Posada de Santiago
Certificate of Excellence

I always love staying at the Posada - the excellent food and service, feel-at-home atmosphere and comfy rooms are all a pleasure, and the shower made me feel like I was momentarily back home in the States.

This visit coincided with a fantastic afternoon and evening of lakeside live music and barbecued everything - even tofu for the veggies (not me!:). Love the addition of solar panels installed to heat the Jacuzzi and pool.

The Posada exceeded our expectations in every way! David, the owner, has created a spot that fits in perfectly with its surroundings on the lake. Each casita is decorated with local furnishings, textiles, and handicrafts. We were in Casa Rosa and it was very comfortable. We loved the location as it was quiet and serene but had easy access to the lake where we kayaked by ourselves one morning and also took boat trips to neighboring villages. The restaurant food was delicious at each meal (as were the drinks!) and the servers were so sweet, especially Nino! We thoroughly enjoyed a tour of Santiago with the knowledgeable and delightful Dolores Ratzan and our two days spent with Rolando who accompanied us hiking San Pedro and exploring Pana and the Solala market. We would never have been able to do what we did (ride a chicken bus, try our hand making tortillas with a woman vendor, visit the cemetery, and learn SO much about the local culture, customs and history of the lake) without Rolando. It’s clear to see that David has created a real family with his staff at the Posada. There is great mutual respect. This is a gem of a place!!

Room Tip: Casa Rosa was perfect for our family of four. It is close to the dining room but the foot traffic w...

We arrived cold and wet and hopped right in the hot tub! Swam in the pool right at the lake's edge and in the lake too! The sauna was hot but dripped blue paint on us....
We rented the house, La Hacienda, and used it just for sleeping since we ate all our meals in the hotel restaurant. The food was delicious and well priced. Try the excellent hot chocolate! We would recommend this to others. The grounds are beautiful and the staff friendly.

We absolutely enjoyed our time at the Posada. The staff were fantastic, the ambience was very tranquil, and the atmosphere very authentic at this quaint and inviting hotel. Very laid back and friendly environment to enjoy our comidas deliciosas y bebidas. The rooms are appointed and suited to the local culture. We totally recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Santiago.

The Posada is one of the nicest places to stay close to the town of Santiago. The town is a close walk up the street, and across the street the Posada has a lake-front spot to relax with a pool, hot-tub and a doc to access the beach. It is a great spot to relax, swim or rent a canoe for a relaxing ride on the lake. The food is excellent, and Jim the owner sometime has live music in the dining area on some evenings. The cabins are made of stone and absolutely charming. The rooms have filtered water on tap as well. It is a great place to start your visit to Lago de Atitlan

Room Tip: Rooms, halfway up the hill, are surrounded with beautiful gardens and are a close walk to the main b...

We had the pleasure of staying here for three nights. The "cabins" are well appointed and the staff is top notch! After we returned to Antigua we discovered that my husband did not have his money pouch containing a credit card and cash. After tearing apart our luggage we called Posada de Santiago and learned that indeed it had been left there but, our tour company had already been contacted by the staff and a courier was being sent. This was not an easy task considering that it was toward the end of Holy Week and the local roads were jammed with traffic and Antigua was wall-to-wall cars and pedestrians. When the pouch was delivered it had been secured in multiple layers of plastic and tape. All the contents were in tact. The grounds at Posada de Santiago are beautiful and the restaurant is excellent. Rolando took us on a birding expedition and he did a great job! If you want coffee before 7:30 a.m. request it and it will be delivered for a nominal charge.
