“Hands down the BEST rental in Antigua”
Reviewed 11 October 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I usually expect a vacation rental to look worst than the pictures. This was the rare gem that is much better than it looks online. The house was a stylish combination of modern and colonial architecture, it was very spacious, and the location was absolutely perfect. Located almost exactly at the Arco de Santa Catalina you will be able to navigate the city on foot if you'd like, but there are always plenty of tuk tuks and cabs nearby. The house has everything you will need for preparing meals, plus the onsite management team, led by Giancarlo, were always right there to help. Despite the active night life all around the unit, it is extremely peaceful and quiet inside. The restaurant that shares a courtyard with the apartment was a special treat for us, because we could leave our kids at home and go out on mom/dad dates with no fear of anyone going in or out without us noticing. Overall, between the excellent management and the ideal accommodations, I have to say this is one of the best vacation rentals I've ever found.

Normalmente me esperaba un alquiler de vacaciones para ver peor que las fotos. Esta fue la joya rara que es mucho mejor de lo que parece en el internet. La casa era una elegante combinación de arquitectura moderna y colonial, era muy espaciosa, y la ubicación era absolutamente perfecto. Situado casi exactamente en el Arco de Santa Catalina podrá navegar por la ciudad a pie si lo desea, pero siempre hay un montón de tuk tuks y taxis cerca. La casa tiene todo lo necesario para preparar comidas, además del equipo de gestión del hotel, dirigido por Giancarlo, siempre estaban allí para ayudar. A pesar de la vida nocturna activa en todo el conjunto, es extremadamente tranquilo y silencioso dentro. El restaurante que comparte un patio con el apartamento era un regalo especial para nosotros, porque podíamos dejar a nuestros hijos en casa y salir a las citas de mamá / papá sin miedo de entrar o salir sin que nos dimos cuenta. En general, entre la excelente gestión y el alojamiento ideal, tengo que decir que es uno de los mejores alquileres de vacaciones que he encontrado.

Fantastic find. Centrally located - updated apartment - secure. Quite loud on Weekends - but, we were warned ahead of time from other reviews. They provided earplugs.

“Beauty in the Heart of Antigua”

Giancarlo and his team are AMAZING! They are so attentive to detail at all three of their rentals. My wife, my son, and I have stayed in all three apartments. All three apartments are very clean and are beautify decorated. The apartments are centrally located and everything is just a short walk away. We always felt very safe and looked after. If you are going to stay in Antigua definitely look into staying here!

“A surprisingly beautiful place...”

We stayed at the Turquoise apartment the week between Christmas and New Year's. The apartment is well designed, beautifully decorated, and completely equipped. It is set off of a very private courtyard back some distance from the street, affording a great amount of privacy. The views from the upper terrace of the mountains and rooftops is quite stunning. We found the staff, led by Giancarlo, to be very helpful and the tried immediately to resolve any issues. The Calle del Arco is the center of activity and nightlife in Antigua, so expect some music from nearby venues on the weekend and holidays. It seems to be quiet at night away from those times. We hope to stay at the Plaza del Arco on our next visit to Antigua.

“The Best Kept Secret in Antigua!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My 17 year old son and I just spent 10 glorious days in Antigua, Guatemala as residents of the Turquesa apartment - one of the 3 exceptional apartments offered by Plaza del Arco. We were the first guests to experience Plaza del Arco, so we got to know our apartment - and the others, quite well. Plaza del Arco apartments are truly Antigua's best kept secret!

Each of the three apartments is pristine, combining elegant, modern design with classic Spanish Colonial art and architecture. Each apartment is 2 stories, with private outdoor terraces and intimate, interior patios . . . . glorious natural light, tremendous design sensitivity, absolutely incredible - even better than the photographs on the website.

With respect to the location, Calle del Arco, (also known as 5 Avenida Norte) is the most well-known and most photographed street in Antigua. This is due to the lovely 17th century arch spanning the street, which is just a stone's through way from the Plaza del Arco apartments. Guests access Plaza del Arco from the street, through a doorway leading to a large shared courtyard. Along the perimeter of the courtyard are Los Tres Tiempos restaurant (delicious), an excellent travel agency, Macaw Tours, and several other spaces, including an artisanal ice cream shop, due to open in a few weeks. After crossing the shared courtyard, Plaza del Arco guests access a private door - with a security code. Guests are greeted by an historic, bubbling fountain surrounded by greenery and flowers. This charming interior courtyard is shared by the entry doors accessing all 3 apartments and the small office space of the general manager, Giancarlo.

With respect to the staff, Giancarlo was very attentive to our needs and a pleasure to work with. Johanna and Francisco, who meticulouisly cared for the apartments and the property, were also gracious and kind. We loved greeting the evening security guard, Roberto, each night . My son and I would return from one of the dozens of nearby restaurants, ring the bell, and Roberto would be there to unlock the exterior door and let us in.

This was my 3rd trip to Antigua and I will absolutely plan to stay in the Turquesa apartment again next year. I have rented apartments before in international cities and this was my most joy-filled experience. If you are very independent, want to feel as if you are a local - and stay in an apartment where you will make memories of a life time - then this is the place for you.

Sending all my thanks to the staff and the owners of Plaza del Arco Apartments. Best wishes to you and your future guests!

Gratefully,
