Hotel Atitlán is set on a picturesque ancient coffee plantation on the shores of Lake Atitlán, with spectacular views of both the lake and the surrounding volcanoes. The individually designed rooms have balconies with lake views and are traditionally furnished with locally handcrafted furniture and hand-woven Mayan textiles. The hotel features beautifully maintained botanical gardens with over 600 species of plants.
Hopkins Bay Resort has a picturesque setting on a palm-fringed beach contrasted by a lush jungle backdrop yet is just a 15-minute walk from the main town. One-, two- and three- bedroom beach houses are dotted throughout manicured gardens and overlook the ocean. All are individually decorated and feature high wooden beamed ceilings with a typical tropical Belizean décor and either a terrace or balcony. The beachside restaurant serves regional cuisine including local Garifuna delicacies with an emphasis on fresh seafood.
Sitting in the tranquil hills above the Copan valley, Hotel Hacienda San Lucas, is a rustic but charming 100-year-old, family-owned house situated directly above the world-renowned Mayan ruins of Copan. Rooms are simply furnished and lighting is provided by solar lamps and candles. While atmospheric, this means actual illumination is very dim in the evenings and at night. Bathrooms feature hot water showers but hot water is not available in the bathroom washbasins.
El Meson de Maria is a lovely small hotel, located in an old house in the centre of historic Antigua. It offers real local character and traditional furnishings. The rooms and suites are decorated with local crafts, and the suites include a private terrace and jacuzzi. The hotel features a central courtyard and terraces on which to relax and appreciate the views of the old town and surrounding volcanoes. This is a character property and individual room styles and sizes will vary. Breakfast is served in the dining room or courtyard, and while other meals are not available at the hotel, many of the local restaurants will deliver meals which you can then enjoy in the dining areas of the property, or your room.
Black Rock Lodge is a rustic yet comfortable eco-lodge nestled amid a 242-acre rainforest reserve, high above the banks of the Macal river in the Maya mountains. The property has 13 individual cabins which feature small terraces with a hammock and offer views of the rainforest, river or Black Rock canyon. The river view restaurant serves local and international cuisine. The reserve features a number of hiking trails, ideal for viewing some of the 300 species of resident and migratory birds.
