The location of this hotel is perfect, it's close enough to town but away from all the party noise. It's a little expensive but well worth the extra bucks. The lake views are breathtaking and the rooms are clean and very spacious. The American guy at the front desk is also realy nice and helpfull. They have free coffee in the morning and a fridge that you can use. Also try the Italian place next door!

The hotel sakcari was the perfect place to spend two nights in San Pedro. The location is fantastic as it is right on the lake and in walking distance of some great cafés and restaurants. The manager was very helpful in providing us with a map of the local area and suggested places to eat and drink. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are planning a trip to San Pedro.

Mateo and crew are some of the nicest folks in San Pedro. My only complaint would be that the beds were quite firm... I prefer a softer mattress. But since I wake with the sun I stepped outside and napped on a hammock until I was ready to float along the calm waters on one of their free kayaks! Truly a great place to stay.

This is the best place to stay in San Pedro. Quiet and serene, on the shores of Lake Atitlan. The gardens are so beautifully tended, you may not want to leave the grounds, There are hammocks for reading or napping and kayaks to go take out on the lake.
Matt and Justin, the hosts, are friendly and helpful.
We've stayed there five times and love it more each time!

Room Tip: All the rooms have amazing views of Lake Atitlan.

This place is very relaxing. Lovely gardens, hammocks, kayaks, great view, good location. Can't fault it.Idea Connection is a nice local cafe,, and make sure you buy some Pan De Banane while you're in town. It's delicious.

Rooms are big and well cleaned. The staff is very friendly and they help you to meet guides for tours, then you dont have to buy from an agency. They give you free coffee during the morning and you can use their fridge. Good shower. Kayaks for free is a very nice experience, you can paddle inside the floated houses. Bad internet connection. The rest of the city got good internet everywhere.

We stayed at Hotel Sak Cari for five days. This hotel is owned by a Guatemalan, but Justin and Matt (Americans) work at the hotel reception and they were great. This hotel is located next to lake and has a beautiful lake view. We love it! Room and bathroom are clean. They provide free filtered water. Wifi is good. Quite atmosphere. This was our base. We took a boat trip to visit nearby towns like San Marcos, Santiago, and Panajachel. We went to Connection, Italian restaurant, for our meals. This restaurant is owned by Italians and has good foods. We also went to El Barrio for drink/dinner. This place is owned by a Canadian. Good atmosphere and excellent chicken wings and nachos. Both places are one minute walking distance. We saw a small black scorpion outside our room, so look at your shoes before putting your feet into it. You will find scorpions at every hotel here.
