Our Ratings

Hotel Chinimaya

Attractive colonial-style hotel with a colonnaded ochre exterior, simple but cheerful guestrooms and a peaceful courtyard area.

The attractive and peaceful colonial-style Hotel Chinimaya has a lovely colonnaded exterior, a leafy courtyard and a cheerful, sunny colour scheme of oranges and yellows. The location allows easy access to the centre of Panajachel without subjecting guests to the noise and bustle of the town centre.

Accommodation is simple but inviting, with patchwork bedspreads and plenty of light streaming into the spacious rooms. The friendly staff will go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

Thus is more than just an ordinary hotel but it's aim is total sustainability.  They already provide all their own energy needs and much of the food provided is supplied by their own livestock or grown in their own grounds.  Truly fascinating.  There is a free 2 hour tour of the ranch which is highly recommended.  Only criticism is that the light bulbs are all low energy which is fine but they just need more.  The bedrooms are particularly poorly lit and the bar/ dining area felt a little dingy.  Definitely worth a visit.
