As an experienced traveler i expected much more, especially for the price they c harge- mind...

I highly recommend this hotel. The view is amazing and the food just as great! I will be staying here on my next trip to Lake Atitlan! Getting there is easy! Just grab a boat from any of the towns around the lake.

This was my second trip to Casa del Mundo. 1st visit was only one night so I was thrilled to be able to go back for 3 nights and 4 days! We stayed in Room 20- it was great. Spectacular views of the lake and the staff is unbelievable- so helpful! The food was absolutely delicious and they offer vegetarian...

La Casa has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. My husband and I visited on a very belated honeymoon. I was blown away by the tranquil atmosphere- we spent a lot of time relaxing and reading, we jumped in the lake, the dinners were amazingly elegant and delicious. The coffee in the morning was...

The place has a stunning location, and the rooms are very cute. We stayed in number 10 which was adequate for a couple. Breakfast and lunch are a la carte and both were delicious and very large portions. Dinner is 100 quetzals and there is just one veggie option and one animal food option, and we found the portions to...

I really loved this hotel. It was a bit difficult to get there once we got off the bus from Antiqua. We were swarmed by boat drivers that stated the last of the public boats were done at 3:30pm. Liars, they go until 7:30. Don't pay more than 20 Quetzales per the hotel and we stuck to it. The climb...

My husband and I stayed at La Casa del Mundo for five nights. Because I waited until May to make reservations, we stayed in two different rooms. Both rooms had a spectacular view of Lake Atitlan. This secluded hotel is built into the cliffs facing the lake. Lush terraced gardens surrounded each room. Rooms are decorated Guatemalan style with bright...

We visited some time ago, but we still recall this place as a highlight on a highlight trip. I highly recommend you take a week and let the world go by. Take the water taxi to see some of the other villages around Lake Atitlan. There are stairs, but you're going to need the exercise after eating there.

This is a very nice property with views that are spectaclular. We stayed in room 11 which is a suite and is quite a climb (137 stairs I believe). It had a nice private balcony also. The hot water was intermittent, which was the only drawback to the room. Hugo and staff are very friendly and helpful. They are more...

We are glad to hear about your experience at La Casa del Mundo, and are happy to hear that that our staff took really good care of you and that you enjoyed the rooms, natural surroundings and the food. Regarding the credit cards, being located so far away from town makes it very hard to take them, but we appreciate...
