Stayed for 4 nights before heading to the coast. Location at the end of a dirt road, off the grid,
looking down onto the Macal River, very sweet. However the isolation means that you do have to pay to get into town (we didn't have our own transport).
The staff are so attentive and knowledgeable about local flora and fauna, Mayan history and ruins. The tours we did with them were worth the extra $ for individual attention. Dinner meals were special, everyone, guides and guests, eating together at large tables. Since we were there in July it was not very busy and that may have fostered the sense of intimacy.
