From the moment that we stepped into Hotel Atitlan we knew it was a special place. There were candles lit and beautiful Christmas decorations in the lobby. We could not wait until sunrise to look at the gardens and the lake. The food was a bit pricey for Guatemala but very good and we had excellent service from our waiter. We took the hotel's boat trip for $15 over to Santiago Atitlan- the $15 includes the boat trip r/t and they allow you two hours to walk around the town. Don't miss the nearby Nature reserve - it is an easy hike from the hotel to a platform for viewing the monkeys and a nearby waterfall. We also had a massage for $35 an hour- the setting for the massage was nothing special but it was a good massage. There are some beautiful items in the gift shop and they are reasonably priced.
