Value
The perfect place to enjoy an excellent stay in Santiago Atitlan, Solola Guatemala. Two of our important ambitions are the satisfacton of our clients, and the utmost respect for the ecological environment of the region. We have fused our hotel with the landscape, preserving and beautifying with a gorgeous garden in which we offer our comfortable rooms and swimming pool for our guests. Each room has private bathrooms with hot water. In the architecture and design elements we have used a traditional tz’utujil village design like the wooden beams, carved stone raised on two separate porches with large wooden columns, and thatched roofs. The bungalows are romantic with their carved stone and thatch roofs, with private gardens, terraces, and bathrooms with hot water.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Location, Location, and Location in Santiago on lake Atitlan across from base of San Pedro volcano. Immaculate vibrant colourful grounds well maintained. We had a cabin overlooking the lake, with small beach and dock a few steps away. Pool, hot tub, sauna and a Koy pond all encircled by lush vegetation. Restaurant overlooks lake. All in all a great place to stay and great value. Staff very friendly and treat clients well. Kayaks at beach for guests use. Hope to return.

This hotel is a little gem in Santiago. The location is perfect (ask to go directly to the hotel pier if you come by boat), the garden is just amazing and the service the best we had in Central America. The staff is so nice and helpful, everyone. The food is delicious, we spent 3 nights and ate 3x at the hotel: impossible to go away. We enjoyed the kayak, the wood-sauna and the room. We really regret to leave this Eden Garden 😕

We ate at the restaurant, and we love the receptionist Lidia, and the cook Otto, but the food was mediocre and the service was slow. We toured the hotel, thinking we might stay there of future trips, but the rooms were small and tight, the ground somewhat overgrown and the paths poorly lighted. In addition, the at the entrance of the road there is about a 20' stretch of loose pumice to be crossed. We removed it form out list of possible future places to stay

Really stay here if you get a chance. On the shore of Lake Atitlan, just out of Santiago, the Eco Bambu has it all, comfortable cabins, beautiful landscaping, great restaurant with delicious food, and a view of Volcan San Pedro that can't be beat. Our only regret was we only had two nights to stay there. We will be back.

The cabins were nice though not extravagant. The grounds were fabulous for birds and flowers. The meals were delicious with a lot of local flavor. We were on a birding adventure and this was a marvelous place to stay and take day trips from.

Hotel Bambú is conveniently located on the South side of the lake, making for a short more simple, and beautiful drive from the city or Antigua. The garden, birds, butterfly’s, and breeze create an incredibly relaxing atmosphere on the lake. Volcano views, while not as stunning as from the north side are always incredible and the quality and ambiance more than make up for this one tiny downside. All this said, the kind and helpful staff may be the best part.
