My family and I stayed two nights at Lomas de Tzunua while we explored Lake Atitlan. We enjoyed it immensely! You will not find a better view of the lake ANYWHERE!!!
A couple things that might be helpful: as the website says, have the boat drop you at the Lomas dock (unless you want to walk with your luggage 20 minutes through town, where no one speaks English to direct you), and then use the service phone to call up to have the staff help you with your bags. It's a LOT of stairs, but it's mainly in the shade, so take your time and take breaks. What's the rush?!? As my wife said, "I would have climbed 3x as many for this view!" If you have health issues or are elderly, this would likely be prohibitive.
The rooms are large, the water is hot and plentiful, and the views are out of this world!
The pool is clean and very cold. Perfect for an afternoon dip.
The staff are VERY sweet and kind. They are indigenous Mayans and speak Spanish fluently as their second language. We spoke only a little Spanish, so communication was a little bit of an issue, but for us it made it even more of an adventure getting outside of our comfort zones.
The food at the restaurant was delicious at every meal. Yum!!!
The owner, Theiry, who is Belgian, speaks several languages fluently, and is around the hotel in the morning and evenings, so if there is anything you need, you can ask him and he can convey it to the staff. He is a wonderful musician who often plays his guitar while you eat your meals. He and his wife have done many wonderful things for the surrounding community (built a library, teaching music lessons, etc.), so it's great to help support all they are doing as well.
It is quiet, which is what my family and I wanted, so if you are looking for hippie night-life and partying, don't come here looking for it. Go to San Pedro instead. If you want a quiet, beautiful place to relax, with amazing views of Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes, friendly staff, and don't mind a little bit of a climb, you can't do better than Lomas.
