Stayed here one night during my trip to Lago Atitlán - had a nice time here, the owner is very friendly and helpful and the little houses cute and cozy. Good internet access and the food offered in the restaurant seemed some kind of famous (especially the hand made pizza). The village people as a whole seemed a little bit...

Paid 70 quetzals for a private room (dorm was full), so cant complain! Nice service, excellent location and wifi also. The inner yard is so tranquilo and relaxing, but still in the middle,of the "action" of this tiny town. Very good value for the money. Recommended! Bring earplugs, if you are a light sleeper as the town dogs keeps barking...

This is the first time in over ten years of being a traveller that I've felt the need to leave a bad review of a place. I booked a room for 6 nights in this pretty guesthouse in March. The Swiss guy who owns it told me I could have the room for 90 Q because there was a shower...

We enjoyed this simple nice cabin hotel in San Marcos by lake Atitlan. We had a nice room with en suite bathroom, with hot water and internet. The atmosphere is friendly , the owners are very nice and helpful and the prices are good. I wish we could have stayed there longer

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...

“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.”
