I stayed at Paco Real for 2 weeks and since my first day was treated as a member of their family...it rained for several days and the confy homely feeling, the fire place, wonderful food and the daily glass of wine were essential to make my stay in San Marcos remarkable...I thank the new family made, the lovely staff, amazing...

I stayed here in 2010 and was underwhelmed by the place - the beds seriously needed replacing. It now has a new owner and I ate in their restaurant a number of times. Might try staying there again the next time I'm in San Marcos.

Stayed here one night and ate at the restaurant once and overall it was a really good experience. The room was very basic and had a bathroom and no shower but it was pretty cheap so I didn't mind. The food was great as well. I had stayed at various other hotels around San Marcos and found good internet to...

We ordered three types of pasta Carbonara (50Q) Pomedore (37Q) Paco Real (47Q). All tasted very good and portions were generous. Service was attentive and food came reasonable fast. The place is clean, and has a lovely atmosphere to it. Worth a visit.

I have stayed at Hotel Paco Real three times now, and it never disappoints. The rooms are lovely and surround by a beautiful garden/courtyard with a waterfall and a tranquil seating area where one can have a picnic or a bottle of wine. It is quiet, much quieter than many other hotels on the lake, yet very central. And has...

the grounds are large and offer some buffer from the surroundings. While this town has no cars down in this zone and is quieter than many Guatemalian towns, it can still be a little noisy by American standards. The room was pleasantly painted, clean and there were hot showers. The bed was softer than we liked. There are pleasant outdoor...

the place I had booked was not available so I stayed here. It turned out quite nice. My room was a little chilly, due to the cold night air, but my bed was prepared with blankets. I slept well. The village is a bit noisy, but that kind of thing is to be expected in a real village, so I...

The staff at this tidy little jungle lodge go out of there way to make your stay a warm homey experience. The awesome(I mean awesome) food and the warm welcomes will have me returning to this low- midrange choice. The secure, warm rooms manage to escape the perennial moisture problems from which other accommodations suffer in this area. Check out...

My wife and I stayed the weekend here. The room was charming in a camping/jungle sort of way by they are expanding so some minor construction going on. Some rooms don't have showers, which was fine. In the shared shower, if you let the water come out slowly, it will become warmer. There is a heater at the end of...

“Our room had a sink and toilet. We shared the shower in the downstairs facility. An outdoor lamp shone in our room which might bother some people. Our room I think was #4. The downstairs rooms I think have full bathrooms in them. We were happy with our selection and most especially, the price.”
