Spent a week at Posada de Santiago while volunteering in the area. Comfortable rooms, beautiful grounds, GREAT restaurant, superior staff, and easy access to the Lake make this a relaxing respite for travelers. I'd happily stay there again if I'm in the area.

Beautiful location just outside Santiago overlooking one of the majestic volcanos. It has its own dock so you can be dropped directly at the property but it is equally as easy to walk from the main harbour using the public service which runs regularly (20-25Q from Pana). The rooms are rustic yet comfortable- only thing was that the fireplace seemed...

Thanks for your comments. Sorry about the smoke. We found a squirrel nest in the chimney, which was built in a day or two.

We spent 2 nights here, we arrived by boat from San Anotiono Palopo, it was lovely to walk up past the pool and through the gardens. We were quite early in the day so our luggage was stored and we went off to explore via a short Tuk tuk ride. Once back our room was ready and it was adorable....

I spent Christmas here with a close friend. It was surprisingly quiet. We had already spent a month on the other side of the lake in less than optimal accommodation. What a treat the posada was - beautiful grounds and bird song, superb restaurant, sweet cottage with lovely bedding, reliable hot water, good wine list, great staff and well away...

We stayed here because of the location as well as the price. The wifi wasn't reliable, there were huge spiders that kept coming into the room and when we went to check out they added another expense that was close to $40 American dollars for ONE night. Guatemala used to be an affordable place to travel to.

Dear Anonymous Guest: I am sorry about the unreliable internet. The server, the largest in the country, was upgrading the over-subscribed system. I suggest that it would have ben more productive had you questioned your bill when you were paying it rather than bringing it up in a slanderous manner on a public forum.
