“Good location but woudn't recommend it...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Right on the water. It's got a pool and a jacuzzi. The staff doesn't speak much English but are very nice. Didn't sleep well because people were drinking and carrying on right outside my room and had to go out at 1 AM and tell them to keep it down, I had to get up at 6 to catch a plane. OK, but not great. Did love looking at the lake though and there's a cute little restaurant next door with great chicken tacos and guacomole!

Room Tip: as far away from the pool as possible unless you like to party...

This hotel by the lake has fabulous views and a great pool. Yes the wifi only works near the reception area and the rooms are basic. But it's quite cheap and well located. Water refills are free but you do need to ask at the reception. Slept really well despite basic rooms. The rooms are kept clean and the shower I had was hot. Enjoyed two nights here

Room Tip: Choose a 3rd floor room for quietness, however no lift so you have to carry your luggage upstairs.

stayed here after Hotel China House in Caye Caulker then Hotel Iguana in San Ignacio, Belize, on a Tucan tour Cancun to Antigua (Guatemala). Both were good but China House has NO elevator. On/off wifi by pool, little crabs walking around, iffy breakfast. Caye Caulker is small. I would not recommend walking alone after dark. We went to a bonfire put on by Jerry & Vito of Ragamuffin tours, with whom we did a snorkeling/catamaran trip which was awesome and swam with whale sharks and had a great fish lunch! Hotel Iguana had a great pool, but a hot 30 min walk from town. You do get to cross over the river, which is a lovely refreshing swim but watch the current.
Sabana has no elevator either, so noisy dragging suitcases up and down the stairs. wifi in lobby, slow little restaurant, rooms small but nice little balcony overlooking the town and laundry across street. Flores quite nice to walk around. The hotel outside of Tikal ruins (can't recall the name) has a stunning pool, great restaurant and dock to the lake to swim in Lake Peten. It's a lovely area.

I was excited to treat myself and spend a little bit more once I got to Flores. I was excited about having wifi and a pool. When I arrived there was only wifi in the reception area, not in my room and not in any of the spaces facing the water. What a disappointment, I wanted to work with a view and could not, When I complained about this the staff couldn't care less.
I asked for a wake up call at 2:30 am to see the Tikal ruins at sunset. They said no problem and I watched them write it down and stick the note on the desk. I NEVER got the call. The guy laughed and said sorry as though it were no big deal! I could have missed the tour and lost out on that money.
I would never stay here again and advise against to any one. The staff was not friendly or helpful. They advertise WIFI when they do not have it. The pool and view were nice, though I do not think the pool was kept up. There are several better and cheaper hotels all around Flores.

Situated close to the water. Rooms were spacious and not too bad. Hot water was intermittent at best. There was mention of happy hour at the bar downstairs but when we asked it seemed as though it didnt exist. Pool was nice. Staff were average.

I haven't seen any other hotels in Flores but this is the most overpriced place ($45 a night for a double) we've stayed in Central America. I guess the old friendly staff left. Rooms are definitely basic with old pillows and mattresses and our room with a lake view had no wifi. Location on the water is nice but every other hotel here is also on the water.

Room Tip: Only the rooms closest to the lobby have wifi.

Rooms are basic and not too attractive, but has AC, fan, TV, hot water and towels.
We had pretty small room with no window, and it felt mossy when we turned the AC on.
The pool is great, and the view over the lake is beautiful. Location is great as well.
