Hotel El Sol, Panajachel
Great Place to Stay - a little far from everything
My husband and I spent a few nights at the Hotel El Sol. It was very nice and had a very clean bathroom and hot water in the shower, which is rare at places around Lake Atitlan. The hotel is about half an hour walk from the the lake, restaraunts and shopping district.

Very Good8.0
I did not like that the owner charged a 10% surcharge if you used either MasterCard or Visa. I have been asked to pay 2 or 3 % on Asia but never 10%. It also states that there is a washing machine to use but when I asked to use it I was told that his wife would do my laundry and I would be charged for it. That is completely different than a small charge to use the washing machine. The bed was comfortable and the room spacious and clean. It turned out to be much farther from the main tourist area than I thought it would be.
