This hotel looks more like one I would find in Florida. My very large room was on the second floor with an outside walkway, and overlooked the pool and a lake. There were two double beds, night stand, desk and storage unit, phone, TV, floor lamp, small table and chair. The AC worked fine here and so did the free... More

We initially had booked into another hotel in Flores but 'cut our losses' and left as it wasn't very nice. We found Hotel Casona del Lago online and booked it straight away as it was lovely. The room was very clean and very comfortable (despite not having a mini fridge for keeping drinks cold). The staff were lovely and very... More

This hotel actually lives up to the pictures, the rooms were VERY clean, and VERY spacious. We had a room facing the pool however we could easily look at the lake. There doesn't seem to be a need for a lake view unless you want a private balcony (also very large). The pool was very nice and the free breakfast... More

The hotel is in front of the lake Peten Itza, with a nice view. However, it is also next to a noisy road. Tip: ask for a room which does not face the road. The rooms are very simple and spacious enough. The bathroom had some flaws in our case: both the shower and the basin drains were partially jammed.... More

It was a nice and clean hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Nice swimming pool and jacuzzi helps you to relax after a hard and hot day visiting Tikal. It is within walking distance of the Island. The restaurant is nice and breakfast was very good.

I stayed there one night for work. It really is a nice hotel. No luxury but very comfortable. It's located accross Flores Island wich means is far from the noise of the local nightlife. Staff is kind and always looking to make you as comfortable as possible :-) Nice view of the lake, and great pool and restaurant area.

I spent two nights in Santa Elena on a trip to see Tikal. Overall I enjoyed my time at Casona del Lago greatly. I was more comfortable than I expected and at ease the whole time. Check in was efficient and easy. I booked my day trip to Tikal upon arrival. My room was quite large and very basic. The... More

This hotel caters largely for groups, both foreign and national. If you have the luxury of been able to choose your hotel avoid this one at all cost. Flimsy rooms and cheap plastic finish will remind you of the worst business hotels located in Milton Keynes, moldy bread served at breakfast, noisy and unwelcoming. In contrast the nearby Maya International... More

We booked here because we couldn't get anywhere on Flores. It worked out fine. 10 Q tuk tuk ride or 10 minute walk across to Flores. It was great to be able to come back and cool off in the pool. Rooms standard hotel rooms, lovely views across the lake, everything worked. I agree about security, our balcony door didn't... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a group. 2 of the 5 rooms booked did not have hot water (too far down the line). Of most concern was the security of rooms. The doors were thin and flimsy with cheap bathroom type locks. There was no inner bolt. The previous night in another hotel one of our locked... More
