“Relaxing and beautiful”
Reviewed October 18, 2010

We stayed three nights at Paco Real while visiting Lago de Atitlan and Chichicastenango. We had a great time there, sleeping in a cabin around a beautiful courtyard. The food at the restaurant was very good and the service was excellent and really personal. The owner was very friendly and gave us helpful hints on the area.

(Also.. stop by Le Fé if you stay here, great food!)

We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great, quiet, safe place to stay.

we had a great time in paco real. the cabin was very clean and comfortable. the place is unique and has isolated wooden cabens (wuth/without bathrooms) with a quiet and nice atmosphere.

it seems like the owner is a great guy, very reliable that the place is very importing to him, and we felt very nice and safe there

their a nice restaurant and the food was good.

we saw that someone wrote negative things and that he had been stolen from- its seems unreliable to us, and is important for us to mentions that the place feels very safe. seems that injustice has been done to the place and its owners.

have a graet trip- hopefully in san marcos too

After being offered a room that had a broken lock on the door we asked for a room with a functioning lock. We left our bags and went out to get some food. When we came back I noticed the owner was acting rather suspicious and upon entering our room I saw that both of our bags were semi opened and articles of clothing and other personal belongings were missing. DO NOT STAY HERE!

PacoReal, Owner at Hotel Paco Real, responded to this review, October 1, 2010
As the owner Hotel Paco Real, I am very concerned about this review. Further to reading it, we have interviewed all our staff about this alleged incident and no one is aware of it ever taking place, nor of any broken locks at the time this person alleges to have stayed at Paco Real.

In July, we completed extensive renovations of the hotel, including repairing or replacing any locks that may have been defective. Why would we take anything from our clients after spending thousands of dollars renovating the hotel to attract more clients? This would be quite illogical on our part.

If a client suspects that someone at our hotel has stolen something from them, we would expect them to notify management immediately and we would also recommend that they immediately report it at the police station, which is located less than 5 minutes away from our hotel... which they could have done if they suspected that the owner had taken something from them. We have checked with the police and they have no report on file about this alleged incident.

We are very concerned about such a review being written as this can adversely affect our business integrity… could it be that it was posted by either a competitor or someone who does not like the fact that we are bringing tourists to the area?

Should you suspect that you had something stolen while staying at our hotel, I strongly encourage you to contact me directly to review the situation and to give us the opportunity to make amends and replace any lost items. I can assure you that I will personally oversee this.
