TravelPod Member ReviewsSantander Plaza Hotel Guatemala City
This place was beautiful. We stayed in cabins. My only complaint was the space. We were like sardines in a can, but I guess they really know how to maximize space! The food was delicious and the staff was very courteous. Because it was gated and guarded, we felt very secure there.

The 5am wake up call was not nice after only a couple of hours sleep. Luckily the minibus stopped at out lodge first and I was able to nab a seat in the front, leg room and a window - massive score! I did feel a little sorry for some of the guys cramped in the back, but not enough to swap seats with them! En route to Antigua we went through Guatemala City, the traffic was horrendous! We were there just after lunch so i dread to ...
... looking at what must have been there before the earthquakes. We took a break about 3pm at the Rainbow cafe and had yummy nachos, humus and pita bread to tide us over till dinner. Then we looked at the last few ruins and actually only saw a few from the outside as we felt we didnt need to pay and see them all. After a late dinner our planned early bedtime didn't eventuate and thus a 3.30am alarm woke us for the 4am shuttle to cross into ...
