Hotel Nuestro Sueno was a very safe, welcoming hotel with a gorgeous view. Come here for an authentic experience of Lake Atitlan. I borrowed a kayak for free for over an hour and it was one of the top 5 best travel experiences I’ve ever had. The lake is breathtaking!
I was staying alone and my room was huge with 2 beds, one being a full, and a jacuzzi with a view of the water. I would say don’t underestimate the “off the beaten path” nature of San Antonio. It adds a step to any excursions you may want to do (you need to go into Panajachel to leave via boats to the islands with the popular activities.) That being said, when I did visit San Pedro and Panajachel to climb Volcan San Pedro, I IMMEDIATELY was extremely grateful to be staying at Hotel Nuestro Sueño in San Antonio. The vibe in San Pedro was totally sleazy and there’s no way I would have gotten the incredible waterfront location that I did here if I stayed there. Also taking a pickup from San Antonio to Pana was easy enough with a 2 min walk and 20-30 min pickup ride for less than $1 USD. San Antonio is minimally touristy, which is a pro, but also there are not a ton of restaurants or bars around, so I stuck to eating at this hotel and one down the road.
At Hotel Nuestro Sueño I felt like family and was well attended to, but don’t expect to be waited on - feel free to ask for things and get to know the family who lives there for an very unique and worthwhile experience.
