Casa Santo Domingo, Antigua
(4.6/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
See a diverse collection of Central American art and artifacts in an atmospheric setting at Casa Santo Domingo--a museum and a five-star hotel built on the grounds of a 16th-century convent destroyed in an earthquake. Walk around the green courtyard inhabited by flamboyant parrots and see the historic ruins of a church and a crypt. Different museums on site cover everything from historical pharmaceuticals to contemporary art, with a significant collection of Central American art from several periods. The hotel's design incorporates the remains and Baroque features of the old convent. You don't have to be a hotel guest to dine in the picturesque restaurant--though do prepare for rather steep prices.

  • This hotel is beyond compare. Museum, artifacts, beautiful foliage, excellent service. The whole package. It is otherworldly and seriously a piece of heaven. 
  • The hotel has several museums that should not be missed, they have steeped in history, place inspires and has very peculiar characteristics.

  • We visit it a couple of times, we are not able to dine at his restaurant, we are left with the desire to. It is still pending to stay in this place.
