We very much enjoyed our two night stay in this stunningly designed hotel on the N edge of Lake Atitlan, a good base for exploring the western highlands and a destination in itself. On a clear day, there is a dramatic view across the lake towards the volcano
The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful garden with resident exotic birds and has an elegant pool area. The well-executed interior décor has a local theme and the overall atmosphere is peaceful. Our garden level room and bathroom (shower only) were well designed, adequately equipped, well lit – unusual in Guatemala – and had a patio. Only some rooms are within the range of the overpriced WiFi but there were also public computers.
Our two breakfasts and dinners were excellent and all the restaurant and bar staff we met were friendly and competent.
We would rate this hotel four star plus and recommend it.
