This is a fantastic hotel! My room had a/c, a ceiling fan and was very clean. The bed was super comfy. There was a lovey lap pool outside my door that I swam in everyday. The breakfast buffet, which was included, was excellent, it served both local food and stuff for the picky tourist. It was very quiet as well,...

On all levels, The Portal Hotel Antigua is the best hotel in Guatemala, and one of the best I've had the pleasure of staying at in the world. Located on the outskirts of Antigua, it is a large, quiet, peaceful property that is beautifully landscaped, with a lovely pool and restaurant in the central courtyard. Service at the hotel, in...

I stayed at the porta for a friends wedding week. It was one of the best places I've ever stayed. First, the breakfasts are amazing. Cooked to order omlets, crepes, fresh fruit and juices to name a few. Second, my room was amazing, near the pool and it had a little patio to have my morning coffee on. It was...

The Porta Hotel in Antigua Guatemala is one of the most enjoyable properties I have ever had the pleasure to experience. The room was fabulous, opening out onto the enclosed courtyard just as in a traditional Spanish hacienda. The staff was a pleasure.

We were touring Guatemala with Caravan Tours & stopped for 2 nights. All our meals were at the hotel. Our room was classic Colonial with current amentities. Everything was clean with courteous staff. The SPA provided a wonderful respite from touring.

We recently spent two nights at the charming Porta Hotel Antigua. It was a wonderful hotel. The grounds, room and staff were wonderful. The location was very centrally located and easy to walk to all the sights and shops. We had a great time.

We have been in a number of places around the world, and the only place that came near our experience at Porta Hotel was at a posada in Spain -- and that was because our balcony opened onto a sweeping view of the Mediterranean!

The facility is very nice. We stayed here for a destination wedding and couldn't have picked a nicer place. The bar and restaurant are excellent. The grounds are beautiful and there are many tours available with pickup at the gate. Although the room is very nice with many amenities, I would have appreciated air conditioning. It seems that some rooms...
