Pictures do not do this place justice! La Fortuna is simply amazing! My wife and stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon in the stunning suite #5. I've seen a ton of pictures of this place on Instagram & YouTube but it really doesn't do it justice. Every detail of La Fortuna is thoughtfully laid out. And the staff are second to none! I can't express how welcoming and friendly the staff were! We are breakfast on our balcony overlooking the lake each morning and ended the days with a dip in the hot tub. And that tub gets HOT! Our only regret, if you can call it that, was that we spend so much time exploring the lake that we really didn't get to spend as much tune enjoying La Fortuna as we would've liked to. We will definitely be back again in the near future!

We loved everything about La Fortuna. It is peaceful, comfortable, beautifully designed. The staff are so friendly and the whole place is just picture perfect. We especially loved the fire-heated hot tub and the wine cellar. Such a special place in the perfect setting with the gorgeous lake and volcano backdrop. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Came here for our anniversary for its tranquility and intimate setting. Gorgeous architectural detail of its modern huts and eco friendly focus. Wifi was strong but not needed if you came to escape from it. Food was good. Enjoyed paddle boarding in the morning when the lake is calm. Very helpful and kind staff. Thank you Geraldine, Johnny and the staff. Stayed for 2 nights and it was serene.

We can’t say enough about the location, food, and staff at La Fortuna. Room and location are both unique and comfortable. Food was great, and drinks to match. Steve and Kat were easy to communicate with ahead of time and nice enough to give suggestions of places to see and do. Definitely recommend and suggest playing fetch w Sanza and her avocados.

This was a dream destination and a dream hotel! Excellent service, excellent food, excellent ambiance. Angelica was the best 🤍 the dogs are also super friendly and lovable. They have paddle-boards and kayaks to use for free and it super fun to jump in that turquoise water.

I had the pleasure and the blessing to have stayed 2 wonderful and relaxing nights at LA Fortuna. My love for the place started prior to me visiting as I had several questions being a solo traveler. Gloria the manager never hesitated to answer my questions with respect and grace. Upon arrival she greeted me at the dock and welcomed me like family. Once my feet touched the beautiful grounds of the resort I felt like I entered an enchanted garden. It was spectacular with all its natural beauty from the gardens, cabins, and to the views of the lake amd valcano. La Fortuna is also very close to other parts of the lake by a quick boat ride which gave me the opportunity to continue exploring which I did but I mostly wanted to stay in and enjoy the peace and serenity of the resort. Oh let me not forget to acknowledge the scrumptious food, cocktails and also the relaxing massage I received while visiting. Do not hesitate to book this magical destination..you will not regret a second of your stay.

I can’t even begin to put into words how perfect this stay was. We picked up a boat in panajachel and it was the first stop on the public boat which was great. We were met by Majo who was so welcoming and had the most calming energy. She answered all of our questions and showed us to our room. The room is indeed petite, but when you consider all of the additional outdoor space that comes with, it’s really the perfect size. The bathroom was amazing- nothing quite like a hot shower in the middle of a thunderstorm. Breakfast on the patio was sublime, our little “reading nook” up top was so fun, I could go on. We had dinner by candlelight all 3 nights- it was just us the first and last night and then we were able to dine with another group the 2nd night which was very fun! I think a property like this attracts a more down to earth crowd! We made ample use of the dock- we swam in the lake every day, took kayaks out (they bring them down to the lake for you), and enjoyed the lakeside seating options. We also loved the hot tub- nothing quite like having a cocktail in the hot tub in the rain. Also- do not miss the little hike behind the property. The views are unreal! It was very easy to flag down the public boats as well to get to the other towns- side note, highly recommend the nature reserve in panajachel! The staff is great about arranging anything you may need- they set us up with a private boat and car when we needed to get to the airport after hours. They are super responsive via WhatsApp which is so convenient to ask questions and get help while you’re out and about! Overall, our stay was magnificent- Majo, Catherine, Angelica and everyone else on the property, thank you so very much!!!

Absolutely a dream of a location to stay. Very isolated, which is what I was looking for. You can socialize if you want, but definitely never forced to which is nice. We had our coffee every morning at 6a and watched the sunrise from our room. They helped me with my proposal to my partner. This place is truly special and can’t wait to come back! The staff was great, special shout out to Majo for being such a wonderful host. We would honestly want to book days here again when we know she will be there. That’s how special she made it! Keep in mind this location is on its own, no other businesses around it. You can go into other towns by bot if youd liked. They provide meals throughout the day to eat at their table or in your room (very delicious). They have a shared jacuzzi, gym area, tanning area, swing chairs, etc. The dogs on the property were amazing! Made this stay all the better:) don’t worry if they bark at you as you’re approaching. They’re just saying hi. And please throw the ball for Sanza! She loves to play fetch. ;) Oh and LGBTQ+ friendly:)

What an Oasis! So tranquil, so beautiful. Totally personalized service. Rustic with all the modern things you need. We can’t say enough about our experience. A fantastic home base for your Guatemalan adventures. We visited the local towns and Mayan ruins.
