“A special part of heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Visiting the Land of Eternal Springtime is special in and of itself but to stay at the San Gregorio just makes it that much better. The breakfast was to die for, the rooms spotless, the spa so relaxing, and the location a glimpse of paradise. Hilda, the owner, is a very gracious hostess overseeing every detail to ensure perfection. Moreover, she and Lily on the front desk speak flawless English and are responsive to the needs of each guest on an individual basis. The location is very tranquil and picturesque with tropical birds waking you in the morning as you breathe in the fresh and invigorating air. If every hotel was like the San Gregorio, I would travel constantly. As it is, I've traveled to over 50 countries and this hotel is at the top of the list as to the places I've stayed.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room at the San Gregorio.

Just returned from a visit to Guatemala where we booked the entire San Gregorio Hotel with a large group in December 2012. Sra. Hilda and all of her staff were so friendly, and accommodating to our group's needs, including personalizing our meal service. What a beautiful retreat just outside of the City, and the views are spectacular. The rooms are also gorgeous. Highly recommend this hotel!

This wonderful spot provides a respite from the hustle of Guatemala City. Air is clean and crisp, view of the lake --- beautiful, Hilda and her staff could not have been more welcoming and accomodating with my travel delays. Transportation situation was made easy getting to and from the hotel. Even had a terrific massage to work out the travellers kinks. Architecturally fascinating property. Highly recommend the San Gregorio!

Without a doubt the place is beautiful. Very cozy rooms, amazinfg view of Amatitlan, clean facilities, relaxing spa area, overall its great.

I enjoyed breakfast and the staff in the restaurant was nice! However I thought dinner was expensive for what it represented, and the SPA was not what I expected. It was not a great massage, which is bad since that would have made my stay perfect!
