My wife and I spent two nights at Casa Palopo during our honeymoon and it was truly incredible. The hotel itself is gorgeous, with many sitting areas in which to relax and take in your surroundings. The terrace was very serene with a beautiful view. My wife and I enjoyed most of our meals here overlooking the lake. The service...

Casa Palopo Dining Experience was the worse food I have ever had. For those not familiar with Casa Palopo let us offer a short introduction before we get into the food and dining experience. Did we complain? Based on calling the resort we find that complaints appear to go unnoticed. So the point of the blog post. Originally a private...

Beautiful property right on Lake Atitlan. The service is outstanding...you blink and whatever you ask for appears. We had one of the suites with a private terrace and a view of the lake...best parts of the day were waking up with room service on the balcony and sipping rum (Zacapa!) by the fire at night. The decor is outstanding, stylish...but...

If you are ready to relax, unwind, and unplug in an intimate and beautiful setting, then Casa Palopó is for you. With only 9 suites (including 2 in a separate private villa) on the property, you may feel as if you are in your own private luxury home on the shore of Lake Atitlan. Expect a world class restaurant, magnificent...

After experiencing a breathtaking (literally and figuratively!) hike up Volcano Pacayo... we travelled to Lake Atitlan for a weekend to have our breath taken away -again- by the view upon this magnificent lake. The excellent room and location were surpassed only by the superb service provided by their top notch staff. You want to kayak? No problem, they will arrange....

We stayed at Casa Palopo for two nights. The hotel used to be a holiday home for one of Guatemala's rich families but has now been turned into a beautiful hotel. It is quite unique and you do feel like you are staying in a beautiful home. The hotel is up on the hill side and has a stunning out...

Very nice and intimate hotel with spectacular view on Lake Atitlan. Several rooms all very large and fully equipped. You can just relax on the room balcony or at the restaurant looking at the lake and the volcanos around. The rooms are perfect and the cousin is superb. At nigh you can see the lights of the villages surrounding the...

Almost a perfect small and intimate hotel which reminded us very much of the Hotel Minervetta in Sorrento. Unfortunately views come from being on hillsides and, like the Minervetta, this had a lot of steps, but, to reassure potential guests, as a 64 year old unfit asthmatic, I did not have any problem with them – one can always stop,...
