A note from Hotel Tolimán
Updated 14/07/21 Safety precautions are provided by the property and are not checked by Tripadvisor for accuracy.


A rustic and comfortable family-run hotel built on the grounds of a former coffee factory. While its extensive gardens and lake views foster a feeling of seclusion and relaxation, our central location in a Guatemalan town unspoiled by tourism lets you experience traditional village life. An excellent place to undertake outdoor adventures and eat delicious local food, supplied mostly by our own organic garden.

Toliman Overall disappointed. I chose Hotel Toliman as the last stop on our trip because it looked very peaceful online. We got a king room which was beautiful, however, it was right next to the busy road that is loud with people and traffic. On the other side of the room is the laundry service. We are so happy the women sound like they’re having fun but that room also created a lot of noise and was on the other side of the wall where we lay our heads to sleep. I am pregnant, so a lot of this trip we spent taking naps in our room. Napping was difficult at Hotel Toliman. The most disappointing aspect was the smoke smell entering the room from either the cracks between the front door and wall or through the fireplace. There was no flue, so I couldn’t close off the fireplace to prevent the smoke from coming in. Again, I’m pregnant, so that’s why it was bothering me so much. It’s a no smoking hotel so I’m not sure where someone was smoking. DON’T use the hotel’s private car service. We got a private car ride to the airport and the driver stopped at a mechanic before leaving town to fix something wrong with the tire. Made us worried for the three hour drive to the airport. The driver stopped again and another man switched places with him as our driver. Later on, we pulled over on a busy highway to put coolant in the car. Then again, we stopped at a gas station to have the attendant do some work on the car. There was no communication with us about this vehicle’s problems until we were already en route. The positives are the staff, restaurant, and pool. Beautiful grounds. I just wish it was clear on the website that the hotel is NOT secluded and is actually just smack dab in a busy, loud town. The website says “tranquillity and serenity” and I fell for that marketing. I’d recommend La Fortuna if you’re trying to have a peaceful experience at the lake.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. I have stayed here year after year and Hotel Tolimán is truly my home away from home. The setting is like paradise with hummingbirds flitting about, beautiful views, fantastic food at the restaurant and lovely spacious rooms. However, the greatest part of this hotel is the staff who work here, they are all WONDERFUL people.

When you stay at Hotel Toliman in San Lucas Toliman you feel you become part of a new family. The waiters call you by name, even endearing names; the gardener, Jose Luis, shows you with pride but also humbleness, his amazing organic garden; the hotel manager, Chati, makes sure you have the most special experience, not only ensuring your accommodations are superb but also warmly greeting you at every encounter, giving you her full attention and 100% of her time anytime of the day, in spite of her likely busy schedule. My husband and I participated in a mosaic community project in town so we spent a whole week at the hotel. Today, when we were leaving Tolimán on our way back to Boston, in the US, we got from the hotel staff, gifts, we got beautiful letters, we got loving hugs, and we shared beautiful tears of gratefulness.

Small hotel on lake Atitlan. The staff is absolutely amazing. They make you feel as family. The restaurant serves international food and its really very good. The view from the restaurant is beautiful. The restaurant features an organic vegetable garden that provides ingredients to its dishes.

We have traveled to Hotel Toliman before. It is a must for my 93 year old mother. The staff remembered our family. The hotel has beautiful gardens and orchard. Most of the produce is grown there, making the restaurant’s food fresh and delicious. The views of the lake are spectacular. You cannot avoid bird watching everywhere you go. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The staff is helpful and very friendly. We will return!
