Our Guide told us this was the best in the area and it was "rustic".- It was old bungalow cabins again! They are in desperate need of refurbishment as they had old tiled floors and wooden panelled ceilings but they are clean. Our room had 2 double beds, a wardrobe ,sofa and an old fireplace. A shelf along side it housed an old T.V and a rack under it served for the suitcase. Through the back there was a basic kitchen and it lead out to a walled bare area. Others in our group had the same type of rooms but only one bed and no kitchen .( I think ours was classed as a double as we were a couple whilst the others were solo travellers) The shower and toilet were very compact- when you sat on the toilet yor knees were about 3 inches forom the wall in front of you. My husband always joked about having to turn sideways to do the paper work!
The restaurant is not cheap so we ate out. Breakfast was a cooked set plated one but I did manage to get it swopped for cereal at no extra charge
The grounds of the hotel are well kept and it is surprisingly quiet for being in the middle of Panajachel. There is also security at the front and a gate that is shut at night, which is good as the road it is on is extremely busy.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a bar but it is not often open and always shut by9
A computer is in the reception area and is available for use at no charge.
We befriended a little shoe shine boy who hovered outside the hotel. His name was Salvador and he was so delighted when my husband gave him $10 for a shoe polish- he did an excellent job on his shoes. Look out for him if you visit here!
