Words cannot describe how gorgeous this property is. Literally feet off the water of on of the most beautiful lakes on earth. The views and property are only matched by the amazing hospitality of Dita and Miguel, who took great care of us before, during, and after the reservation. Can't recommend enough!
Miguel and Dita's offering is perfect if you are looking for exceptional views, a peaceful locale (located .9 miles outside San Marcos proper - which is easily accessed by walking, tuk tuk or boat) and hosts who are friendly and helpful in a very attuned manner. The accommodations are very clean, spacious and bright. The breakfasts are made to order - fresh and healthy. Really a tremendous experience!
We stayed at the white room for three nights after a tough trek from Xela to San Pedro. I can't say enough about how comfortable and nurtured we felt. We stayed on the lower floor - facing out on Lake Atitlan and Volcan San Pedro.
The room was lovely - clean and modern with high ceilings and a king bed. It was decorated with Guatemalan art including masks and tapestries.
The bathroom was huge and had a great shower.
Dita, the charming owner, really made us feel at home and went out of her way to make us feel at home - even bringing me aloe Vera from the garden to help with my sunburn.
We had two dinners on top of the breakfasts (included) at the hotel. All our meals were delicious and vegetarian (as per my request.) We enjoyed drinking glasses of Malbec as we watched the sunset and were spoiled with cups of house blended herbal teas.
We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back!
Dita and her beautiful family could not have been more lovely ad accommodating. The White Room was clean, and the decor so unique. The view is what you live for on the lake and Dita's place has it all. Swim right off the deck from your room, eat home made breakfast every day and we LOVED Dita's cooking. She was kind enough to keep us company and share a wine, and even a tape measure for my graduation hat measuring!
It has been a year since we stayed (we have been busy) but to date my husband and I dream of returning! Stay here, you will not regret it.
Was perfect. After some difficulty finding the location it was heaven. The place is very beautiful. We go there on the last launch and hadn't eaten and Dita was nice enough to make us a beautiful salad and some of her homemade bread with her coconut oil. The best. Also her 10 year old daughter was so lovely and so helpful. She interacted with my husband and I and we loved it. The views are so amazing right on the water. The room is very large with a very large private bathroom. It's a fantastic place and I would highly recommend and I hope to return.

What a fantastic spot! The White Room at Casa Rosada is right on the water and has an amazing view of the lake and surrounding volcanoes. Our room was spotless, well appointed and comfortable. The private patio was ideal for relaxing and enjoying the excellent breakfasts that were provided by our host. It also allowed for easy access if you wished to enjoy a swim in the warm waters of the lake. A private dock provided simple boat access to the lakeside villages. Dita, our host, was very helpful and friendly. On our first day we were greeted at the dock and invited into her house for coffee. What a pleasure. She provided an abundance of advice, answered our questions, and helped us to arrange activities.
Mucho gracias, Dita. We truly appreciate your warmth and generosity and all that you have done for us.
