The room was a decent size and clean. Our stay on a Saturday night was very loud with families making lots of noise all night in the courtyard. The breakfasts were good. The room is outfitted with very dated furnishings and an old tube TV. WIFI is terrible unless you are at the checkin building. There are better looking hotels...

Restaurant has a very local atmosphere filled with Mayan customs as decorations. We went there for the pancakes which were very good. Had a complete breakfast which included fried eggs, black beans, bread, the pancakes, orange juice and coffee. The service was ok, with room to improve. Definitely will be back when in Panajachel.

I stayed at this Hotel fro one night in the what they call a "double room." These double rooms are lovely; essentially two separate rooms joined by a large bathroom. The beds are enveloping - you'll sleep well. The internet reaches the rooms via wifi at a recorded speed of 2-3 Mbps which is enough for daily activities on the...

This hotel is conveniently located just a short walk from the lake and from Santander- the main shopping street in Panajachel. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms ate large and comfortable. Breakfast is included. Not much English is spoken, but the staff is patient and wonderfully pleasant. The rooms and grounds are immaculate. The pool is sparkling clean if...

Rancho Grande Inn is a great place to stay as a family. The room we stayed in, #10, was roomy and nicely decorated. The green areas were perfect for picnics and for little ones to play. The pool and play area were so nice. The breakfast was amazing. The price seemed a bit steep but I would definitely stay there...

We have stayed here four different times while doing volunteer work for Portland Oregon based Child-Aid. Each time has been wonderful with great service. Breakfasts are special with their own pancakes. One year my husband and others in our group became ill. The hotel was so helpful keeping us supplied with liquids and tender loving care. We have enjoyed our...

Another return to Pana and the Rancho Grande. As always,, the service was good and the staff gracious. Stayed 4 nights and just relaxed. Well located to everything. Seems like a safe spot. Tried several hotels in Pana,, price vs quality,,, I prefer this hotel.

The rooms/cabins are nicely designed and spacy and is really nice to be in. It only has 15 rooms, which are in a nice setting. The main issue why it only deserves three stars is the bathroom: too small (shower area is 0.75 x 0.75 meter) and the water heater is a 20+ year old gas heater which is outside...

This property has great grounds, but needs an overhaul. We had no hot water, the wi-fi was as good as useless. We were adjacent to a busy side street that was a bit noisy. Otherwise comfortable little cottage. Breakfast was good, the server was delightful; pancakes excellent.

Lovely breakfast and early morning place to eat that I happened on while in town. It will be some time before I am able to get back and would love to visit them again. I have been trying to get the recipe for their wonderful fluffy pancakes!! No one in the kitchen to ask as to how to make them....
