Lakeside on a calm and relaxing bay. Great views and so peaceful to watch the men fishing in the bay. Rooms are really big, clean and cozy with a cottage-y feel. All staff is incredibly friendly, caring and all have great stories to tell. It is just a 2 minute walk to the center of the town of San Juan, a wonderfully clean and quaint town with almost no tourists. This is not the place to go if you want to party, because San Pedro and other main tourist towns are at least a 10 minute taxi drive away. This is a place to come and relax and enjoy peace and quiet on the Lake.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floors have a better view.

Stunning views over the lake towards the volcanos and terrific gardens with many English flowers provide a wonderful backdrop. Rooms are very pleasant but make sure you get a clear view of the lake - obliging staff were happy to help with this.
The restaurent was cheaper and better than we anticipated.
The nature reserve next door was great fun and takes between 1-2 hours. Lovely butterflies too.
Beware of the coffee flies. Bites really nasty - much worse than mosquitos - caught us unawares.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a clear view of lake. We had 305, it was great

We've stayed at some beautiful hotels around the world but the entire wall of our room was the lake and volcano view. It was every picture of Lake Atitlan. 4 rooms have this completely unobstructed view - 214,215,314, & 315.
The hotel is first class. Excellent service, very good restaurant, clean spacious rooms. The road to the hotel was built to stop invading tanks I think. Awful.
There have been complaints about the 55Q fee to just walk around the gardens. I won't comment on the rightness or wrongness of this but these are EXTENSIVE gardens. We spent hours discovering new hidden gems and a wide collection of birds. Don't miss the massive vegetable garden. It is a sight to behold.
We've been to Panajachel several times so skipped it, except for the used clothing market at the firehouse where true bargains are to be had, and ate dinner at the hotel. After a day of visiting the towns around the lake it was a relaxing pleasure. Breakfast on the outdoor patio also should not be missed.
Finally sitting in their hot tub on the edge of the lake was worth the room cost right there.

Room Tip: Check the room and try for the best view you can. Third floor for sure.

I should have written this review years ago. My wife and I have been bringing groups of university students to Guatemala for a month-long Study Abroad summer session for five years now, and each year have spent a week or so at the Uxlabil. All in all, it is our favorite hotel in all Guatemala. The entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the view is magnificent and the food is first rate. San Juan is an extremely clean and friendly little town and while the hotel is a ten-minute walk from its center, it is very safe and pleasant, even at night. Don Francisco, the owner, has become a good friend, as have all the staff, and we always look forward to this part of our month in Guatemala. Our students love it also.

Room Tip: All three levels have great views of the lake and the volcanoes. The third floor IS better, but only marginally.

We had a wonderful couple of days here. Gaspar gave us an interesting tour of San Juan and Melina cooked us some nice meals. The hotel is a 10 minute walk along an unlit path to the town center, so we didn't want to walk it at night, but dinner was available at the hotel.

The room was comfortable and the view from the balcony over the lake in the morning was outstanding. The coffee tour was worthwhile and the local artists produce very nice paintings. We caught the bus from here to Quetzaltenango direct, without having to go back across the lake to Panachel.

Room Tip: The top floor has the best view of the lake.
