Hacienda Tijax is wonderful. We've stayed at the Tortugal many times in the past, and love it, so I wasn't sure what to expect at Tijax. But it surpassed my expectations. Great location on the Rio, maybe two minutes by lancha to the docks at Sundog or Rio Bravo. Tranquil waterfront bar/restaurant, with killer coffee starting at 6:00 a.m. Really good food if you don't feel like hitting town.
And they have Lucy! Lucy is a trip guide. She took us up to the tower and through the jungle one evening, and organized another trip to a waterfall the following day. she's friendly, funny, and super helpful. Look for her when you are there.
Almost forgot--the swimming pool is beautiful and a nice way to cool off in the evening. The fountains/waterfalls on the sides are a nice touch.
The only problem with Tijax is that it is so far away from where we live...I'm ready to go back now.
