This is the most amazing small hotel with incredible views of Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes surrounding this beautiful lake. Every room has spectacular views- even the showers! The service is perfect and the food is amazing. We loved our day cruising around the lake in our private boat with Rodolfo. I would love to return!

I had the opportunity to spent one night at Casa Palopó and that was unbeatable. I chose this place for ask married to my girlfriend and I think this was a wise decision. The service is incredible, the location between three volcanos and in front of Atitlán Lake is very romantic and the views are unbeliavable.I just can recommend this...

People who complain about the stairs are missing the point, the rooms are terraced up the hill so each one gets the superb views. We were met as soon as we arrived and were offered a free upgrade. All through our visit the staff have been very friendly Service and setting at Casa Palopo Restaurant were perfect; the cheese plate...

Visited the restaurant for lunch. It´s really a great place, a shame that restaurant visitors could take a walk around, just the guests. The restaurant has a limited selection of options, but the food is really good. The views are breath taking! I would definitely recommend visiting the restaurant for the food and the views.

We stayed at Casa Palopo as a treat during our month long trip to Guatemala and Belize. The hotel enjoys a position above Lake Atitlan, but lies on the wrong side of the road around the lake. So, although the beautifully appointed dining room and open guest areas are well above the road, the lower guest rooms are far less...

We thank you for your comment which always helps us to improve the service. We are really sorry that your experience to Casa Palopo is so negative. Casa Palopo was an individual house and all the rooms are different, the room 5 San Juan is Deluxe and one of the smaller but we have just redone the bathroom, with a...

The hotel has a wonderful position with glorious views of the lake.The balcony of the room or the outside common areas are very well decorated and give access to the sunsets over the volcanoes on the opposite shore. Magical. The food in the restaurant was disappointing but overall an excellent hotel.

We loved our 2 night stay at Casa Palopo. I discovered the hotel through an article in Conde on the best lake views in the world and Casa Palopo did not disappoint!

This seven room boutique hotel sits on a hillside of Lake Atitlan with a gorgeous view of the surrounding dormant volcanoes. The morning views of the volcanoes are the best when the lake is almost. The service is sedately impeccable. Each breakfast (loved the French toast) and dinner is a gormet's delight. Enjoy a swim in the pool and relax...
