“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

The rooms are a bit old but are very clean, the bathroom is also very clean. The rooms have two double beds, both with mosquito nets, all the windows have mosquito wire as well. The owner was very friendly and explained about buses into Belize and also to Tikal. She didn't speak any English but she did talk nice and slowly. Later on her daughter turned up, who spoke English and she translated the bus situation for us just in case we didn't understand. We asked if they had wifi. They didn't really, but they did have a modem wifi dongle which they happily lent to us. There are three of four restaurants with 200 yards as well. If you are looking for a clean room, very friendly owners and a cheap place to stay...this is the place for you. All for only Q100 a night!

In quaint El Remate, we ended up at the Posada Ixchel (not Ixel according to TripAdvisor) since Las Gardenias was full. The staff at Las Gardenias suggested we try this accommodation, a mere three doors down.

Pros
--The family that runs Posada Ixchel is very kind, helpful, and friendly. They live on-site so they are always around.
--You can't beat the rates. We paid $15 USD for two double beds with a private bathroom.
--It's got a great location across the street from the lake and in town (I use "town" loosely). No lake views however.
--The rooms were spacious and featured high ceilings.
--Also, the rooms were set back from the street so vehicle noise wasn't much of a concern. You still can't avoid the roosters though. The atmosphere kind of reminded me of a camp cabin.
--The suicide showers provided hot water.
--There was an adorable resident puppy!
--Intact mosquito nets were hung over the beds, and the window screens were tight and hole-free.
--Private (well, fenced in) patio spaces in front of each room featured plastic tables and chairs.
--We were given the option to have our room cleaned during our stay.
--Towels and soap were provided.

Cons
--The bathroom was visited by a few 6-legged creatures. But this was the jungle, so that was to be expected.
--No one in the family appears to speak English so if you speak zero Spanish, this might not be the place for you.
--The beds weren't exactly the most comfortable in the world. Springy springs to mind.
--No wireless internet.
--Lighting in the room could have been a little stronger...not the best for reading.
--It didn't seem like there was a kitchen for guests to use. Also, there is no restaurant on-site.
--The stone path was a bit slippery when wet (which was nearly all the time due to the sporadic rains).

Posada Ixchel might be more like a 3.5, but I'll round up to 4.
