“Newer hotel with a definite colonial atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2008

We were part of a Caravan Tours group that spent two (2) nites here and, in general, enjoyed the stay. Good food and above average ambiance with an old Spanish-colonial flavor to the property. Only negatives were the room being too close to the street (constant trucks, cars until late at nite), firecrackers at odd hours (?) and being a bit too far from town so that a taxi ride is required after hours (dark). Most likely would not stay there again but can recommend the hotel nonetheless. Would appeal to older travelers moreso than others.

I arrived at this hotel with Caravan Tours. This is totally laid out in colonial style, beautifly place. I had the cutest little room with a sky light!, the one wall inside my room was done in brick and i had a cute little courtyard..

The dinners and breakfasts were very delicious and they had great funky fruit juices to try!

You can walk from the town to the hotel, which i did alone and felt quite safe. I would definatively return!!

We stayed here two nights on a Caravan tour. The hotel is charming and beautiful--you feel like you stepped back in time into a nobleman's hacienda. The grounds are beautiful and the architecure very interesting--different sections and colors. A second floor dining room and buffet breakfast out side on a terrace was appetizing. The food was good. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Our room was adequate and clean. The bath was a good. There aren't any screens on the windows and only a flimsy lock, so I would not leave any valuables in the room. It is a long walk into town on some dark streets, but taxis are plentiful and cheap.

The Villa Colonial is a very nice hotel in Antigua with interesting colonial architecture and nice rooms. The second-foor dining room is pleasant with a view over the courtyard, the staff were very nice, and the food was good. It is away from the town center, about a half-hour's walk but there is plenty of transportation from town.

  • Liked — Large comfortable room, good food, and a pretty courtyard

This is a pretty hotel within walking distance to the center of Antigua. We found our room to be very nice although many people in our group had much smaller rooms. Food is ok. Would not recommend it to anyone with mobility issue as steps to get to rooms and to dining room. Walk to Antigua center also a little further than other hotels and over uneven sidewalks.

On a trip to Antigua, Guatemala we stayed at the Villas Colonial, part of a small hotel chain in Guatemala. The city is a UNESCO world heritage site, and although the hotel is not ancient they have done a remarkable job of creating a truly colonial look. We couldn't believe the hotel was only 8 years old! The hotel was hosting 2 weddings as we arrived into what looked like a spanish villa. Apparently couples come from around the world to marry here. The hotel central courtyard has fountain gardens and a small pool. Each of the hotel rooms are a little different with cupolas, balconies,cobblestone streets and courtyards. All in our group ran around looking at each other's rooms! The food was the only disappointment but only because we had eaten like kings during our trip in Guatemala.
Antigua is a like a small mountain jewel with spectacular scenery and shopping. There are flowers everywhere even on the tiled roofs! It is a photographers delight. I can't wait to go back and spend a week there and I will stay at this hotel again;it is only a short pleasant walk into the city center,secure with superb staff attention. Morning coffee was brought to us accompanied with piping hot milk, and if you've never tried Guatemalan coffee GO and GET some!!!

Very colonial setting - good food. Our guide reccommended not using pool. Very, very noisy at night in rooms on the outside edge. No screens, ac or fans, so you live with the bugs at night or roast. Locked in at night in the hotel complex for safety - but nowhere to go within easy walking distance anyway. The black mold on many of the bathroom walls created lots of problems for those on our tour who suffered from asthma. Would much rather pay a little more for more upscale hotel.
