“Wonderful 2-night stay!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

My stay at Hotel Peten was fantastic, due mostly to the incredibly courteous staff at the hotel. From check-in to departure, everyone was kind and extremely helpful. My room had a great balcony looking out onto the lake and noise was never a problem during the nights. Hot water was HOT and the one meal I had at the hotel was enjoyable, though sadly I was the only person eating at the hotel. If you're in the Flores area, definitely also search our Sergio Crasborn as his tour services are incredible and I utilized him for both a tour to Yaxhá and a lake tour. Very kind

This is in Santa Elena, not Flores. The rooms were the smallest we had had on our tour of Central America and were showing signs of wear & tear. Views from our room of Lago Peten Itza, the lagoon of Flores. Swimming Pool. Had good 05.30 breakfast before visit to Tikal- this is a vast tricky and dangerous site particularly after heavy rain which makes the chalky soil extremely slippery. Although the hotel is situated on a very busy road traffic noise is not a problem. Many rooms have lakefront outlook.

Room Tip: Try to get room with lakefront view.

Great location in the middle of town and right on the waterfront. My bf and I had a room w 3 double beds- excessive but incredibly comfortable and roomy. Good beds, tv, v clean, great bathroom w good pressure and hot water. Oh and our own water view balcony!
On arrival we received complimentary juice and on our beds were really cute animal towels for something different.
Cold and refreshing indoor pool or can jump off the jetty across the road. Nice outside area facing the water where my friends and I had drinks.
Clean, great staff and comfortable. I recommend!

Room Tip: Choose a room w a balcony- maybe check a couple out first!

This is the kind of hotel that helps you with everything, if you need a tour they will arrange it for you, if you need food they will cook you no matter the time, if you need a taxi they will find you for you even if you need a shoe they will bring it to you... LOL... I have stayed in this hotel more than 4 times and it is always great to stay with them, they have different rooms (single, double and triple) with nice beds and pillows, air condition, hot shower and really clean, also if you stay in the balcony rooms you will have a great view of the lake. The hotel is located in "30 de Junio" Street and since the island is kind of small, you wont have problems to find it... The price include a delicious traditional breakfast... If you are going to Tikal (National Mayan Park) we sure to use their transportation since it will be cheaper than taking a cap or a private tour... the service is great, nice located, clean, nice food... what else can you ask for a hotel in Peten??? :)

Room Tip: Pick the rooms with balcony!!!!

A lovely weekend in the Flores/Tikal area. The hotel got great and spacious rooms. Some rooms have 3 double sized beds, so they can easily accomodate 3 persons. Air conditioning. Clean, nice bathroom with hot shower. Very centrally located in the picturesque island town of Flores. Great lake views. And the breakfast was delicious. When I left the hotel and flew back to Guatemala City, I left my camera battery charger (and the battery itself) at the room. They managed to call me, ship the charger and the battery to Guatemala City (at their cost) and then, they managed to deliver it to my office. So I have only great things to say about the hotel and its lovely staff.

Room Tip: The rooms at the higher floors have nicer lake views.

Stayed up in a triple room on the third floor. Very spacious with nice views, clean, and comfortable beds. However...the reviewer who was locked out of the hotel is DEAD ON correct as it happened AGAIN this time to us! We left the hotel around 8:30 to do some shopping and on the way out chatted with the young woman at the front desk. All the restaurants and bars were still going when we decided to head back around 11PM to a dark and LOCKED hotel in the front and back. Long and hard banging on doors and doorbells achieved nothing until we walked down the street to the sister hotel Casona del Lago to get assistance. The gentleman behind the desk was friendly but assured us this could not have happened. Sure I walked back to the Casona del Lago just to play a joke! Well, the night guy at Hotel Peten showed up sure enough when we walked back with the manager of Casona del Lago. I am concerned that this has clearly happened more than once. Should an emergency happen in the middle of the night where are the staff? Meanwhile, it should be noted that a simple sign at the front desk or having desk staff tell clients of this practice would be the minimum that should be done.

Room Tip: Third floor triple rooms overlooking the lake seem to be your best bet to get comfort, space, and qu...

Stayed at hotel Peten about 20 times in the last 6 months. Rooms are nice and spacious, almost all the rooms have a view on the beautiful lake. Some bathrooms are not renewed but still ok. Staff is helpfull and friendly.
Downside is the bar in front of the hotel with loud music during the evening-night.
