“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

We had a week here and loved it. They also have a resort in San Jos, Soleil Pacifico Resort.They were nice enough to drive us down and put us up for a night for free.

The staff was great and friendly. The restaurant was also tasty. I would do it again.

I've stayed in several hotels in Guatemala. Soleil Hotel is one of my favorites. Its just outside Antigua, but still within a nice walk (8-10 blocks) to the craft market and town square. Its clean, comfortable and in a gorgeous setting. Soleil has a full service dining room, spa, pool, and more. Usually, personnel at the front desk speak very good English and of course Spanish. They are friendly and attentive to needs. When groups are staying on the property there tends to be a vender at the entrance selling hand crafts and other items. They tend to be much higher priced than from the Craft Market a few blocks away. Don't be afraid to negotiate with a sense of fun. I recommend Soleil for personal, business, individual or group accommodations. I've had a group up to 60 here. With a large team book in advance and allow plenty of time for check-in. They're not slow, but it won't be quick either.

Room Tip: I prefer the suites which are worth the extra price. Rooms farther from the pool may be a tad qui...

This lovely resort hotel is perfectly located just outside the center of the city. Transportation to anywhere by tuk tuk or taxi is easy and inexpensive. The rooms are large, comfortable and attractive. The pool area is lovely. The restaurant has a beautiful outside area, and the bar has tv channels for most sports. The food is more than adequate and the buffet breakfasts offer a good variety of food. The health club is nothing at all; we didn't use th spa. The front desk staff is accommodating. The rates are a good value. We would stay again were we to visit Antigua.

Room Tip: The hotel is large so ask for a room fairly close to the reception area on the second floor, which i...

I guess if you want to be away from the main square and surrounded by kids, this is the place for you. There is a shuttle to the main square but it is infrequent. The fireplace is a nice touch and def. not decorative - it gets cold at night. Good if you have kids, and want a buffer between you and the country, i guess. It might also be a nice treat to use the incredible spa after hiking if you're doing that - whirlpool to wash the knots away. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

The hotel offers a shuttle service not every hour but a few enough. Plenty of parking. The swimming pool was nice and warm the one with the slide can be a lot of fun for the kids they play music the kind you expect at a classic guatemala bar. They have live marimba for lunch buffet now the food is horrible! I think the price you pay is probably the fact they have two big pools but this hotel is lacking on the charm of the city. If you really want a colonial and very peaceful experience then I wouldn't recommend the hotel if you have kiddos and they need a pool to.release energy and cool off then this hotel is for you.

I just returned from a week-long stay at Soleil. The entire staff worked exceptionally hard to accommodate all requests. This was a timeshare exchange ( for my Disney Vacation Club). While not on a par with Disney properties, the unit was well furnished with kitchenette (stove top, frig, cookware, microwave), a large living room, bedroom and bath. Twice, however, there was no hot water for showers. No potable water, but for $5, a large 5 gallon water dispenser was provided that lasted two people the entire week. The Thai spa was quiet and attractive with expert personnel. A buffet breakfast was good, but the same each day. We ate one dinner which was very good in the main restaurant. Bath and bed linens were a little worn, but clean. The landscaped grounds were beautiful, tennis courts and pools clean and well-cared for.
It was very easy to make dily plans for tours through Ericka, the Venta Acova Agency manager who has an office on site. She was easily accessible by email prior to the trip as well. I would recommend this hotel.
