The hotel grounds are beautiful, and they contain ruins that make it a museum and open to the public for a fee. It is definitely worth visiting the grounds and even having a meal. However, our stay was not memorable in the least. The front desk staff is seemingly untrained. They could not answer basic questions about the hotel property itself. Our rooms were outdated and beds uncomfortable. They decided to change pool hours on the day of simply because the hotel was not very crowded, which was a disappointment to our kids who were planning to swim. Breakfast was included; however the line for the breakfast buffet fue to COVID restrictions was obnoxious. We asked our server to bring tortillas since they were being made fresh and there was a long delay. 30 minutes later, he told us our tortillas had been given to another customer. Small items like this kept adding up and definitely were not worthy of the previous reputation of this hotel. The rates are simply not justified given the level of service and amenities. We were looking forward to this stay and walked away sorely disappointed.

Really cool museum to visit. It is more like 6 different museums: one for silver, one for chocolate, one of the ruins of the church and its relics and crypts, one of claywork and candles, one of architecture that had a 'then and now' photograph exhibit to show old and current photos of places in Antigua and in the capitol, and the Vical museum, which had pottery, urns and figurines from ancient times (like 2000 and 3000 years ago!) alongside modern pieces that take inspiration or 'mirror' the ancient works of art. This last museum was a real treat! The space was amazing, the lighting was proper and the pieces were breathtaking. Highly recommend this museum to all Antigua visitors.

We spent an hour here and could have spent more! It's inside a hotel space and has so many interesting historical displays. Worth the visit!

Interesting and lovely gardens, museum and ruins. So much to take in. Plenty of other visitors here, but the places weren't crowded. Definitely worth visiting.

Absolutely fantastic collections. Casa Santo Domingo is worth a stop. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous, the museum fantastic, and the ruins just give the entire place a little extra magic. Treat yourself to a spa day after walking around the museum. You won’t regret it.

In 1538, the first Dominican friars of the "Orden de Predicadores de Santo Domingo de Guzmán" arrived in the "Capitanía General de Guatemala", establishing the "Iglesia y Convento de Santo Domingo". It was one of the most important Roman Catholic convents of the Americas in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The baroque two-towered building with fantastic ten bells, filled with rich objects and holy relics, was destroyed by the earthquakes of 1773. Its ruins remained abandoned for many years. Centuries later, they were somehow restored and house, today, an awesome complex of museums. Through the ancient walls, brick archways, old crypts and tile corridors, the treasures of "Casa Santo Domingo" are on display: pre-Columbian Mayan art, ceramics, religious objects, silver and glass wares, old pharmacy articles ... plus paintings, sculptures, colonial furniture and archaelogical findings. Art and history. Unmissable! Enjoy!

Important not only for it’s a historical role in the construction and Life of the city, but important because it is one of the largest archaeological complexes open to the public. Expansive ruins with fairly good labeling Allow one to appreciate this edifice. But what makes this a really amazing places the way in which it has been adapted to a high-end hotel, which assists in its preservation and that generates lots of cash for the economy. Add to that A top-flight restaurant with beautiful seating, and some of the most impressive art galleries with art for sale to the public that you will find in the city. Dozens of wonderful photogenic settings available. A must see.

Very nice grounds to walk with the old ruins tied into the new hotel. Museum is very nice. Worth the effort to see. There are apparently tunnels as well but we didn't have time to see them.
