What a great place to stay. We were doing some house hunting and the property owner recommended this hotel. The room we had was truly a one of a kind, a raised King size bed, lounge area with TV and AC and a garden tub screened above and open to nature plus a separate shower with hot water. Sounds simple enough but many of the features are not available elsewhere. Plus the owner, Harald , is onsite , tri-lingual so we picked his brain for as much info on living nearby. as he could offer, and he filled our heads with great info. He was such a gracious host and his meals cooked with his wife, Sonia, were delicious and reasonably priced.
The grounds of the hotel are beautifully maintained , the pool and bar area stunning. It has such a private feel yet it is a 30 acre hidden jungle retreat close to town.
We loved the town of Izamal especially this hotel. We really appreciated all the owner's time and attention, he made us love the area even more. We were treated like royalty,as if we were the only guests , it was hard to imagine the place was nearly full.
We would unhesitatingly recommend this hotel and hope we can go back soon. Our biggest regret is we had only 2 nights to stay there, would have loved to have been able to stay longer.. We have stayed in many other countries and now count this as our favorite hotel for all around pleasure. And lest we forget the bed was so comfortable, best hotel bed by far.
