What a lovely place with fantastic staff. We had a rainforest cabin, which was super with a lovely view towards the lake. We really appreciated the early morning coffee brought to us by the staff.

Not only, is it well located for all the top sites in the area, especially Tikal, there are things to do at La Lancha itself, not least of which was sitting at the mirador enjoying the landscape.

Staff helped us spot spider monkeys and different types of birds. It really mattered to them that we felt at home and enjoyed ourselves.

Sadly, La Lancha was the end of our truly wonderful holiday in Guatemala, but they made it a very happy end.

Dear Claire;

We are so grateful to read such a wonderful review on us.
It gives us great satisfaction to learn that you have enjoyed every aspect of your stay!
That is our idea to make you feel as if you are home away from home in this jungle surrounded by spider/howler monkeys and charming birds.
So remember when you are ready to plan your next trip, your rainforest cabin with stunning lake views and our welcoming mirador with magnificent view to our enchanted Lake Peten Itza await for you!!
Best Regards.

This hotel is a “boutique experience” set in the perfect location with excellent service.The lake is beautiful creating a feeling of tranquil isolation and an atmosphere of exclusivity. Our villa had very comfortable beds, lovely fresh bed linen and the attention to detail such as eco shower and shampoo products and home baked cookies provided in the rooms was “spot on.”This is an hotel for families with teenagers plus, younger children are more than welcome however, I feel that this would not really work for them or other guests alike. The other benefit of staying here is that the hotel is perfectly located for Tikal a must stay if you come to Guatemala.

We came to La Lancha on our honeymoon, having been to other luxury hotels throughout our trip, we found la lancha to have the some of the highest standards.

Our suite was in newest area of the hotel, and was spacious, cool, comfortable and beautifully designed.

We spent a lot of time swimming in the lakes crystal clear waters, diving off the pristine wooden decking and paddle boarding. Sometime it felt as if the whole lake was ours, we never saw a boat on the lake and it was completely unpolluted by plastic waste unlike Lake Aititlan.

Highly recommend the sunrise tour to Tikal with La Lancha's guide, Antonio. It was an unforgettable experience. He knew the park inside out, and got us everywhere first so it felt like we were the only ones experiencing the ruins. His knowledge of Mayan archaeology was impressive.

All the staff at La Lancha worked tirelessly to make sure we had the best time possible.

Highly recommend.
