Casa Santa Domingo was one of the most romantic places my husband and I have ever stayed. What a unique idea - a modern luxury hotel, tastefully and creatively built around the ruins of a 16th century monastary. The museums throughout the grounds are remarkable - be sure to visit the many cripts where bones are on display. But the rest of the hotel integrates the ruins in creative ways, such as the wall bordering the pool area is a ruin from the historic monastary. My college roomate got married in the chapel, which retains the historic, ruined walls, but has replaced the ruined ceiling with a tasteful modern canopy.
Our room was very comfortable, with a remarkable view of the volcano from our 2nd flr. balcony and a fountain tinkling below. Sacred music plays softly in the public areas and candles are everywhere. On the downside, the front desk service was a bit curt, and we received a room with two double beds, despite requesting a king.
Happy travelers will remember that they are in Latin America, not the USA, and with a flexible attitude will be very happy at Casa Santa Domingo. Also, if you liked it here, be sure to visit Hotel Atitlan in Panajachel.
