We stayed in a Spanish Casita, which was beautiful. We had our own private porch with a gorgeous view. There was always fresh flowers as well, and they decorated our room so pretty every night. It was also very clean.
There is only one option for food when you are not on a tour- the resort. It's not cheap, but worth the price for the three course meal for dinner every night. We ate so much good food!
We definitely recommend taking the free hike the resort offers. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly, and the view is spectacular! We were also some of the first people to swim in the new pool, which is amazing. It's beautiful and so much fun to swim while surrounded by mountains.
We took one tour, and that was to the local Mayan ruins, Cahal Pech. It was fun and informative and we would recommend it.
The one thing that I would say is that the resort is in the middle of nowhere, which is restful and beautiful, but also means there is not much going on at night or if you are not on a tour. I would recommend bringing a good book or two or a couple of games to enjoy.
