Had a great stay here in April 2009. Surprised it has so few recent reviews, so here is an up to date one. Location, 15 mins taxi Flores/airport in secluded location. Wondered where they were taking us, as the entry is down a rocky old private road, but on arrival, is a just lovely peaceful haven from the heat, dust... More

I went to bed to beautiful sunsets, and woke up to the sounds of monkeys, McGaws. The hotel was very comfortable, excellent location.

I spent two nights at this excellent hotel in the jungles the Guatemala Highlands in order to visit the nearby Mayan sites of Tikal and Yaxha as part of an Overseas Adventure Travel OAT Route of the Mayas adventure program. The room was basic but very comfortable. One does not go to the jungle to experience luxury! Food service and... More

Villa Maya was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and experienced. Extremely relaxing and serene. The accomodations were great (even though there was no tv - but thats the best part!). You feel like you are in a totally different world. The mist over the laguna in the morning was breathtaking. Very quiet place to relax... More

I emailed this place and was booked at another of their chain of hotels by the staff member that responded to my email. Only after I corrected her did she finally get the reservation for the right hotel (at double the price 55 to 105!). We left for our trip, and one week before our stay at Villa Maya I... More

We stayed here for two nights in December and just loved it. The place is in the rainforest outside of Flores town, about 15 minutes. It has a very secluded feel with a great sense of design. Very modern in a 70s kind of style. Very interesting layout. We stayed in a room that was a new cottage, farthest away... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Villa Maya. Nice hotel. Clean rooms. Very courteous staff. The food at their restaurant was very good. The location is in the middle of the jungle so you will hear howler monkeys, lots of birds, and insects. The scarlet macaws are a sight to see. There is internet access available at the front desk. No... More

I would definatively reccomend this place to anyone wanting to relax and enjoy nature! They have a buffet which is fantastic and this is located not too far... More

We spent two nights here on a Caravan tour. It is really a NEAT place! It was designed beautifully--an open air lobby and dining room beside a wonderful (but deep) pool. It is surrounded by the jungle and two lagoons. The rooms are located 4 to a building. Nice size and clean. Food was good and staff friendly. We saw... More

The Villa Maya was one of the prettiest places I've ever stayed. It is surrounded by a lagoon and has nature trails to walk on to see the water and wildlife. The check-in desk is entirely open-air, quite unusual, as are the dining areas because you are in a jungle area that can be extremely hot and steamy. The food... More
