Even our hotel was colorful

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 6, 2007

The service was the best of all the places we have stayed. Friendly, helpful, no question too silly. The best fresh lime drinks in all of Guatemala! We had the same bartenders as last year. They said they remembered us...hmm don't know if that is a good thing. Different chef than last year but still excellent. We couldn't get enough of his black bean soup for lunch. Every meal was terrific.

Highly recommend this place. Beautiful views of lake Atitlan. Sunsets like I have never seen. I watched one while looking out the large window in the shower. Room was very nice with mini bar. Very nice patio looking out over the lake.

Unique Quality: A very small colorful place on the side of the caldera overlooking the whole of Lake Atitlan. There is a dock where you can go swimming in the lake or take a boat tour from. There are nice gardens on the way down to the lake. They do have a pool. Temps a little too cool for me to try. We birded off of the patios and saw some very nice birds.

Casa Palopo is situated between two nice small towns. Santa Catarina has lots of weavings for sale. It is a short 15 min ride to Panajachel.

Beautiful artwork. Lovely big fireplace to sit in front of with a drink before or after dinner.

a villa with perfect views.....

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

The views are probably the best on the entire lake. The hotel is small and intimate - only 6 rooms in the hotel and a separate villa. Each room has its own private terrace and view of the lake. Wonderfully cozy - maybe a tad kitchy - but the bed was marvolous. The restaurant serves top-notch cuisine - very well prepared. Great service but the staff understands not to hover or be annoying. They have a pool (though small), private beach and can arrange numerous tours. It's pricey but the view and the general mood of the hotel make this THE place to stay on Lake Atitlan.

Directions: just a bit past the village of Sanata Catarina
