We recently stayed at this great property in Antigua, Guatemala. We were traveling with our whole family - Mom, Dad and three children in their late teens and early 20s. The home was a great family respite with it's very comfortable lounging areas for relaxing and having fun. We also rented the extra house for extended family members. They loved that small and very complete cottage area. During our stay, we also enjoyed the heated pool. We basked in the sunshine surrounded by unbelievably lavish flowers in the garden. We love that part of the home.
The maid in the house was very, very nice and helped with everything. She cooked us a great Guatemalan meal that we all thoroughly enjoyed - Pepian. All in all, I highly recommend this property. It's safe, secure and well worth the price.
My sister and I came with our families for a wedding and stayed at El Suspiro. This place is ridiculously beautiful. Neither my words nor the pictures would do describing its beauty justice. It is close to main town, but in a safe and secluded gated area, which made me feel so secure with our 4 little girls (ages 2,3, 6 and 8) who were with us. Guatemala is amazing and there is so much to do close to this property. On days when the kids were fussy, we would simply stay put and enjoy the incredible gardens or swim in the pool.
The owner was almost like a secondary trip planner for us - she raised her kids there and goes above and beyond with making sure you have any information you need. She even arranged transportation for us - we were spoiled. The housekeeper Marta is perhaps the best perk of the house. She is there often and is willing to help in any way - including cooking delicious food for a small fee. We don't speak any spanish, but we figured out how to communicate with her and she helped us get around.
You won't find a better deal for your money. Our extended family stayed at some of the nicest resorts in antigua, and this place blew them all away. If you are considering, just book it and you can thank yourself later :)
Our family of six had a magical two-week sojourn at El Suspiro - this beautifully appointed and well-kept villa had everything we needed and more! Upon arrival, its central courtyard and rose petal-filled fountain took our breath away. The rooms are all spacious, the kitchen is well equipped and the gardens are enchanting. The outdoor sitting room quickly became a family favorite, as did the vaulted-ceiling breakfast room. Within a 15-20 minute walk from the central plaza, the house is located in a safe, gated community - away from all noise, yet close enough to walk everywhere. Although the photos accurately represent the house, they do not convey the sense of peace and serenity that we felt while there. During the first week, we took day trips to Tikal, Lake Atitlán, Guatemala City, Chichicastenango and Pacaya Volcano. During the second week, Holy Week, we visited a coffee plantation and a textile cooperative as well as took part in many of the celebrations and processions in and around Antigua. Having walked many hours in the sun, it was a treat to get back to El Suspiro for a dip in the pool and some R&R in one of its many beautifully decorated rooms. The gardener made sure the pool was always ready for the kids to swim in and the housekeeper was just a charm. She even surprised us by having our laundry done at the end of the day! My parents and sister joined us for a few days, during our second week, and stayed in the Casita by the pool. We appreciated having a large dining room table to be able to enjoy our meals together. On most days, we had two meals at the house. Got lots of freshly baked bread, not far from the house, and a small truck selling fresh fruit and vegetables came by the house, which saved us a long walk back from the grocery store and market! The owner provided lots of helpful information, such as the schedule of Holy Week activities and a map of the city, and was a pleasure to work with. We would love to return to Antigua, in part, to stay again at El Suspiro! We highly recommend this home away from home and its beautiful surroundings.
After looking forward to our family's trip to Antigua for over a year, we arrived and immediately fell in love with El Suspiro. As beautiful as the photos online appear, they don't begin to show just how lovely and yes, magical you will find it to be. There were 10 of us, children and adults, and there was plenty of room for all to be together or find a place to have a little quiet time. The patio was a favorite place to relax and talk, the TV room, was ideal for our card games and the cozy living room was perfect for some alone time. I should also add that the dining room table does seat 12 allowing us to have family dinner together.
Location of the gated community was convenient for the 15-20 minute walk to the center plaza, shops and restaurants. The couple of evenings we went out, we arranged for taxis.
The staff were attentive and thoughtful. In addition to her housekeeping responsibilities, we opted to have her cook dinners every night we were there. That was a good decision because she was a talented cook and included traditional dishes which was a real treat. And I can't forget how grateful we were to her that she did our laundry. Also want to note that since we were there during Christmas-New Years, the gardner surprised us by stringing colored lights around the courtyard - a bit of Christmas fantasy.
Another thing that made the trip go smoothly was that the owner arranged for transportation from and return to the airport.
I enthusiastically recommend this property. Without a doubt, our two-week stay at El Suspiro was a special time we will never forget.
Six of us had the privilege of staying at this wonderful house for two weeks while we studied Spanish at a local school in Antigua. The house (hacienda) is about a 15-20 minutes walk to the center of town. It is located in a gated community on the eastern edge of the town that was wonderfully safe and quiet.
Every photo shown is accurate but does not convey the peacefulness and comfort that the home provides. The swimming pool/spa is an extra bonus. The house is a typical hacienda with four sides of rooms around a beautiful garden and fountain. There are flowers and very old ferns everywhere.
We also used the Casita which is a separate one bedroom home by the pool. It should be noted that the Casita has a big bedroom on the second floor and a living room and bathroom on the first floor. The bedrooms around the gardens in the main house were spacious and well appointed. There are two dining rooms and three living rooms including an outdoor space. We didn’t even use the large TV room.
The owner was terrific to work with and provided lots of help in planning our trip including helping arrange for airport pick-ups and short trips at a fraction of the cost of travel agencies. The house also comes with a very special housekeeper who made our stay even more pleasant. Not only did she keep the house spotless but she also did our laundry, bought groceries for us, and cooked two dinners as well. She was amazing and worth staying at this house just for her help.
We highly recommend this wonderful hacienda.
