“The hotel is really far away from the parque central”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

The hotel offers a shuttle service not every hour but a few enough. Plenty of parking. The swimming pool was nice and warm the one with the slide can be a lot of fun for the kids they play music the kind you expect at a classic guatemala bar. They have live marimba for lunch buffet now the food is horrible! I think the price you pay is probably the fact they have two big pools but this hotel is lacking on the charm of the city. If you really want a colonial and very peaceful experience then I wouldn't recommend the hotel if you have kiddos and they need a pool to.release energy and cool off then this hotel is for you.

I just returned from a week-long stay at Soleil. The entire staff worked exceptionally hard to accommodate all requests. This was a timeshare exchange ( for my Disney Vacation Club). While not on a par with Disney properties, the unit was well furnished with kitchenette (stove top, frig, cookware, microwave), a large living room, bedroom and bath. Twice, however, there was no hot water for showers. No potable water, but for $5, a large 5 gallon water dispenser was provided that lasted two people the entire week. The Thai spa was quiet and attractive with expert personnel. A buffet breakfast was good, but the same each day. We ate one dinner which was very good in the main restaurant. Bath and bed linens were a little worn, but clean. The landscaped grounds were beautiful, tennis courts and pools clean and well-cared for.
It was very easy to make dily plans for tours through Ericka, the Venta Acova Agency manager who has an office on site. She was easily accessible by email prior to the trip as well. I would recommend this hotel.

we stayed at this hotel as part of a time share swap. The hotel is nice with a lot of amenities. We asked and they recommended a tour operator in the hotel: Acova Tour. Owned by Javier Corona. he did an excellent job setting up 7 days of tours including Antigua and Tikal and Lake Atitlan. His guides spoke excellent english and what we liked most was his suggestions and then his willingness to adjust as we communicated back and forth to prepare for the trip. He was flexible and made excellent suggestions. One of our group of 4 had mobility problems and Javier worked out all of the necessary adjustments. He made the trip a terrific and safe experience.

The hotel is has its charm. I liked the fact that our room had its very own fireplace. The hotel grounds are nicely kept and although a bit dated, the bathroom was clean and the room as comfortable. The only drawback to this hotel would be the location. I would have preferred to stay at a place more in the center of town. The hotel is located about a 10-15 walk from the main plaza. Even though it's not a long walk it's still annoying to have to walk back in sometimes lonely roads after dinner in the center of town.
We booked this hotel because it was a part of a great deal. Overall, good hotel but i think i will choose another one next time.

Been here for 3 nights and have enjoyed my stay. The room where I stayed has 2 big beds and very much clean...and so with the bathroom. Location and amenities are great. I like their swimming pool centrally located on the Hotel. Did I mentioned their toilets are sealed upon arrival with a logo "SANITIZED"? Cool huh?!

Stayed here for a week during Thanksgiving week. Beautiful grounds and the one bedroom units were quite spacious, but a bit worn. The staff was very helpful, but the answers to my questions kept changing. I was told three times there would be a full Thanksgiving dinner in the restaurant. By the time I got back from my tour that day, went down to dinner and no Thanksgiving. And of course, it was too late to make reservations anywhere else. I realize it’s not their holiday, but so many Americans were there that week, and hotels serve it all over the world. If they were not going to have it, they should have told me, and I would have made alternative arrangements. Also the travel agency in the hotel is not as accommodating to solo travelers as I would have wished. Not their fault, it’s who they contract with. So fortunately I had several travel agencies I worked with who made sure that I literally saw everything there was to see. Thanks to Lydia and others in the front desk who were so helpful. Lydia saw to it I got to have a privately escorted tour of Guatemala City on the way to the airport. Another great trip. Thanks to all who made it that way.

Always an amazing stay at this hotel. I visit Guatemala annually for a Mission Trip and the hospitality is great. The staff is very helpful, and the hotel is nice, clean, and safe. the location is in a very busy and safe location, and minutes from the Square and the Market. And the spa....hoo la la. The service was amazing and for a great price. I hope to return back to the their facilities every year.
