Fodor's Review

This small hotel is in a secluded cove, and each of its stone-floor, stucco bungalows is shaded by avocado and papaya trees. Ask the friendly German owner to make you a tropical drink, one of his favorite pastimes. If piña coladas aren't your thing, request a massage—he is rumored to be the best masseur on the lake. The restaurant serves up great curries and other international dishes.

Excellent Place

This is a beautiful place to expend vacations, in this place you are sorrounded by nature and a TV is not necesary. Additionally the owners are pretty friendly and special. I love them.

Hotel Jinava - Like a place in paradise

I had been there in spring 2005 together with my wife. The atmosphere was dreamlike. More than 100 different plant species from all over Guatemala enchant this place into a paradise. The german owner surprised us on our wedding day with a bottle of champagne. Beside the excellent dishes and international drinks you can have a sauna and afterwards a header into the Lago Attitlan. What more can you expect?!
