We had a great time in Antigua, which is a lovely, small, and welcoming town. The town is focused on tourism so there is a wide variety of accommodations and restaurants. (Our tastes are more toward luxury than economy, so prices at restaurants we used were more comparable to US prices.) We loved the friendly street dogs, which are amazingly clean and affectionate. The cobblestone streets are charming but walking around was difficult for my wife who has mobility issues. (A wheelchair will not work on cobblestones and the sidewalks are too narrow and uneven.) Fortunately the town is very compact which facilitates short walks and taxi fare into town from the hotel is only about $5 or $6 dollars. We always felt safe everywhere we went. Unfortunately we visited in June, which is the rainy season, so the nearby volcano was always covered by clouds except for short time periods. Still, the sights were interesting, the jewelry stores (lots of jade & silver) were fun for looking & shopping, and the food was great. Oh, transfers from the airport ( Guatemala City) to hotel were seamless with no anxious moments at all. We had a great time.

The hotel is well located. The spa area is a little dirty with slippery floors. It really needs an update. The rooms are comfortable. Don't expect much with your VIP+ upgrade, nothing really special in it.

The staff were so nice to us... went above and beyond to help us! One of the nights of our stay my daughter threw up in the bed, and they sent a guy up to mop and change the sheets within minutes (boy did we give him a big tip! :)). And then the night after we had already checked out they let us hang out in the lobby with our two little kids until 8pm, since we were taking an overnight bus back to Antigua. And they drove us to the bus station and helped us unload our bags too.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful. The view of the lake is amazing. The staff is cordial and friendly. The only thing that I was taken aback by was the food which was extremely expensive. We paid $200 plus for buffet dinner and the next day we found a restaurant nearby where we only spent $45. They were both clean and friendly and the food was actually better at the outside restaurant. The other restaurant even had free access to pools (adult and children) a play area, hammocks to rest. It was just amazing.
