I decided to stay at Utz Jay because of all of the wonderful reviews it had and it was recommended by a friend. Unfortunately, my stay here was probably the worst experience I have ever had with a hotel. After spending the afternoon on the lake I came back to my room to find that my backpack had been completely...

The Utz Jay hotel is in a wonderful location. It is a block or two from the lake and is a cozy little enclave of cabin-like rooms. I had an upstairs room with an incredible porch with cozy chairs. The most comfortable bed that I've had in Guatamala. The greenery and flowers hanging from the porch lovely. The room had...

The Utz-Jay is all the way down Calle Santander (the main street in Panajachel that leads down, literally, to Lake Atitlán), on the side street to the left just one block from the street's end. As you go down Calle Santander you are overwhelmed by all the clap-trap commercial ventures of a mid-budget resort town desperate to peel off tourists'...

We recently spent two nights here and were very pleased. We had an upstairs room with a balcony, very nicely decorated with hot shower and comfortable bed. The location is good as it is on a side street, but has easy access to the main area of town - we found the hotel to be peaceful and quiet, and the...

Wonderful place to stay, really central near the main street and very close to get the boats to the other villages. I arrived really late (3.30am) and someone was there to check me in and see that everything was ok. Showers were hot, which is nice after a long day hiking up the volcanoes or whatever you are doing. It...

The large room was lined with windows that looked out on the trees and plants of the gardens below. The sounds of birds filled the air. It was walking distance to shops, museums and the lake. There was only one night that the jukeboxes in town could be heard. (Friday, of course) Mostly it was just the sounds of nature....

We stayed two nights in this gorgeous hotel. It is well located close to the Main Street and to the lake. The room was good sized and they pay attention to the decoration details. The only negative thing was that We found some spiders in the room. The prices were reasonable and the restaurant has a good breakfast. We suggest...

Hotel Utz Jay is a small hotel in Panajachel, a tourist town on Lake Atitlan. You will definitely know you are in a tourist town, as it remains noisy with the sounds of the bars/music/barking dogs, etc until pretty late at night. I'm not fussy, but since I was there on a minor local holiday, I got to listen to...

I really enjoyed this little hotel! The owners are very nice and helpful. I had a bungalow on the second floor and one of the workers helped me bring my suitcases up, because I have some health issues. They have very nice little gardens to take photos of. The dogs are very nice. The room itself was very nice, modern...
