We have been coming to Quinta for 20 years. The anticipation of beautiful gardens, comfortable and clean rooms and smiling, friendly service from long-term and loyal employees, many of whom we have come to know by name, make our stay that much more enjoyable. We are torn between wanting to keep the secret to ourselves (sometimes it's hard to get in!) and feeling obliged to let everyone know what a special place this is! Now with free wifi throughout, there is nothing left to be desired. It is our absolutely favourite place!

Stayed: August 2016, travelled as a couple

My family of 5 stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay! The grounds are impeccable, the pool very clean and the hammocks a nice touch. We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner during our stay and the food was well prepared and reasonably priced.

I have stayed here on two occasions, this time for a week in a casita. This place is heaven- incredible grounds, a great restaraunt, and an old colonial feel. It is incredible here. The people are wonderful. My daughter asked, just 20 minutes after we arrived, "daddy, can we live in Guatemala?" Good question!

Most buildings in Antigua look unassuming from the street. It is only when you open the gates and step inside that you discover green oases. This is true of Quinta as well, except even more so. Staying at the Quinta is like living in your own botanical paradise. Vegetation and flowers abound and are kept in immaculate condition by a team of gardeners who seemed to be busy daily. There were twists and turns of pathways with interesting Guatemalan art - sculptures and paintings - inside and out.

In addition to the beautiful surroundings, the rooms are spacious and clean. There are regular hotel rooms and "casitas" - two bedroom units with kitchen facilities, living room and, often, an outside terrace or balcony. The staff are friendly and helpful. All this and reasonable rates too! This was my second trip. I can see myself coming back here with family and renting a casita.

We spent a week in this lovely mini-resort. Upon arrival, we were a little uncertain because from the outside all you see is blank wall with a door. (We later discovered that this is true of nearly every property in Antigua because the town is still true to its Spanish colonial heritage.) Once inside, we were amazed. The property offers a variety of accommodations including a small one-story hotel, a few small suites with independent entrances to the gardens, and a few 2-bedroom casitas (small houses). My family rented two of the casitas for our party of three adults and three children. They were clean, comfortable, and very spacious with a Spanish colonial decor. The property also includes a small open air restaurant with a very limited, but delicious and inexpensive menu. We ate breakfast and lunch at the hotel restaurant most days and then had dinner in one of the restaurants in the town center.

While the accommodations were nice, the crown jewel of the property is its gardens. The gardens extend over a few acres and are absolutely beautiful. And because the entire property is surrounded by a 15' wall, it felt completely safe. We were comfortable allowing our children to play hide and seek out of our view even though we were just a few miles from Guatemala City, where our wealthy in-laws find it necessary to live in a compound with armed guards.

The property's safety is partially because Antigua feels like a different world than Guatemala City. Antigua's merchants make fun of the capital city's upper crust who bring their guards with them to the old city because Antigua is the kind of place where everyone is polite, and you can be safe even when walking alone after dark.

The property's location is not ideal, but its not bad. It is closer to the edge of town than to the central square, but it is less than a 10 minute walk to the heart of Antigua.

One caution: Americans are not the Quinta's target market. While the staff is all very friendly and welcoming, most speak very little English, and we didn't meet any who were proficient English speakers. We managed to communicate adequately, but occasionally leaned on a local relative to translate more complex topics. You would do best here if at least one member of your party speaks passable Spanish.

I would definitely recommend Antigua to anyone considering a trip to Central America, and I recommend Quinta de las Flores to anyone visiting Antigua. Just don't expect to see the "real" Guatemala without leaving Antigua. The city is a UN World Heritage Site (the original Spanish capital of Central America), and that heritage is maintained through strict regulation and a visible police presence. The heartbreaking poverty that is common in most of the country is kept at a distance from Antigua.
