Two of us spent two days at the Benque Resort and Spa; we were the only guests at the time. Benque itself is a sleepy little town, and the places of interest can be seen in a couple hours at most. The town is an excellent base from which to visit Guatemala, the nearby Xunantunich ruins and the town of San Ignacio. If you want excitement and activity, this is NOT the place for you. If you want to relax and unwind, delicious vegetarian meals cooked from scratch, challenging yoga taught by one of the strongest instructors I've ever encountered, this IS the place for you. Our hosts, Laine and Evan, were gracious and accommodating and worked hard to make us feel comfortable and welcome (and were super supportive when I lost my cell phone).
Okay, so the hot water took a while to get to the shower---if you want instant everything, predictability and everything just like back home-- go stay in a Hilton or Marriott and leave the charming, interesting, unique places for the rest of us to enjoy.
