The Grand Hotel is like an oasis to a desert wanderer. As many Latino towns, Panajachel is noisy and bustling all day and night long, but the Grand rooms are located inside a secluded park-like setting and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is conveniently located near Lake Atitlan and the markets. The rooms are sparsely... More

We've stayed in this place at the lake and enjoyed it a lot. The Hotel has a great backyard and offers a great view of the mountains around.. We had a really nice room with two double beds and shelves and a cupboards.. besides we had a comfy armchair and a TV. A balcony-like room seperated the bedroom from the... More

I've stayed at this hotel three different times and it really is fine. This last time I was in one of the suites (meaning it has 4 beds) and it was fine. There was no hot water for the shower in the morning but my friends in another room (not a suite) had hot hot water (I have had hot... More

This is a great hotel, it's off of the main touristy shopping street in Panajachel, so you don't have to deal with people who stay out too late, but it is a 2-3 minute walk to be in the heart of the shopping area. It is a beautiful hotel with lovely landscaping, and multiple beds (my room had two double... More

I love the location of this hotel. It was about 1/2 a block from the fork that leads into Panajachel's main road and the road that leads to restaurants and clubs. I was happy with the price since it was the first weekend of spring break, I knew everything would be a little higher. I was also happy that it... More

The review in the Lonely Planet guide is very accurate - this hotel comprises of a strip motel part on the main street, but there are also rooms in the back which all open out onto a beautiful, peaceful garden complete with swingset for the kids. There is also a swimming pool and restaurant, which served up very good home... More
