Meson de Maria is a cosy property in Antigua evoking the colonial era with antiques and pretty foliage-filled courtyards.  

There are many pretty Spanish colonial-style hotels in Antigua, and this is one of the most evocative. Situated in a refurbished residence from the colonial era, it has cosy, exquisitely decorated guest-rooms of varying size, set around little patios with terraces and balconies dripping with tropical vegetation.  Antiques are dotted round the property which also features exposed brickwork, wicker chairs and open fires which come together in a kind of upmarket rustic chic.

There’s a roof terrace on which to relax and enjoy the sun and views over the city from a lounger, massage and babysitting services on request and a restaurant opposite owned by the hotel . Part of its appeal is its location close to the city’s iconic arch, close to the main square and the principal attractions.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: Visiting some of the villages around Antigua and meeting several local people either in their homes or at their place of work.

    AW, London
  • The trip far exceeded any expectation we had, we were constantly saying "Oh my God, how fantastic is this is"

    DA, Waterloo
  • Highlight: It is difficult to pick one thing. We loved the feel of Antigua and will consider going back there to spend more time. We also loved travelling through the Guatemalan highlands, visiting the local markets, walking through the colourful graveyards with locals performing ancient rituals and generally experiencing a sense of what life is like for a modern day Mayan. On one particular day, when visiting the markets at Almolonga and Zunil, we witnessed an eruption of Volcan Santaguito.

    DE, Wilmslow
  • So many.  Probably Guatemala.  It is so beautiful with volcanoes, Lake Atitlan and beautiful flowers.  We also loved the vibrancy of Mexico City and the beautiful beach at Hotel Esencia.

    RCB, Bury St Edmonds
  • Most memorable experience: "Tikal stands out as does the diversity of the bird life."

    LF, Bristol
  • Tikal jungle setting had the ultimate combination of wildlife, environment, landscape and ruins.

    SW, Telford
