Casa Palopo is the most luxurious hotel on Lake Atitlan hands down. The most beautiful views I've ever seen up against Positano and Santorini!! The lake is just stunning from the villa infinity pool. Nothing like it. This hotel really puts Guatemala on the map! Just gorgeous. Incredible service!! Michelin star chef food and great drinks. The breakfast is so memorable and the ambiance for dinner is sultry. A hidden gem! I love this place and I haven't stopped talking about it since I left! I will return!

This was a gorgeous place to stay at Lake Atlitlan. Fabulous food and the best margaritas! Very lovely, accommodating staff. Our room was gorgeous and just wish we had more time to hang out on our patio. The only confusion was misinformation about available hikes and times, so check in directly with the hiking guide (Reggie, recommended by hotel, was excellent). Would definitely return here, and hope to do that.

We were very surprised to find a Relais & Chateau Hotel in Guatemala to say the least. Whoever built this hotel tried very hard and created a good, little charming hotel – This is for Guatemalan standards a very good hotel, but it cannot be compared with Relais & Chateau properties in Europe. First, location is totally uninteresting, the nearest village a real dump. Filthy, dilapidated and absolute ‘’NO GO’’, hence there is no reason to visit this hotel. Second, the usually excellent cuisine of a Relais & Chateau is missing. They try hard to offer a nice setting (best so far on our trip), with views over the lake and lots of candles burning during dinner time. Service was charming and excellent. Bud sadly, the chef cannot cook and the steak I had (Tenderloin on menu) must have come from an old buffalo. Third, the room was quaint, with a little terrace and a bathtub in the open air. However, there is nowhere to sit inside the room except on the bed, no space to put anything down. Worst, there is no air-conditioning, nor screening against insects. We had to sleep behind heavy curtains in a stuffy room with no fresh air, as even lace curtains are missing. Last, this hotel is not located on the lake but above the lake, above the road circling the lake and thus one can hear traffic passing by in the rooms. We do not see any reason for visiting Lake Atitlan as the villages are neither quaint, nor colorful, nor interesting – but very poor, dirty and definitely not uplifting to see.
