My traveling companion and I had stayed at La Casa de Don David 10 years previously and were looking forward to our return trip to visit Tikal again, as well as to stay here. The grounds were even more beautiful and serene. Our room was immaculate and very pleasant Loved the hammocks to relax in.
The location on Lake Peten Itza makes it even more desirable. We wouldn't consider staying at another hotel if we returned to the area.
During our 5 night stay, Don David and Rosita spent quite a bit of time with us answering questions and providing information that we hadn't known. All of the staff were very attentive and helpful.
We could have as much purified water as we wished, which is important to us. The meals were very delicious. Room rates were very reasonable, and one meal is included in the rate.
We felt very safe, and it is quiet and peaceful at La Casa !! Many fond memories.
I must mention the enjoyment of an evening drink at the restaurant overlooking the beautiful grounds and lake ending a lovely day.
