After 3 days of heavy rain I checked out of what could be a 5 star hotel. When you make the long drive up the hill to the resort the initial impression is uh oh what did i book. All gravel and not very pleasing to the eye. However once you enter the Cahal Pech resort it does open up to a nice environment with an open concept area with restaurant, bar, and a 3 tiered pool overlooking one of the best views of the town on top of the hill. On the hillside are several cabanas they rent as well. The staff is very good and welcoming I enjoyed talking with them. It's very strange however the rooms were a big disappointment. It's as if ownership decided to cut costs on the basics in the rooms themselves. The towels were rough like sand paper' the TV s are from the 1980s with only local cable no satellite, and the kicker get ready for this...no shampoo at all is made available. Talk about cheaping out. I asked the front desk for some and they said they don't provide it. Most of the local sites were closed due to heavy rain so i spent more time in the room than I would have liked. There was an envelope in the room for tips to the maid service a little forward i thought perhaps that's all they get. There is a nice gift shop but it was closed the whole time, not even open for an hour. I would drop in for lunch to enjoy the view but would not stay here again.
