“Great hotel / Bad food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

I stayed in October 2013 for a conference that I got invited to. The place is beautiful, surrounded by amazing nature, the building itself very nice. Rooms are beautiful, very comfortable beds. The place in general is very well maintained, staff super friendly.

However the restaurant is, in my opinion, bad for the prices. Plates are very expensive and the flavors in many times too salty, or overcooked. I only enjoyed the breakfast because they weren't actually cooked.

Stayed for 2 nights for a meeting which took place in the hotel. My room was on the 4th floor (business floor) facing the highway and I could hear some noise in the morning. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Also very clean and tidy. Breakfast was good. The staff was very welcoming and polite at all times. Only real problem for me (because I had a very short stay) was the hotel location. There is nothing to do in walking distance.

Beautiful grounds and vistas along first class service and food. Rooms may be the best I have ever stayed in







First class hotel, service and food and drink.
Beautiful rooms, hotel interior , pool and grounds with majestic vista of the city and the surrounding area volcanoes.
Every one spoke excellent English and were so helpful with recommendation of the area.
Rooms with bathrooms that had full glass and tile showers and whirlpool bath tubs.
Plenty of English speaking tv channels including channel 4 (CBS) Miami.
Can't wait to go back.
25 minutes from airport with traffic.

We only spent one night at this hotel the night before our flight home. It is some distance from the main part of the city, which in my opinion, is a good thing. Be aware that you won’t be able to walk anywhere from the hotel.

The hotel is very nice and the room was comfortable. One weird thing is they didn’t take our credit card on check-in so we were unable to charge anything to our room. I told the waiter at lunch that we hadn’t registered our credit card with the front desk and he seemed to understand but had my husband sign the check anyway. Then when we started to leave, he ran after us and made us produce a credit card. That was a trifle embarrassing and shouldn’t have happened.

The hotel has a very nice gym which is great because there isn’t a lot else to do.

This hotel is probably one of the better options in Guatemala City.

Stayed here for a business trip in March 2013.

The hotel is very beautiful, boasting great architecture and decorating. There's only 1 restaurant on the property, but it's pretty good. The bar is adequate, but I was the only customer they had the nights I was in town. I had a ground level room near the waterfall, which was wonderful. There is absolutely ZERO street/city noise in that area. The room is well appointed (as nice as one of the Ritz Carleton's) and extremely clean. This was the best sleep of my trip.

The location is a little off because it's located between major highways with no sidewalk, but this is Guatemala City..... You shouldn't be walking anyway, unless you have a death wish.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay at a room off the main hall. I was in the "pod", on the ground floor, near the water...

This was my first time in Guatemala City. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. The room was spacious and very tastefully decorated. We slept well in the comfortable bed with firm mattress, soft linens, and warm duvet. The service was excellent in the restaurant and front desk--everyone was friendly and accommodating. The hotel drivers were excellent and were able to get us to where we needed to be even though we did not speak the language. The breakfasts were wonderful with lots of options including an omelet station. I have never had refried black beans with breakfast, but they were very good! Very nice stay! Would stay here again.

We visited Guatemala in December 2012, we could not find our resort because we don't speak Spanish and there wasn't any clear signs of roads or highways. After few hours of driving around, we decided to go to a hotel to spend the night in order to resume our search the following day. We found this hotel, it looks very nice and safe, the staff speak English, the rooms are very well decorated and very clean, the hallway is lit with candles they have a water fall with a nice little pond full of colored fish. Their breakfast was so nice and the dining room is very elegant, their was a live pianist and a clown to entertain the kids. we loved this hotel and wished to spend the whole vacation there.
