Hot water available 24 hours a day, lovely courtyard, clean and comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff - what more could
You ask for! Close to the lake but lovely and quiet. Thank you. Trip adviser requires me to say more but I think that says it all

I only had a two night stay as part of a tour, but absolutely loved my stay at Hotel Utz Jay, In Panachel near Lake Atitlan.. I had a very large upper story of a wooden cabin set in the grounds of a very pretty garden. It was charming to sit on 'my' balcony to relax and listen to all the birdsong. The breakfast was very good, and the hotel was close to all amenities - the lake, the town shops, restaurants and tour agencies, yet in a quiet street. There was WiFi and a helpful staff. I would have been more than happy to stay longer

Room Tip: Upstairs in a cabin -( not suitable for the disabled)

The place is very comfortable, quiet, has a beautiful garden with lots of options to sit and enjoy a drink. They provide enough information, organize the usual tours for you, but well and reliable. It is a haven in the otherwise commercial and gray Panajachel.

I have stayed in the Hotel Utz Jay during my trips to Atitlan. It has always been a comfortable stay. The people who owrk there are very nice and accommodating. The breakfast is served on premise in a nice patio....it's a good breakfast, coffee right outside your room....yes there is a charge, it's worth it. The also have a sauna you can reserve, very pleasurable, nice stay always.

Room Tip: I can only say, I never had a room that wasnt comfortable at Utz Jay.

We thought breakfast was included so we paid for a double, but we sleep in one bed and did not get any breakfast. So we felt cheated and fooled.

Hot water was in the reverse so it took us some time to figure it out.

Room (#10) was great with private bathroom. Nice terrace with no view . Internet and cable TV was the BEST.

We did not like the toilet paper dispenser. It was very inconvenient.

We stayed here during our visit to Lake Atitlan. A great value with breakfast included. Several bungalow style rooms spread out on the property amongst the garden. Wi-Fi, & cable TV included. Just a block off the main street and short walk to the docks. A great location and a great price. Plenty of HOT water for showers, they provide a pitcher of drinking water in your room. Would recommended this place to any one stayin overnight in Panajachel.

Had a very nice time at this hotel. It is located off of the main drag in town. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The owner has 2 German Shepherd dogs that are very friendly and play well with children. Breakfast was included with the room and was very good.

Room Tip: Ooops. No pool to review and couldn't remove it from rating. The rooms at the back of the prop...
