El Remate is a pretty great place to stay to be close to Tikkal. The hotel was decent, the rooms were clean and had hot water, although they were very basic. What was lacking in this hotel was a bulletin board at the reception, to help with trip planning and reserving private tours, especially for travelers traveling alone or in twos or threes. The dinner specials were good, but the portion sizes seemed more suited for a young child rather than an adult. Breakfasts were okay, but very poor value for money (almost a dollar for a refill on a mediocre cup of coffee!)
Overall I think this isn't a bad place to stay at, but they could do much better by making small changes at their hotel.
