A fellow traveler we met on our way to lake atitlan recommended case rosa to us. We looked it up online and saw there was wifi, yoga, beautiful rooms and gardens, so we called and made a reservation. we arrived the next day and were greeted by dona rosa who showed us our garden bungalow. the garden and location of casa rosa are very beautiful, but a the bungalow was a bit dirty (spiderwebs everywhere and trash that dona rosa removed once we entered). the linens of the bed were very old and had so much pilling that it was a little uncomfortable. it just didn't feel clean. neither did the bathroom.
there also was no wifi. we were the only guests at the time, which felt a little lonely. the breakfast we ate there once was good, but we soon discovered that you could have very lively family style dinners and nice breakfasts at the iguana perdida right next door. at iguana perdida the staff also offered tons of help and gave us tips on what to do, asked us how our day was and what we did or were planning to do the next day. it just made it that much more obvious that the atmosphere at dona rosa was very different. it felt deserted and while dona rosa was always friendly, she never engaged in a conversation. the second day we met her daughter, who was a little harsh (always made comments about us paying so we won't run away without paying....which i find a little weird. as a guest i do not want to be passive aggressively accused of that without any reason). also there was obviously some friction between daughter and mother, overall we just felt a little like unwanted house guests in someones private home. there also wasn't any yoga, but they do have mats and a patio where you can practice by yourself. and as i said, the garden is really beautiful. but unfortunately i would not recommend this hotel.
