    5/5 Excellent

    Fantastic hotel in a beautiful tranquil location. The food in the restaurant was great too. It’s a shame the road to the hotel is not in a better state but it is worth the journey.

    A little slice of heaven in the rainforest

    Out of the three places we stayed in Guatemala (all very well reviewed), La Lancha was by far our favorite! It had local decorative touches and was so well integrated into the hilly landscape, but had all modern amenities (a/c, fan, hair dryer, accepts credit cards, even a funicular (little tram) to help you get back up from the lake as it is so steep!) and so many thoughtful touches (they have sunscreen at the pool, yoga mats everywhere, local corn flour cookies in your room that were magically refilled every time you got back to your room). The best part is the SERVICE -- they have a lot of staff for a small lodge so you are well-serviced, and the staff was incredibly friendly and knew who we were -- even proactively came up to us to discuss our departure arrangements. Also, after checking that it was available, they let us stay in our room for several hours after the official check-out time as we didn't need to leave for the airport till late afternoon! Also, our room was tidied up and the bed made every time we came back in, even if we just dipped out for 30 mins for breakfast -- truly exceptional attention and service! The only downsides are that it is a little remote (from the nearest town it's about a 20 min further drive around the lake) and that the restaurant ($20-29 for dinner entrees) and the transportation to/from the airport were a little on the pricy side, but still in the range of reasonable for this level. Excellent wifi. Wish we could have stayed longer!
