We had a great long weekend in panajachel staying at Posada Los Encuentros. It is located just a short walk from the main street but far enough that you are not bothered by the loud noise of its night life. There is a nice hot tub with natural hot water and a nice garden well kept and with labels on... More

Freezedry, Manager at Posada Los Encuentros, responded to this review

These guests were, like most, a great pleasure to accomodate.Our place is clearly best suited for guests who book with us because of our special features; our hotsoak tub, fitness center, medicinal plant garden, and direct access the Mayan culture. We offer a free "Continental breakfast," which is, in itself, quite healthy with fruit juice, milk,coffee, a variety of teas,... More

The location is a little far from the Panajachel's downtown, but that's not completely bad. The worst is the deception because we booked a room with sight to the lake and we could only saw de roofs around us. The lingerie has not a good quality but they ask for care with it when its state is all stained. The... More

The posada is a 25-minute walk from the lake and the only good view of the lake is from our terrace, which offers a great view. It has never been our intention to mislead anyone on views. Most of our rooms face onto a beautiful internal garden and offer that view.This reservation was made thru a third party booker on... More

We stayed 8 nights in the posada. The owner Richard Morgan has created a wonderful garden and surrounding , is very helpful , has excellent knowledge and informations about the lake Atitlan and the mayan culture. The posada is located a little bit outside the town centre which can be reached by an easy 10-min-walk or with a tuc-tuc. We... More

We all stayed at La Posada Los Encuentros in Panajachel for several days while visiting Antigua, Lake Atitlan and Chichicastenango. The rooms were comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and we felt quite safe. The owner, Mr. Richard Morgan, was our guide for several of the excursions and was very knowledgeable.

I organized with the owner a tour for 12 people of the Lake Atitlan and the neighboring villages. The hospitality was wonderful with the entire staff supporting us in every way possible. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were greeted every morning with a nice continental breakfast and plenty of conversation with Richard the owner. The Posada is a... More

Three friends and I stayed here for three nights. We had a lovely room on the ground floor with an adjoining bathroom just outside. Room was clean and full of everything we needed including a water cooler of filtered water. The attraction of the place is that it's location is a 5/10 minute walk from the centre of pana so...

It was my first time visiting Guatemala and I went with friends. The posada is wonderful, the best you could get in Panajachel. It's just a short walk from the center of town, and away from all the noise and people. The rooms are like personal apartments, with a bathroom and even a fully equipped kitchen in the studio we...

He was very informative and new a plethora about Lake Atitlan and the surrounding towns. My favorite time was breakfast because 1.) free toast/coffee/juice/cereal AND 2.) we ate... More

We stayed 2 nights in a very large family room. The room was basically a small apartment with separate kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. We loved the place. However, if you want to stay in the center of the action, this is a place to avoid. If you want to have a relaxed stay in a quiet place, then this could... More

We chose this hotel for an anniversary weekend away. Looked good, highly rated in the reviews - 4.5 stars. I believe aside from our experience, it is overrated. they are located down a small alleyway and because I have a full size pickup truck, it was the first obstacle. We managed to squeeze into one of their two garage parking... More

The referenced unit is on the 2d floor & generally not bothered by mosquitos. We have room repellent devices available as well as area fans if any discomfort is brought to our attention. There was no complaint on this matter after the 1st day of stay, so these paliatives were not offered. It's unfortunate to learn of such things only... More
