I stayed with my wife and a group at Hotel Dos Mundos in May 2014. It is in a great location in the middle of Pana. It is set off from the street so you cannot hear the street noises. The rooms are bungalow style and pretty basic. The beds are pretty hard and not very comfortable. There is intermittent... More

Rooms are set back from the entrance on the main road in nice grounds so feels like a little oasis in a busy town. We stayed in the low rise terrace of rooms at the back which were agood size and overlooked the small pool (more like a childs pool than a swimming pool but nice place to sit out... More

Nice hotel for Central America. Good value. Rooms are back away from the street so are quiet. Best shower I had on all the trip. Flat screen TV but you aren't there to watch TV anyway. Breakfast was nice. Requested eggs over easy and they delivered...few places in Guatemala can do that.

It's in a very central location but as many mentioned even though you can't hear the street you can hear all your neighbors. Just hope they go to bed before you. The bed and pillows have a strange yellow color with some kind of spots, the bathroom i think should smell better if it's really cleaned. We stayed in room... More

I'm surprised to read that others have not enjoyed this hotel. My son and I and the several other families with whom we traveled loved it! It is centrally located, as others have said. The pool area was perfect for our kids. The restaurant served a delicious traditionally Guatemalan breakfast. Our rooms were spacious and clean. The front desk kindly... More

Pleasant to find a reasonably modern hotel with large rooms ( double and single bed). No hot water initially but hotel staff addressed quickly. Good location close to lake and plenty of food places and markets nearby. Even had flat panel TV which is the first I'd struck in Guatemala! Not sure about price as travelling with a tour group....

I can't believe anybody would give this place 5 stars. The pool, landscaping, and restaurant are fine, and it is centrally located in Panajachel, but the rooms are a mess from beginning to end: - You can literally hear everything outside and next door. Paper thin walls. - Bathroom is a disgusting joke: shower head caked in god knows what,... More

Grounds are very nice here. But so much else is wrong. No one at front desk speaks English, so trying to get issues addressed was very difficult with my poor Spanish. Biggest issue is that walls are PAPER THIN. You can hear everything in adjacent rooms. Everything. Curtains don't completely close, so difficult to seal out light. 'Hot' water is... More

Compared to the USA the room would be a Motel 6 accommodation. It is located in the center of town. Excellent location. The grounds and pool are excellent. The use of palm trees in the landscaping is very special. The extra water bottle outside the rooms is a very good idea. The breakfasts is complementary. If you like eggs and... More

Our group of 19 was well served and promptly. Good food. Restaurant decorated in tropical jungle style we experienced first in Chiapas, much appreciated. Did not stay at this hotel, but pool area looked great.
