This is the most beautiful and accommodating hotel I have ever been too! The view is unbelievable from every room! The food is fabulous and plentiful and first class! The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms very quiet! On a scale of 1-10, this is a 15!! I will be back!!

We have visited Lake Atitlan 5 times, and this was our favorite stay so far. Casa del Mundo is gorgeous, with the most beautiful gardens. The food at the restaurant is excellent, mattresses were comfortable, and best of all, there were SCREENS on the windows! I have a little trouble sleeping, and really appreciated the 9:30 pm "quiet time" (although...

It's my second stay at Casa del Mundo and it's honestly just as pleasant and relaxing as the first time i visited 2 years ago. Unfortunately, this time the stunning view of the volcanoes were obscured by cloud. Still, it's beautiful and ever so tranquil. Its position above the lake provide hotel guests with sweeping views from its many patios,...

La Casa del Mundo Hotel and Restaurant can be reached only by boat from PANAJACHEL. From the small pier there are a few stone steps and you arrive to the terrace that provide you an outstanding view of the Atitlan lake and Volcanos. It is one of the most beautiful sights in the world, recognized by many globetrotters. The home...

Beautiful place to stay on Lake Aticlan. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and I met lovely people too. Loved the long table for dinner where you can meet other guests The accommodations are lovely while still retaining its Guatemala flavor and style

We stayed here in February 2016. It was gorgeous (see pics from room and around the premises). We had perfect weather (High 70s, clear skies). The dinning experience was nice. It was family style and everyone made friends. The food was good. However, you can certainly save money by eating out in Panajachel or San Pedro. The Casa had a...

This place is absolutely beautiful! My wife and I traveled here for a few days, and I was an unbelievable experience. The hotel can only be accessed by boat, so it is very secluded and very quiet. We stayed in room 10 which was basically a completely private cabin pretty far up the mountain. The lake is nestled between volcanos,...

The location is about a 3 hour drive from Guatemala City to Panachel. Then, it's a relatively short boat ride to the Hotel. The hotel staff will meet you at the boat and carry your luggage to your room. Unless you are an extremely fit person, let them do this. There are at least 100 steps to your room. That...

We just stayed for lunch and it was amazing. Great vegetarian options if that's your thing. Everyone's food was amazing. Portions were a little small but not ridiculous. You do have to climb close to 100 steps but even those with us who had issues with knees felt it was worth it. The views were great, the water clean at...
