Quinta de las Flores

Reviewed 16 May 2008

Even after reading all of the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor.com, Quinta de las Flores still exceeded our expectations. The grounds are lovely, as can be seen from the photos. The staff was friendly and willing to help. One night we stumbled in to the restaurant 15 minutes before its closing time. Clearly they had already cleaned up and closed down the kitchen but still they prepared us a meal without complaint.

Many of the other reviewers have indicated that the hotel is too far from the center of town but my wife and I didn't feel that this was an issue at all. In fact we liked having the opportunity to walk to and from town each day, taking a different route each time. It's only 10 minutes and we felt completely safe at all times of the day and evening.

We had a wonderful time in Antigua and Quinta de las Flores deserves all of the praises that it has received here.

We stayed here on a the advise of a travel book . It was absolutely astounding. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed at one of the casitas which held all 7 of our party. The grounds were beautiful. The food was delicious. We changed our travel plans so we could stay here again after we returned from Tikal. I have traveled all over central america and never seen a place as nice as this.

Nice lace, good service, beautiful flowers. Compared to Atitlan's Lomas de Tzununa this hotel was a bit over prized. (or Tzununa under priced).
Easy access from airport, the hotel arranged a shuttle.

We stayed at Quinta de las Flores during the first few days of our stay in Guatemala. The hotel is not near the center of town but is walkable (about a 10 minute walk). The grounds are gorgeous - beautiful gardens, pretty pool, nice view of the volcanoes (when you have a view), truly an oasis. The staff was pleasant but not overly friendly. The people at the front desk were not very helpful when we asked them to make a dinner reservation or when we asked them to look up the phone number of a car rental company (said they didn't have a phone book?). The grounds staff were very friendly as was the gatekeeper.

There is a nice outdoor living room where you can relax or read. Our room was large with two double beds, a fireplace, a nice terrace, decent bathroom. Rooms are pretty simply decorated but comfortable. There is also a safe in the room, which was nice. Somehow my razor went missing - not sure if the housekeeping staff took it or if they accidentally threw it away. A bit of a strange mystery...

There are MANY beautiful hotel options in Antingua so if you want something closer to where the action is, you definitely have choices. In fact, it was surprising how many upscale hotel options there were. Antigua is a cute city with narrow sidewalks and cobblestone streets. It was a bit dusty but that is to be expected during this time of year, I suppose.

Definitely recommend hiking to Pacaya Volcano. We went through Guatemala Adventures which was well worth it, although the minivan was one of the worst we'd seen. Rafael, our guide, was great.

If you need to rent a car, use Tabarini - the manager there, Gilda was one of the most lovely, nicest people we met during our 10 day trip. The folks at Alamo are scammers and overbook and aren't open on Sundays, even though they take reservations for Sunday pick ups.

We stayed at Quinta last August with our two young children and loved it. The place feels very authentic and is full of wonderful photo opportunities. It is a bit far from the centre to walk to, but you can easily and cheaply get a tuk tuk to move about. The more expensive rooms are spacious and have a patio ideal for children to play - and there is even a little playground on the premises which is not advertised anywhere. The pool is also nice but the water, unfortunately, is ice cold - so bring a wetsuit for your kids! The food in the restaurant was delicious, including very nice breakfast with lots of juices and warm bread and cookies. We also stayed at Casa Santo Domingo, but, although beautiful, it felt very impersonal - go there just as a day visit.

The hotel is not localed in the very down town of antigua, but is inside the city. You can walk around the hotel and find that in every corner there is history and beautiful places and very interesting people.
The rooms are very nice, nothing fancy, but you´ll have everything you need. Large beds, cable tv, chimenea, good clean bathroom, closet, safety box, etc.
The garden: this is the real beauty of the hotel. You can walk out your room, walk in the garden and feel you are in a magical place...with all the flowers, tha fountains, the trees and the huge vulcano in front of you.
Perfect place to be with your partner, family, friends or yoursefl.

An absolutely fantastic hotel - certainly the best I stayed at in Central America and undoubtedly one of the best anywhere! The grounds are stunning ang you could easily spend a relaxing couple of hours enjoying the surroundings.

The rooms were clean, large and well decorated with lots of character. The breakfast was superb and really good value too.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is located a bit of a walk from the centre of Antigua but it is a pleasant walk and there are some interesting churches, squares, etc. along the way.
