I have stayed here a few times. Yes, the service is slow. So is everything in San Marcos. You will need to relax, don't expect anything in this town to move over a snails pace, and you'll be fine. The hotel has been a decent price, nice grounds and clean with friendly Guatemalan service (unless you are a grumpy tourist....

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel 4 days and 3 nights. We arrived earlier than check in time so we went to the terrace in front of the lake for a coffee while we waited we end up staying there even after they said our room was ready! The location is perfect, just steps away from the main...

When arriving it looks like a great place, right at the Lake and with a lovely garden and restaurant at the dock. But to my opinion its really overpriced for the room facilities. The sauna and kayaks are included and great! But the staff is superslow and not very eager to 'serve' they lack any effort or interest. Also for...

This place is supposedly one of the more exclusive places in San Marcos de la laguna in Lake Atitlan and they have no doubt the advantage of offering the best views. The views only are worth a 5/5. However this is when I'll tell you our pitiful experience with the day staff, the food, the service and their lack of...

Posada Schuman is located right outside the dock so it's easy to find if you arrive late at night (like we did). The room we got was extremely cute with Guatemalan style accessories (though a bit smelly, we had to keep the window open). The breakfast area is amazing - you can see the whole lake!

This hotel has the most amazing views of the lake and setting. The grounds are well kept up and the staff and management are always friendly and willing to help the guests. This might be the best place to stay in San Marcos!

When we arrived at Posada Schumann, we went to the reception and had to sit and wait for 10 minutes before anybody arrived to check us in. We were eventually greeted by a lady who didn't acknowledge us with a, 'hello', but instead with, 'you have to pay now.' Ok. We then asked for a map, which we were told...

The economy rooms (with shared bathrooms) was 100Q a night in Oct. It was basic but clean and nicely decorated. They have a sauna and a restaurant but I did not use either so I cannot comment on them. The receptionist that I spoke to spoke very little English but was very helpful. The hotel is only steps away from...

The room is pastoral, well designed. The hotel is on the lake so it's beautiful and romantic. The hotel is very quite and it feel so spiritual. We actually book second night without planing. Shower is like everywhere in Guatemala, not really hot water but we got use to it.

Excellent accommodations right on Lake Attitlan. Chalet-type lodgings-some with own terrace overlooking the lake. Beautiful grounds, quiet, on-site Mayan-type sauna. Stayed at Hostel San Marcos prior to arriving at Schumann-believe me, it's worth the extra money to stay here. The workers even brought us our morning coffee to our room. Extremely friendly atmosphere.
