La Casa de Don David is a charming base from which we explored the parks at Tikal and Yaxha. My sister and I and another friend stayed there in January 2011 and we knew we would return one day. In March of this year my sister and I were most delighted to be able to show my husband what a little gem it is. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The grounds are lovely. We were very fortunate to have the owner, David, spend some time with us telling us about the plants in his extensive garden, which is graced by the focal point of a huge ceiba tree. The light display at night is beautiful, and on our first evening there we were lucky to enjoy the sight of bonfires on the grounds as an added attraction. La Casa de Don David is excellent value, you have the choice of having breakfast or your evening meal included in the very affordable price of your room. The food is delicious and Rosie's mixed drinks are legendary. Kelsey, Yohana and other staff members are most attentive, they arranged our transport to and from the airport and were very helpful with suggestions for knowledgeable guides for the attractions in the area.
After a busy day out, it was delightful to sit on the new elevated observation deck to enjoy the lake view. We did this during the day and also at night, a most pleasant experience. The Toucan Express zip line on the deck is available to serve drinks as required. What more could a body desire? I would not hesitate to recommend la Casa de Don David as a most peaceful and relaxing place to stay when visiting this area. You will not be disappointed.
