We inspected several places in San Marcos and this was best by far. Is on west edge of town, on side of the crater, grassed, built in Spanish chalet style, very clean rooms, serviced daily, felt safe all time, magnificent views from each 'chalet', swim in tepid/warm crystal water from private jetty, staff smiling and always ready to help, best...

Unsafe place, uncaring staff (if you can find someone), no front desk to ask a question (no English spoken), terrible accommodations with no hot water, broken curtains, not a stick of furniture in room to put your things, no TV, no WiFi, no coffee maker. Awful food and restaurant service. Isolated and far from town. It is a long hike...

Stunning view from top 'casitas' and very nice garden. Staff is nice but management imposes many many many silly rules which you will be required to follow by the book (eg don t bring snacks in otherwise you will be charged for them at hotel price although you already paid for them outside...). Some lost in translation misunderstandings came up...

We stayed at Jinava's two nights. Location is really beautiful and accommodation is also clean and confortable. Service staff very nice and helpful BUT they have 1.000 stupid rules which made our stay very annoying. They stressed us all the time with payments every time we had breakfast, lunch or dinner. They also denied us to accept credit card after...

While the view from the private dock is beautiful, it is absolutely not worth the horrible experience. On the second night of our stay, around 6:30pm, all of our valuable items were stolen from our room. Our room was fully locked and we went out to dinner. When we came back, all of our extra cash and credit cards had...

To get that kind of view and relaxing atmosphere you need to carry your bags a few stapes. View is great staff is helpful direct access for a swim at the lake with clean clean water. The city is close. Highly recommended.

We are couple who came to San Marcos for a few days but stayed for more than a week, because we couldn't leave the view from our room, which was the best we saw in the whole area of the lake. The staff is super nice and helpful, have to mention Nicolas and Pablo who were very friendly and helpful,...

We had an excellent time at Jinava Hotel! The views, natural surroundings, and the accommodations were beautiful and made you feel like you were in a tropical paradise. Next to our room was a calming waterfall surrounded by brightly-colored flowers. The restaurant's food was fresh and creative, offering plenty to eat. While staying at Jinava, there is no reason to...

“The top rooms are wide and have a great view of the lake. You need to be fit though to climb the steps. There are other rooms closer to the lake.”
