We stayed for 6 nights in this hotel. Every morning we were treated to a fabulous sunrise, the extra money we paid was worth the great view. The rooms were clean and comfortable, staff was super pleasant and bilingual. The first 5 nights we were there there weren't many other guests so it was very quiet. Unfortunately the last night...

Our family stayed here on a recent four day trip to San Pedro. We were in one of the apartments on the second floor with two bedrooms , a full kitchen, dining and relaxation area. The bathroom was quite modern and clean. The best part was the front porch or balcony where we could sit with morning coffee and enjoy...

Free Wifi present but a bit slow. Location great, away from the wasters but with enough charm and great views. Cleanliness of room was reasonable, not outstanding for hotel prices (250q for double room without lake view, 330q w lake view, low season). Staff friendly. Room had a fan and a fridge which was good. Free drinking water is a...

What a stunning place it is totally worth it for the view. The staff were lovely and very friendly. It was so good we are going back again at Christmas. San Pedro is quite noisy but when you stay here it is just away from the noise and is a peaceful haven to come back to. Only complaint is that...

If you're not looking to party then this is the place to stay in San Pedro. The rooms aren't amazing as they are quite small, and for the price you might expect more. However you soon realise the price is well justified. You can hire kayaks whenever you want free of charge, a couple of which are brand new. There...

I love this hotel. It's not fancy, but honestly, if you're looking for fancy, you're not going to be visiting San Pedro! The beds are SUPER comfy (if you've stayed in Guatemala, you'll know this is a BIG deal), lavish amounts of hot water (solar heat - not the dreadful widow maker hot water heaters that are everywhere else in...

Right on the waterfront with its own landing dock couldn't be better. Tropical gardens complete with humming birds, pergola and patio. Kayaks are on offer for free, a small paddling pool. Free tea, coffee and filtered water in reception area. Rooms, décor and bedding although seemed clean are a bit tired and in need of some TLC.

This was such an amazing place to stay. I got a room with the Lake front view and can't remember waking up to such a view before. It was only Q300 or $40 per night. Very short walking distance to restaurants/bars. The room was clean and spacious. Just remember to bring cash to pay for your hotel stay. It is...

A really wonderful experience for me and my husband. The rooms have great view of the lake, confortable beds and a beautiful garden with hamocks. We also used the free kayaks every morning. All the people working there were very kind and helpful. It is a paradise, very relaxing place and we will be back again!
