They have a terrific website and a beautiful hotel. The grounds are gorgeous and right near Lake Peten Itza. There’s a dock behind the property for swimming although I didn’t swim there as families were washing clothes and dishes in the lake.
The staff is friendly but we were disappointed—they don’t seem great at helping with less-well-known tourism stuff. For example, we wanted to go to Ixpanpajul park, which is mentioned on the don David website but the staffer didn’t have a suggestion for how to get there or know how far it was.
The on-site restaurant was great (but I was disappointed, they ran out of the vegetarian special on a night I really wanted to try it). Room rates include either breakfast or dinner special.
Free internet access and beautful grounds made this a great place to stay.
