I had no real expectations of this place as it was only my second place to stay in Guatemala, and I just picked it by calling randomly through the Lonely Planet; my first choice had been full. However, it was absolutely lovely. I loved my room. The view of the lake were phenomenal, a huge picture window. I could lie in bed and watch the sun come up, see all the colours in the sky and on the water. There was a lovely lawn with hammocks also and lovely gardens. Some people went and breakfasted down there. It was well located with very nice cafes on either side in the more peaceful side of San Pedro, close to the Santiago dock. I would definitely recommend this place. It is slightly difficult to find from the Panajachel dock where the minibuses drop passengers off, but there are always guides willing to take you to the room for a tip of a couple of quetzales. Enjoy!
