We've been coming here for years. Right on the water, gorgeous rooms, great service, delicious meals. Nothing compares to being right on the lake. The family that runs this place is so helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

We stayed two nights in this hidden gem owned by Pedro Solis of Tours Atitlán. We had a newly renovated bungalow facing the lake. The decor was rustic and trés-chic. The hotel's restaurant was surrounded by flowers that attracted beautiful hummingbirds. You could do some birding while you were having breakfast! The staff was friendly and very welcoming.

Arca de Noe was one of the most positive surprises on our 3-week Central America trip. What a precious gem! This boutique hotel was decades ago designed and built by an Austrian but was a few years ago taken over by a brilliant local couple – Pedro and his wife. Nobody could do better than they, we were impressed by...

Hotel Arca de Noé is in Santa Cruz la Laguna on Lake Atitlan. I was determined to stay there when I read that Santa Cruz has no road access and could only be reached by lancha. That sounded like my kind of destination. Tours Atitlan, who have a base on the premises, arranged for me to be picked up at...
