So....no one tells you how hard it is to get to the grounds. Once you're there, the grounds are beautiful. Parking is nowhere near the hotel, but they do have someone come with a dolly and take your luggage to the hotel (not to your room). Very little lighting on your walk into the property. Watch your step as there are dogs everywhere. Yes, they provide breakfast with your stay, but it is vegan so the menu is very limited. The food you do get, is very tasty. The staff is extremely friendly. We stayed in the Sirena Suite and at $200 a night, it wasn't worth the money. The best part of that room is the shower by far! They do have hot water and it's very spacious. Cut into the rocks of the mountain, it was like no other we've stayed in. We had our son with us so we needed the extra bed. What you also don't know or really see from the photos is that the upstairs room in that suite is not enclosed. The top part of the room is open to the elements and becomes extremely cold this time of year. Our son was up all night cold, listening to howling dogs and being eaten by mosquitos even though we used repellent. It made for a very very unpleasant night. He eventually moved into our room, but the night was lost. The 60 stairs up to that suite are very steep and not well lit. I recommend anyone staying in this room, be very very careful. They get slippery when they're wet which makes them more dangerous.

Staying at Lush was one of the most amazing experiences. The rooms are simple and straightforward and you are literally surrounded by beautiful flowers and gardens. The beds are comfortable, but I do have to agree with other reviewer‘s that you can hear the conversations of the guests in the room next to you. The walls are pretty thin. The breakfast is great, make sure you try the Chia seed pancakes, they are to die for. The dinner menu left a lot to be desired so my friend and I dined at neighboring restaurants. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Lush is conveniently located a five minute walk from the port, however you will have to walk through several alleyways to get there. My friend and I felt relatively safe but make sure you bring a flashlight so you can see at night.

Lush atitlan is one of the best places around lake atitlan. Located in the town of San Marcos lush is the best place to stay without a doubt. It's full of trees nature and picturesque scenery it's lovely. The staff are amazing especially the guy at reception who's English is so amazing! He can help you with anything you need and gives excellent advice on the surrounding areas. Lush also has a restaurant which is plant based full of amazing whole foods and excellent juices. All of the food is made at lush and so tasty. Lush was an excellent place to stay I truly recommend it.

Way overpriced for the holidays. No breakfast. Reception charges a deposit for the room key. The Front Desk manager was completely unwelcoming. The setting is beautiful and the rooms are interesting, but the overall experience felt more like a money-making venture than a hotel that is truly passionate about guests.
