We initially had booked into another hotel in Flores but 'cut our losses' and left as it wasn't very nice. We found Hotel Casona del Lago online and booked it straight away as it was lovely. The room was very clean and very comfortable (despite not having a mini fridge for keeping drinks cold).
The staff were lovely and very helpful.
Noise - on one of our two nights there was a family next door with what sounded like 50 children because of the noise they were making but this only lasted an hour or so.
Food - breakfast was included (at the usual Central American snail's pace) but different items were charged for. For example: I ordered bacon, eggs and toast but my 'included breakfast' only covered me for the eggs and I had to pay for the rest (as they were listed seperately on the menu) which is a bit tight. Also, my partner ordered Eggs Florentine one morning and they really should look these things up before they put them on the menu as they obviously have no idea what Egs Florentine should be. The next morning he ordered French toast and got connamon toast instead.
On the whole:
hotel and room lovely - restaurant needs work.
