Lodge on Lake Peten Itza
Very pretty place. Do work out on a stair master first if you get the room we had. Lowest room and there were exactly 100 steps to get up to the dining room! We took a break at the pool before heading up the last ones. Good practice for climbing up those temples at Tikal LOL. Good service for the most part by the employees. The desk helped us with some reservations elsewhere. Only disappointment we had with it is noted below. Food was okay, better than many places we stayed but not as good as others. Meat was a little tough and things seemed to be over salted. Rooms clean and pretty. Candles in the evening in our room were a nice touch. Our porch roof leaked so we couldn't sit out there the night we got there because it was raining. I understand they ripped the roof off of our room the day we left.
They ran out of the beer we were all drinking and for some reason couldn't get more even though we hopped in our car and bought a case of it just down the road. They probably couldn't get it as cheaply as they could through their main purchase point for supplies and felt that keeping the guests happy wasn't as important as saving a couple of bucks.
The rooms are built as duplexes. We were traveling with another couple and requested one whole duplex. It didn't happen. We had made the reservations 3 mos ahead of time and had confirmation that we would be sharing one. They had been doing a lot of work on the grounds and it was paying off. Everything was very pretty and super clean. Interesting shell phone to call the main desk from your room with.
One of Francis Ford Coppola's places.
