Great location in the main road in town and only a block from the local craft markets. Secure parking, meals available, pretty garden area and helpful staff. It is an economically priced hotel and great for families. The mattresses tend to be too form for my preference but not bad.

This is a very basic hotel. Don't expect many ammenities. Don't expect a good service, also. The pool water was filled with mud. Awful. They haven't a honest cancellation policy. I had to paid for three rooms that we didn't use althought I had called a week before and tell them we won't use them. The person that attended us... More

The Grand Hotel is like an oasis to a desert wanderer. As many Latino towns, Panajachel is noisy and bustling all day and night long, but the Grand rooms are located inside a secluded park-like setting and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is conveniently located near Lake Atitlan and the markets. The rooms are sparsely... More

This is a great hotel, it's off of the main touristy shopping street in Panajachel, so you don't have to deal with people who stay out too late, but it is a 2-3 minute walk to be in the heart of the shopping area. It is a beautiful hotel with lovely landscaping, and multiple beds (my room had two double... More

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... More

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... More

“Ask for one of the rooms in the back, they're more private and have a different view. You'll have to walk a little farther but you get to walk through the gardens with lots of butterflies.”
