I loved the relaxed atmosphere of the hotel compound. The jungle setting is gorgeous with a reasonable drive to visit Tikal. The rooms were basic but nice, very spacious with a small balcony overlooking the lake. The restaurant's food and service were good. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Guatemala is a beautiful country, and one place is beautiful....until you see another. This is how I felt when staying at Villa Maya. The surroundings are tranquil and very green (my favorite color!) The breakfast and dinners were well prepared, varied and quite delicious! I loved my little room, which is more like a shared cabin on the river. Nice walking trails everywhere. Would stay here again....close to Tikal National Park.

The Hotel is located about 1 hour and 15 minutes from Tikal. It has a lovely setting on a lake. The room was basic. The bed was adequate. The shower didn't drain well. The room was clean. The meals were good. I would stay here again.

Hotel is isolated infront of a nice lake and surrounded by nature, even by alligators! Food is good, good service!

About the rooms...they are basic, no TV, bed matress a little bit too hard, really good shower! internet free connection from rooms! Very clean.

Overall I will recommend the hotel, its worth what you pay for it...

We stayed at Villa Maya as part of a Caravan tour. The rooms are in bungalows, four rooms to each building, two up, two down. We had a first floor room but even that had a balcony that overlooks a beautiful ecological area. The room was spacious, clean, and air-conditioned. The buffet wasn't as extensive as some of the other hotels where we stayed on the tour, but the food was consistently good.

We didn't get to spend as much time on the property as we would have liked. We took a short walk on one of the paths, but we'd returned from Tikal late in the afternoon and it was already getting dark so we didn't venture too far. We used the pool in the evening, very nice, and the water was warm. There's a separate, shallow pool.

Villa Maya made an error and had us at their hotel in Antigua instead of Flores, even though our written reservation was correct. They worked with us to stay in another hotel the first night (Peten Esplindio) and then they found room for us at Villa Maya. Villa Mayan has beautiful grounds. We enjoyed the view of the lagoon and the colorful Macaws. The room was nicely decorated and I had WiFi in the room. What I did not like was the open concept shower. No privacy at all because the "door" was wooden spindels!

Stayed at Villa Maya as part of a Caravan Tour. The hotel/resort was even better in person than in the pictures. Things to enjoy about Villa Maya are:

1. Delicious food in the restaurant, at least for what was served for the tour groups.
2. Great pool. The water was warm all night long, and the waterfall and Big Chair added to the fun of the pool scene.
3. Each room had a beautiful balcony, overlooking the adjacent lake.
4. The rooms were in bungalow type buildings, with four rooms each. That gave it a real remote/resort type feel.

I would recommend Villa Maya to anyone visiting Tikal and Northern Guatemala.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor of each bungalow have even better views of the nearby lake.
