Our private room is spacious and clean. We love our hammock in front of the room with the gorgeous backdrop view. The hot water works well. The WiFi is only available in the restaurant and the speed was average. The food is good and the staffs are friendly.

Loved that place! Near the river. Staff are very nice, every night there's an all you can eat buffet for 50Q. All around it's super relaxing, they organise tours to Semuc and all the guests there are always super friendly. Very recommended

After a long trip by bus, we arrived at this incredible place. Well isolated from the town, it feels like you're sleeping in the jungle, you can like or not. Someone from the hotel came to pick us up as soon as we arrived at lanquin. We got the private room with the private bathroom and it was a really...

The food at this place was freaking amazing and the surroundings are beautiful and it's affordable. I would have given this place 5 stars had it not been for the fact that even though every single guest was in bed the bar staff decided to blast music all night long keeping everyone awake. Initially, I thought everyone was partying until...

Hi Mirey Thank you very much for your comment. We re happy you liked your stay here and we are very sorry for the music issue.

Definitely stay here if you're in Lanquin! Beautiful place by the river with nice rooms and a cozy bar/restaurant and lounging area. The dinner buffet is amazing, so much tasty food at a decent price. The staff is super friendly and helpful with arranging their tours or booking shuttles that pick you up right at the hostel!

We had a fantastic stay here and would highly recommend this place to travellers that don't need fancy accomodation. A beautiful place right on the river, good food, very friendly staff, live music at night and plenty of activities and tours to choose from. My only regret is not staying longer. The rooms were basic but also very affordable. All...

We were surprised by what we got for the price we payed. We stayed in a cabaña with shared bathroom, overlooking the valley and river below. Lanquin town was only a 10min stroll away. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, the showers were hot and there was good wifi in the restaurant. They also have a sauna. We did the Semuc...

We ate dinner one night and had drinks here a second. Checked out the rooms, but none were available--even so, they do laundry on site and we're happy to do some for us with 4 hour turn around. A lot of staff is Irish. Very lively place--we'd come here next time. People who we spoke to at dinner loved it.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights when visiting Semuc Champey. It is a great place to stay. We had a double room with shared bathroom- it was fine except a bit dirty floor (was kind of muddy there during that time because of rain, and the floor was not cleaned when we arrived). The huge plus for...
