Gucumatz is fabulous in many ways. The Inn is charming and beautifully decorated with Guatemalan art, some of the art was made by Moya's very talented son. Moya is a wonderful,interesting woman who helped us with whatever we needed. The food was outstanding, Moya is an excellent cook. The location is on the deepest part of lake Peten Itza making it perfect for a daily swim. Its an easy bus or taxi ride into Flores or to Tikal. Gucumatz is located on a quiet part of the lake making it a paradise to unwind from the hustle and bustle of Guatemalan life. The gardens are full of flowers and hummingbirds making it easy to relax in one of the many sitting areas. I will most definitely stay there again.

I stayed here to do some diving in lake Peten' The owner and her crew made us feel at home the whole time there. She was also able to setup with a boat and was very knowledgeable about the area. We had a very successful expedition and plan on returning one day.

From the moment of arrival, this B&B is magical. Moya Stenton is a fabulous host. Her breakfasts and dinners are superb. The trees, flowers, birds, and stunning lakeside panorama are truly relaxing. You’ll be glad you chose the Gucumotz Lakeside Inn!!

I stayed here for 10 days April 2016 for some much needed recovery time. Incredibly peaceful and absolutely beautiful. The lake is pristine and just down the steps, I slept to the waves lapping at the shore. the kayaks on the dock were a nice plus. Moya was so solicitous and I didn't lack for anything. with her advice I arrived from Guatemala City easily without a car - took a bus then taxi. the bus ride was an air conditioned coach (a little chilly, glad of my warm clothes from home) seems that most guests stay one night on their way to somewhere else, they are missing out. the guest house is spacious and inviting, several common areas with chairs and hammocks. there is a surrounding wall and locked gate for privacy, but I had no concerns about safety as a woman traveling alone. A public bus makes the trip between villages on the lake if you'd like to explore, those lucky enough to live on this lake are so hospitable. Waiting as a woman in the village made fresh tortillas to order, I told her that in the US we buy them in packages that are a month old or more, she couldn't believe it. and after tasting hers, I'm a little sad every time I eat an old corn tortilla. This is your perfect temporary home as you enjoy the most beautiful place in the world.
