“Great view and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013 via mobile

A great place to stay in Flores. The pool is like heaven especially after a long hot hike through Tikal.
Views are great from the balcony and sundowners a must when on the top floor (room 41).
Rooms have both fan and a/c which is very pleasant.
Meals are not included but there's a great restaurant by the pool or a wide choice around the town.

I spent one night here on the return from Tikal. The room I had was clean, but probably the worst room in the hotel in terms of any view ... looked out onto a passage way. Room also featured AC and cable TV. Hotel has large, open, lovely public spaces, including a small pool and large restaurant. WiFi worked well in public areas, not so well in my room.

I spent one night at the Casona de la Isla, and I loved it! This is definitely the hotel I will stay at for future trips to Flores. Depending on the room you get a great view of the lake, and it is centrally located to nice restaurants, bars, and shops.
The staff is VERY friendly and accomodating. We checked out of our hotel at 4:00am to head to Tikal at 4:30am. We asked them if we can leave our luggage (5 heavy suitcases) with the hotel staff while we spent the day in Tikal. They said NO PROBLEM, and kept our luggage in the reception office until 5:00pm that day! That was very nice of them.
The rooms are great with comfortable beds, good A/C, and are of decent size. This will be my hotel of choice for all future trips to Flores! Thank you Casona de la Isla!

We stayed in room 16 which has 3 double beds. The room was spacious, had TV, AC, hot water, and a great view of the pool and lake! The room was clean, the beds were a variety of harder or softer which suited our individual likes (family of 5). The shower didn't drain as fast as would have been nice but in an old building in an old city, I don't expect things to work perfectly! My only real complaint is I couldn't get any fresh air into the room as the window facing the pool and lake could open but the window in the bathroom could not be opened. The day we arrived there was a lovely lake breeze blowing and the room seemed stuffy. Once the AC ran for a while the room was tolerable but a bathroom window which could open would have made me extremely happy and satisfied.
Other than that, the location was great, the pool was fun for the kids, the building was pleasingly painted and decorated with living plants. We didn't try the restaurant downstairs but had a wonderful meal across the road on the lake's edge at Dona Goya's Restaurant (highly recommended)!
I slept well and heard very little street noise considering it was a Saturday night.
The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.

A very nice hotel to relax after an exciting but tyring day in one of the archeological sites, with a pool and a great view. Remember that breakfast is not included in the price. We were surprised that they charged the credit card we used to reserve the hotel in booking.com. And they did it one day before our arrival. Because of it, we were not able to include the consumption in the restaurant to our main bill, but it was not a big deal.
The rooms are a bit worn and there is no air circulation, since windows don´t open. But you have air conditioning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the window to the pool, not to the street. First we got one to the street and it...

This is one of many hotels in the small island town of Flores, situated some 60 kilometers south of Tikal. It is among the two best. There is a breakfast/dining area next to reception and a patio facing the lake. Many rooms face the pool in the inner courtyard and a few the lake beyond. Immediate to the hotel on the lake side are several good restaurants. It is a short walk ( perhaps a kilometer ) to a mall on Santa Elena shore where there is a full grocery. Other hotel amenities: Hot showers, potable water, a/c. Some English as well as Spanish spoken.

Room Tip: I liked the triple, even for the two of us, as the extra space was desirable. Also, the triple faces...

Rooms to the pool are quieter, we were lucky to stay in one of these. After January 15th might be a better time to go to Flores. First half of January a lot of cracking is going on. I learned that it is because of the church patronage is celebrated 15th January. The AC is noisy but rooms are clean and breakfast is included.

Room Tip: Rooms to the pool are quieter....
