Adventure agency Via Venture and Mt Sobek booked for us a 3-day stay. Love the quality food, the location and quiet. Picturesque in the mornings. Refreshingly cool, too. Did treks at Indian Nose and visits to nearby San Juan La Laguna. Massages were great in the dedicated room.

Based on trip advisor reviews (and some guide books) we choose this property for a 4 night stay. It was lovely. Kind, helpful people, good food in the restaurant, a short walk from town and a beautiful property. Some people might be bothered that the internet is turned off from 6:30-8 p.m. for the dinner hour, but I thought that...

I just spent 5 days at Posada de Santiago. I chose Santiago as it is the largest population of indigenous people and very few tourist and expats compared to other places. The Posada is a 5 minute walk from town and it is a little lush paradise. The staff works really hard to maintain the property. There are so many...

This is the best kept secret at Lake Atitlan. You may have to cross the lake from Panachel to get there, but that in itself is part of the charm of going. You can also drive around the lake to Santiago. However, taking a boat is awesome as you cross the waters surrounded by three volcanos. Once you get there,...

I love staying here. The cottages, food and drinks are consistently wonderful, but the best part is always the hospitality at the Posada. They have recently added a lakeside bar to complement the jacuzzi & pool, which are already amazing by themselves. I highly recommend crossing the lake to get away from the touristic scene. On a cultural note, do...

A lot of time and care has gone into making every aspect of your experience staying at Posada de Santiago great. The grounds are lush, green, and full of flowers. Every direction you look is just beautiful, whether you're coming down the drive or sitting in the jacuzzi staring at Volcan San Pedro. Our bedroom was clean and quaint, and...

My husband and I spent three nights here as part of our honeymoon. We truly enjoyed our stay. I think it was an excellent choice for us. Food was excellent...we didn't even want to eat anywhere else. The grounds are gorgeous and our cabin was cozy. Unfortunately because of the time of year we were there it was a bit...

I have traveled to Guatemala for several years doing mission work, nothing beats the feeling of the Posada. There are hotels with nice views, and poor food, or vice versa. But the Posada has managed to serve great food and provide really nice rooms with amazing views. Even if you DON'T get a lake view room, the gardens are beautiful...

Anyone traveling to Guatemala would be missing something spectacular if they didn't take the detour down to Lake Atitlan. A pretty quick ride from Antigua, the Lake is regarded as one of the most breathtaking places in the world...and rightly so. The towns that dot the coast of the lake are rich with culture, entertainment, and natural beauty. Although we...

When I inquired about this, the night watchman, Ricardo, told me it was a squirrel that ran into a room. Some people actually the scrawny little squirrels.
