This is a pretty good hotel, yet there are hotels better located nearer Tikal if that is where you are going, and it lacks the atmosphere of staying on Flores island itself. Still, it does a pretty good job - food was good, service was good too.

During my three-night stay at the Hotel Peten Esplendido the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, especially the reception, continually impressed me. In my experience, it is the small touches such as a cool welcoming drink, reasonable laundry rates, and competent reception staff, which make the difference. When I was unable to acces my own e-mail account in an emergency,...

I just stayed for one night. Friendly, helpful staff, a good value for money room (Holiday Inn standard) open air restaurant with menu beyond Guatemalan level. Would return.

OK. Let me start by saying I stayed at this hotel in 2001, not 2010. I was not given the option. But I felt that my review may help a few people. The UPS: Top floor room has a great view of the lake and the island, Room service is very well organized, restaurant menu was well prepared and has...

Arrived at the Peten Esplendido after a very long day traveling from Mexico. Right from the start I was impressed - reception staff were great and very accommodating. We had a minor logistical issue that our group needed to resolve and no request was turned down by the hotel staff. A good, comfortable hotel to relax in after an exhausting...

After spending the day hiking round and up the ruins at Tikal, arrived back at the hotel to...

This hotel was fine. The pool with waiter service was particularly nice. The rooms were fine, and the view from the balcony good. I just think the hotel is too expensive for what it offers and would spend the money on something else. I'm fine spending money on hotels, this one just doesn't merit it.

After reading reviews on this site, I was a bit concerned about staying at the Espléndido. However, considering the choices available in Flores/Santa Elena, I think that Espléndido is probably among the best options available. It's by no means splendid, but it fit the bill. My room was small, but comfortable and clean and the hotel pool provided a nice...

I stayed at the hotel two nights with three girlfriends and we were initially delighted with the amenities -- we had air conditioning, easy access to Flores (though it is not located in the main part of town), and to the ruins. This quickly eroded as it became obvious that the staff was not there to help in the slightest....

I`m glad I did not have a bad experience at the Peten esplendido as the previous review, seems that they had some Petenian experience with people, I have several years traveling to Peten and have being in several of the Peten hotels, the main problem is at the general level, the peten people have no clue about service the way...
