If you are on a budget but would like to be near restaurants and still have a view, Hotel Playa Linda may be your answer. There are fancier hotels by far in the same area. However, I was traveling on a budget only requiring a clean room with hot water in the shower and a decent mattress on the bed.... More

The owner was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the view was good (in front), the pool was small but clean, there was good coffee in the morning and we had a fireplace and fire in the room at night which was wonderful.The hallway had shoddy floor & carpeting..like it had seen better days but the...

We stayed one night at this very clean and quiet hotel. They have a restaurant on site and we had a typical Guatemalan breakfast while we watched the vendors set up their stalls for the day. It was a very peaceful and safe feeling place to stay.

We spent 5 nights and the Playa Linda and loved it. It's an older hotel but has a lot of charm and great location. It's a bit removed from the chaos of Calle Santander (the main street in Panajachel), but still close enough to walk there (or take a tuk-tuk). The hotel has a small pool and a lush, beautiful...

We stayed in 2 different rooms, 3 and 2. Both had balconies overlooking the lake, fire places, shower only bathroom, drinking water supplied and cable TV with many US channels. Room 2 had a very comfortable double bed. The place could have been cleaner. It was located about 10 minutes walk from the town. Some members of staff spoke English.

Right on the lake and this is a wonderful location, away from the street crammed with hotels and shopping stalls. The flowers and birds in the garden are lovely. The staff helped me with my questions, not a word of English, but not a warm or friendly response at all. The rooms were nice and clean and nice hot showers... More

The other reviews gave an accurate picture. It is an older hotel and shows the wear but is clean, friendly and perfectly located. We loved waking up to the sounds of the birds in the garden and the amazing lake and volcanoes views. We had wonderful soft sheets and a comfortable bed. There is even a small pool for hot... More

We had a great experience. The staff was very accommodating even with limited English. When we asked where the laundry mat was, they told us but then offered to do our clothes for a reasonable price. This gave us an extra hour to go play. There is some noise from neighboring rooms. But overall it was peaceful. It is very... More
