The room with an incredible view of Lake Atitlan, the chef and restaurant of the highest quality, the management friendly and accommodating for tours of the villages! Highly recommend this beautiful and unique hotel. Superb service...

This small hotel overlooks the infamous with the most spectacular views possible, the rooms and overall look of the hotel is beautiful. I would recommend this place to anybody.

Our stay at Casa Palopo was absolutely wonderful! We were greeted with a delicious hibiscus punch and shown to our funky chic room with a gorgeous view of the lake. We were there in the off season, so we were 1 of 2 guests at the hotel so we had the place to ourselves most of the time. The dining...

Originally went in Nov of 2009 and planned on using the hotel as a base to explore Guatemala and were totally blown away by the beauty of both the hotel and the lake. Got so taken by the view that we ended up changing our plans and stayed within walking distance of the hotel for the week. Felt like we...

Stayed 6 lively nights at the Casa Palopo and was in awe of the decor, the food and the location. The grounds are impecably maintained, the customer service was outstanding from check-in to arranging tours and transportation. The food was fabulous and I was a bit leary as I had read other reviews. I can not justify any type of...

We were looking for a quite peaceful getaway and this place was perfect. We just needed a quiet place to recharge our energy. The hotel is quiet, out of the way, and have a well trained staff. They are there when you need them, and will leave you alone if you don't. The beds and linens are top-class. Remember this...

Great place. No bugs, great food, good location. Only thing is that it's so secluded that it's costs a lot to get around. We stayed 4 nights and for 2 nights we were the only ones there. Be aware of extra charges! We got a ride from airport to hotel and back and they charged a tip of 10 percent!...
