We stayed at Isla Verde for three nights with our 6-years old daughter at the Garden Suit. We truly enjoyed every aspect of this charming hotel. Beautiful gardens, spacious room, incredibly comfortable beds, excellent location, which is quiet and close to the water, amazing service, and delicious food. Truly everything was outstanding. A special bonus were the Temeskal and hot tub which are located just above the lake, and are such a phenomenal way to wrap up a day filled with activities! Try out yoga on the deck overlooking the lake and mountains, follow that by Temeskal and dinner at their romantic, candle lit, restaurant and you’ll feel what vacation is supposed to feel. We highly recommend this hotel and would love to come back!

We just loved the great vibes of that place: beautiful view and tropical garden, great food, very kind staff, nice and cosy atmosphere. The room also was just great. We spent 5 days and loved every minute. Thank you all @islaverde, we will come back!

From our first moment arriving the staff was amazing, and accommodating. They helped us with our large roll luggage up to our room, which was 2 minute walk through beautifully landscaped oasis with flowers and huge leafed plants. The rooms were very clean, the shower had hot water, the views from our private balcony of the lake was very pretty. The restaurant was amazing, great choices from wraps, Currys, and a dinner menu absolutely worth signing up for. The dinner atmosphere was incredibly romantic. They have beautiful areas to loung and great dock for swimming and sun bathing. The bathrooms are not open air, but also not sealed so be prepared for a kinda bungalow style bathroom, which was still very nice with its large shower, clean sink and toilet, but maybe the occasional friendly spider. We will absolutely be returning on our next trip. ~Michael & Rosa

This was an amazing place to spend the New Year. The lake is beautiful and it was great to be able to enjoy the fireplace in the evening. We couldn't have chosen a better place to spend New Year 2020. Riley was super personal and attentive and made fantastic cocktails for us. We can't wait to return!

The hotel is nice but thats it. The bathrooms smelled bad... something with the plumbing was leaking. They don't have hot water... only luke warm if any at all. The guest service is questionable. They assign one menu only for dinner and will NOT take into account any dietary restrictions. The answer was basically so sorry for your loss... go figure what to eat elsewhere (there are no restaurants close by, only by boat and at night its not easy to get a water taxi) We ended up going into Panajachel in the morning to buy bread, ham and cheese in order to have something to eat for dinner. Did not feel welcome. Not planning in going back.

Absolutely best place we have stayed at so far. We spent 5 nights living in paradise at isla verde. Riley, Olí and everyone at this hotel were fantastic! The rooms, less room and more private cabin were perfect for us and just what we were looking for. It was definitely nature surrounded. I will say this hotel isn’t for everyone since the cabins are built on the side of a hill and all are located up some outdoor stairs. If you are squeamish about living things (animals including insects and plants) you want like it here. But if nature and physical activity is your thing, the place will deliver and then some. Be ready to shower in a semi open bathroom since it’s open to nature and the water is solar heated, so in days of less sun the water is tepid at best, it was all well worth it. We were looking to get away from the bustling people crushed city and this place was just what we needed. The food was FABULOUS!!! I wish I could have kidnapped their cook and brought her home!! We will definitely come back.

We stayed 2 nights over new years. Good - very chilled out. Good bar. Reasonably priced drinks. Not so good - our accommodation, suite 1, although quaint was a little dated. There was a bit of a smell from the bathroom. On the last day one of the beds had a bunch of ants on it. The breakfasts and lunches were good and reasonably priced. Dinner had to be booked in advance, was about twice the price of lunch and was a fixed menu. We thought that it was not great value. Overall, a good stay, given the options that were available at this busy time.

Apart from the cabins being clean and cozy, they are spacious and in a summer cottage style, that is very charming. The best lake view if from the reception and restaurant area. The cottages are a bit uphill but have beautiful gardens and large balconies where one can chill and enjoy the lake view. Do try the yoga. The instructor is brilliant and it is a great activity in these surroundings. We also went for an hour of massage and we highly recommend it. It is a very spiritual room and the therapist extremely good! Certainly worthwhile the money.

What a totally awesome place to stay. This is a great place to just “be”. I was dropped off from the boat I caught in Panajachel. Just a quick ten minute ride from there. In those ten minutes you will arrive to a place that is secluded, has a fantastic restaurant, charming cabins, and best of all a staff that wants to make your time there something that will give you memories for a long time. The cabins can be with or without a bathroom. I opted for a shared bathroom. This was no more than 10 feet from my cabin. Easy access. I was also in cabin 1 which is high up the side of the mountain. But that was not an issue as when I checked in Ollie, was there and he carried my suitcase up from the reception desk. The trek up was a surprise to me, but I quickly became use to it. The view from there was fantastic, the lake, the volcanoes and at night the lights from other towns around the lake. The food was outstanding. You can have dinner there each evening for 100q, which for the meal is a good price. You can also get breakfast and lunch. They have a nicely stocked bar also. You can purchase a bottle of wine and consume it at your leisure. The restaurant/reception area is a nice place to hang out, read a little or at night hangout by the fireplace. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They arranged transportation to Chichicastenango and then back to Antigua. They also gave me directions as to how to reach which towns by boat and what time the last boats would leave certain towns. I can only give Isla Verde the best marks for everything. You made three nights a great time. Thank you all. I’ll be back.

I don't know how things can be more laid back than this. This is the only village on the lake with no road access, but nonetheless, you have everything you need at the hotel, and nothing that you do not need unless you've shoved it into your luggage. For all else, just ask. The staff are magicians. I'm great with names, but I was surprised how the owners confirmed my name one time only and were able to repeat it despite a weekend rush of official hotel guests and others visiting for a coffee, drink, or large dinner party. The value on my cabin would be so hard to beat. If my girlfriend were there, we would need to catch Sunday church services or face hellfire.
