The price of the admission to the hotel gardens will be taken off in the restaurant. Wonderful food and beautiful gardens, flowers, birds to enjoy.

We went to Atitlan gardens for lunch during new year. They charge 75 q/person for entry to the gardens and you can eat at their restaurant overlooking gardens, lake and volcanoes. The amount will be deducted from your food bill if you use the restaurant. Nice place with lovely views .

Don't think of it as paying an "entry fee" into the gardens as some other reviewers have commented. Rember you're having a pleasant lunch with a stunning view of the lake and volcanoes AND you get to walk around the gardens with wild parrots and guacamayas. The service and lunch were both very good and the same price range as... More

Very nice garden but the 75 Quetzales price tag seemed very steep, especially since they did not let us park inside because of an event. Beautiful views, we enjoyed the sunset here and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys gardens.

beautiful gardens, the location is perfect. Not a fan of the food of the restaurant though. Great venue for big events. Children friendly.

If you love gardens-go. Manicured and formal in nature, I wandered the trails lost in the ever changing flowering plants. Everything becomes more beautiful when you spend time in the garden and this one has an amazing view of Lake Atitlan. Very tranquil and a much needed break from hectic Pana. Entry fee is 165q, but if you dine in... More

My breath was taken away by the beauty of the outside gardens here! The professional landscapers did a fabulous job of combining color, texture, height and aroma. There were plenty of plants in bloom in November, so we weren't disappointed. The inside gardens were lovely, but there were many topiary bushes that were badly in need of trimming. The view...

These gardens are heavenly, in a spectacular setting. The variety of flowers, shrubs and trees is amazing, the colors being enhanced by the backdrop of Lake Atitlan and the surrounding mountains. The gardens are well kept, and go all the way down to the lake.

The gardens are a must see and are what brought us here. If you are not staying at the hotel the is a 55 Quetzal entry fee, but you can use it as a credit in the restaurant. We were with a group of Master Gardeners and garden club members and all were in love with these gardens
