Hotel Sun Breeze has lost some of its former appeal, through no fault of its owners. The owner of the land between the Sun Breeze and the lake has built a monstrous structure of indeterminate purpose, and the Sun Breeze’s owners built a wall against the increased traffic. So instead of a gorgeous sunset view out the window, you get a brick wall. Also, the nearby pier, which used to be the happy scene of frolicking kids, now has a fat water pipe running down its length.
The Sun Breeze retains its convenient location at the junction of the road to Cerro Cahui, with shops and restaurants nearby. The rooms are down and behind the entrance, insulating them from street noise.
The rooms are clean and bright. I stayed in a large room with two double beds, screened windows on two walls, overhead fan, and a porch with table, chairs, and hammock (away from the brick wall). No hooks or hangers for clothes. Temperamental electric shower was usually cold. Because I stayed for five days, I paid Q60 (U$8) a night. A great deal in this tranquil and beautiful base for travel to Tikal, Yaxha, Belize, or Palenque.
