We stayed in Casa #10 at Casa del Mundo for a get away and also an annual board meeting. The accommodations are outstanding in a very unique setting! Nestled on a steep hillside overlooking Lake Atitlan, you can not ask for a more gorgeous setting. The staff was great and we enjoyed all of our meals at the restaurant on...

This is one of the most magical hotels with fantastic lake views. You will experience a beautiful ride by boat across the lake to this hotel, walk up amazingly landscaped steps to a gem of a hotel. The staff is welcoming and there to help make your stay the absolute best! The food is great and the evening meals by...

We stayed 3 nights here, the third night was a late decision so we understood having to move rooms for the last night. We were in room #1 initially which we liked - there were some kitchen noises but not at unreasonable times of day so it didn't matter. The views were epic and the decorations in the room (and...

I went to Casa del Mundo for breakfast as a guest and it was one of the best I had during my stay in Guatemala! The view on the lake is just breath-taking and the breakfast burrito, fresh fruit juice, smoothies and coffee and just delicious! I also enjoyed a tour on the lake while renting a kayak and it...

Wow, what a magical hotel! I think I had 3 of the most relaxing days of my life here. The place is breathtakingly beautiful.. hammocks strewn about everywhere, little patios and courtyards tucked into the face of the cliff, magnificent views from all angles. The rooms were beautifully decorated with traditional Mayan weaving. The food was so good - try...

I honestly cant understand all the great reviews on here for this place. Yes, the location is beautiful but the property itself has 2 star rooms and facilities, the food is bland and over-priced and the staff - arrogant and unhelpful. To make matters worse there were also an abundance of bugs in our room (including scorpions) which dont really...

You take a launch to reach this beautifully constructed getaway on the shore of Lake Atitlan. The view from our large corner room (#13) was stunning—cloud-capped mountains and volcanic peaks in the distance during the day, a full moon reflecting off the water at night. We ate breakfast on one of many sunny terraces—delicious preserves tasted homemade. Very accommodating staff....

This place has amazing gardeners - the plants are spectacular and well cared-for. The views of the nearby volcanos across Lake Atitlan as well as the lake itself are gorgeous. The food was very good and it's a great spot for disconnecting from the rest of the world and relaxing lakeside!

Guatemala continuously surprises me every day since I arrived two weeks ago. La Casa del Mundo is absolutely a jewel at Lake Atitlan. Nineteen rooms were built on terraces. Every corner there is an inviting hammock or a tea table. Colorful flowers are blooming. The staff are very helpful. The view is a million dollar view. It feels in a...

We stayed in such a lovely room with a great view! It was one of the suites, so you pay a bit more, but we had a 180 degrees view over the lake. You can do plenty activities organized by the hotel and you can do some swimming around the hotel, which you can't if you stay in one of...
