Set on a hillside on the outskirts of town, the resort has wonderful view of San Ignacio and is just a stone’s throw from the Cahal Pech ruins. Accommodations can be had either in the main building or in one of the thatch-roof individual cabanas, and while we prefer the latter (love their screened in porches), they do require a bit of tramping up and down that hill. The rooms in the main building also have larger bathrooms, though some are in need of renovation (so ask to be moved in the furnishings seem a bit old). That being said, all accommodations are clean, spacious, and feature carved Mayan wall hangings and colorful Guatemalan bedspreads. There’s a large, open-air restaurant on the second floor of the main building, where guests gather for meals and to trade travel tales, and a two-tiered midsize outdoor pool set on a high spot near the main building with a great view over the town and valley. Service is unusually caring and professional here.A pterodactyl statue overlooks the pool—we have no idea why.
