“Read the reviews and was disappointed ”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

First the good: it is clean and has a dresser to put clothing in. One half of the dresser even had a lock.
The bad for room 15: the bed was the worst I have had in Guatemala, the water was freezing, the hammocks are plastic and uncomfortable, the sign on the back on the door (from the government) said they could only charge a max of 100Q for one person. They charged me 150Q.
It was so bad that I left and paid 80Q and had a great room down the street.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with friends

This hotel is by far the best I've stayed at in San Pedro. The room service staff really do their job and the room and the bathroom were impeccable. Outside the rooms there are hammocks and a nice view. The price is really good, the beds are comfortable and the staff is really nice!

This place is amazingly clean and so cheap for what you get. Rooms have a TV, shower is warm, you have a view at the lake and can relax in hammocks on the veranda. Really, really nice and very central!

We moved into Nahual Maya after staying in a horrible dingy place that was roughly the same price. We felt like we had upgraded to heaven.

The rooms are clean, bright and well appointed including TV. The bathrooms are similar and the showers are hot. They clean the rooms daily, including sheets and towels, provide soap and generally keep the whole place spotless.

Outside each room is a hammock and chair for relaxation. From the upstairs balcony you get a bit of a lake view.

Laundry service was efficient and quick.The staff are friendly and helpful, permanently smiling.

Overall great value and a lovely place to stay. It get's a bit noisier at the weekends as city folk descend on San Pedro for fun.

Room Tip: Upstairs is better if you want a view. Check the wi-fi signal as it is weak/non-existent in the room...

If you dont want to stay at a party hostel, this is a good option. I absolutely loved staying here. If you travel solo, remind yourself it's a hotel and you don't meet a lot of people.

The rooms downstairs are Q100. You'll get a spacious room, double bed, tv, wifi in the room and private bathroom (really huge) with hot water. They are extremely clean. Every day my room was cleaned, new towels, soap, toiletpaper, bedsheets and a bottle of water.

Table, chairs and hammocks outside in a big garden. Just good for hanging out.

Negative point is that the rooms are noisy. You can hear the neighbours and outside, especially the alley right behind the hotel.

Fridge to use but turned off at night

I really like this hotel and have stayed here several times. The place is spotlessly clean, the owners are friendly, and it's central to everything. It's far enough away, maybe a five minute stroll, from the pubs that you don't get the loud music or rowdy drunks in the street keeping you up all night. As Leigh says, it's Q100 per person and Q125 per couple as of November 2013.

I would give it five stars, however, the Internet connection is very slow and often unavailable in the rooms. It works fine on the (lovely, comfortable) balcony, but really poorly when you just want to relax in your room.

I'll still stay here when I visit San Pedro, but I'm on the lookout for a nice place with a better internet connection.

I stayed here for one night. Great location. Very clean and secure. WiFi provided free. Rooms have flat screen TV's with cable and comfortable clean beds. Thoroughly recommended and my number one choice in San Pedro. 100Q for one person and 125Q for two people.
