This is a fantastic place in El Remate, which is about equidistant between Flores (where the airport is) and Tikal (where the Mayan temples are. It's worth staying closer to Tikal in order to get there early in morning - the trip from Casa Don David to Tikal is about 30 minutes and they can help you with all the logistics.
The restaurant is great, with good views over the lake. The grounds of the hotel are extensive and nice to stroll in and there's a good open room full of hammocks to relax in.
El Remate as a town doesn't have too much to offer, but it's as good or better than Flores.
