Perfect in every way. The view and accommodations were beyond expectation. I stayed in the Villa Jade and Bambu. Highly recommend either.

Nisa and Rosa went way out of there way to make us feel comfortable. Rosa comes to your room to make a beautiful breakfast for you while you enjoy your lake view. The property is pristine and all the villas are unique but share a spectacular view.

Liked: Staff & service
Service provided by the General Manager was excellent. But, there were numerous areas for improvement at the property. Only those that are able to climb and descend dozens of stairs will be able to access the property and this is not previously disclosed. Issues such as clogged shower drains, broken cork screw, broken binoculars, warped door, no blackout curtains, etc., should not occur at a property of this level.

The perfect place to stay
Beautiful rooms and grounds with amazing indoor/outdoor living. Location was perfect in that it was close to Panajachel but private and quiet. We walked into town once but then ended up mostly taking tuc tucs (which were cheap) as the road was fairly busy and took about 20-30 minutes. Nisa was a wonderful host and arranged everything for us in a very timely manner (rides to town, massages, kayak, food delivery). The rest of the staff was wonderful too and happy to help us with anything we needed. This was the last 3 nights of a 10 day trip and it was the perfect place to end the stay as we could not have been happier.
