We stayed at Lush Atitlan over Christmas. It is a relatively quick walk from the boat docks in San Marcos. The property itself is a tropical paradise. Surrounded by 'lush' gardens, each room is unique and tucked away from the others. While you may at times see glimpses or hear conversations, it is really an oasis. A great place to...

Checked in and paid 550Q cash for 3 nights, the Guatemalan manager refused to give me a receipt so I wrote it on the check-in paperwork in front of him that 550Q had been paid. This was for a room without bathroom that is a steal at 150Q a night. A large room, very good sheets and pillows and a...

Lush in itself was an experience we'll remember forever. I have been to San Marcos several times over the past 15 years and it was my boyfriend's first time in the area- while sitting on our private terrace at Lush overlooking the lake surrounded by volcanoes and watching sunrise and set everyday in this very special place, we decided that...

I join many others , that San Marcos has the special soul of this beautiful lake, with the vivid Volcanoes with overing clouds. And Lush has the spirit of beautiful gardens and views, and tasteful breakfast, with care to so many details. A wonderful staff of Nahmias and others, and Lilly to make sure all is perfect shape.

Beautiful place. Very peaceful. Staff speaks English and are extremely helpful. San Marcos is a quiet place away from the touristy feel of other towns on the lake. Lots of vegetarian food in San Marcos.

Set on Lake Atitlan just back from the water this is an oasis. We stayed in Luz, the cheapest option and it was good value. Really comfy bed, stone walls, stylish decor. Lake Atitlan is very relaxing and we spent a couple of days there chilling after a hectic few weeks of travelling. San Marcos is quiet, a maze of...

While on the lake we had been staying in a different village and paying the same price for a basic room when we happened upon this place whilst swimming one morning. The entrance interested me and we followed the path to a gorgeous garden that felt like it would definitely be out of budget. To our very pleasant surprise we...

If you are healthy and looking for something different and a little adventurous, go to Lush on San Marcos. The rooms were pretty clean, definitely different and fun. Our suite, Cascade, was two rooms, two baths with a kitchen. Very nice but you must be able to climb the equivalent of three flights of stone steps up the side of...

The place is an amazing garden in front of the lake with rooms around It, just beautiful. Lily and the staff were very nice. Good place to enjoy a quite and relaxed stay. Breakfast at the terrace is great, very traditional. They close the front door at night let staff know if you are coming back late at night so...

We certainly enjoyed our stay at LUSH. It is very clean with hot water. I love the treehouse atmosphere, the view and the location near the water. My only concern would be for children under 10. The spindles on the railings are very far apart, thus children could easily fall great distances. Other than this concern, it is a great...
