We stayed at Casa de Don David for 4 days and nights end of May/first of June 2010 and really enjoyed it. I recommend it for those who want several days in the Tikal area. The helpful staff are English-speaking and very helpful. The setting is on the edge of Lake Peten in the village of El Remate. There are a few small restaurants and a few places to get souvenirs and local fare. The closest ATM is a 20 or 30-minute bus ride away. Casa can arrange transportation to and from the ruins, bus or private tours, airport and other transfers. Their restaurant serves good, no-frills, basic choices in an open-air facility . We were quite overwhelmed by the heat and humidity so the A/C in our room was quite soothing. They provide water bottles and free purified refills, and promote conservation. They have free internet service.
