We had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Sakcari on a recent visit to San Pedro. The hotel had been recommended by a local friend, and we weren't disappointed. The hotel was very reasonably priced, clean and pleasant. High points were the beautifully planted grounds with lovely flowers and plants and multi-leveled terraced gardens all the way down to the lakeshore; you could pick your "place" either laying in a hammock on the upper level, or kicking back in a chair lakeside under a shaded trellis with climbing vines. Did I say that every room has a full view of Lake Attilan? All the rooms face the beautiful lake and surrounding mountains and volcanoes. There's also roof access for even further views; while we were there, the very kind owner joined us one evening on the roof, started a small campfire in a "rooftop" fire pit and encouraged us to take it all in as we drank beer and watched the approaching lightening storm (which miraculously never brought rain our way!) Matthew at the front desk, including the owner couple, were very pleasant and clearly took a lot of pride in their lovely property. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting San Pedro.
