I had a lovely and spacious room with an amazing view of Lago Atitlan, plus a fairly private outdoor patio area to lounge in. The property feels secluded and safe, in a naturally landscaped setting with wonderful vegetation. I took one of the free kayaks out on the lake for a sunset ride, with little hassle or trouble. The staff...

We enjoyed our two-day stay at this resort. We visited with another family and arrived directly at the hotel's jetty from Panachel. The view of the lake from the hotel restaurant and from our balcony was spectacular. It was so relaxing to see locals going about their business on the lake in canoes, either fishing or making their way to...

The hotel is built in the middle of an amazing park area and the view of the Atitlan lake is breathtaking! Relax after a long and hard drive from Antigua Guatemale and enjoy the peace and nature - wonderful!

A wonderful little hotel to stay at. Just on the outskirts of the town so it is peaceful and quiet. Great customer service at both the Hotel/reception and restaurant. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The pool is good (thumbs up from our 9 year old daughter.) We stayed in the second floor room with the garden view and you can...

I stayed a night here with my boyfriend and cousin. My bf and I live at the lake so this was a "splurge" for us, but were so glad we did!! The service was attentive and joyful, all the staff went above and beyond to make us happy and comfortable. Even though the hotel is owned by foreigners, it employs...

Although we have had the good fortune to stay in many places that I would rate as a "very good", very few rise to an excellent rating. We had a wonderful second floor room with garden views to one side and a lake view to the other. The room was spacious and absolutely immaculate. As many have stated before me,...

We stayed here a few weeks ago. Great service, very clean room and beautiful gardens! We stayed in one of the lovely bungalows. Sitting on the porch surrounded by bird calls, using the pool and hot tub, eating a delicious breakfast on the restaurant patio - all fond memories. Bambu's right on Lake Atitlan and a short walk to Santiago.

Loved loved the Bambu, great room, fantastic staff. Everyone was so friendly to us. The food was excellent. The gardens are beautiful. Lovely pool, hot tub and sauna. Unfortunately the one afternoon we had free and were at the pool the neighbor decided to light a fire. It got smokey so we had to leave. This was not a reflection...

We thought we were booked for two nights in another local casita, however we sadly found out that we had only been booked for one night. We stumbled upon the bamboo in a desperate last minute need for a room. We could not believe our luck when we arrived here to find our spacious, comfortable and clean Casita #2, with...
