“An unforgettable stay”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We stayed here for three nights and have had a very pleasant stay. Unfortunately, the rising water of the lake has flooded two of the bungalows, also taking away part of what must have been a wonderful garden. Nevertheless, new bungalows are under construction and what's left of the garden is still very nice. The site is located a little away from the village center, either a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute ride with a local TucTuc, but that also implies that you can enjoy the quiet evenings on the terrace of your bungalow, with a view of the lake and without noisy tourists.

The welcome that we had from Fritz was very warm and he has given us a few hints on what to do around San Pedro, as well as valuable advice for the next parts of our trip. Finally, they probably serve the best breakfast in Guatemala.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and the owner was very helpful with recommending restaurants in San Pedro. There is proper path from the main road to where the houses are, so it is a bit of a challenge getting in and out if you are not in walking condition. We had two big, heavy luggage which the owner helped us with. I was initially perturbed by having to walk through someone else's property (there are some locals living before where Casa Lobo is), but after a while, it grows on you... where else do you get to interact with the locals, even if it is just saying "Good morning?" or peeking at them having dinner?

For the first night, it was so quiet I couldn't fall asleep! (We're city dwellers). But it's great to wake to the sounds of nature and be able to peak into the lake (we got the smaller room with partial lake view). The room is nice and clean. Internet is patchy, but as we learnt, internet is not that fabulous in whole of San Pedro.

It is not in town, but tuc-tuc are aplenty, you just need to wait a little once in a while. We walked a couple of times, and I absolutely enjoyed the walk because you get a gorgeous view of the lake at some parts, and can observe the local people farming. Yes, it is 20 mins, but it's great exercise, especially after all the yummy food in San Pedro! It's quite warm in the day time, and a little dark after sunset, so anything between 5-7pm would be a good walk back to Casa Lobo.

My wife and stayed here five nights in March. The rising water level has put two of the three bungalows out of commision. However, the owner is adding two new bungalows. It is out of town, but you can get a three wheeler into town for less than a dollar. The plus is you are not going to be kept up by drunk twenty somethings because you are in a quiet residential neighborhood. The one negative is that the rising lake level made the use of a nice path impossible. Now you have to go through several houses on a dirt path which is muddy when it rains and littered with trash.


The breakfast was wonderful and served on the patio with a wonderful view of the lake. Overall I would happily reccomend Casa Lobo.

We stayed 4 nights in Casa Lobo and enjoyed it very much. We liked the location - even it is 20 minutes by walk outside of San Pedro - because it is quiet and right on the lake. The room was nice and very clean with a small balcony. The breakfast is outstanding, the best after 4 month of travelling. Wolfgang and Fritz are amazing hosts. We would definitely come back..!
Lieber Wolfgang, lieber Fritz, noch einmal herzlichen Dank für die schönen Tage. Gruss B & J

My wife and I just stayed with the fantastic hosts at Casa Lobo a few days ago. The bungalow was perfect and the breakfasts were wonderful. Huge variety of house-made treats and a solid egg dish. Wine glass full of fresh fruit, citrus infused water, fresh juice and a great french press full of Guatemalan coffee. The hosts are the best part - so nice and they do an amazing job. The location is nice and quiet but out of the town center. Tuk-tuk taxis were easy to find and only 5Q per person. You can also walk a few minutes to town and it is very safe. You should know there is a narrow path between some friendly locals' homes to access the property while the lake level is high. We LOVED this aspect but perhaps an extremely elderly or all-inclusive-type of tourist would find it less than ideal. A torch or headlamp will help late at night. People come back here every year and we can see why - would highly recommend Casa Lobo to friends and family and I hope we can make it back soon.

This was one of our favorite lodging that we found in all of Guatemala during our four month stay, especially in San Pedro which seems to be overran with cheap, uncomfortable hostels/hotels. We found the location to be a great retreat from the bustle of San Pedro, away from the hawkers and bars and into relaxation. We prepared some basic meals in the kitchen, but really enjoyed the breakfasts that was provided, along with the conversation with the owner. Highly recommended!

We stayed for seven nights at Casa Lobo for our belated honeymoon. We saw the beautiful pictures on their Facebook page and decided to book our stay there. We very much enjoyed our experience. Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating. The views from the bungalow were amazing, as were the afternoon swims and sundeck. The breakfast each morning was presented beautifully, tasted delicious and provided us with some time to gaze out at the beautiful Lake Atitlan. If you are looking for a great getaway outside of the party scene of San Pedro la Laguna and don't mind too much the buggy nature of being close to the lake, this is the place to be. A great experience!
