Rustic beauty; lakeside getaway

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: Pretty rooms, views, breakfast, gardens, the sauna.
When we arrived, we noticed one of the windows was broken and bugs were flying in. We asked for a new room. No problem. Actually, anything we asked for was no problem, as the staff were incredibly accommodating. Walking distance to Calle Santander and the playa of Panajachel. Or they're happy to call you a tuk tuk if you don't feel like walking (there are hills). Get one of the suites so that you get a kitchen because the restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch (we mostly just used the fridge so we could have beer and tequila at night). The gardens are beautiful and clearly very well cared for. If you want to get away from the noise of the city, but don't want to lose the amazing views, STAY HERE!

Great hotel along the water

Posted Feb 15, 2015
Pros: Loved it being on the water and its distance from town is good. Panajachel is a very loud, active town and the hotel is a quiet refuge from town
Cons: Staff could have been more accomodating, they didn't want to be as helpful i feel because we booked via expedia.
Location: Great to pick up a boat from the main dock and visit santiago Atitlan, San Pedro, and San Juan or cruz
The hotel is beautiful, almost looks like a historic building with beautiful architecture. Lovely pool, with well groomed grounds and beach.

New favorite hotel near Panajachel

Posted Dec 15, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness, different architecture, lake views, peace and quiet, private terraces in suites
Location: Dinner at downtown Panajachel in Circus Bar (good pizza and pastas) and boat ride to Posada de Santiago for must-have blue corn pancakes.
We travelled to San Buenaventura for a quick weekend get-a-way with the kids and had a surprisingly great time here! The two level suites were great, with wonderful views of the lake, fireplace, extra ponchos for the cold, good beds, fully equipped kitchen, great private terrace with carbon grill. The pool area is really nice, well kept gardens. Breakfast was a bit on the expensive side, but good, we had some delicious honey crepes. Hotel staff was scarce at night when we arrived buy took good care of us and even recommended a very friendly Tuk Tuk driver so we could go to Panajachel for dinner (short 5 min ride). Hotel is on the road before getting to downtown Panajachel so driving or Tuk Tuk rental is a must, walking to and from city to hotel might be dangerous at night. But on the upside, hotel it is so much more quiet and relaxing, with nice beach access to Lake Atitlan, than other hotels we've visited in Panajachel. Highly recommend two restaurants, Circus Bar in Panajachel and a 30-min boat ride to San Pedro to go have blue corn pancakes at Posada de Santiago Hotel y Restaurante. Walking across from hotel entrance is the Atitlan Nature Reserve with interesting activities like zip lines, wooded trails, hanging bridges and a Butterfly Preservation project.

GREAT LOCATION - POOR MAINTENANCE

Posted Jul 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel has great location, but need more maintenance. Is located in the middle of a forest and because is not constantly clean, there are spiders, etc... in the room. Beds are extremely hard and the pool was completely green, not welcoming my kids to get in. This hotel could be a very nice option if the administration put interest in keeping everything clean and improving the beds.

Buen hotel...

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Es un buen hotel. Muy bien ubicado a la orilla del lago Atitlan. El servicio es bueno pero no el mejor, como en otros lugares de Guatemala.

IT IS WORTH.......!

Posted Feb 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
Since our trip was out of season, looks like they were little out of awareness of our reservation, but besides that littler upss, everything was extraordinary beautiful. The view of the volcanoes, the lake, the surroundings, the infinity pool, the easy to get to going at the town, the kindness of the attendant to get the boat to going to the towns around the lake. WELL, THANK YUOU FOR MEKE OUR VACATIONS MEMORABLE. I wish I could share some pictures.

Overpriced

Posted Jan 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Nice location on lake, good food & service. Furniture falling apart & not repaired. At $250 USD per night in Guatemala, it was definitely overpriced.
