“Loved it!!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2008

We loved our stay at this hotel!!! Great location ~ Great staff. great restaurant!
We had such a neat experience with the staff at the restaurant. Both dinner and breakfast there, the staff was so attentive and sweet. We just loved them. They shared a lot with us and we were really touched.
It is a great hotel right on the lake with a beautiful view and a very nice pool and water slide.
We are in our 30's but had to try the waterslide out :) It was great and very refreshing!
We loved Lake Atitlan and the towns across the lake as well. What an amazing little place~
I highly recommend this hotel. I wish we would have had more time here.

Overpriced for Guatemala, but cheap on a more global perspective. Get a Lakeside room; spectacular views and better beds. (Have been there twice). This hotel is all plusses and minuses:
PLUSSES:
Best location in Pana, great views, nice room, ambience (marimbas, rooftop retaurant, etc.), great little museum, nice bar service, friendly restaurant staff, GREAT breakfast and views.
OKs--Restaurant is great breakfast, good lunch, OK dinner. Fish not real fresh, tenderloin a little tough, but rest was fine.
Minusses--Usual Guate stuff--no washcloths or facial tissue, terrible room lighting, minimal reception area amenities and service.

  • Liked — Best location in Pana and best views (important in Pana)
  • Disliked — Missing basics...internet, kleenex, bathroom amenities, hair dryer, iron, etc.

probably the most expensive hotel but still reasonable compared to uk prices. Grounds, rooms and facilities 1st class.
Staff the best in Guatemala

The hotel is nice, the rooms are well decorated, but the beds were substandard. The hotel is quite expensive for Guatemala. You can easily stay at a different hotel that's practically as good for half the price.

The staff were extremely helpful. Internet is expensive, use one on the main road instead.

Excellent modern, large rooms. No lobby/sitting room or garden.
Service was above average and pleasant. Great location for
walking to all needed services. On main noisy Santander Street.

We stayed in the Hotel Posada de Don Rodrigo Panajachel for 2 nights with a 16 person tour group.

The room, the food, the location and particularly the staff were all wonderful. As said before on previous reviews, the lake views and the manicured grounds make this a special hotel.

I cannot say enough good things about the staff. We would watch the sunset and enjoy some wine on the top deck each evening. We were always well taken care of. Each morning at breakfast (which had a great selection)the service was also great. Since I speak some Spanish, I enjoyed getting to know the staff. At the end of our stay here, some staff members looked for me to say goodbye. It was special.

I would hightly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Posada three nights last January 2006. We liked it so much we booked an extra night. We stayed in one of the doubles in the new section w/ a view of the lake. Great Guatemalan ambiance. Good food. Good location. Very nice restaurant - part of it outdoors on the roof. Try it for breakfast or an evening sunset. Spectacular. Often they will include breakfast w/ the room fee - a very nice perk. Staff more than helpful and friendly. Even helped us book a hotel in Antigua on our way home (not theirs) and got us a big discount. I'm guessing this is the best deal in Pan. Will stay there again.

  • Liked — Location, cleanliness, ethnic ambiance, gardens, lake.
  • Disliked — Liked it all.
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask for a room in the new part w/ a lake view.
