We were on a mission trip and the Hotel California facility and staff were both amazing. Accommodations were perfect. Staff were helpful and so very kind. I always felt safe. They offer ear plugs for the nightlife city sounds. I slept so well when I was there!

Wonderful hotel and staff. We were here for a mission trip and could not have asked for a better experience. Staff is outstanding, both friendly and attentive to your needs. Clean and sizable rooms with hot showers. Recommend ear plugs for the night as it’s right in the heart of the lively Panajachel. So much to do within walking or Tuk-tuk distance.

The Hotel California is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is friendly, attentive, and plenty of English speaking employees to help you get round town if you need it. The cafe has great food and drinks and even better live music some nights. I've stayed at Hotel California two years in a row and can't wait to return! See you soon!!!! Hasta pronto, gracias
