For what you pay roughly $50 a night it is a great hotel for people not looking for a 5 star treatment. However, for non-Spanish speakers it is recommended you learn some basics first as many of the staff speak very little English. If you are planning a trip to Tikkal (the Mayan Ruins) I suggest you go for a smaller tour company especially if you plan to get there early to see the sun rise. Most people use San Juan Tours (very popular) but by the time they picked up everybody in the huge coach half of the morning is over. Also, we paid for an English speaking guide but when we got there the guide didn't show ! Walking around Tikkal without a guide is pretty useless as there are so much history and finer details to be learned than what the tour books cover.
