“Huge rooms with gorgeous views and terraces over the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2011

We reserved a room at the top with a lake view...spectacular views and excellent value. The rooms are very large and well appointed. The fridge is very useful for keeping snacks to eat on the terrace outside the room which has tables and chairs and sofas. Just out of the centre, it is a quick walk to everywhere while being in a quiet and restful location. The hotel does not offer breakfast, but there are plenty of good restaurants nearby.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2011

We stayed at Casazul for a few nights last week. Although the room was nice enough, and the balcony was spectacular, it wasn't really anything exceptional. A few complaints: not being able to get two keys made it difficult for our group to be able to get in and out of the room / the ceiling on the staircase is quite low and my father kept hitting his head on it / nice balcony = a noisy noisy balcony. Our room faced the balcony which meant that I didn't get much sleep until everyone else went to bed.

Great place.
Booked in advance online.
Good room - with fridge and cold beers - ready to enjoy on the balcony with a stunning view!
Friendly staff who coped well with our broken Spanish.

The hotel is small with decent sized rooms. The top floor (303) rooms have a huge balcony overlooking the lake. Breakfast turned out to be roomservice. Tipico breakfast was included in the price. Rooms are cleaned daily with towels folded into a different animal every day. Staff was friendly and cooperative. Rooms have a fridge / minibar. We had a comfortable stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2010

This hotel cost us $35 a night... as the other reviewers suggest, ask for a water-view. Although the quaint hotel is not the newest of new as far as decor or fittings go.... Casazul is clean, comfy and convenient. Flores Island is tiny so you're guaranteed to be close to everything wherever you stay.. however, this hotel does have a strip of good restaurants on it's block which is extra handy. Casazul is an easy and safe option for Flores.

We prebooked two nights in Casa Azul through a tour operator in the UK and were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was!
We arrived on an early flight from Guatemala City, and obviously we couldn't check in straight away, but we were allowed to leave our bags behind the reception desk till 1pm, which was a good start (although the staff don't speak English so it was a bit of a linguistic challenge!). Our room (203 I think) was huge - two double beds, bathroom (although a barely tinted glass door...!) and a giant walk in wardrobe. We also had access to the balcony overlooking the lake, and both the balcony door and the bedroom door had bolts and chains so we felt safe at night too.
The toiletries and vanity kit etc in the bathroom were a nice touch, as was the way they made our clean towels into a dog on the second day - so cute! The free tea and coffee downstairs was also a bonus.
I think there are cheaper places to stay in Flores, but this is a really nice budget hotel for those who don't want to give up all their home comforts just to save a few dollars.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2010

To give an idea of context for this review, we were a group of 3 girls (aged 20, 31 & 32)spending 5 weeks travelling through Central America. We didn't fancy roughing it in hostels, but at the same time we were on a budget and couldnt afford to splurge.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights from 12th August 2010.

Location: Flores is an island on a huge lake and the hotel is situated on a front row street so that we had an amazing view of the sunset from the balcony. Definitely make sure you request a balcony, although there is a communal terrace upstairs (but we didnt see this), so you could appreciate the view from there. The hotel is right by one of the small 'boardwalk/jetty' things that are dotted around the lake and when we were there, there were always a bunch of travellers hanging out there, catching the sun and jumping into the lake.
Along the same street as the hotel are loads of lovely and reasonably priced restaurants.

Room: The rooms were fantastic. We stayed in room 204 which was on the 1st floor and was a huge room with 3 double beds, a minibar, TV, desk, shower, a/c and the huge balcony.

Breakfast: Despite there being a menu in the room, we were told that because it was low season, there was no food being served there, but that the sister hotel just round the corner had a restaurant there and also a swimming pool.
There is complimentary tea and coffee downstairs in the lobby.

Price: For the triple room for 2 nights we paid a total of US$116 booked via email- reservaciones@hotelesdepeten.com (www.hotelesdepeten.com)

Tips: When booking, the hotel offers a Tikal trip for US $75 per person. We didnt book with them as we thought we'd see what we could arrange in Flores. We arrived and on the same street as the hotel, there are loads of small tourist offices. We simply went into one of these and booked a Tikal tour for the very next day. We did the one where you get collected from your hotel at 430am. It includes return transportation to the park, an english speaking guide and the entrance fee to the park and cost just 300Quetzals per person (£24 / US$37). The Tikal tour was well worth it- we had a great time!

Overall i would 100% recommend this hotel, and Flores was beautiful- we wished we'd stayed longer than just 2 nights there.
