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...

Great views from every rooms. Great grounds, pool area and fantastic botanical gardens. Very quite hotel. Nice staff. Continental breakfast is correct. Evening meal was ok, a bit overpriced. Outside Panajachel. Room would benefit from a coat of paint.

The best thing about this hotel is the wonderful view on the lake and the surrounding volcanoes. The gardens are beautiful, make sure you arrive sufficiently early to be able to explore them. Food was OK, service was good, and so was the room.

The location of this hotel was probably one of the best in the vicinity, their gardens were well manicured and lush with local plants. It was one of the older hotels in the area. Our room was at the end of the corridor along the corner of the right side wing. It had a sit out patio with beautiful views...
