I spent two nights at Yat B'alam and highly recommend it. The room was very clean, the fixtures, linens, and furniture were of good quality and the decor is tasteful and understated so it has a pleasant atmosphere. On a practical level it has a number of things going for it. First, great water pressure in the shower and plenty of hot water. Second, they have their own generator so when the power cuts out in Copan (daily) they are still up and running. Third, it is a block south of the main plaza, facing away from the square so you are close enough to walk there but are insulated from the noise. Fourth, they have their own little cafe that serves GREAT coffee (I visited several cafes in Copan and most of the coffee was watered down - but not the coffee at Balam!). And their breakfasts are pretty good as well. Finally, the staff is very nice and eager to help out in any way they can. When I checked out, after I had paid, the manager asked "What's the ONE thing we could do better?" I love that question - they dont have to ask, they have my money and I am out the door but they really want to know how they can improve. Overall this was a better experience than I have had in many American hotels costing twice as much.
