This little posada lies on a back street of Panajachel, just north of spectacular Lago Atitlan. We were driving a rental car and couldn't find the hotel, but a local taxi (tuk-tuk) driver led us right to it for seven quetzales. Our room turned out to be in a tower decorated with Mayan motifs. It overlooked the central garden, and... More

We stayed at Posada Los Encuentros for a few nights in May. The room was very spacious with 3 beds and a large bathroom. The beds were comfortable and we slept quite well in spite of roosters that crowed around 3:30 a.m. (I had ear plugs.) The location was very convenient even though it was not on a main street....

The room was quite nice with a small porch outside with a hammock and a garden area surrounding all the cabins. The pool was not exactly a pool – not quite sure what it was, an oversized bathtub with murky water but didn’t detract from the stay. Breakfast was a bit or a disappointment – some coffee, juice and toast... More

The proprietor of Los Encuentros, Richard, is an interesting man, very pleasant to interact with; and the place he has made here, having begun with the purchase of a large old house, is a perfectly secure, relatively quiet, thoroughly comfortable place to stay. The only noise came from the occasionally barking dogs, and where in Central America will you be... More

Lovely garden and well decorated guest lounge. Rooms OK and water hot. Just a little bit in need of some tlc. The room TV is just a blur for example. And WIFI doesnt work in the room. It is a bit out of town so not noisy except for the dogs in the street that sleep by day and howl... More

Pana is a tourist Mecca! While the lake is beautiful you need to wade through countless tourist shops and other nonsense to see the beauty. The nice thing about this B and B is the location if you are looking for a quiet laid back place. That, combined with the price made it a great stay. If you are expecting... More

We were welcomed very warmly by Richard and appreciated his advice and recommendations during the 3 days we spent there. Our room was cozy, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was continental style which suited us fine as it gave us a bit of a break from the usual central American fare. A great value budget stay overall. The highlight for me... More

Posada los Encuentros is a marvelous location for a relaxed, low-key getaway from the city (for expats and Guatemaltecos alike) and for foreign travelers trekking through Guatemala. The Posada has a cozy, family feel and all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. Richard Morgan's expertise of the lake area is incomparable.

A "must stay" at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. I spent three weeks and loved it every minute. Located in the Guatemalan highlands, with easy access to a "real" Mayan cultural experience and pristine natural sorroundings, Panajachel is a very friendly and colorful place to visit and enjoyed by singles and families. Their facilities are most comfortable. Richard (owner) and... More

This is a *very* pleasant posada/ bed & Breakfast ideally situated near Panajachel and the lake and the nearby mountains and gorgeous markets at Chichicastenango, just a few fun miles by colourful bus from Antigua. The place itself is slightly out of town, comprises several types of rooms (even an appartment), very quiet and comfortable, gated for added security, but... More
