We are a 76-year-old Australian couple who came on a five-day trip to Guatemala based on the recommendation and photos of a friend. We were a bit apprehensive given the warning on travel advisory websites. We need not have worried. Because of excellent tour guides, we were complexly safe. In Antigua, we could safely walk the streets at night alone....

This was honestly a trip of a lifetime experience staying at Casa Palopo. We arrived by boat, the views of the lake and volcano were incredible. The food was out of this world dreamy, the wine superb. We walked to local villages exploring in the day, sunbathed by the pool looking out at the lake and volcano, yoga on the...

My wife and I stayed here last week and loved it. Great little boutique hotel with a gorgeous setting on Lake Atitlan. There are only 5-6 rooms and one 3-bedroom villa. Open air restaurant overlooks the lake with volcano views, and a nice lounge area with fireplace inside. They even have a nice pool & deck area on hot days....

Casa Palopó is a cozy, 7-bedroom luxury retreat perched above the majestic Lake Atitlan. Its privileged hillside location offers sprawling lake and volcano views from every room and nearly every point on the property. The newer 2-bedroom villa with private helipad and infinity pool is located on a hill above the main hotel and is a perfect option for those...

The views here are beautiful and the service is excellent. It is a bit expensive but when you look at the amazing location you don't care. It's not situated exactly in the lake but they do have private access if you climb a lot of stairs. It's now kid friendly due to the stairs and other delicate things. I Would...

I loved my experience there! its a really nice resort, small, and no shops that you are able to really walk to. Great food and views of the lake. You can walk down to the lake. Rooms were luxury. Good to go with someone, like pareja/romantic trip

We were 13 people from my family visiting the restaurant in April 2017. We had made a reservation for lunch. One person ordered ravioli. The quantity of the food turned out to be microscopic. It was like a small starter. While others ordered starter and main course, this person only ordered that ravioli. As we had ordered many courses and...

I debated about where to stay in the Lake Atitlan region during our Guatemala vacation. Casa Palopo receives excellent reviews and press, but I was worried that its small size (just 7 rooms) would feel too much like a bed-and-breakfast to us, so I chose a master suite at Hotel Atitlan (which was a surprisingly beautiful room in an idyllic...
