This was a fantastic, beautiful, local hotel, very eco-friendly. It was located in the city, which was a great way to experience the local way of life. The location was great! It was by a very large bus terminal, which meant that we were able to book local bus routes for all the tourist attractions in the area and it... More

This hotel was a culture shock for me having just left the all inclusive Moon Palace. But, WOW, it was an amazing place to stay and we are already looking to go back for the long weekend in September. The breakfast was delicious, the staff was delightful and the setting is amazing! I absolutely LOVED it!!!

The thing that sets this place above is the staff. I showed up after a horrendous flight, a worse taxi ride, cash poor, hungry and tired after traveling for a month through Guatemala.

I chose this hotel based on the Lonely Planet guidebook recommendation and this hotel did not disappoint. I was interested in finding something less touristy and more affordable. This hotel is really special because you feel like you're in a tropical villa even though you are in the city. The location is fantastic because the area is safe to walk... More

It has composting toilets and natural foods. I've stayed in several eco hotels. This one is the first hotel I’ve stayed in that had a bin for compost and recycling in each room! I also appreciated the complimentary drinking water. “Is there an organic restaurant nearby?” I asked them. “Yes, there’s the 100% natural restaurant.” “What’s it called?” “100% Natural.”

Our window was open before we got in, and there were mosquitoes everywhere. The room itself was clean, and I especially liked the shampoo and toiletries. The A/C needed a key to work, so you would always come home to a hot room, but I guess that's part of the "eco-experience" if you're into that. The grounds felt like a... More
