I stayed at the hotel Rancho Grande for 3 nights, recuperating from a terrible back problem. The staff were there to greet me and were aware of my medical ailment and were very helpful. They had secured the services of a back specialist who started treatment 2 hours after I arrived. The staff looked after me wonderfully and were very... More

Our family of 6 along with another family of 5 spent time at the Rancho Grande. Honestly, you will not find a better hotel for the price. The breakfast is amazing, absolutely delicious pancakes, the best ever! Everything was clean and the yards were well kept. We lived close to Panajachel for awhile and really truly you will not get...

We stayed two nights in late Feb. 2011. The pluses were the location, the cleanliness, and the care of the grounds. We were in a small cottage and had a deck that overlooked the lawns. The breakfast (included) was excellent coffee, scrambled eggs, fresh buns, wonderful pancakes and, of course. black beans. The only negative...no hot water when we arrived,... More

My husband, myself, and our 3 school-aged children had traveled to Panajachel in order to visit a non-profit which supports Mayan girls' schooling. We'd collected a suitcase of needed school supplies to bring this organization based in Panajachel. Our stay at the Rancho Grande Inn came at the end of our Guatemala trip. Prior to this, we had lived for... More

This was the second time I stayed here. My friend goes to Guatemala several times a year and she always stays here. I can see why: the rooms are large and cozy with carved wooden furniture. The bathroom was good-sized too - enough for three women to share without getting on each others' nerves. The rooms are set back from... More

When we stayed at Rancho Grande, I honestly thought that the owner must have simply used The Golden Rule as her guide for running this finely tuned oasis. From the absolutely spotless room and bath to the split wood for the fireplace, to the manicured gardens, the scrumptious & unique breakfast, the sparkling pool and a layed back owner with... More

After much difficulty finding other accommodation off tripadvisor, we went past Rancho Grande. What a find. Wonderful helpful staff. The owner is a treasure. They put us in the honeymoon suite which was a lovely villa across the road from the Reception. Secure parking for the motorbike. Awesome pancakes for breakfast are a must. Easy walk into the village. The... More

I am fortunate to travel a great deal...world-wide...so I am always intrigued by finding and staying at hidden gems in far-away places like Panajachel. Last night and this morning we were fortunate to spend time at Matilda's immaculate Rancho Grande Inn on Rancho Grande Calle in Panajachel...sometimes referred to as Lake Atitlan. We called from Chichi on Su to confirm... More
