Villa Maya is a hotel situated about 20 miles from Tikal. It consists of handsome four-unit bungalows with large, airy rooms and a small balconies. The surroundings are jungle and a lagoon with walking paths and lots of signs identifying the flora and fauna. We got a view (and an earful) of two howler monkeys within steps of our room.... More

Fun place to stay that is literally in the jungle. Beautiful surroundings with some resident macaws and deer. Through the night we heard the howler monkeys. The rooms are simple and charming. The dining area and pool are very nice. We had buffet for all meals. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool with drinks from the bar. Lots of paths... More

Great location on the shore of a lake with nature trails around the property. Rooms are in 4 room buildings - basic but comfortable. Food is fresh and local - the fruit is great! At breakfast watch the feeding of the resident crocodile - impressive, and adds an exclamation to the no swimming signs. However there are nice pools and... More

We enjoyed our two nights. On the pro side, the setting and wildlife are wonderful and included deer, countless birds, a croc and a gray fox. Make use of the nature trails and just stand and watch, it will come to you. The front desk people were great and the restaurant bar staff good. We enjoyed the pool area one... More

Very pleasant hotel with views over the lagoon. Rooms in blocks of 6. Our room was large and airy, overlooking the forest with a small balcony. Lots of howler monkeys close by which was lovely. Lovely pool. We thought the food was a bit limited but it was good.

I have a feeling that it is usually very warm here but I really needed a blanket when I stayed here with only a sheet for my warmth. This hotel has a nice pool and grounds but no TV but good Wifi. It is located close to the Tikal ruins and the city of Flores. It is very clean and... More

I wouldn't normally give a property like this a 5/5 rating. It is rustic and a little rough around the edges but I found the proximity to Tikal and the surrounding wildlife to be very redeeming qualities. The food, staff, room quality all leave something to be desired but they are still passable. Average you might say. If location is... More

We stayed at Villa Maya around Christmas 2015. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Love the peaceful environment. Compliments to the chef and the kitchen crew, the "fish in banana leaves" and the tomato soup were fantastic!!! I will most certainly stay in this hotel again. Yes, there is no phone, no TV in the room. If I want... More

This hotel is in a lovely location in the jungle with spacious rooms all carefully watched over by a number of scarlet macaws! The problem is that come the evening there really is no choice but to eat in their restaurant and if you are a vegetarian you must expect to be treated like a complete nuisance and that you... More

We only stayed at this hotel for one night. Rooms were very comfortable with terrace or balcony...also air conditioning and wifi. Good location 10 minute walk from town centre. Friendly staff. The restaurant , however, was expensive compared to local restaurants and lacked atmosphere...which was a shame as the setting was lovely.
