“A lovely lake view!”
Reviewed March 2, 2010

Knowing nothing about the area, we chose La Finca because we could be on the lake, but at the same time walk to town. This may be the only hotel on lake where this is really possible. We really enjoyed our time there. Pros: room balcony with great lake view. Lovely grounds. Really nice staff. We had laundry done there - a good job at a low cost. Didn't use spa services so can't comment on them. Cons: price seemed high, but suppose on site spa, pool, etc. may justify it. Room, while large, was devoid of any charm whatsoever, furnished minimally. Kind of like sleeping in a bowling alley. Restaurant (except for outside area) was also charmless and food just so so. Unlike another reviewer, we did a lake tour with the hotel and enjoyed it. Suspect it depends on who your boatman is on given day. I've forgotten the name of ours but he was great, knowledgeable about the area and quite articulate once he realized we knew a little Spanish. Catemaco and surrounding area is great, we're sorry we didn't stay longer to see more of it.

Very nice accomodations. Don't take the lake tour through the hotel. The rooms are comparable to a confort inn. They have this mosquito like creatures called Amoyos. They don't bite, they are just around at night by the thousands. The food was reasonably good. We did the temascal, not my favorite and had a masage in the room. The suronding area is great. Don't miss the Epiyantla falls. We were going to stay 2 days and ended up staying 4 days and din't see all there is to see in the area. You must go to Monte Pio to eat langostinos. Second palapa as you get to the beach where the casco of an old hacienda stands. Delicious!
