I found this place to have lots of amenities. They have a nice restaurant, beautiful swimming pool, hot tub and beach. The rooms had patios with a view of the lake, birds and monkeys. You can drink the water and use the ice. An excursion to Tikal is a must. The sunset over the lake was wonderful.

The Camino Real is a very spacious property with a larger number of rooms than other hotels in the area and thus an obvious location for tour groups to Tikal. On the one hand this means a crowded dining room at breakfast and dinner but on the other a very quiet and enjoyable resting place during the day, when it... More

right on the lake, wonderfully quiet, amid great flora & fauna, a 30 min. ride to Tikal National Park (excursions are sold from the hotel), with a nice restaurant, and very good value for money.

Including safety box, nice bathroom and shower, extra towel/linnen service in the evening, and english tv channels! The service by the friendly staff was more than outstanding. ex: I take an espresso each morning, the 3rd morning my espresso was... More

My entire family was so impressed with this hotel. We were traveling with a three year old so we were thrilled to have such a beautiful and friendly hotel for our "home away from home." We were treated to two complimentary boat rides on the georgeous Lake Peten Itza and also got to use the kayaks on the lake when... More

We were met at the airport as arranged (the only hotel in Guatemala who managed to do so) for a free transfer, don't book a private one its not worth the money. The hotel has a beautiful setting on the shores of the lake within the Cerro Cahui National Park. It is approximately an hours walk to the village of... More

I enjoyed my four night stay at this hotel. The room itself was nothing special, but not disappointing either. The air-conditioner worked appropriately. The television was small and had several channels, few of which were in English; but I wasn't there to watch TV. There was a keyed safe in the closet and a hair-dryer, but no alarm clock. The...

We passed our Easter holidays in Guatemala with our five year old son & seven year old daughter. This hotel was one of our favorites. The green location at the lake (including an own private beach) is just perfect. The view out of our room & the dining area is amazing. Also the distance between both of them is very... More

Camino Real Tikal takes advantage of the fact that it is close to the ruins and is one of the few "upscale" hotels around in order to overcharge all of the poor saps it calls its guests. Try US$20 for a cold, tasteless plate of pasta served at dinner and US$4 beers in a country where the beers are less... More

The Camino Real is a great hotel when visiting Tikal and Peten. Rooms are clean, airconditioned, with good showers and TV. The restaurant has a great view overlooking the lake. Service is good and food very superior to what is served at the Jungle Lodge. You can't go wrong staying here.
