Casa Encantada's staff is so personable. Candy went out of her way to make our stay amazing. She brought fresh squeezed OJ to our room when we arrived, tea at night in the living room and cool, tropical juice on the rooftop. Melvin was also very helpful. Much of the staff spoke English and Spanish, if you are from the States and speak little Spanish. There is a nice selection to choose from at breakfast on the rooftop which is also included in your booking fee. The waitresses who serve breakfast are very sweet too. Casa Encantada is walking distance to lots of historical sites, but not right in the center of all the action. Felt very safe while there. You can get quetzels from La Porta (sister hotel) and also use La Porta's pool, gym, bar and spa services, this was perfect. We utilized these La Porta's services some days and came back to quiet Casa E to sleep. Wonderful stay in a lovely city.
I had previously stayed at this hotel with some members of my Church, so on my recent trip to Guatemala, I made sure my plans included a stay here. Camino Real is listed as a 4 star hotel, but it is a 5 star in my book. The rooms are extremely comfortable, all of the staff are very nice, and the Jacuzzi is an excellent added touch. The breakfast there is awesome, and everything about this hotel is great. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Antigua, Guatemala!
Everything about this hotel was wonderful- from our check in, throughout our stay. Staff was friendly, location is ideal, courtyards are beautiful, very comfortable bed, & beautiful bathroom! Would definitely recommend this hotel to others visiting Antigua!
Serenity and Colonial charm lure many to Antigua. Its Baroque-style Catedral features 17th century ruins, and La Merced--with its wedding cake façade--has a fountain said to be the largest in Central America. Shop the Mercado for local crafts or hike a volcano for spectacular views. During Holy Week (Semana Santa) see processions over elaborate carpets of dyed sawdust and fresh flowers.
