“Beautiful location”

El Portal de Champey
Ranked #3 of 10 Restaurants in Lanquin
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 April 2017 via mobile

I would highly recommend staying here. It is located right next to the pools entrance which is worth it in itself. It is a beautiful spot overlooking the river.
We stayed in a private room with bathroom. It was comfortable and clean but very basic and no hot water, if That bothers you. Electricity is from 6-11pm and there is a solar light out of these hours.
Food is fine really and costs 40-60Q per meal. We only ate at the hostel but there were two small local restaurants within walking distance.

Spent two nights here while exploring Semuc Champey. I would do this again! Simple hostal just minutes from the entrance to the park. Limited electricity: only 6 - 11pm and no hot water, but all is well. Nice menu on site and friendly staff.

The location is the best! 5min to the park and 5min to the caves. The hostel is OK. The huts look nice, but are really noisy (especially when a guy is snorring like hell in the hut next to you!). The hostel has a restaurant, which is really necessary, since there are no restaurants or other places close to this one. Lanquin is 30min by truck. Once you get at Lanquin, there are lots of people screaming the name of the different hostels. They will put you in the back of the truck and drive you to your hostel - really easy.
The restaurant has cheap food, not the best ever. But for one or two nights it is OK.

No need to book a tour for Semuc Champey, just go there on your own. And don't miss the caves (which are not in the semuc park, but on the right side of the hostel - close to the bridge. You will see). It was truly one of the best things I have ever done! Make sure you have good watershoes, they will provide you the candle (or bring a flashlight) it is sooooo much fun! This cave is not the Lanquin cave, I have 't been there though.

Great atmosphere with the best view in the the resort.
The couples room are large and comfortable- there is no hot water but the facilities are very comfortable.
There is no WIFI, there is option to pay with credit card ( so be prepared!)
There is a restaurant in the hostal with good food - but this is your only choice that you have.
With all of the above , still, one of the best places we stayed-> absolutely good vibe!

Highly recommend!!!
