Didn't stay here but had a great dinner at restaurant. Pretty expensive for Guatemala but lives up to it with quality of food. Ate an outstanding shrimp dish wrapped in wantons with a solid reasonable bottle of wine. Awesome view and walkable for lunch from Santa Catalina if you don't mind the steep hills.

Casa Palopo is one of the nicest hotels in Atitilan. We have heard so many great things about it that we decided to stay there for a quick vacation. Once we arrived the hotel proved the best service, there was someone waiting with a refreshment and a smile. Once we checked into our room, it felt like we where given...

Our stay could not have been nicer. The hotel overlooks the lake and has one of the most incredible views anywhere in the world. Think sun, volcanos, and water. The hotel is secluded but we found that to be a positive. The restaurant was wonderful so we ended up having our dinners there. At night, the hotel lights up in...

We booked a dinner reservation for 5pm so that we could bring our 6 month old son with us and not interfere with later dinner reservations. We arrived and before we made it to the restaurant we were told no babies by an employee who had been told by a random guest. I understand a hotel with a no kids...

Our friends treated us to a night here as a wedding gift whist we were on our honey moon. The hotel is beautiful, set high above the lake.

What makes this hotel really perfect is the incredible view you have of Lake Atitlan and the volcanos. They really knew how to make good use of that since every room,the restaurant and an outdoors living have this view. The entire hotel is romantic and quiet, perfect for a weekend of relaxation. The service and the food are good too....

This is one of the best hotels in Guatemala and very likely the best at lake Atitlan. The rooms are large, with terraces overlooking the lake thus stunning views, fantastic! The LÓccitane soaps are a nice surprise. The hotel was long ago a big house and it keeps that charm, with its living room (with a real Botero picture!!!), chimmeny,...
