stay.

Hotel Chi-ya is an interesting little hotel just out side of San Pedro heading to the Village of San Juan. You can easily walk to the hotel from either village. This is not a hotel as most would be used to. The property has 7 or 8 rooms and small cottages. You are however on the side of a cliff... More
