The hotel is set on the grounds of a former coffee plantation (no pun intended). It overlooks Lake Atitlan. The room was small but comfortable for the week I was there with storage for belongings. The grounds are beautiful with many interesting places to wander or just sit. The organic vegetable garden was WONDERFUL! So nice to have fresh salads...

Reviewed 13 July 2016

Last month my family and I came to Hotel Toliman after reading the reviews and seeing the pics online. As we pulled up, we were unsure what to expect since the outside can be misleading as to what lies inside. Lucky for us, Alexis came out to greet us and welcomed us to take a peek at the rooms and...

I can't say enough good things about my stay at the Hotel Toliman located in San Lucas Toliman on Lake Atilan. I traveled with a group of 12. Before the trip, I had concerns about whether I would be able to eat much of the food in the restaurant. I have food allergies to gluten and dairy. Most of the...

This is the only place in San Lucas Toliman that I would voluntarily stay in. The setting in a beautiful garden is really nice. The rooms are clean and adequate but not in any way luxurious. The food is good and nicely presented. I am not sure how many times I have stayed here, but it must be at least...

David, Thanks for all the times you have stayed with us here in Hotel Toliman. The setting is one that must be very familiar by now. As you probably know already, the hotel was built on a former coffee plantation and has an overall rustic vibe. Our rooms are without TVs to provide a place for relaxation unlike many of...

I have been visiting San Lucas as a medical volunteer for many years. Spending time at the Toliman, as well as in the communities around San Lucas, is a perfect vacation. The grounds, the view of the lake, the organic garden,amazing birds, kayaking, and friendly staff are exceptional in the already pretty exceptional Lake Atitlan area. San Lucas is a...

Nice rooms, excellent/attentive staff. In walking distant to beach front and many small stores. Restaurant in hotel has good food (hence the 4/5) but great desserts. Pool is clean and breath taking view from the deck.

My wife and I, our son and friend had a wonderful stay at Hotel Toliman. The restaurant served delicious food served in real style and with a flare. The bird watching was tremendous and we were able to arrange for a beautiful boat trip to Santa Catarina.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A rustic and comfortable family-run hotel built on the grounds of a former coffee factory. While its extensive gardens and lake views foster a feeling of seclusion and relaxation, our central location in a Guatemalan town unspoiled by tourism lets you experience traditional village life. An excellent place to undertake outdoor adventures and eat delicious local food, supplied mostly by our own organic garden.
