Casa Santo Domingo is the most exquisite hotel I have had the pleasure of staying it. From the moment you walk through the front door, down the long stone corridor filled with candles and flowers, you are treated as a valued guest. This hotel, originally a monastery, was once destroyed by earthquakes. It has since been excavated and restored to its original charm. Every last detail tended to and appreciated by the staff.
My husband, a native Antigueno, and I, from the States, were married in the Church towards the back of the grounds and celebrated with a reception in a quaint garden area. Every aspect of our wedding was gorgeous and the staff was integral in aiding us in the planning process, making it easy to arrive the week before relaxed and prepared to celebrate.
This year, we returned to celebrate our anniversary. Believe it or not, the staff remembered us and treated us like friends and personal guests of the hotel. I was spoiled with a pre-natal massage during our stay, as well. The entire experience was superb! They are expanding their spa services and building an incredible new facility. I completed a questionnaire regarding my health history and received a hand massage prior to being led back to a gorgeous hotel suite where the massage would take place. I was directed to a spacious, private restroom to change before relaxing on the warm massage table. From the robes and the slippers to the music and massage itself, I was in heaven! I have had a variety of massages throughout my life and this ranks up there with the best spas and resorts in the world (i.e. Kohler, The Ritz, etc.).
All in all, I had a five star experience at a five star hotel in charming Antigua, Guatemala! I am anxious to go back!
