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...

An incredible place to spend New Years, everything is excellent. Delicious food and My room had a fire place, tv loads of dvds and a coffee maker. Beautiful view of the lake. Perfect for a solo female traveller.

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. I assure you that we have...

No hesitation in recommending Posada Santiago or Lake Atitlan as a destination when travelling in Central America. Beautiful scenery, very safe and peaceful - a real piece of heaven on earth. The Posada has a fascinating history with the owners having been committed to the local community from the outset. The locals make you feel very welcome. The rooms are...

I found this hotel in a Refinery29 article when I already had a trip to Guatemala planned with friends, and I'm so glad we included this in the trip! We had the most relaxing time canoeing on the lake, sitting in the sun, and lounging at the pool. They also are super helpful in arranging hikes and excursions in the...
