We all stayed at La Posada Los Encuentros in Panajachel for several days while visiting Antigua, Lake Atitlan and Chichicastenango. The rooms were comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and we felt quite safe. The owner, Mr. Richard Morgan, was our guide for several of the excursions and was very knowledgeable.

I organized with the owner a tour for 12 people of the Lake Atitlan and the neighboring villages. The hospitality was wonderful with the entire staff supporting us in every way possible. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were greeted every morning with a nice continental breakfast and plenty of conversation with Richard the owner. The Posada is a... More

Three friends and I stayed here for three nights. We had a lovely room on the ground floor with an adjoining bathroom just outside. Room was clean and full of everything we needed including a water cooler of filtered water. The attraction of the place is that it's location is a 5/10 minute walk from the centre of pana so...

It was my first time visiting Guatemala and I went with friends. The posada is wonderful, the best you could get in Panajachel. It's just a short walk from the center of town, and away from all the noise and people. The rooms are like personal apartments, with a bathroom and even a fully equipped kitchen in the studio we...

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner of the hotel. He answered all our questions and gave us a tour of the premises, which is beautifully decorated with tons Guatemalan/Mayan art. He was very informative and new a plethora about Lake Atitlan and the surrounding towns. My favorite time was breakfast because 1.) free toast/coffee/juice/cereal AND 2.) we ate... More

We stayed 2 nights in a very large family room. The room was basically a small apartment with separate kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. We loved the place. However, if you want to stay in the center of the action, this is a place to avoid. If you want to have a relaxed stay in a quiet place, then this could... More

We chose this hotel for an anniversary weekend away. Looked good, highly rated in the reviews - 4.5 stars. I believe aside from our experience, it is overrated. they are located down a small alleyway and because I have a full size pickup truck, it was the first obstacle. We managed to squeeze into one of their two garage parking... More

The referenced unit is on the 2d floor & generally not bothered by mosquitos. We have room repellent devices available as well as area fans if any discomfort is brought to our attention. There was no complaint on this matter after the 1st day of stay, so these paliatives were not offered. It's unfortunate to learn of such things only... More

i have traveled throughout Guatemala for the last ten years. This was by far the absolute worst of any place I have ever stayed. The tip of the iceberg; no water, no reading light and no viewable television.....the bathroom is outside, and the sink is also, which was never mentioned by the way.....so you are supposed to brush your teeth...

We understand the guest had considerable difficulties with transportation and baggage before arriving in Panajachel and at our lodge. We realize that such things sometimes color perspectives. It is unfortunate that when she did arrive, at the end of the day, and was initially escorted to her unit by the receptionist, she expressed no dissatisfaction with the layout. If she... More

Loved my stay, the owners were very lovely! They were very welcoming, the room we chose was like a little flat and we literally had everything in there: little stove, toaster, sink, fridge we even got a few tea bags. Oh and the food at breakfast was delicious! Definitely recomend the place!
