Maya and Willy do a wonderful job. We would have stayed longer if we could have. El Remate is quiet and away from the noise of Flores. A great choice for families. It was a wonderful place to stay and the food was excellent.

We planned two days but stayed longer because Posada Del rooms, staff, and grounds were amazing. We rented a car and drove in from Belize to see Tikal at our own pace, a good decision, despite the 4-5 hour drive and including the hourlong border experience. However the Posada Del was the main attraction rivaling Tikal. First the rooms were...

A calm, cosy lodge in beautiful surroundings. Excellent swimming in the lake (though a small pier might make it even better). Helpful staff making the stay even better. The not to be missed ruins of Tikal are less than an our hour away. Recommended!

I would highly recommend staying here. Reconsider if you really need to stay in Flores as Willy can organise trips and transport for you easily. Rooms are beautiful, we had a stunning view of the lake. Dinner was delicious! Overall an excellent location!
