“Great location”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

I love the location of this hotel. It was about 1/2 a block from the fork that leads into Panajachel's main road and the road that leads to restaurants and clubs. I was happy with the price since it was the first weekend of spring break, I knew everything would be a little higher. I was also happy that it came with parking space and one can go in at any time without too much trouble.It has a pool and a restaurant on site, though there are specific restaurant hours. What I didn't like was the fact that the bathroom was not up to par- the shower sprayed all over and there was no carpet or anything to absorb the water. By the end of our trip we rather use the public bathrooms on the grounds because ours had become inundated with water. I thought about coming back to this hotel at the end of my spring break trip, but decided to look elsewhere.

Reviewed 23 November 2008

The review in the Lonely Planet guide is very accurate - this hotel comprises of a strip motel part on the main street, but there are also rooms in the back which all open out onto a beautiful, peaceful garden complete with swingset for the kids. There is also a swimming pool and restaurant, which served up very good home cooking for our group. The rooms are nothing special and have that tired look common to this part of the world, but provided a basic and comfortable night for us. The location is very handy to the main drag that has all of the touristy vendors and is a short 10 min walk to the lake. Be sure to ask what time they turn the hot water on so that you do not find yourself in the shower with ice cold water!
