We were greatly pleased, and slightly surprised, by how wonderful our highly active trip to Guatemala was: Antigua, the Tikal area, and Lake Atitlan were all fantastic. But when we return, we will probably head straight for the Hotel Atitlan and do nothing but stare at the lake and volcanos from the beautiful gardens and chow down on simple stuff...

Situated directly on Lake Atitlan near Panajachel, the hotel has an old-world feel, inside and out, but with modern amenities. With a near perfect climate, the placement of the hotel on the lake and the volcanos as its backdrop, just it can't be beat. Firstly, the grounds are stunning. They are well maintained and pristine. The interior of the hotel...

A faded hotel, which was clean and presentable but DARK, Spanish heavy dark wood furniture in the common areas and as it is really the only decent hotel in the area caters to tour groups. Lunch outside was fine, menu ok especially for children but dining in the evening was less than satisfactory. Forced to eat inside because it was...

The hotel staff couldn't be nicer. Location, extremely nice right on the lake with its beautiful garden. The food was not so good, they don't know how to serve a good French toast and the ommellets weren't great . The bedroom door was letting the cold wind come into the room from the hallway, very cold. The bathroom need some...

I stayed at this hotel as part of the Caravan Tour. When you drive in the grounds are spectacular. The lobby is filled with Guatemalan pieces that the owner has collected and this lead you to the restaurant and bar area. Tastefully decorated and inviting.From there you can walk to the pool and hot tub area. Inviting lounges and tables...

Best views on the lake but that is about the only thing to recommend this old property. Rooms are "quaint" and comfortable - the bathrooms however are very original 1970's and tired. No light in the shower. Hot water only milding warm. Service and food disappointing - we had to constantly flag down waiters and there were only a few...

Very picturesque location on the shores of Lake Atitlan. A 10-15 minute walk to Pana (some is uphill). Beautiful grounds including a lovely garden with tropical birds, infinity-like hot tub/jacuzzi overlooking lake. Rooms are nicely appointed. Great breakfast buffet and an international menu.

I have reviewed a number of hotels over the years and generally I have been very happy with my experiebces and have given positive reviews. This is an exception: We arranged for the hotel to pick us up from the airport and this was all done appropriately. After about 3 hours. the transport arrived at the hotel at 10:30 pm...

Hotel Atitlan is an amazing place with manicured gardens, a pool that overlooks that lake and a good (but overpriced) restaurant. Expect to pay U.S. prices for everything, but it is well worth it. A beautiful place to stay. Within easy walking distance to the nature reserve.

This hotel is beautifully located above Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. It is a new hotel built in the charming Spanish Colonial style and filled with reminders of that era. Many are for sale in the gift shop but also distributed around the building. Beautiful gardens are on and near the grounds to explore. The dining room has an excellent buffet...
