“Very nice hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We stayed in Posada de Don Rodrigo as part of our honeymoon and we really enjoyed our stay.

The hotel is based at the lake end of the main shopping and eating street in Panajachel. This makes it very easy to go for a stroll from the hotel to see the local street traders and eat some local cuisine.

The view from our room was lovely. We woke up every morning with a view of the 2 main mountains over looking the lake and with the boats of the local fishermen and taxis buzzing up and down the lake.

The rooms were big, well furnished and had enough english television channels to keep us entertained on one of our planned chill out evenings.

Room Tip: One issue we did have with our room , lake view room, was that the patio area was directly above our...

We were with a big group. Some rooms did not always have hot water, but I always did in two different stays there. Wifi works in or near restaurant, so we interfaced alot with the restaurant staff. They were amazing and have excellent service.

We arrived here quite early and although our room wasn't ready they kept our bags safe for us while we went and had lunch.
We booked two lakeview rooms which were very large and had a great view of the lake. The pool was enjoyable for us, especially the waterslide since I was traveling with my son. Close to shopping and places to eat. We also enjoyed the small museum.

Room Tip: The lake views are really great and worth the extra money

Our room led to a garden overlooking Lake Atitlan. It was a beautiful view. The staff were friendly and the restaurant was good. We had dinner and breakfast there as we were exhausted when we got to the hotel. We only stayed in this hotel for one night but as beautiful as the hotel was, I was glad to go because the beds were not the most comfortable.

Thank you for you review!
We are very sorry to hear that the beds were not comfortable. It is very hard to have beds to the expectations of each of our clients since some prefer softer and some harder beds. However we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and service of our restaurant.
We thank you once again for taking the time to write this review, we hope to serve you in the near future!

The Hotel is situated on the Bank of Lake Attitlan, many rooms as ours have view to the lake and the volcanoes on the other side of the lake. We took many nice pictures without moving from our room.Our room was spacious with large beds, that's what we ask for every room we reserve, so we were completely satisified. Some of the rooms were sitiated on the lower level,where we stayed, having balconies leading to a grass yard or on the upper level on the courtyard.It has a big restaurant with nice view and a place where staff preformed local dances.Many choices for breakfast and dinner,In the roofed corridors leading from the reception to the main hotel there are hamacs where you can lie down to read or have a siesta.

Great hotel, service, location, rooms, staff. This place was amazing and highly recommended. The entire experience in Guatemala was exceptional. We have always been treated like family. In the posada it was no different. Everyone was there to make our stay pleasant. The food was great and the hotels also provided kids entertainment which was great after the day's activities
