In short, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It's good for couples as well as for families. Its best features are its location and the pool, but the rooms are nice, too, all with good views toward the lake and the volcanos. The food is also above average.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that's on one of the upper floors for better views.

Our family stayed at the Porta Hotel as participants in a large weekend conference. The rooms, meals, and service were all outstanding, and the staff saw to it that everything went like clockwork for the different conference activities. The hotel and grounds overlook the breathtaking lake and surrounding volcanoes. Security wasn't a problem, even though the hotel is located right next to the bustling shoreline. I'll admit that the cost probably would've been a little prohibitive for us if we were looking for a place to stay on our own.

We had a very pleasant 2-night stay. Location is excellent with great view of the lake and volcanoes from your balcony; rooms are spacious and well furnished, price is very reasonable. Had a mix-up at check-in, which soon got straightened out, and had to get defective room fan replaced and coffeemaker was missing, but these were quickly taken care of by staff. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

Great location. Easy walk to town centre. Amazing views of lake and volcanoes. Pick up some beer at a tienda and enjoy the sunset from your balcony. Breakfast buffet was excellent. The cinnamon buns were hot out of the oven. Dinner included salad bar and choice of entrees brought to table. Rooms a bit dated. Would have liked safe and fridge in room but beds were comfortable and that view can't be beat.

We spent the long New Years weekend at the Porta Del Lago, and stayed in one of the junior suites on the top level of the hotel. The balcony had excellent views of the lake and volcanos -- sitting on the balcony during sunrises and sunsets was a highlight of the trip. The hotel itself is a bit dated, with older construction and outdated carpeting. It didn't fit into the town like its sister hotel in Antigua does. The restaurant was extremely expensive, although the food (buffet) and service was good. Nice pool for those who want to spend their days lounging. We were very disappointed with the tour company in the hotel -- Rogers Tours -- we paid for a lake tour of three towns and did not get what we were promised even though we had it in writing. The hotel helped us get a discount to somewhat make up for the bad tour, however, and the hotel staff were extremely accommodating.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher floor to get a fantastic view.

I changed hotels from a cheap included hotel on my tour to the Porta Hotel Del Lago, I was not disappointed! Had breathtaking views from the balcony overlooking the lake, found the room to be clean, quiet and in an ideal location near to the shops but far enough away to make it feel tranquil.

Staff were friendly and made me feel welcome, laundry was promptly returned. If I were to be picky - only has a shower (no bath) the hot water was rather hit and miss and would recommend eating breakfast out rather than in. Having said all that it was the best hotel I stayed in (by a long way) during my tour of Mexico/Guatemala and would thoroughly recommend it.

The hotel is beautifully located close to the lake. Food is good, the rooms are nice with great lake views, and the town center is a short 5 minute walk away--far enough to ensure a quite stay.
