What a beautiful little hotel! All of the rooms have amazing views of the lake and the property itself was so green and well-kept. We enjoyed laying in the hammocks by the water. There are lots of quirky little restaurants and bars nearby and we had a lot of fun exploring San Pedro. They make you take a selfie for...

We loved it here, the view from our room was incredible. The gardens are so beautiful i spent lot of time relaxing in hammocks and my partner loved the free kayaks. Everyone who worked there was very sweet and helpful and made our stay a pleasure. We would definitely stay here again!

Many rooms have a great view of the lake. The staff is helpful. There is a fridge with serve yourself beer (honor system with a camera that checks your honor). I take the back rooms to save some $ and then I sit out in front sometimes to take in the view. Lots of very close restaurants, a museum. local...

Our room was very comfortable with a view to die for. We looked right out onto Lake Antiva. The grounds are nice, too, with plenty of chairs to sit in and stare out over the lake. Lots of space in the lush gardens to wander around in. Folks in my group wound up taking turns in the hammocks. It's a...

Comfortable rooms with views of the lake. We were on the first level which meant there were gardens in front of our rooms with hammocks we could use. The staff is very helpful. There was an above-ground swimming pool but the water was too cold to get in. No food is offered at the hotel but there are good restaurants...

We stayed here for a week in the apartments. This hotel is more like a resort and offers respite from the noise and bustle of the busy town. Located along side the lake, the grounds are immaculate and inviting, equipped with lounging and eating areas and an above ground pool. We used the resort kayaks on a few occasions to...

Beautifully cradled in lush gardens, this little motel offers wonderful views upon the lake, facing east. The complementary filtered water, coffee and WiFi make for a comfortable stay. Unfortunately, the wifi connection won't reach the rooms and you'll find yourself streaming from the communal courtyard by the reception. As for the rooms themselves, they push the eco-friendliness a little too...

VIEWS are by far the best part of this hotel, but they're not all it offers. To really appreciate this place, you've got to compare it to what's around you in Guatemala, not to America. Sakcari has many features that are very hard to find around Lake Atitlan, and Guatemala in general. If those features matter to you, you'll love...

This has always been my go to hotel when I go to San Pedro, it might be in the middle of everything in town, but out of the way enough so that the only thing you will hear at night is the sound of the lake, very beautiful gardens all around. and a beautiful view of the lake.

Great place to stay in San Pedro. Walking around was very happy with our accommodation decision. Get a tuk tuk here if arriving by bus, easy to find when you know where you're going but not so straightforward after a hot bus ride from Antigua. Rooms look onto the lake with lots of hammocks, you'll not get scenery like it!...
