We loved this hotel and the town of El Remate. A much nicer location to spend a couple of days in than Flores. Woodwork in this town is amazing, higher quality and more reasonable than anywhere else.
The hosts at this hotel were perfect. Food is amazing. The trip to Tikal was breathtaking (do the 6am tour - we were there alone for at least 1 hour - but make sure you catch your 12pm bus back or you will be fleeced by other bus drivers pretending to take you back for free). Be careful going to temple VI (only go in a group).
Swim in the lake and take in the beauty and culture of this town. it is idyllic!!
My husband and father went on the canopy tour to Ixpanajul (excuse spelling) - they had a brill time and did also fdid the sky walkways. It is better to pay for tours in local currency than USD (you can change the USD at the hotel)
*****Beware if you are going from Flores to Belize City. We got the Linea Dorada bus that should take you direct and got thrown off at the Guatemalan border as buses are not allowed to do drop offs in Belize from Guatemala! It was dead easy to get from the border on public transport ($8 to belize City) but it is just better to just use public transport from the start.********
