With some help from Rosa naturally! Don David got the restaurant with the best views in El Remate! If your not staying there, make sure to stop by in their restaurant , particularly around sunset! And do ask for their American lemonade when there, The real thing, unbeatable! Or have a full meal! Its semi- medium budget for El Remate, but where the whole tourism started. Budget value these days! Don David from Florida knows anything that happens around El Peten! Just ask! He set up the whole El Remate tourism industry, for all other around! A lovely man! As is Rosa! Spent a few years around El Remate I admit! So know the places!
We have stayed at David’s wonderful hotel twice. The staff, rooms, food and park like setting on Lake Peten are outstanding! David is a wealth of information on the area and culture. If you have the opportunity spend some time talking with this fascinating man. He took us on a walking tour of the grounds which is essentially an arboretum. Be sure to order a beverage from the lake side deck which will be delivered by a “mini gondola “. The hotel is conveniently located in El Ramate. Take some time to explore this quaint village. You have easy access to Tikal and the beautiful island city of Flores. This off the beaten path gem is a real bargain!
This was our favorite place in our travels through Guatemala. David, the owner is fabulous. Ask him for his home grown Dragon fruit. The grounds are beautiful and the place is really clean. Also, swimming in the lake adjacent to the fabulous is a true luxury as it feels like bathwater.
Superfriendly staff, they gave us a lot of useful advice. Good food as well. Very nice garden and views over the lake. Best place we have been in Guatemala. Definitely the right choice at El Remate, much closer from Tikal and Yasha than Flores. Mireia & Pablo
We stayed with family one night to visit Tikal. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious. Hot showers and excelent a/c. Best part is the service and the views to the lake from the terrace of garden. Top! Would highly recommend
