We stayed at Casa Palopo for 3 nights with our 2 teenage kids. 5 to 7 nights or more would have been better. From the moment we walked in we were taken by the charm of this small hotel with its warm friendly staff and stunning lake views. The manager, Jiff, is an absolute gem with her great understanding of...

Take room no. 1 The Master suite. It looks out over the lake and is completely charming. This is a discreet Relais & Chateau establishment. Authentic, comfortable, friendly, opulent. The artwork is beautiful. This hotel manages to make you feel as though you are a special guest in a local home. First class food and wine. From here you can...

My family of 3 stayed at Casa Palopo just before Christmas and had an outstanding experience! We chose the option of flying to Casa Palopo from the Guatemala City airport in a helicopter - a bit extravagant but worth EVERY penny! The staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Every meal was delicious. The view from the...

Stunning hotel with the most beautiful scenery, and not soul in sight! Seriously... not a soul in sight. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the rooms were beautiful. Dinner time unfortunately lacked a bit of atmosphere as we were the only people there and it was super quiet. But for a quiet, romantic getaway.... it would be idyllic....

I was planning a day-trip to Atitlan to see a series of potential venues for my wedding in Guatemala. The night before around midnight, somebody mentioned Casa Palopo as an option. Given the limitation on time, I was not able to make an appointment with the hotel. I figured it wasn't going to be a big deal since we'd at...

We decided to go to Lake Atitlan because it was highly recommended by some Guatemalan friends. When we were searching for lodging, we found Casa Palopo on the top rank of the reviews and decided to give it a go. You can have high expectations but this place surpassed all of them. It's not only the location, the outstanding views,...
