Filthy would be the one one word description I would give to this place, from the the fly infestation all around to the stray dogs running up and down the property that you don't know if they are part of the "ammenities" or what. The rooms, damp dirty floors with 4 walls with no screens in place and the worst...

We attended a wedding at Isla Verde. The staff was very friendly and super accommodating (even humoring a friend who went into the kitchen to make her own juice). Everything was laid back but efficient and the food was amazing. Thank you thank you!

I stayed at Isla Verde in July 2012. The location on the lake is absolutely beautiful, and the restaurant associated with Isla Verde has wonderful, homemade food. However, the accommodations were lacking. We stayed in the "suite". For the price, I expected a much nicer room. But it was really an overpriced dorm room, very open to the outdoors. There...

There are a few places in Santa Cruz I would rate very highly, but when it comes to food, I don't think anything compares with Isla Verde.

And if you don´t feel like moving just enjoy our lavish gardens; sunbathe, swim, kayak, take yoga, salsa or Spanish lessons, have a massage, a sauna or an open-air hot tub, enjoy our library and restaurant, bird watch, explore the trails around us or dive with our neighbors…We offer nine independent wooden cabins and two brand new apartments for families or groups. All are set on a hill, which ensures every one of them has a breathtaking view of Lake Atitlan, while being hidden and private from the rest of the hotel. Our rooms are decorated in a simple yet hip style, with Mayan woven materials and naïf paintings.Sunrise, sunset, midday or midnight, our lakeside lounge is the perfect place to sunbathe, go swimming, sip on a cocktail or a fresh fruit smoothie or just take in the majestic beauty of Lake Atitlan. Prefer a more secluded, private spot? You´ll find hammocks and loungers tucked into lush nooks all throughout our beautiful tropical gardens, and a wonderful yoga studio overlooking the lake which is free for our guests to enjoy.The patio below our slow-food restaurant is the ultimate spot to feast your eyes and your senses; come and enjoy what according to many— Rough Guide amongst others—is some of the best food you can find in Guatemala. Dine with the ultimate view, or just chill out and read a book. If you feel like lying around the patio next to the restaurant is stocked with pillows and cushions.
