"Thoreau, very likely without quite knowing what he was up to, took man's relation to nature and man's dilemma in society and man's capacity for elevating his spirit and he beat all these matters together, in a wild free interval of self-justification and delight, and produced an original omelette from which people can draw nourishment in a hungry day." -...

My friends and I stayed a couple of nights here before heading back to Antigua. The staff were all friendly, helpful, and flexible. The food was great but they do not provide free breakfast. They do have a nice restaurant. The cottages were cute and clean but our cottage was a bit of a hike with heavy bags! They even...

I discovered Posada de Santiago at the end of a Habitat for Humanity build in Panajachel. I have returned many times since that time and am always pleased with the comfort of the cottages with their abundant hot water, pure water to drink and the fireplaces. There is nothing like an early mornig walk to the dock to wach the...

We stayed a couple of nights at the Posada and we would go back to Guatemala just for that. Where should I start? By the Woodfire Stone Hammam along the lake ? The Dragon fruit cocktail in the Hamac? The stone carved headboard in the room? The fantastic food?.... Just great to relax for a couple of days!

This place built by the proprietor is a grand find......IF... You don't mind your wifi turned off from 6-8:30. "Non negotiatiable". And not being allowed to enter to get wifi before the scheduled 7:00 breakfast hour. Other than that. Filtered water to your sink in cabins surrounded by lush lush vegetation and your own personable hammock. Wun di bar! Owner...

DJGSant, Owner at Posada de Santiago, responded to this review

I want to correct two bits of misinformation from this guest review: We open at 7:30, not 7:00. The wireless connection is available in our outdoor palapa and we have one more router in a covered area which is always on. Most guests appreciate that the restaurant router is turned off during the dinner hour. They enjoy dining the old...

I first stayed at the Posada in 1998, returned in 2000, and then was away for awhile before returning in 2010. I've been at the Posada for a few days every summer since, even though I've about done everything that tourists do in Santiago, because I like the place so much. It is special. I brought a student group here,...

Thanks to David and staff for a perfect get-away spot. The bungalow was beautiful, with a lovely fireplace to take away the night's chill. The food at the restaurant was fabulous, the canoe ride wonderful, the sauna perfect..... I cannot wait to return!

Lovely beyond words and the food is great...The setting is beautiful and l loved our simple but very clean room. The area by the lake was so relaxing. The blue corn pancakes are a must, as are the freshly made blue corn tortilla chips.

I have stayed at a number of places around Lake Atitlán. Or I used to. After a while it became apparent that the Posada was my favorite, and then it also became apparent that I enjoyed myself at the Posada so much that there was no point in doing second best ever again. Meals in the restaurant are beautifully presented,...

This little resort is beautiful, comfortable, quaint and so delightful! The staff is thoughtful and attentive. The casitas are comfortable with nice additions like an outdoor hammock. There's a pool and jacuzzi, as well as the lake for swimming. There's an area with chairs for sun or for shade. The food in the restaurant is really good. Breakfast options include...
