Hotel Gringo Perdido
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in El Remate
Reviewed January 25, 2009

Hotel Gringo Perdido is a nice, natural, hidden lodging near El Remate, between Flores and Tikal. It's nice to be away from the more compact Flores but overpriced Tikal. Gringo Perdido is naturally gorgeous - we had our own private dock with hammocks on the lake. The food was good though it was international fare so it wasn't quite typical Guatemalan food if you crave local fare. But it was good and included in the price.

Perhaps the only negative of staying there was that there weren't many staff around to assist with arrangements or even to talk to. The staff were very nice but knew absolutely no English and if you're Spanish isn't good it can be a struggle to communicate. Based on the website and prior correspondence, I was under the impression there would be more staff to help arrange transportation and what not. Also, the website makes it appear as though a lot of people stay there and they do indeed have a lot of space. But, for two nights there were only 4 of us and the last night it was just myself and my husband. While the solitude was GREAT, at times you almost wished there were a few other people around. So I wouldn't make it a complaint, just different. It's also about a 35 minute walk to the town, El Remate, so you really are on your own here. They have two dogs that act as watch dogs and friendly companions while you stay there.

At night the stars are bright, wildlife comes alive, and it's a serene experience. So if you like peace and quiet and natural surroundings, this is a great place. I would recommend it for anyone like this type of experience.
