We stayed 2 nights as that was all that was available - in one of the $90 small rooms (not a suite) and it was absolutely wonderful and a complete bargain. We had previously stayed 2 nights in the Aurora hotel (which had better reviews on here) and paid either $60 or $70 but the Mezon Panza Verde was so worth the extra and would have been worth much more.
Our room was quite small but really romantic, it had its own patio and a gas burner which was lovely. We arrived after dark and the hotel was so beautiful, lit up with candles. We also loved the roof terraces and spent the whole of the next day just lounging around the hotel. We really wished we could have stayed longer. We used the pool as well which was nice but you couldn't use it during the hours the restaurant was open.
We had booked in advance to eat in the restaurant on our second night but as soon as we arrived we both knew we wanted to eat there twice and luckily they fit us in with a table just next to the pool. We stayed Wednesday and Thursday night so a band was playing in the restaurant both nights. I would say worth arranging your trip around this as both were brilliant. The food and wine and atmosphere in the restaurant were sensational - definitely not cheap (UK prices) but worth every penny. We loved the fact that we came out of our room staight into the restaurant but some people might not.
We had rearranged our trip so that we could stay in one of the romantic hotels in Antigua as they were all booked up the weekend we first arrived so we went to Lake Atitlan and came back. I was worried that it would mean spending too long in Antigua but we were so glad we did just so we had the experience of staying here. It was the highlight of our stay in Guatemala.
