2/5

I was given a different room than what i booked & paid for and was told that it was still the same price when i asked for a refund for the difference. Expedia advertised that there’s free wifi but there is no wifi. It’s a lovely place to stat but wouldnt recommend if you are looking for a clean, neat, private room. Bedsheet was not the cleanest, more of warm shower than hot shower, room door and lock does not really work perfectly, you can still break through the windows. Windows do not lock or close perfectly.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous property with a fun vibe. Good place to meet fellow travellers. The staff is mostly English speaking volunteers. Decent food, cute bar. Right near the ferry dock so it's easy to visit other towns on the lake (we liked San Marcos and San Juan and hated San Pedro). Two nights was enough but we honestly could have stayed a week and just relaxed. It's a bit pricier than other places, but I understand why. Worth it!

5/5 Excellent

Right off the boat, it is right there after 10 steps. The view is amazing, and the food is great. All the staff members are so friendly and considerate, I didn't plan to stay here more than one night but I extended my stay. I first thought there is nothing to do at Santa Cruz (yes, it is true) so I thought about going to other villages, but it was not worth of moving around to different hotels. Just stay at one stop and make trips to other villages on the lake.

Around the room there were garbage, empty glass bottles. Somebody came to our deck in the middle of the night.
