Peaceful beautiful garden setting with large lanai overlooking the lake. Only had a papaya jugo, which was offered with leche and chose no sugar. Drinks were large, but lacked papaya flavor due too much leche. I would suggest an option of naranja juice.

Very nice seating close to the waters edge, and excellent creamy key lime pie. (If they have it, they do run out!) Nice garden patio as well. The hotel looks nice, but is beside a hostel. It is tricky to find the first time, you have to literally walk down dirt paths and through a football field to reach it,... More

El Dragon Hotel and restaurant is pretty, clean and very quiet. If you are looking for an authentic experience you will find it via the good food and staff who do not speak or understand english very well (which is ok, it is after all, Guatemala). During my time in San Marcos there was a lot of heavy construction going... More

Excellent restaurant with delicious food, beautiful view and great service. The veggie burger must be one of the best ones I´ve ever tried, and I am vegetarian and a burger lover.

To visit this place just for the magical garden is worth it. The good food is a bonus! Once you get yourself into the place it's magnificent. Very beautuful. I ate here four times and every time I was happy. The pizzas and veggie burger are really delicious! My favorites. The pasta was a little average but the desserts are... More

Great veggie burger with pineapple and egg, huge portions, very slow service (an hour to get your food) but you can lounge on the big sofas overlooking the lake.

Food was great!! Key Lime Pie is a must!!! Pizza came out quick, other food took a little longer, but I think that is the norm for Guatemala :)

I walked all over San Marcos looking at several menus and decided to try this place after seeing ads for it. The location was a bit hard to find and strange to cross a deserted soccer field field with no clear signs was a bit odd. When I arrived I was amazed by the layout and beautiful flowers and gardens.... More

Great location on the beach in San Marcos, it looks like when they finish construction it will be a fun place to stop by for a drink and maybe food. Our 2 attempts to visit the Dragon ended up with not food was being served and no drinks at the bar by the beach. We would have to go up... More
