“Gorgeous cabañas with panoramic views of Lake Atitlàn!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Last night was my first stay at Maya Moon Lodge in Tzununà and I was thoroughly impressed!

First, the Mayan village of Tzununà is one of the nicest, safest, and picturesque places at the Lake. It's conveniently located between Santa Cruz La Laguna and San Marcos. Although most people travel by ferry boat, it's very nice to have road access when you want to travel to San Marcos or San Pedro. It's also a great place to walk for sightseeing.

I arrived at the Lodge via the road entrance, but it has its own private dock for guests to come in by boat. Passing through the gates my first view was of the lush and colorful tropical gardens, which are in full bloom year around. As I walked down toward the cabañas, I got beautiful glimpses of the Lake and was warmly greeted by one of the owners, Fiona. She was smiling and genuinely interested in showing me around the hotel property.

As I mentioned, the gardens are lovely and boast a variety of tropical plants, palm and banana trees, and exotic flowers. But my favorite thing was seeing the hummingbirds that come to feed on the flowers each day!

Everything at the Lodge...the bar, lounge, and cabañas... are built mostly with local bamboo, which provides an elegant, yet very relaxing, atmosphere. The feeling is that you've just entered a fairy tale version of paradise.

In the afternoon I got to meet Chris, Fiona's partner, and received another warm welcome! Both owners were so easy to chat with and they provided me with some very helpful information for guests staying at the Lake. It's really nice that they live on the property because every time that I needed something (extra pillow, bottled water, etc.) one of them was always available.

I had dinner in the waterfront lounge so that I could fully enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains and volcanoes. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. I love that the ingredients are super fresh and purchased from local farmers. In addition to non-alcoholic drinks, they also offered a nice selection of wine, beer, and spirits.

Watching the sun settle at night, falling asleep to the soothing sounds of the waves, and waking up to the sunrise view and birds chirping was quite amazing.

Some other great things about staying at the Lodge:

- They offer reliable pick up services from Guatemala City and Panajachel.
- This place is perfect for couples, solo travelers, and families.
- The fast WIFI internet service was available in all areas.
- The owners will gladly arrange tours and other activities.
- Fiona knows where to get the best massages, facials, holistic treatments, etc.
- It's easy to get to either Panajachel or San Pedro because the Lodge is centrally located.
- The cabins are super clean, comfortable, and roomy with incredible views.

Room Tip: All cabañas and guest rooms have a panoramic view.
