Might have liked a little more info when we got there on getting to town and back and some basics that I read later in a book in the room...remember to ask questions!!
The views from our deck, swimming off the dock, the walk to Santa Caterina and kayaking were all fabulous. Dinner and breakfast at our villa was such a delicious treat.

Because of the location of the facility, there was a lot of steep climbing - all worth it - but people should know before they go just in case there's an issue. REALLU WORTH IT.
The view, the tranquility, the service, Leslie, Rosa, having breakfast made on out deck, the comfort, pretty much everything.

The property's dog uses the sofa on our balcony as his bed. Unfortunately, we did not notice all the dog hairs before sitting there and got up with a few insect bites.
Casa Jade was wonderful - the bedroom, the eponymous bathroom, the well appointed kitchen. The views are magnificent! The tranquil setting, a balm to the soul. The staff is very accommodating, even lending us local cell phones. Breakfast was delicious! Be aware, though, that the villas perch on the steep lakeside. There are many, many stairs to climb!

The amazingView, awsome staff

Physically challenging to get there, and very steep location, so going out by boat, car or walking was challenging.
The view was breathtaking, our villa was beautiful, service and food excellent.

Everything was great, staff was amazing and facilities were good with free wifi, movies, hot tub, kayaks, etc. Only negative was distance to other things. Pana or a nearby larger hotel will cost you $9-$18 US each way, depending on where you want to go. Small price to pay for this amazing place though!

The Manager, Leslie seemed very rushed when we arrived to the point that did not received us in the reception area, very odd, as people from Guatemala are very friendly and welcoming. Later on we found out that there were movies and a cell phone, available upon request.
Beautiful room with an impressive look of lake Atitlan, beautiful gardens. Hotel 4 kilometer outside Panajachel (close, but not too close) Kayaks to visit the lake are available (not extra-cost). The other personal was very friendly and helpful.

I would think the view from our cottage (Bamboo) is one of the most spectacular of any place on earth. The design to capture that view is perfect. This setting needs promotion.

Stuff, rooms are disgusting and filthy
The beach is nice but there are much nicer

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Jade cottage. The views were breathtaking, the rooms were lovely and clean and the cooking was delicious. Leslie was incredibly helpful, always answering her phone, and was able to answer any questions we had, helped us arrange meals, tours, and shuttles. Everyone who works there is kind and helpful, we had an amazing experience and hope to return! :)

No mosquito net around guest bed (it would have been so nice!), in late July this was a necessity. Luckily we had repellent spray.
Everything. You will feel like you are in your private home in one of the most beautiful / relaxing settings on Earth. Private security guard roams the area 24/7 (not that the area seems dangerous at all) but he's also there for any questions. You really feel like family staying in a guest home, the staff will take such great care of you, the owners puppy "Frida" naps in the shade throughout the 4 villa grounds. Kayaks are available for guest use free of charge. Renovations were top notch, better than a Hilton Garden style in the U.S. My wife and I have traveled to Italy, Turks & Caicos, and this destination matches both with the "take your breath away and relax" factor.

Distance from town and available transportation.

Internet was a problem--we only had it for one day (out of two) and was very slow when we did have it.
We stayed in El Mirador and our friends stayed in Ba'lam Ya--both were clean, spacious,comfortable, beautiful and had gorgeous views of the lake. We highly recommend having their chefs come and cook dinner--every bit of it was delicious and more than worth the price!

Can't think of anything to complain about.
I loved the layout, the way it is landscaped and the views from the room. Coolest little kitchen with an unbelievable view of the lake, two and half walls in the kitchen are all window, then it extended into a private outdoor patio and on the other side it connected the bedroom and kitchen by a balcony.

wifi could have been better
beautiful location; privacy; good staff

Not for people with mobility issues. Minor maintenance needs to be done - cracked sink in bathroom, thatch coming off roof in spots.
Amazing location and site near but not in Panajachel. Spacious and well appointed Villas. Excellent staff, lovely grounds, and great cooks available for private dining. Manager excellent at explaining resources and arranging for drivers and private boat as needed. Excellent views from all areas of unit.

If you are looking to be close to town this is not the place to stay. It is a bit of a trek.
Beautiful place. Very tranquil. The kitchen was fully stocked with all needs. The staff come to your place to make breakfast. It is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
