Hotel y Restaurante Bambu, Santiago Atitlan
Not great
The staff was great! However, they could not make up for the mold covered bathroom or the rock hard bed. The location is not great. Not too many choices for restaurants. We do not recommend this side of the lake.

Wonderful setting on the lake - don't miss it!
We really enjoyed the Hotel Bambu. The staff was wonderful and helpful. The hotel was quiet and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant for most of our meals - as there were not a lot of choices in town. My only suggestions is that the restaurant offer more authentice Guatemalan food for us foodies. We basically ate breakfasts, hamburgers and pasta at the restaurant since there were not many exotic choices. The breakfasts were hardy and good.

Great views for some rooms
We had 2 rooms. Both were booked as lake view but only one was. The lake view room was great, large, with wonderful views. It was called casa de tush. I recommend this room. The other was small and no view. It was left poorly attended with out clean towels and toilet paper. When requested it took ours to get them.

Damp rooms let down an otherwise beautiful hotel
The situation on the lakeside, the gardens and pool were idyllic. The staff were delightful and couldn't do enough for us. The food, especially the breakfasts, were very good and the chef was happy to do a pepian especially for us on our our last evening. The town was interesting, a ten minute walk away. Hotel is able to arrange lake tours and transfers at reasonable prices. What let everything down were the damp rooms: everything was damp, including the bed, bedding and our clothing. There was no heating in the room or ventilation in the bathroom as the window had long since ceased to open. All this led to the dampness and mound growth on the walls of the bedroom and bathroom. The rooms desperately need investment and renovation.
