What a treat! You won't find a more charming location in Peten. The swimming here is delightful and a total lifesaver when you're drenched in sweat from head to toe after Tikal or the Cerro Cahui nature reserve. The dorm room is open-air with good mosquito netting. All beds in the dorms are doubles and the setting among the trees... More

Excellently located for the nature reserve and right on the water. Good location on the way to Tikal. First night room okay, second room was not as nice, gaps in the roof so we had to ask for a mosquito net. No AC. Food in the restaurant was good- get the pizza. Lovely host. A nicer rural option than Flores.

When we arrived at Mon Ami they could not find our reservations (with hotels.com), but luckily they had 1 bungalow available as reserved. Didier, the manager took care of every request we had. Only the personnel was a little "slow". When I asked one morning if they could switch on the wifi router so we could have internet, the lady... More

i loved this place. it was probably my favorite place in Guatemala because of how tranquil it was (we drove through Guatemala and found it pretty intense to navigate). the lake is lovely with warm water you will never want to get out of. the rooms are beautifully decorated. the restaurant has great fish and the staff is really kind...

If you don't mind the occasional roar of howler monkeys in the early morning, the Hotel/Restaurant Mon Ami is about the calmest place you'll find in Guatemala. Even more, it has the touch that's known in Spanish as "buen gusto," good taste. The words describe the hotel's layout, as well as the meals that French-born owner, Santiago Billy, creates in...

We spent three lovely days here at Mon Ami and loved it. Although you're off the beaten track and fairly isolated, if you like getting back to nature, taking dips in the lake and walking or horse riding, it's a perfect place to stay. We had a huge cabin right in the middle of the jungle with an en suite... More

Excellent place to stay, to rest, to enjoy nature and to eat deliciously. People are very friendly. We enjoyed very much our stay with my husband and will come back any time. We enjoyed the Full Moon nights, the tranquil blue green emerald lake, the strong windy rain storms and the sunny clear after rain lights of the day. The... More

Stayed here and did not regret it. Staff were friendly and chilled and it's in a beautiful setting. So much better than staying in Flores (where I was before). Room was clean and reasonably priced, though a little on the pricey side. Only a little though. Food- interestingly I found most of the food to be so so, unlike a... More

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. It's small and intimate. The design of the hotel and grounds is beautiful, the staff friendly, it's incredibly tranquil and I woke each morning to the sound of monkeys and wildlife around the hotel. This is the best place to stay for anyone wanting to be around the flores/Tikal... More
