San Marcos was for us more interesting than the other villages around the lake. Smaller, less touristic and a better vibe. The hotel is built on the hillside and on the edge of the lake. Since their private pier has been destroyed, you have to climb a small hill outside of town and then go down their stairs (10 minutes...

My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights and really loved it. The rooms are a bit more expensive but the view is incredible. We stayed in Casita which was about $30 per night with a shared bathroom. We had a beautiful hammock outside our room that overlooked the entire lake. Our room was cleaned daily and the restaurant...

We stayed here for 8 nights in total and overall had a great time though the last night left us with a bit of a bitter taste. The first 7 nights (200Q per night or $26) were lovely. We had a private room without a bathroom but with a lovely view (we stayed in Casito). The room was cleaned daily...

We accidentally found hotel jinava by bumping into a friend in San Marcos who immediately recommended it. After a quick stroll up the hill from centre of town, we arrived at this stunning and secluded lake-side resort. My girlfriend and I were dazzled by the breathtaking views and pristine tropical gardens. Paradise! The rooms are cute and romantic, the atmosphere...

The staff is very nice. The hotel is super clean. Beautiful view of the lake. Great dock if you want to enjoy diving into the lake and just relax to see the sun set and rise. I recommend this Hotel! Cheers!

I would love to give Hotel Jinava 5 stars, as it is one of the only hotels in San Marcos located directly on the lake with it's own dock near water that you would want to swim in. It is truly beautiful. The rooms are quite nice, the food only so so. Depending on who is working at the time...

My wife and I discovered this wonderful hotel in the hills of San Marcos La Laguna, at Lake Atitlán, during our honeymoon in 2012, and it became a wonderful memory of the beginning of our married life. Last weekend, we returned to Jinava for our 2nd year anniversary. It's still pure bliss. It doesn't have a tv or wifi, but...

If ur heading to San Marcos go straight to this place located within a few minutes of the village centre with great views of the lake and beautiful grounds and rooms all for a reasonable price. Staff were really nice and welcoming and served some great food. Highly recommended.

The service is too poor, the employees just treat people very wrong and the owner was drunk when we talked to him. The place might have a beautiful view of the lake but you have to go up and down with your luggage too many stairs. If you are going to bring your own food there is a fee you...
