This is a fun place to stay, and a great launching point for touring Tikal -- especially if you want to do one of the sunrise or sunset tours. They arrange the tours and you walk out the front door into the park. The pool is quite nice. Most things are fine, nice and quaint. There'll be howler monkeys in the trees in the parking lot.
BUT be aware: This is in the jungle. They have generator electrical power for a few hours in the morning and a few hours at night. Same for the internet. Same for hot water. Sometimes I had no water at all. Of course there's never air conditioning. The service is friendly and good, but of course they are dealing with the same limitations of power, water, etc.
If your personality can live with this style of place, you'll have a fine experience.
