Being my first time visiting Guatemala I wasn't sure how to evaluate the accommodation options, but one thing I was sure of is that I wanted to have an easy transfer from the airport (45 mins drive) to the hotel as I arrived at 11.30pm o XMas eve. As Posada offered this option and had availability - I booked - it was a GREAT DECISION.
The airport arrival can be overwhelming with the many taxi drivers lurking, and hoards of people waiting to welcome their family members. Our driver has a big clear sign and was an absolute delight!
The drive to Antigua is around 45 mins from the airport. We were thankful to have the hotel transfer as if you're not familiar with where you are, the dark drive can be daunting.
The receptionist was helpful and quick to respond on emails. The room was simple, clean and comfortable. Location was ideal to enjoy Antigua. Wifi available. And best of all, an INCREDIBLE view from our room.
NOTE: For non-Spanish speaking tourists (such as myself), you'll need to brush up on some basic phrases before visiting Guatemala. They cater more to the local tourists, which is part of its charm.
I would certainly stay again.
TIP: The rooftop restaurant next door (with white umbrellas, hard to miss) does great cocktails.More
