We stayed here for two nights mainly to have easy access to the park. Basically, the hotel serves a purpose: you're in the park. Nothing more. The rooms are spacious and clean but haven't been updated in a long time. The pool area is rather forlorn and the pool wasn't very clean. The restaurant is massive but seemed deserted as there were never more than three tables occupied while we were there. Staff is friendly enough, though service seemed rather erratic at times (we were charged different prices for our breakfast (which wasn't included in the rather expensive room rate!) on both mornings, despite having the exact same thing, etc.) and at check out no one seemed to know how to do our bill or use the credit card machine. Transfers are expensive but reliable. So if you want to avoid the hour+ trek from Flores into Tikal on a day trip, this place will serve its purpose, but don't expect over-the-top luxury, amenities or service.
