We stayed at the Villas over Christmas this year, having little idea of what to expect. We travelled by private car from Antigua, over steep mountain highways, through jammed villages and markets, then down an imposssibly steep driveway to one of the mose beautiful places I have ever been. Leslie arranged meals to be prepared in our villa, and for...

Holy guacamole! I have traveled extensively in Central America, and this was hands-down my favorite destination I have stayed at so far. My unreasonably wonderful experience started minutes after I arrived, as I had clicked the button during checkout to add a $40 massage, and said massage was scheduled minutes after my checkin.

We spent two nights in the Jade cottage which is a beautiful one bedroom with a kitchen located on a steep hill overlooking beautiful Lake Atitilan with views of the volcanoes. The views from this area are gorgeous and breathtaking as you view the three volcanoes rising from the lake and the small indigenous villages dotting the lake. There is...

I would recommend this in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a peaceful place to spend time with the family, a romantic place to be with just the wife or girlfriend. I've been there 5 times and have tried out all but one villa and they are all great, with a wonderful view of the lake, quiet, you wake up...

My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights in Jade Cottage in May. The price was fantastic, but I am on the fence as to whether you should splurge and get the largest Villa B'alam Ya. It really has the best spot right on the lake. The driveway is steep and it was a little terrifying driving up and down it....

We stayed 1 night at Villas Balam Ya. First of all, thanks a lot for free upgrade! We stayed at amazing Deluxe villa with great view to Lake Atitlan. Villa was extremely cozy, with wonderful terrace and bedroom with tall windows looking at the lake. And it was very silent.. We enjoyed our stay a lot!
