TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Lake Atitlan, is not the easiest place to get to by car, but it is one of the most stunning places I have had the good fortune to see in my life. Casa Palopo is set on arguably the best spot on the lake. The food is excellent, the rooms are incredibly charming and the staff is excellent. We toured the lake, and enjoyed their boat dock access. The upper level pool is incredible! One warning there is no AC, but it gets very cool at night. I recommend arriving by car and see the sights I. The way, but leave by helicopter- save 4 hours and it is a stunning flight!

We stayed at Casa Palopo for 3 nights last week and it was fabulous! A few of us were not feeling well for some reason or another but the staff was so kind and took care of us so great! Carlos was particularly great! I would highly recommend staying here!

Arrived by boat and hiked up to Restaurant for lunch. Great view of the lake and all three volcanoes and fine funky restaurant. Food was very good but pricey. I had raviolis which were outstanding as was everything else except the pizza.

A beautifully appointed Relais et Chateaux property. Our villa room Toliman with a balcony was located up the hillside and had spectacular views of the lake. A large living room, kitchen, huge balcony, infinity pool, and covered terrace was just out side our door. Very delightful place to relax. Hotel has the feel of an exquisite private home with beautiful art, eg. A Botero painting. Staff take you in a Range Rover up and down the hillside to your room as the pathway is very steep. We walked it a few times mainly during the day. The dining area has tables outside and inside. Food is very good although the menu is limited. Some staff speak excellent English and others speak basic English. Friendly helpful staff. Need to be able to navigate stairs at this hotel to get to and from restaurant and rooms, etc.

No management presence during the entire stay, staff in the front desk doesn’t speak English and they are not knowledgeable about the area. The hotel is nice and the views are good but is not what you expect from a CR property.
