Property Description

Hotel El Sol is a Japanese owned and run hotel in Panajachel. We offer comfortable and safe lodging for families or backpackers who travel to Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.
Our hotel is unique for the services we offer. As a family run hotel we do our best to inform guests about local activities and places of interest to visit.
All floors have a lounge with comfortable furniture.

Lake Atitlan is world renowned for its beauty, the three volcanoes and the misty blue water unfolds one of the world's most scenic lake views. Panajachel is one of the 12 villages that surround this magical location in the heart of the Mayan highlands. The Mayan population around the lake have their own traditions and offer healings, mayan-ceremonies, and guided tours to visitors. You can visit most villages easiest by public boats (in 15-30 min.) and enjoy a local restaurant, ziplines, horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, hiking, mountain climbing, volcano climbing, paragliding and painting or weaving classes for example.

In Panajachel you can learn Spanish in one of the many school that are available, visit the archeological museum, indigenous market, the lake-boulevard or the 'Santander', the main center for shopping, dining and nightlife. Panajachel is the central hub of Lake Atitlan. You will find all mayor Guatemalan banks here, ATM machines, supermarkets, doctors, travel agencies and restaurants. Panajachel is a good base for exploring other parts of the country because of its central location in Guatemala. We can assist you in booking trips to visit Chichicastenango, Antigua, Tikal, Monterrico, Copan (Honduras), and many other Mayan or colonial sites in and around Guatemala.

    The owner is so polite and easygoing and I loved that there were bikes available since it is a little away from the town center. It is a simple and clean hostel and I would highly recommend it!

    We ended up staying for 4 nights despite only booking 2, cause the place was so nice. It was still under construction - we can only imagine it getting better! Nice and clean, good kitchen, spacious rooms and even in the dorms you have privacy. It’s a bit outside the city (5-10 min on bike) but they had bikes for free which was a big plus! Would stay here again for sure!

    amazing hotel all in all, some issues with ants in the rooms, but what can you do. The hotel has a kitchen that you can use which is super handy! Comfortable beds and not a terribly far walk to the main public beach and dock (25 min) Hot water is also a plus! Very kind staff.

    My friend and I had a nice stay here - friendly staff, clean accommodations. They provided us with towels and even came in to make our beds (we were not expecting that). My one complaint is that it is far away from the center of things. Calle Santander is where everything happens in Pana, and it was a 20 min walk to get to/from this hostel. Although we never felt unsafe walking this far (even at night), we definitely would have preferred to stay closer to the center of things

    I was surprised when I walked in to this place that most of the maps, etc were in Japanese. Totally fine but didn't help much because I was looking for a proper map to help us around Panajachel I did like the fact that they give you free bikes for the day. It was pretty expensive for what we got. It was hard for us to find a hostel in Pana and this is why we ended up here. Owner was nice but not much info on the city itself which is why I enjoy hostels. This was more of a hotel? Place was empty
