This place has excellent location at the end of the road, just next to the lake. The atmosphere is very calm, bungalows are clean and bright and for 150Q (shared bathroom) we found it a great value. The nearby hotel asked for 150Q with barroom, but in no-style warm bungalow with a window to opposite bungalow. Bungalows in Mon Ami... More

Positive things: the garden with the nice bungalows, warm water in the shower if you want (don't look at the construction), the water cooler in the room, the swimming pier in the lake (no shade or bench though), with the great view. Negative: management. They hardly speak english, so it's hard to communicate. During our 3 night stay the room... More

We came here to eat, and Norma is just wonderful. We got to meet Patrick which it is also nice (he hangs out a lot in Mon Ami. We got to meet amazing travelers, hear their stories and enjoy the view. Norma makes you feel like at home, and her food is delicious!!!!

Planning a visit to Tikal we had the option of staying in Flores or El Remate to break the journey from Antigua. Our adult kids were travelling in Guatemala at the time and had stayed there for a few nights and decided that Mon Ami at El Remate was the place we should come to and meet them. So we... More

We spent three nights here, one longer than intended. It's in a great location on the side of the lake and a nice pier to hang out on. The water is great for swimming. The rooms are a little tired looking and the WiFi is nearly not worth the hassle of waiting. Having said that, I do acknowledge it is... More

It is our favorite place to stay so far. 3 visits and still thinking of going back. I recommend it if your standards are NOT 5 star hotels. If you have too high standards look elsewhere as this is a cosy eco type hotel with a great atmosphere. It feels like home away from home. Laid back and relaxed. Do... More

We stayed here for three nights, rather than in Flores, as a jumping off point to Tikal and Yax ha. El Remate is much more rural and quieter and we loved it here. I don't get the reviews that talk about the unfriendly employees. Mario, Nora, and Lili were all great, very accommodating, and willing to help. The prices are... More

We stayed at Hotel Mon Ami while visiting the El Remate area as a stop over to see the ruins at Tikal. The location of the hotel is right across the street from the lake with a great dock for swimming or enjoying the sunset over the lake. The rooms were pretty good for the price as well, and the...
