Fodor's Review

This elegant hotel was built around the ruins of the ancient Monasterio Santo Domingo, taking advantage of its long passageways and snug little courtyards. Dark carved-wood furniture, yellow stucco walls, and iron sconces preserve the monastic atmosphere, but luxurious amenities abound. Unfortunately, the food at the restaurant is considerably less inspiring than the rest of the package. The hotel serves as a tourist attraction in its own right—do visit its museums and

grounds—but for guests here, the outside visitors occasionally translate into a lack of intimacy.

A truly unique hotel

If you have any interest in historic renovation and unusual hotels, the Santo Domingo is an experience not to be is in fact a major tourist desination in its own right. My partner and I found it a great, not over-the-top, place to spend New Years. They could be more responsive on the service side but our stay in Antigua was very rewarding thanks in no small measure to this beautiful hotel.

Agree with the raves. Found reception desk a little stiff. Reviews under rate the restaurant. The food was superb, artfully presented and the atmosphere divine. Service was great and they even brought a artsy bucket of coals to warm us since it was a little chilly. Breakfast, a la carte, was great too. And even though every night there are dozens of candles, when theres a party or a wedding on the grounds there are thousands, everywhere, very,

very magical. Don't miss it.

Lovely but Large

Absolutely stunning hotel but somewhat lacking in intimacy or a personal touch. Unless you want large hotel amenities (pool, business center, etc), I would go to Meson Panza Verde or Posada Del Angel instead.

Wonderful Atmoshere

We were hoping to get a room at the hotel but it was a spur of the moment to go there so we weren't able to get a room. We were able to walk around the grounds and I fell in love with the aura and atmosphere of the place.

Modern Hotel in a Beautiful Setting

Check-in is almost a religious experience, considering that the front desk is an altar! This hotel is simply exquisite, very modern. Even if you don't stay here, you must visit its museums and walk the grounds at dusk as they light the candles through the hallways. You will have to pay a premium price for this hotel. Ask for off-season prices or other discounts, if possible. Be sure to ask if the price includes ALL taxes, which can be 25% more.

Why stay here? ATMOSPHERE, ATMOSPHERE, ATMOSPHERE!! (Note: I never ate here since I heard that the restaurant is bad.)
