“Comfortable enough”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

It wasn't amazing but it was not the best budget accommodation I have stayed in. The place needs a bit of a revamp and the rooms need an upgrade. All a bit outdated but if you at Flores to explore the sights then you will manage just fine. We had a good party at Los Amigos but they don't have AC so I would be hesitant to go there.

Smiley staff, basic rooms with a balcony (you need to ask for one) good view of the lake, ok bathroom (although ours smelt a bit funky from time to time), cable tv amd that's it....what more do you need? We checked out about ten places to stay on the island and If you wanted a lake view you had to pay a lot, lot more than here. Ok I'm sure the rooms were a bit more polished but this place is a bargain.

Only tiny grumble is that wifi signal is really poor but available with enough pacing and patience.

We loved it. The location is fantastic, right on the lake, and they have a very nice balcony.
Room was not fancy, no amenities whatsoever, but it was clean and very quiet.
We spent three nice days and we loved it.
The staff was very friendly, especially an older lady who had the sweetest smile :).

We stayed in Villa del Lago for one night on a recent mission trip to the Peten in February. Our rooms were clean and had good views near the terrace overlooking the lake. The a/c worked good and the showers had hot water which was appreciated. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Carol at Finca Ixobel had stayed at Villa del Lago recently and recommended it to us. It worked out good for us.

We stayed at this hotel for a night before our Tikal tour and had a great sleep. Bed was comfortable, room was clean, a/c worked great and the two meals we ate there were good. They set us up to eat out on the sunny patio, very nice. I feel this is a very good value for your money, and I would stay there again.

We arrived in Flores after a long motorcycle trip from Belize with no reservations anywhere.

We parked the bikes and walked around the island looking for a room. It was New Years Eve and the island was very full. This hotel had a room available, would allow us to park the bike in the lobby and were friendly.

I was a little concerned about the reviews I was reading on here, but we kind of had no choice, so we went for it.

We ended up staying 3 nights, and it was fine.

Yes, there were tiny sugar ants in the room, but having lived myself in the tropics for many years I know that it is just a part of life in this part of the world. No big deal.

The view over the lake was nice, the shower was hot and clean, the fan and A/C worked fine and we slept like babies.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, or to stay here again myself.

The hotel was directly across from the Retpsa tour company we used. We got a balcony room overlooking the lake, the rooms were clean with a fan, tv and (most importantly!) hot showers. They have a restaurant below with good food and service. The bed was comfortable and the staff friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room. They are only 2-3 dollars more and the view is spectacular especially when t...
