Planned to spend 3 days in Lake Atitlan so we went to Trip Advisor and selected the Casa Palopo based on the reviews. We were initially booked into Room 5 but asked for a change when we read one review that said that there was no view from that room. They gladly changed us and we were in Room 2 which was spectacular as were ALL of the rooms in the hotel. We had to look at Room 5 which had a great view of the lake and volcano from the room which had an expansive balcony. The person who wrote the negative review did a disservice to the hotel. Everything about the hotel was wonderful including: location, service, food, etc. We stayed at the hotel for dinner every evening and had excellent meals. Prices for food and wine at the hotel were somewhat higher than in comparable restaurants in Antigua but well worth it based on the ambience. Sunsets were great as were the massages in our room.
