Hotel Atitlan is still the best place to stay near Panajachel
We stayed quite a few times at the hotel Atitlan over 34 years since their opening.
The place looks better today, the bathrooms are updated, the beautiful gardens are immaculate.
The American chef does a great job in the dining room, creative and well presented meals.
A word of warning however: we tried to book through their webpage and got an answer from a certain Travel agency.
They asked for a 10% non refundable deposit over the value of the total stay,2 nights, no problem.
After they accepted my Visa payment, they then demanded full nonrefundable payment + 10% charge for the use of a credit card.
I protested, with the result after some threatening e-mails, our reservation was cancelled, no refund offered.
Arriving at the hotel, they were gracious and honoured the reservation and the deposit.
Since it was early December we knew there would be vacancies.
I complained, the hotel is working on their website, so they can book direct in the future.
