I struggle to find the words to express how much I enjoyed this hotel. Having just arrived in Guatemala, armed with stories of how unsafe the country is, I went straight from the airport to the hotel. Stunning from the moment you walk in until you leave. Something for your camera around every corner; fountains, ruins, flowers, and more. The first day was like a treasure hunt, exploring the pottery and candle factory, crypts, grounds, museums, pool, restaurant & bar. They even had local weavers displaying their colorful fabrics, purses & scarves. The rooms were comfortable (Fireplace!); tastefully decorated. Nice amenities in the bathroom (Toothbrush, Toothpaste, sewing kit, razor, shower cap, in addition to the liquids and soap). The Service was spot on (if not excessively solicitous). To be disturbed the least amount of times, use the DND sign. My housekeeper was great, but even with the DND sign, I was visited by a housekeeper wanting to know if my room is okay, the about 30 minutes later she came back and wanted to personally hand me a letter that the water would be off for maintenance for a few minutes, then about an hour later with some laundry, etc. I'm not the kind of traveler that needs to be "checked on". That aside, excellent service from Claudia and Francisco at the front desk to the housekeeping staff to Pilar the Manager. Good Job! I ate in the restaurant a couple of nights and the food was very good (I had the filet). The bartender did not speak English, but we muddled through with my Spanglish. Almost every other person I encountered was bi-lingual. They play music all day (a mixture of chant, arias, gregorian, etc.) that gets a little much by about 10pm at night..but adds to the atmosphere for the first day or two. The 2nd day I ventured out with a guide on a walking tour. Only blocks from the square, the hotel, indeed this entire city, felt safe and welcoming. I will return!
