The hotel location is amazing, the views spectacular, and the food delicious. We were initially unsure about the boat ride to the hotel, but quickly found out that it was inexpensive and easy. We also were unsure about the group dinners, but also found those to be delicious and a great experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We...

View and location can't be beat. Staff were very pleasant, helpful when asked, and tried hard. The food was more than adequate but not great. I found breakfast better than dinner. I'm not a fan of a fixed time to eat dinner and "family style". There is somewhat a sense of "nickle and diming" for items - even for what...

“Very Nice - but not Outstanding” We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed the views and the natural surroundings of Lake Atitlán and that our staff took really good care of you! I’m sorry to hear about the food, being isolated makes it a little harder to prepare dinner, which is why we can’t offer many options; but...

Casa del Mundo offers that amazing get away you go to Guatemala to find. Perched on Lake Atitlan, it offers great views, great service and and escape from the real world.

This place is just ridiculously beautiful; from the boat ride to get to it, the service, the rooms, the views, and the food (GREAT FOOD!!). Everything was perfect; my wife's favorite place in Guatemala. We would have stayed longer if we didn't have friends waiting for us in Xela. On a clear day with those volcanoes reflecting on lake Atitlan...

My husband, adult daughter and myself spend Mother's Day enjoying the views, tranquility and great meals at Casa del Mundo. The staff was very courteous and always available.

We only went here with our G adventure tour for breakfast and to hang out and swim for a few hours! The service was excellent...the breakfast the best I had in a long time...and I'm very picky and difficult with food. Highly recommend this place and will definitely stay here if I come to Lake Atitlan!

Casa del Mundo is definitely one of the best places that I've stayed in recent memory. We rented a small private room and bathroom situated with a nice view of the lake at volcano, but I was most impressed by the hotel's family-style dinners and numerous open spaces with spectacular views. As for the location, the hotel is easiest to...

This hotel is in a beautiful place. It was highly recommended and mostly didn't disappoint. Plus is the spectacular setting. We had a corner room with a great, uninterupted view of Lake Aititlan. The minus was the restaurant. It misses a trick by being enclosed when it could so easily be made open and airy. The food was uninspired and...
