With incredible views and artful decor, this restaurant could get away with serving tourist food. Instead, it offers creative cooking and excellent service. Let me repeat, the service was truly a cut above. The food was served surprisingly quickly and stylishly. The menu is fairly short but combines local flavors with lighter preparation styles.

This is a small but absolutely charming hotel. It has a good restaurant, a large and comfortable sitting room with a fire that does get lit every evening, a superb terrace overlooking Lake Atitlan, and a real feeling of warmth from all the staff. We stayed for three nights in a large, well-appointed bedroom with picture windows and its own...

We stayed at Casa Palopo for 3 nights with our 2 teenage kids. 5 to 7 nights or more would have been better. From the moment we walked in we were taken by the charm of this small hotel with its warm friendly staff and stunning lake views. The manager, Jiff, is an absolute gem with her great understanding of...

My family of 3 stayed at Casa Palopo just before Christmas and had an outstanding experience! We chose the option of flying to Casa Palopo from the Guatemala City airport in a helicopter - a bit extravagant but worth EVERY penny! The staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Every meal was delicious. The view from the...

Stunning hotel with the most beautiful scenery, and not soul in sight! Seriously... not a soul in sight. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the rooms were beautiful. Dinner time unfortunately lacked a bit of atmosphere as we were the only people there and it was super quiet. But for a quiet, romantic getaway.... it would be idyllic....

I was planning a day-trip to Atitlan to see a series of potential venues for my wedding in Guatemala. The night before around midnight, somebody mentioned Casa Palopo as an option. Given the limitation on time, I was not able to make an appointment with the hotel. I figured it wasn't going to be a big deal since we'd at...
