Our family of 4 (2 kids/2adults) stayed for 3 nights at La Casa de Don David August 2013 and it was fantastic. The staff kept the restaurant (absolutely the best around) open late to serve us dinner the night we arrived, arranged outings and generally took care of us including last minute laundry when we came home drenched after a bicycle ride along the lake. The hotel is perfectly located to enjoy the lake for swimming, renting bicycles, or hiking in biotopo Cerro Cahui (an easy walk), or venture out to the local ruins including Tikal and Yaxha. The whole family had a blast, and after looking at the other places to stay along the lake first hand (having spent hours on Trip advisor before our trip) I would recommend Don David's place over any of them, especially for families.
