The front lobby and reception did little to impress weary travellers. Our room had a lovely view over to Flores Island but it was small and very basic. The bathroom was also small and had seen better days. The bar area and restaurant were set around the pool and these all overlooked Lake Peten and Flores Island which was very...

Dear Customer appreciate your opinion is very important to understand their concerns. It is gratifying to have had him in our facilities . Surely in your next visit will take a better impression because we are initiating remodeling both rooms as other important areas that you feel comfortable and satisfied with our service in general.

Probably best summed up as double room rack rate £15, gin and tonic in the bar £6. This is a Guatemala version of a campanile. Beds passable, just. Bathroom tiny and nearly clean, but with no coat hook and a shower curtain that is definitely passed its best. The safe box cannot be used because they have lost all keys....

We loved the hotel, friendly staff, nice food, BEAUTIFUL view of Lake Petén Itza. The rooms are being remodeled. You can walk to the other side, to visit Isla de Flores. Loved the pool, you can take a lot of different tours they have, hotel pick up, excellent service overall.

Great Hotel just of the bridge to the Flores island. Ideal situated with view of the lake and the island, and just a short walk over the bridge. OK rooms spacious and clean, nothing special but with great view. Great food is served and friendly staff, English is a problem

Coming from our visit in Belize, we were told NOT take any pix of anyone in uniform. Kinda makes you feel a little uneasy. But this hotel eased those concerns. It overlooks a beautiful lake (although rm 208 overlooks part of a roof below :-( ). It was quiet & clean & staff was friendly. Food was good esp breakfast....

Trip started off badly as the hotel did not honour the reservation I had made through Booking.com. I appreciate that this was over the Easter period and therefore might have been a challenge. The star of the show was Juan at the reception. He really solved all of my problems by finding me another hotel. Did offer me breakfast and...

Rooms are fine and clean but nothing special. The pool area is nice, which is right by the restaurant. Breakfast buffet has loads of fresh fruit and a selection of cereals/meats and juices (including watermelon!). Located right next to the bridge to Flores, a good walk.

The hotel sits on the shores of the lake overlooking the city of Flores, but in our case the view from the window was less enthralling. We looked out onto a modern shopping mall and a funfair both of which were very noisy. When they eventually quietened down we were kept awake by one the of noisiest air conditioning units...

Our room was on the third floor (that is, American calculation but second and highest floor in British parlance) at the front of the hotel which is actually the back. In any case it overlooked a noisy street and a vacant piece of ground and not the lake and we were presumably put here because our tour company had not...

We stayed here 2 nights with a group. The rooms were basic but clean. The views of the lake were great, and it was an easy walk to the island of Flores. It was a secure location to stay while in the area to visit Tikal. The meal service for our group was excellent. The breakfast buffet had great fruit,...
