We stayed during Semana Santa without having a reservation and the staff were very accommodating - they worked hard to find a room for us and were always helpful. The property is gated/fenced, with armed security guards (common in Guatemala) and we felt very safe letting our older children explore alone. The wifi was excellent (even better than at the...
