At the beginning of July 2014, I lead a tour group from Belize City to Tikal, where of course whilst there, i had to use a guide from their neck of the woods to conduct the tours for me.
Couple months prior to my arrival, I was doing some research on Tikal Inn and Tikal Lodge.
I emailed both places but choose Tikal Inn for this trip.
The room I stayed in was comfortable, nice and clean with screens on the windows. The Staff were very courteous and helpful.
However, the Receptionist that took good care of us is not the same person I was communicating with from the beginning, for the person who i was communicating with is apparently in Guatemala city. I wish I had the Hotels direct contact then, caz i had so many questions for them before I got there. and they either never bothered to answered my emails or took long to answered them. I was about to change my hotel because of this.
BUT, the Actual staff at the hotel, made it up to me. I am really happy with the service they provide me and my guest.
We booked the dinner and breakfast package. with the complimentary sunrise tour. the Guide who took us for the sunrise tour spoke good English and took care of my guest. on a side note, if you are doing the sunrise tour expect the unexpected. We never got to see the sunrise, for it was to misty. But, the way how the call of the jungle lets you know that day break is here is amazing.
We also did the sunset tour the day before, with a different guide. who took us to a different section than the sunrise tour guide. I wish i could have had the same guide that did the sunset tour with us for the sunrise tour. But if only i knew better.
My stay at the hotel was quite relaxing especially having the swimming pool in the middle of the jungle, the calls of the animals and birds at night adds to the adventure and thrill of being in the jungle. I would certainly use this hotel for my next trip. cheers and don't let the bugs bite, while you sleep. lol. and be prepared for the electricity to go off at a certain time and be back at a certain time cheers.
