We spent one night here on a visit to several locations in Guatemala and were amazed at the spectacular views. To be honest I would have paid a huge amount more for a view of this quality and woudnt have minded at all if the room was alot more basic than it was. Basic yes, but clean with hot water,...

Nice clean rooms. Hot showers WIFI. The view from the room is incredible. The manager, Matt, is a great asset too this hotel. He is quick to see if he can help you with local issues or find good reasonable travel arrangements. We will go back to this hotel!

We were lucky enough to stay two nights and had no prior reservations. It was great to arrive at night and wake up to that amazing view. We took out the kayaks and paddled around. I would return again for sure.

I stayed in San Pedro la Laguna before, but nothing compared to this time. This hotel is very good, has a beautiful garden with an amazing view, it is clean, pretty and with good value. It is close to restaurants and bars of the city ant the same time very quiet. The pool is small, but it was enough for...

My friends and I really enjoyed our triple room overlooking the lake. The location is good - close to restaurants and lake activities - and we appreciated the added amenities like coffee and an honor bar/fridge and the hotel's green policies.
