Hotel is located in a small village near to Panajachel and on the shore of lake Atitlan. Perfect location for calm and private vacation. Nice pool, good restaurant with beautiful views of volcanoes. Room with balcony was great and spacious. Loved our stay there!

This hotel is located in the center of the little town Santa Catarina Palopó, the main street (where there are only handcraft sales) is just outside the hotel. There is nothing to do in the town, it is only a quiet and very traditional place, so stay in the hotel and have the awesome view to the lake and the... More

Nice hotel, a minute walking from the pier of Santa Catarina - 10 min car-drive to Panajachel, great views from the room terrace, quiet swimming pool. Full stop. Quite poor breakfast, very simple rooms, and the bathroom needs refurbishment. It's OK for a one-night stay, but don't expect too much out of the pictures.

The first impression was great, awesome view of Lake Atitlan, beautiful garden with a nice pool... but as soon as we got to the reception area we were not that impressed. The rooms are very very basic, the... More

We were lucky to get a corner room, so lots of light coming in. The room faced Lake Atitlan and the pool. We could usually get the wifi because of the location of our room, unless there were lots of people trying to use it at the same time. Just out the gate, there were vendors and the town was... More

The hotel room was small but very clean. The bathroom was also clean and it was like new. The hotel grounds are full of flowers and exotic plants. There are two pools. One pool is for swimming and the other is for relaxing in very warm water. The dinner menu had a nice selection of food. The waiters were helpful... More

I visited this property with my family, so we rented 2 double rooms for one night.. It is a basic hotel, rooms are really simple (bed, night table, tiny old fashioned tv, normal bathroom, some racks to place your clothing). The service is good, they make sure you´re having a good time and have everything you need. The restaurant is... More
