This guest house was a fun and perfectly adequate place to stay although the rooms are showing their age. But I recommend LCDDD because it did everything well. The staff was super responsive in answering emails before our stay and helping us out with tours of Yaxha and Tikal during our 2 days in El Remate. This is a professional guest house. The food was unexpectedly good. Real good. Everything our group of 6 tried was top shelf, and I am thinking longingly about my piece of guava pie a la mode as I write. Although I recommend skipping dinner one night for the legitimate Italian restaurant Las Orquideas down the street. The hotel grounds show an unexpected attention to detail. Spend some time lounging by the lake, ordering cocktails from the Toucan Express, and touring the grounds to examine the garden and contemplate the Mayan symbolism. The rooms, however, need some work. 10 and 11 are dated. They are clean, but the bed and shower and towels are dingy. Yes, each has a hammock, but I can't recall a more uncomfortable one. But it is beyond the rooms that LCDDD really shines as a great base to relax and to explore the surrounding areas.
