“Quiet hotel in heart of Panajachel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I stayed at Hotel Dos Mundos for 3 nights. I liked this hotel a lot. Clean, quiet, comfortable. The breakfast is very good. I also like La Lanterna, their Italian restaurant on site. I had some delicious house-made pasta and good wine. Staff is very friendly and professional although there is not a lot of English. They understand English but probably prefer not to speak it. Beautiful pool but it was cool when I was there so no swimming for me!

Nice hotel for the price, simple but ample accomodations. The grounds are beautiful, the pool delightful. The food at the restaurant was "adequate" and it was nice being able to eat there after a long trip from Antigua on a van. The only negative thing to say about this hotel, is that the "day" staff spoke no English, it was difficult communicating, however they were pleasant. I had a negative experience with a young man who was selling his wares outside of the hotel lobby. we stayed three nights and he was there all the time, very aggressive and ended up using profanity when I had just "had enough". BIG PROBLEM IN PANAJACHEL.

This was a nice place to be based for one night while visiting Lake Atitlan and Chichicastenango. The room was plenty big enough, the shower was lovely. The pool looked inviting (although it was reportedly quite cold). The food at the restaurant was yum (particularly dinner, breakfast was a little more ordinary; but still good). The wifi seemed plenty strong enough to me.

Tucked away off the main road. Beautiful landscape. The rooms were clean and well kept. Bathrooms were a but small. The service was good. Ate at the cafe onsite. The food was ok, not fabulous. Would stay here again if in the area.

Quiet and peacefule considering it's location on the main road to the lake. Rooms good size and water reasonably hot. Free wifi that was a little hit and miss. Breakfast ok. Generally a decent mid priced hotel I would stay at again.

Paid $50USD for one night. Strange front desk where the guy said it's $50USD cash or $70USD for card....he then said we didn't need a receipt after paying.

Anyway other than that its a really nice place. Very clean with nice gardens and quite tranquil for such a central location. And the pool is an added bonus, its good with a lovely lay out with deck chairs all around the pool. Would recommend.

Overall we had a nice stay at this hotel. Our kids lkied the pool, although it was chilly. The food in the restaurant was OK, but there really is no lunch menu unless you want a full italian meal. The breakfast was great. One tip I would suggest is to not have the hotel arrange your trip around the lake, you will pay double and they will contact the same vendors that are standing near the lake.
