The lodge itself is not so great. Although it is located on a beautiful lake, amongst breathtaking nature and minutes from the best Maya site in Central America - it really needs a good change over.
Their restaurant lounge is lovely, a big natural beautiful palapa space. The food is good, the facilities are ok. What is really lacking is the service and more luxurious rooms. The owners themselves are the best tour guides and the most knowledgeable in the entire Biosfera Maya area, and when they provide service it is friendly, fast and great. Unfortunately their staff are really crappy. All of this being said, they have a big commitment to environmental protection and sustainability which for the parts they do, they do really well. Best would be their capacity for education on these topics.
The place is really affordable for what it is and its location. However, the best thing really is the location. Do yourself a favor and call El Sombrero for a tour of Yaxha, and the less known but amazing Topoxte maya site. In fact, pretty much any maya site in and around this area is better with them. If you stay here, you will be treated to the haunting sounds of the Howler Monkeys, one of the best places to hear them day and night. This is an amazing place to watch sunsets with a drink in hand!More
