Quiet place, nice room, great view for the atitlan lake. Antonio chef made great dishes. Ilia, Petrona, Vilma and Juana treated us wonderfully. I think it is one of the best hotels in Santa Cruz la laguna.

Staff is very friendly (Spanish speaking) and the menu is simple, yet very tastefull. The location is next to the Lake, with a nice view and some candles. In Total we paid 100Q for dinner + drink. All in all, we would recommend going to this place.

Upon arriving I had some hope, but that started to diminish as the day went on. The restaurant is also part of the reception, and so when checking in you can clearly see what the kitchen looked like. I could see that there were many dirty looking dishes, appliances, flies all over, etc. It did not look clean, and because of that I did not want to eat there. After getting into the room in the bungalow, it looked crusty, not well constructed at all, the sheets all looked like they were random old ones from someone's home and we're stained and smelled funky. The room want properly cleaned either as there was food crumbs on the desk, there were many spiders, and spider webs that looked like they have been there a while. I had to kill a scorpion that easily crawled inside through one of the many gaps in the doors and windows, walls, ceilings, etc. Trying to go to sleep was near impossible with the noise that some animal was making as it chewed on the ceiling wood planks and pranced around on them. I imagine it was a rodent. Either way it was unsettling knowing a wild animal was chewing and scratching things directly above our heads. There was also a big gap above the bed that you could see into that ceiling space. No screens on the windows. Everything was poorly constructed to keep out the elements and I felt it just isn't worth the low price. The bed also has these weird cement bed posts that easily can ruin your knees as you try to squeeze through the one bed's side 6 inches from the wall. So after a night of zero sleep from keeping eyes for the invaders, we decided to leave after one night and forfeit the second nights reservation. Things can look "rustic" but it's not worth it if you're having sacrifice quality and common sense. Sorry, but this place needs a major makeover, and I would just avoid it if possible until they do. One positive though is that this was the first place that had actual hot water, and plenty. That was nice since the other places I was in before did not.

Made a reservation for the restaurant, Arco de Noe on 4/6 for 4/7. Showed up and were refused because we did not confirm on 4/7. Were not told and had to go elsewhere. Unimpressed and disappointed. Should have been told about this upon making reservation.

5 for the location, it's a nice view of the lake, the rooms are clean but avoid the garden rooms. I also found the common areas too tight for the number of guests. 2 for the service & unfriendly staff. Food is good, and restaurant staff are friendly but the receptionists were a nightmare to deal with.

On Lake Atitlan there is a special place Arca De Noe that is run by the most wonderful couple, Pedro and Paulina. There are fabulous meals made by Chef Domingo and the view is magnificent. The rooms are comfortable with gardens all around. You can learn Spanish there although they speak English, they have language instructors if you want to take classes there. Pedro can take you on beautiful nature hikes around the lake. He can arrange day trips to markets and hot springs. Very reasonably priced. Worth a visit. The village of Santa Cruz is special.

So beautiful place to stay, very nice staff and wonderful room and such a beautiful garden. And just by the water which is very nice and clean. The view of the volcanos and the lake is breathtaking from the sun chairs!

My wife and I stayed here for 9 nights in January 2019 and will be coming back in 2020 for sure. We stayed in one of the lakefront bungalows which are right on the water, set in a beautiful garden, with an unparalleled view of the Lake. The bungalows are spacious and well-designed. The hotel is located near the dock for easy transfers and access to the tuk-tuks to visit the village of Santa Cruz on the top of the hill (and the excellent Cecap restaurant there). Paulina and her staff (shout-outs to Rosa, Andrees mayor, Andreeus menor, Margarita, Manuela and Rosa) were very helpful accommodate our every need and cleaned the bungalow whenever you request it. The chef in the restaurant is very accomplished and the 90 quetzal set dinner is always worth the price if you have a big appetite (but we didn't every night). The view from the restaurant is lovely and the vines planted attract hummingbirds in great numbers. Santa Cruz is quiet and laid-back but there are plenty of activities available: hiking, swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddling, visits to other towns on the lake by launch, studying at the Santa Cruz Spanish School. There is noise in the bungalows until 9 p.m. from the Free Cerveza Hostel, so if you want to retire before then bring some earplugs. Don't let the comments about spiders or insects disturb you, we saw none at all except in the garden. We can't wait to go back next year.

Is a review of the restaurant! We have some drinks before taking the boat back to Panajachel. Drinks are reasonably cheap, but there aren't many choices. The seating is facing the lake. Friendly staff and they have free wifi as well, just asked the password and they're given it to you.

This place is sorely lacking. Not kept up. Saw lots of spiders on the wall at night—they ran into the cracks when lights went on in room. No mosquito nets or good screens. Lots of noise at night from nearby hostels. Poor lighting to find room at night.

Response from Tours-atitlan, Gerente at Hotel Arca De Noe
Responded 27 Dec 2018
Dear Elaine, Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear about your experience at our hotel. We have taken care of the lights to find the rooms and also have improved our cleaning in the rooms. As for the wall spiders, its hard to avoid them on windy days, we will certainly look for better solution on this. Again, I hope you come back again and have a great experience at our hotel. Sincerely, Arca de Noe
