Casa Palopo

Lake Atitlan

This is undoubtedly the best option around Lake Atitlan. With its pastel coloured walls and colonial décor it fits in beautifully with its surroundings.  The hotel as a whole is littered with Mayan carvings, colourful textiles and some bizarre paintings and has a fantastic balcony with soft furnishings to watch the sun set over the lake

Why we recommend it:

  • One of the best hotels in Guatemala
  • Lovely suites, each different in size
  • Pool and sitting area, perfect for watching the sunset over the lake
  • First class restaurant with the best black bean soup in Latin America!




The 9 rooms, all of which overlook the lake are spacious, bright and tastefully decorated.  Each has a private balcony lined with bougainvillea and a small sitting area ideal for watching the sun set between the two volcanoes that dominate the region.

There are numerous, well laid out sitting areas covered in soft cushioning, all of which face the lake so you never feel like your space is being invaded.  The elongated pool is at the far end of the hotel and has the sort of discreet waiter service you would expect of such a hotel.

The dining area is lit by candles, all of which hang like a chandelier over each individual table.  The food is first class and a fusion of Guatemalan and European cuisine and of course includes fresh fish from the lake that day.
