Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your visit and managed to fit so much into 2 days. Yes, we are aware that upon arrival the first impression may be misleading, but as you mentioned upon entering the hotel this is quickly changed. Best wishes.

Nice rooms, excellent/attentive staff. In walking distant to beach front and many small stores. Restaurant in hotel has good food (hence the 4/5) but great desserts. Pool is clean and breath taking view from the deck.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A rustic and comfortable family-run hotel built on the grounds of a former coffee factory. While its extensive gardens and lake views foster a feeling of seclusion and relaxation, our central location in a Guatemalan town unspoiled by tourism lets you experience traditional village life. An excellent place to undertake outdoor adventures and eat delicious local food, supplied mostly by our own organic garden.
