We stayed at this oasis on the shores of beautiful Lago De Atitlan a few months back. This hotel is unlike any we've ever stayed at. The staff was wonderful, customers come first here, including the owner, who was able to accommodate us with a discount because of construction taking place near our Cascada room. We also had to leave...

Beautiful place, a piece of art. Built against the mountain, the vegetation ia amazing, the garden is a great place to relax in. Each room is unique. Mine had a terrace with a picture perfect view of Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes. It was a woderful place to watch the sunsets, and meditate at dawn. Service is great and very...

First, let me start by saying that this is BY FAR the best place to stay in San Marcos. We stayed in Sirena which had a magical view of the lake, the room was beautiful, comfortable and the bed was dreamy. But, the best part about Hotel Aaculaax is Byron. Byron works the night shift and watches over the hotel,...

I'm not sure when I fell in love with San Marcos, but it was sometime on the footpath between the dock and Aaculaax. It's a place where coffee grows like weeds, local children run laughing though the streets, and the home of Aaculaax, a perfect blend of western comfort and Guatemalan charm. We reserved Sirena, and boy am I glad...

Stayed at Aaculaax for a wedding - Lily, Olga and the rest of the team were more than accommodating. They were the definition of hospitality (even when we perhaps didn't deserve it - the middle of the night, in the rain, we come back in 5 groups instead of one, order 10 bottles of wine and take 20 minutes trying...

My husband and I got married on the lake and we stayed in El Mirador (the honeymoon suite) at Aaculaax and our family filled up every other room at the hotel (except one, I think). We had an amazing experience! The owners and staff at Aaculaax are amazing, helpful, and really care about their guests. Lily came up every morning...

Look, it is a nice place, and our room had good views. But we arrived soaking wet at 4pm and were told we'd have to wait (either for half an hour, or until half past, my Spanish isn't great). Either way, it was over an hour. We just had to stand there, soaking. No one was around except a junior...

This was by far one of the best places to stay in Lake Atitlan. We went for a friend's wedding and the majority of the party stayed here. Lily, the owner was super accommodating and the rooms/view are to die for. We stayed in their Sonrita suite and really enjoyed the large windows, great patio and killer shower, which was...

We just stayed at Aaculaax for the third time. We were so impressed with the overall experience we brought my in laws back to show them!

We stayed at the Hotel Aaculaax for 10 days on a recent visit to San Marcos. I cannot say enough good things about our time there. Since we made our reservations late and they did not have one room available for ten days, we were in 3 different rooms during our stay, the Mirador, Sirena and Alain, but this just...
