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.
