“Great for kids too”
Reviewed 25 February 2007

This place was great for kids too. Not too far from the center, the staff was very friendly and the pool was cold, but nice. The kids loved the big hammocks and every morning there was a great breakfast that was included in the price.

Reviewed 17 January 2007

I'm not sure I can add much to what's been said already, but we highly recommend this small B&B if you are travelling in Antigua. It is very convenient, relaxing and has a gracious staff. The gardens are beautiful and there is a nice heated pool surrounded by comfortable chairs and hammocks - very handy when travelling with kids. Good coffee is plentiful and breakfast is served with a beautiful volcano view.

We spent our first night in Antigua at this charming bed and breakfast. The staff were very accomodating- our room was not ready but they held our luggage, served us drinks and we were able to relax at the pool on shaded hammocks. The gardens are pretty with great volcano views. Our room had a fireplace and a large bathroom- it was a bit noisy since it was on the street side. This hotel is only three blocks from the main square.

  • Liked — location close to the main square
  • Disliked — noise at night from the street- could not keep window shutters open to air out the room

Spent a week at the Mansion del Pensativo and adored it. Great location two blocks from the square, gorgeous garden and views, friendly service, luxurious accomodations, tasty breakfasts, and tranquil atmosphere. Try to get suites 1 or 4. Highly recommend this outstanding B&B. Can't wait to return.

I have stayed full weeks at the Pensativo in 2003, 2004 and 2005. This is one of my favorite small hotels - more like a deluxe B&B - in the world. The grounds are impeccable. The suites are luxurious and clean and the staff is attentive to all your needs. You are simply a guest in a very luxurious home and feel totally secure as well.

This home is the essence of feng shui and zen all wrapped up in one package. The gardens and plantings are extraordinary. The view of the volcano will overwhelm you.

It is centrally located to everything so it is easy to make walking excursions for shopping and dining.

The Pensativo is more expensive - spoil yourself - You will not be disappointed.
