Okay hotel, not exceptional.

Reviewed 8 january, 2020

Pretty basic rooms, but tidy and had great advantage of an excellent hot, high pressure shower. Location by the lake is good, but Santa Catarina is pretty small and devoid of any other reasonable options for eating out or accessing other services (you'll need to head to Pana). The restaurant was okay; food generally of reasonable quality, but overpriced. One feels the hotel takes advantage of its relative isolation and lack of competition. We arrived to find our inclusive breakfasts, were limited to three options off the breakfast menu. Not a huge problem, but this was not apparent before arrival. The grounds are very nice and well-kept. The pools are excellent, especially the heated pool and, as a family, we enjoyed using them on numerous occasions. Hotel staff are pleasant and friendly. I noted previous reviews commented on patchy Wifi, but we found it excellent throughout the hotel and its grounds. Would we stay again? We enjoyed our four nights, but would probably opt for another option in a different settlement should we return.

Great base to explore Lake Atitlan

Reviewed 31 july, 2019

We stayed as a family of four at Villa Santa Catarina for 2 nights during a tour of Guatemala. It was the perfect base to explore Lake Atitlan. We had organised a boat from the jetty a 1 min stroll from the hotel to take us to San Antonio Palopo and Santiago Atitlan – perfect way to spend the day (all organised by our on the ground tour guide Oscar from STP Guatemala). The village of Santa Catarina is small – really the hotel being the only place to stay. It’s wonderful to stroll through and see how people leave day to day lives, visit the church and the small cultural centre up some steps and a path behind the village square. Villa Santa Catarina is a wonderful oasis centered around a pool (which is very cold but invigorating!), a much warmer geo-thermally heated relaxation pool and built in the Spanish colonial style. Rooms are simple, beautifully clean and each with a patio or balcony. We were offered a choice of rooms on arrival too! The menu is simple but lots of Guatemalan delicacies to choose from and the restaurant overlooking the pool, lake and volcanoes is pretty special! Definitely, a great place to stay to explore the lake from and much quieter than it's busier more hectic neighbouring towns.

Beautiful Hotel and great Restaurant

Reviewed 29 july, 2019

A stunning boutique hotel in Santa Catarina Polopó. The grounds are very well kept, heated pools and a great restaurant. We met some firends who were staying there (we were staying at a different hotel in Pana) and almost regreted not choosing this property. Santa Catalina is more secluded and quiet than Panajachel, so it depends on what you like. Here you won´t find as many dining options. but the hotel´s restaurant is very very good.

Peaceful hotel

Reviewed 4 march, 2019

We were lucky enough to be given rooms 72 &73 which were in the casita. They were large with a small terrace and seating areas and big bathrooms with a fabulous powerful shower. Very nice rooms. We knew the Wi-fi only worked in the main areas which is not ideal but it’s a small hotel so it’s not far to go and it’s a pleasant area to sit in. Breakfast was good although you might want to ask them to retoast the bread so that it is hot. The coffee sadly was dreadful! Dinner was good but it is only 10 minutes to Panajachel where there is more choice and more of a buzz.

Bad experience

Reviewed 3 february, 2019

During a trip to Central America we stayed in villa Santa Catarina by Atitlan lake for 2 nights. What a huge gap between the look and the quality of this hotel. Very nice From the the outside, but very poor breakfast stale bread and poor buffet. The towels were not replaced (we found the “new” towels nicely arranged on our bed to be wet) No WiFi in the rooms, and the one at the restaurant unreliable. Keep away!
