Pleasant stay on the lake and easy to visit nearby villages by boat taxi. The views are amazing. Comfortable rooms. Food is okay. Staff is well trained. We loved the hot tub in the evening overlooking the lake I did not like the spiders

We stayed 3 nights at Lake Atitlan area during our trip to Guatemala. One day we went to have a lunch at La Casa del Mundo Hotel. I don't know about the hotel inside, but the place of this property is absolutely marvelous. To sit on the balcony, have a lunch and enjoy the view of the lake – couldn't...

We were travelling to Lake Atitlan on a shuttle and happen to be sitting beside the owner of Case Del Mundo, (who, along with his wife and locals, built it himself). He was very modest about the place and undersold its beauty. We decided to try it out and stay the night. This place is beautiful! Every room, every building,...

We took a boat over for lunch and stayed the afternoon. Really picturesque hillside retreat with multiple grottos among the hillside to sit and visit with friends. The lunch was very good and service perfect. Even if you are not staying there it is well worth a visit for lunch and lingering.

I have stayed at this hotel twice. Food is high quality, view breathtaking and staff attentive. Lots of balconies to rest and relax. Kayaks available, boat dock for arrival from Pana, showers divine. Cash only. Will be back.

We were looking forward to our second stay at Casa del Mundo and were not disappointed. The place is a gem of a small hotel with comfortable rooms, quiet surroundings, and excellent food. I especially appreciated the window screens (rare for Guatemala) the hot water and private nooks where you can relax. The staff were uniformly friendly and very responsive...

Just went for a couple hours and lunch. The food was delicious. The prices very reasonable, The views of the lake spectacular. The service excellent. We had eggplant parmesan, enchiladas guatemaltecas and micheladas. We strolled around the hotel and its beautiful gardens. I highly recommend this place.

We have visited Lake Atitlan 5 times, and this was our favorite stay so far. Casa del Mundo is gorgeous, with the most beautiful gardens. The food at the restaurant is excellent, mattresses were comfortable, and best of all, there were SCREENS on the windows! I have a little trouble sleeping, and really appreciated the 9:30 pm "quiet time" (although...

It's my second stay at Casa del Mundo and it's honestly just as pleasant and relaxing as the first time i visited 2 years ago. Unfortunately, this time the stunning view of the volcanoes were obscured by cloud. Still, it's beautiful and ever so tranquil. Its position above the lake provide hotel guests with sweeping views from its many patios,...
