Good place to stay with friendly staff. Had two beds and own bathroom. A bit hard to find and get into locked gate first time there, but good location. Jen is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and came with advice on where to go.

I had a wonderful stay at Jenna's B&B near Lake Atitlan. Jenna was a wonderful hostess, provided us with all of the appropriate information needed to make our stay a good one, and provided a wonderful breakfast each day. She is a great person to get to know. Thanks you for everything Jenna! Phil

We used Jenna's as a one night layover on our way from Santiago to Xela. The BnB is a very short walk from the dock through the very touristy slew of stalls and hawkers. It is a nice set of buildings tucked a bit off the street and comprised of 7 rooms. But as others have said - Jenna makes... More
