This large, well placed hotel suited our trip to Panajachel just fine. My daughter and I spent two nights here. Our room was clean and quiet, the breakfast provided a lovely view of the lake, and we had a fairly successful dinner in the dining room one evening also. It's located right next to the lake for a great view... More

This hotel has a lot to recommend it but we had a difficult time there with severe food poisoning for one child and the rest of us with milder symptoms, so that has rather influenced this review. Its location is great - right by the lake, and at the corner of the main tourist street - if you want to... More

We had two rooms, double queens, great showers, clean, nice air conditioning and beautiful views! We will be returning! Internet was available though spotty in room. The restaurant provided a better location for connecting.

Lake Atitlan is a beautiful area, the hotel's location is good with a nice view. At the same time the hotel is very basic but overpriced. $150 per night for a double room including breakfast. Our room was on the ground level, very dark, the windows have no screens let alone bars! The bathroom dated and not very clean. We... More

The location is great and the views are pretty, but for $100 a night it is way overpriced. There are ants all over the bathroom counter and no wifi in the rooms. I would certainly stay elsewhere. You can find the same quality for much cheaper.

I stayed here for several nights a few weeks ago on a Road Scholar trip. Staff, food, location, public areas excellent. Room...in need of a paint job! Walls were filthy. Soot from fireplace? This hotel is the sad step brother to the one in Antigua. The room had to be closed up because of privacy...no screens or shutters on window.... More

Our second time around, and several months later, on a business trip to Lake Atitlan, we reserved a "double" room at Hotel Posada de Don Rodrigo. Coincidentally (?) we were assigned the same room as before -- yes, Room 108. It is situated in the garden area, furnished with two beds --- one twin and one double -- same as... More
