Just stay at this hotel. It's amazing and unique and so romantic. We had bedroom 1 and the bathroom was open to the jungle which was a new experience. We had breakfast on our terrace from our room on both days. The food was lovely and the jungle was amazing. The hot tub is a lovely touch in the evenings...

This was the first stop on our 2 week honeymoon. I don't have the ability to express how amazing our stay was at La Fortuna. Everything we experienced at the resort and the surrounding villages was something we'll never forget and we'll cherish forever. The staff was amazing and helpful about the surrounding villages and activities. Kat and Steve were...

Stunning grounds, views, and main lodge. Delicious food...the best food we had in Guatemala. We ate breakfast on our private patio, and dinner in the main lodge with other travelers which was fun. Wonderful staff (the owners were away two of the three nights we stayed but the managers Carlos and Claudina took great care of us in their absence)....

First off, the reviews are off the charts, the pictures online are breathtaking. I booked a room because the newest "guide book" marks this as a must stay property. I had been to Atitlan 10 years prior and I wasn't that impressed. Let me tell you, there are not enough synonyms of AMAZING, INCREDIBLE and OUTSTANDING to do this place...

La Fortuna is an Eco-lodge style hotel with four bungalows. It is rustic, done very well. They generate their own electricity and is completely off the grid, but you never need to worry about lights, and power outlets are everywhere. Rooms are very nice and the bathrooms are entirely outside (in a private enclosure). Very cool!! The owners are absolutely...

La Fortuna is really a hidden treasure and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The accommodations are excellent but what sets La Fortuna apart is the thoughtful and friendly hospitality. The private bungalows make for the perfect romantic getaway. Having breakfast on the patio overlooking Lake Atitilan is such a pleasant experience. Accessible only by boat, your arrival will feel...

La Fortuna at Atitlan is the benchmark by which all other boutique hotels should be judged. Lake Atitlan is one of the most majestic places on earth and La Fortuna is the perfect compliment to it.

It's difficult to do justice with a quick review, but I'll just say "wow"! The scenery, the service, the lake, the food, the suites...and all the little attention to detail. For the price, I would say you'd be hard pressed to find a better spot anywhere in the world. Steve and Kat...you guys were amazing hosts.
