I think my title is sufficient. Just to add that the owner and staff could not be more helpful. Very good food. Amazing situation. My only fault being that I booked rather late for a room with a shared bathroom and found myself in a room with four beds and not one of the little cottages I dreamed of staying...

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful. The 170 steps up to our room at first was a shock but we got used to it quick. The rooms are beautiful with an outdoor shower. Wonderful hot shower with perfect pressure. No mosquitoes too so it was great. Only disappointing thing is that there isn't a view of the...

We were blown away with everything about this place. The view from our lovely little cabin was breathtaking. Watching the sun rise and set over the lake and volcanoes every day was incredible. The food was absolutely delicious and we ended up eating here everyday so we didn't miss out! The staff were really friendly and welcoming. We loved the...

Not many people succeed in designing/managing a Hotel like IslaVerde, I've worked for human resources in great hotel areas and have never found such skilled and considerate work team. Yes indeed, IslaVerde has a lovely lake view, great yoga venue and serves amazing food, yet what really makes this place special, is each one of those working to make this...

Isla Verde in Lago Atitlan was our last stop on a long and tiring road trip following the Maya archeological sites. It is the perfect setting to take time for slow cooked food, massage, reading, kayaking and contemplating the remarkable view of the lake. Isla Verde is a small and unasuming small hotel by the lake. If you want to...

Got to be in good physical condition to hike up the hill to your casita, but the views from up there are worth it. They serve food there and it's good. Never got sick after the fresh fruit and licuados. Had a wonderful beet soup there one night. Food is served on a deck right on the lake. Yes, it's...

I loved this place -- fresh food grown in the garden and prepared deliciously, treehouse-like rooms with solar showers and adorable wood finish, lots of little outdoor nooks and resting spots to hide out in and read books, and of course the magical Lake Atitlan as its front yard. There's a shared computer in the lobby that works and is...

The rooms and view are great. The yoga is wonderful. The service is slow and the food/extra charges are expensive. Although the room prices are reasonable, there are many other fees and steep food prices to consider.

Por el consejo de un viejo conocido, llegamos al hotel. Mis amigos y yo quedamos fascinados con el lugar. Al ser guiados hacia nuestras habitaciones, recorrimos un camino engalanado por un amplia variedad de vegetación, lo cual hizo posible avistar algunas aves y un sinnúmero de mariposas. Las habitaciones están dispuestas en una colina, lo que hizo que tuviéramos la...

Islaverde has a great capacity to do the little things well wether it's amazing views even in the shower, to a quaint candle lit ambiance when the sun goes down. Although the food may not be cheap in the Guatemalan context it is worth every cent as its grown right on site, uses seasonal ingredients, very wholesome and of course...

All are set on a hill, which ensures every one of them has a breathtaking view of Lake Atitlan, while being hidden and private from the rest of the hotel. Our rooms are decorated in a simple yet hip style, with Mayan woven materials and naïf paintings.Sunrise, sunset, midday or midnight, our lakeside lounge is the perfect place to sunbathe, go swimming, sip on a cocktail or a fresh fruit smoothie or just take in the majestic beauty of Lake Atitlan. Prefer a more secluded, private spot? You´ll find hammocks and loungers tucked into lush nooks all throughout our beautiful tropical gardens, and a wonderful yoga studio overlooking the lake which is free for our guests to enjoy.The patio below our slow-food restaurant is the ultimate spot to feast your eyes and your senses; come and enjoy what according to many— Rough Guide amongst others—is some of the best food you can find in Guatemala.
