Wanted to take a trip to Tikal and decided on Cahal Pech Village Resort as our home base. The resort is about 1.5 hours from the Belize City airport by car, and about a 3-hour drive to Tikal (one way) on some pretty rough roads. We received great advice from the tour operator in the lobby, and our drive to Tikal worked out perfectly.
The room was fine - air conditioner worked well, bed was comfortable and it was fun to sleep under a thatched roof and a mosquito net. Although we didn't use it much, the hammock on the screened in front porch had a wonderful view was a nice bonus. Found it funny that there was a TV, but the power cord did not reach the outlet and simply hung from the wall-mounted TV. Shower was a little chilly on the first morning, but we let it run for 5-10 minutes on our second morning and got plenty of heat.
The food and drinks at the resort's restaurant were convenient and cheap, compared to what we're used to in the United States (although I'm sure you could find cheaper in downtown San Ignacio, just a short walk down the hill). The pool looked well-maintained, but we only got to put it to use once since most of our daylight was spent in Tikal.
