Decent Restaurant with Great Food

We stayed at La Lancha and had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. The local specialties served at dinner were very good, particularly the Pepian, a chicken stew with tomato and pumpkin seeds. The place is open air under a large palapa hut. The view is beautiful during the day, but at... read more

I had to ask 3 times for milk for my coffee. The packed breakfast turned out to be a few slices of fruit and no bread. Its annoying to check everything but i would advise you to do just that i including that your laundry has been properly washed.

Very nice hotel near the must-see ruins of Tikal and Yaxha. Room was nice and clean. Food in hotel was good but not really Guatemalan in my opinion. But a marvelous setting and very attentive english-speaking staff that really went out of their way when we needed help making an overland connection to Belize. Our favorite hotel of the trip.

We often ate in the hotel because it was very convenient. The food is very good especially the bass and pepian. Service is very attentive and professional. Prices are comparative to others in Flores

Really nice place this is, we where in the area and decided to go inside and have a drink. The ranch where the restaurant is, has a wonderful view of the lake. The bathrooms are clean as the rest of the place. The prices are reasonable considering is hard to get there and there is not much around. Had the... More

We stayed at La Lancha for two nights and loved it. We had intended on using it mostly as a base to explore the amazing Tikal, but ended up loving the hotel nearly as much! The rooms are lovely - wooden cabanas set in the rainforest - and the hotel has a great pool and enchanting lake, which you can... More

The food here is fabulous, the local White bass is wonderful. While I would consider it traditional Guatemalan cooking it is not a traditional Guatemalan restaurant. If we were not staying in the remote hotel as well I wouldn't have visited a second time. It was very expensive by local standards but by European standards the food was excellent value.... More

La Lancha is a restaurant AND a Hotel. Supposed to be a must since owned by the famous director Francis Ford Coppola, this place is actually not worth a penny. Very far from everything, the road to get to it is in very bad state first. Then, booking is very easy and get a refund very hard, or impossible, even... More

We had tried to book into La Lancha as part of our short stay in Guatemala but it was full, fortunately as it turned out. We were staying nearby at the much bigger Camino Real instead so we decided to make a dinner reservation at La Lancha and went along at about 8pm. The dining area is open, quite compact... More
