I loved Hotel Toliman. The food is excellent and they have their organic little and gorgeous farm to grow up their own organic vegetables and also you can choose your own "mojarra" (it´s a fish, my favorite dish!). The rooms are very cozy and you feel very welcome. The gardens, the swimming pool, the views and enjoy a kayaks ride...

As we pulled up, we were unsure what to expect since the outside can be misleading as to what lies inside. Lucky for us, Alexis came out to greet us and welcomed us to take a peek at the rooms and...

The rooms, of which many offer a view of the lake, are comfortable, clean, and attractive with a colonial feel. The bathrooms are updated with great water pressure. The grounds are spacious...

Marisas565, San Lucas can leave many people and families enchanted, relaxed, and feeling as though they are seeing parts of Guatemala they would have not seen otherwise. It seems as though you were able to view much of the grounds and enjoy many of what our property has to offer. Whenever you decide you wish to come back to the...

We stayed here while on a Habitat for Humanity trip. it is a beautiful and well-kept hotel. The rooms are comfortable. Staff is very helpful, and the food is excellent. It is lovely to eat both on the deck outside facing the serene lake, or inside the restaurant. Much of the food comes out of their organic garden, which you...

My wife and I spend a week at Hotel Toliman. The hotel grounds are beautiful and well kept. Staff were always very helpful and treated us with impeccable attention. Dinning at the restaurant is a must, fresh food (from organic garden ran by hotel staff) and astonishing views of Lake Atitlan. While it is tempting not to leave the calmness...
