I stayed a couple of nights at the Hotel Utz Jay while visiting Pana and a couple of the other towns on Lake Atitlan. The hotel is a very good value. I paid 225Q a night, and I believe the price is even better if you agree to stay 3 or more nights. The hotel is on a quiet street, but only a couple of minutes by foot from the town's main road. It made it very easy to get a good night's rest. The room was exceptionally clean and even had a little patio area to sit out on and enjoy the weather. There was a television with plenty of tv stations from the states (HBO, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc) which was nice to watch when I was laying in bed at night. There was an A/C and fan to get some air flow in the room. The employees at the front desk were helpful and friendly as well. My only complaint would be the lack of water pressure in the shower. There were times when it slowed down to a drip, but that happens in Guatemala! They did serve breakfast, but I never ate at the hotel. Overall, I was very pleased and will happily stay here again. It's a solid choice for Pana and a really good deal!
