Stayed at this wonderful hotel a few years ago after several recommendations from Peace Corps friends living in the area. This was a fantastic and peaceful retreat after a long summer of working in Guatemala. Though the sun never came out during my 4-day stay, it was still such a magical place. (I did wake up before dawn one day in the hopes of seeing the sun rise over the lake and volcanoes but only caught a glimpse of sunlight. Still pretty amazing and something I'd recommend especially if you are visiting outside of rainy season!)
The food was excellent and I really enjoyed the communal dining. The rooms were simple but clean and comfortable. I loved being able to swing around in the hammocks and explore the multiple terraces of the property. Unfortunately it was too cold to swim when I was there but it was certainly tempting. All in all I would highly recommend this place - in all my travels this ranks among the best accommodations I've experienced.
