Wow, Bill and Rosy have built a mgical resort on the shores of Lake Atitlan. The guest rooms are cozy with authentic touches. Every thing we ate in the restaurant was wonderful. Crave a snack? The nachos are amazing. The staff is warm and friendly, and eager to welcome you. There is plenty to do here, visit the nearby villages,...

It was clear from the moment we arrived that the hotel owners really care about their guests. The grounds are very well kept and beautiful, the office and restaurant are comfortable and pleasant, the staff was helpful and nice, and the rooms were awesome. There are a lot of steps to the various rooms (you might consider one of the...

I've traveled the world and extensively in Guatemala. I have been returning to Casa del Mundo for years. It's an absolutely special place. As the hotel is nested on a cliff, many rooms and terraces have fantastically inspirational views of Lake Atitlan. Food is delicious, evening meals served home style offer nice way to mingle with other guests. Moderately priced...

Wow! What a gem! So quaint, beautiful, peaceful! The staff was delightful. Got there by boat. Sits literally on side of mountain on the water. Beautiful greenery. Simple rooms. The food & drinks were great. Would go back in a second!

Found out about it on Trip Advisor, had no idea such a beautiful place existed in Lake Atitlan, and has been there for ever! Rooms are cozy and very well decorated, each room has it's own balcony and private view to the lake, service is great, food is delicious and prices are realistic, the experience pays for itself. Got to...

I fell in love with the Lake here. I was in room 15 and it was perfect for one person, two would even be fine. The private balcony was amazing and the room was so quaint and nicely decorated. I immediately felt comfortable here. The bathroom and room was very clean and in great condition. I did not think the...

Pleasant stay on the lake and easy to visit nearby villages by boat taxi. The views are amazing. Comfortable rooms. Food is okay. Staff is well trained. We loved the hot tub in the evening overlooking the lake I did not like the spiders

We stayed 3 nights at Lake Atitlan area during our trip to Guatemala. One day we went to have a lunch at La Casa del Mundo Hotel. I don't know about the hotel inside, but the place of this property is absolutely marvelous. To sit on the balcony, have a lunch and enjoy the view of the lake – couldn't...
