We stayed at this hotel for one night in March 2014. The setting on a cliff overlooking the lake and volcanos is spectacular. It is a hike to get from the boat up to the office and then the room, but it was worth it. The room was beautifully decorated with authentic Guatemalan artifacts and had numerous windows overlooking the lake to capture the magic of the spot. The dinner was communal and we met several very interesting people. The food was excellent. Breakfast was served at individual tables and there was a wide range of choices.
The staff was not particularly welcoming when we arrived--something we found to be an anomaly compared to our experiences elsewhere in Guatemala with the exception of Tikal, but their demeanor improved when they were compelled to remove and subsequently repair the door to our room because of a faulty latch system.
Overall, a very good experience.
