After landing in Flores it was a very short taxi ride to the boat which was awaiting us. It took approximately 15mins across the lake to get to the hotel which was beautiful. A lovely open sided restaurant with a lovely view looking out over the lake. The rooms are like chalets dotted around the property and they offer a buggy ride if you do not want to walk. I think some of the rooms have short but steep inclines to them. The staff are very friendly and helpful. All our tours were pre booked and the boat was always there ready to take us across the lake. Very smart comfy boats, the hotel has two boats. Highly recommend

Beautiful rooms , beautiful setting. One with nature in a quiet setting over looking lake petan itza. The hotel provides boat service to isla flores. However the times are very inconvenient which forces one to pay for transfers which is 25 dollars rountrip. AMD one canr just purchase a one way. I think the hotel should provide more frequent service to Isla flores free of charge. I would suggest not eating at the hotel restaurant. Nor only expensive compare to others in town...the worst is lack of taste and over cooked food. It is by far the worst meal o had in Guatemala.

I'm sure I wrote a more ample review of this unique lakeside hotel but I don't see it up. This is a wonderful place, with great meals right on the property. The hosts speak good English (though not always the waiters). It climbs up the hillside into the jungle in layers & zig-zag roads. If you don't want to enjoy the scenery with a walk, you can be transported in a golf cart. People often stop here as the last stop or even home base for touring the magnificent Tikal ruins, and that's a good choice, but let me state clearly here that the Bolontiku is a fine choice as an end in itself. They will pick you up in on the Isle of Flores by motor craft for a short hop across the beautiful lake. We took groceries and alcohol for their rooms are big with huge soft beds, great fridges and, best of all, tiled showers. All tours can be booked from there, as well. It is well managed by professionals, & everything is clean, up to date, and ready. They even have a fine collection of Mayan tools and jewellry discovered when they cleared the land. My lady and I hiked all over the property, which covers a huge area of jungle. I met a female howler monkey right outside my door (they phoned me to let me know it was there). We also hiked in the hot sun all the way to the steeply hilled town of San Andrés next door, but I admit we took a cheap chit chit back. We had the best time of any hotel we've stayed in the south since we began travelling. I give this establishment my highest recommendation!

Wow! What a beautiful place with beautiful people. On arrival in Flores we were met by the hotel boat which took us on a short and scenic journey, across the lake to the hotel. We were greeted with chilled Hibiscus juice and cold towels. Our room (No. 3) was perfect with a balcony that overlooked the lake and a wonderful place to watch the sunrise. Dinner was good with panoramic views. We would happily stay here again.
