You don't need to be rich to feel like royalty. I could not have higher praise for this establishment. The people make the experience. The staff and owner could not have been kinder people. We were horrible at Spanish and they were so accommodating and managed to communicate very well. The facilities were beautifully kept and the gardens were GORGEOUS....

Hotel Toliman was easily the best part of my trip to Guatemala. The grounds are stunningly gorgeous and filled with gardens, exotic flowers, and avocado trees. There is a massive vegetable garden that gardeners will give you a tour of. All the food grown in the garden is organic and used in the restaurant at the hotel. There is an...

Culture, relaxation, incredible views, activities to our liking, and wonderful hosts are what we experienced at Hotel Toliman. I sent them many emails asking questions and requesting their help to set up guided activities. They responded quickly and were better than any concierge from a high end hotel. I say better because they not only willingly set up everything I...

Hotel Toliman is a fine family run hotel of the finest quality found in Guatemala. They offer day trips and kayaking and guidance to other areas than one can travel for the day. Wonderful food as well.

I stayed in Panajachel for a night and immediately realised it was not what I expected. I started looking for somewhere else and I'm so happy to have found this gem!! This is not a place for those who want nightlife or meet other young travellers, since it is off the tourist track. It is a place for those who...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A rustic and comfortable family-run hotel built on the grounds of a former coffee factory. While its extensive gardens and lake views foster a feeling of seclusion and relaxation, our central location in a Guatemalan town unspoiled by tourism lets you experience traditional village life. An excellent place to undertake outdoor adventures and eat delicious local food, supplied mostly by our own organic garden.
