A lot of reviewers comments actually refer to the Paseo De Los Museo, one of the entrances to which is through the Hotel. No ifs no buts the Paseo is wonderful. But the hotel is another story.

We did try to book there, but they were so slow in responding that we'd already spent two night in Antigua and by the time we finally got their answer so only experienced the restaurant after visiting the Paseo.

A lucky escape we feel. Absolutely nothing to make you feel welcome. It is quite luxurious, but in a very sterile sort of way and worst of all they deliberately set out to mislead their customers as to their prices. Scour their web site if you like and see if you can find out whether the room rates include breakfast (which is of course optional) or tax (which is not). The info isn't there. Not making the tax element visible would be illegal in Europe (don't know about the US), here in Guatemala it's just sharp practice and businesses with such low ethical standards do not deserve our custom.

This is not a financial issue it's a moral one and the only way to educate businesses like this is with our feet.

The unusual renovation/restoration, incorporating vast ruins and associated museums was the high point of our visit to Antigua.

While we did not stay here...several from our church group traveling in Antigua, Guatemala went here to eat out. The food was excellent. The atmosphere is something to behold in this old reconverted mission location. It is a treat just to tour the grounds of this place. I would not hesitate to eat here again.

They are so many reasons for visiting this place : the beautiful palace, the interesting history collections but if ther is only one, it should be the incredible open air Church...

I passed this several times and didn't understand why people bothered going in. When I finally did I was awe struck. It's a cultural compound. The grounds are stunning with new intermingling with old and the art collection was really impressive. Stop by, it seems like an odd stop but it's worth the time.
