Keep in mind that you have to pay per day to get into the park.
It's 150q per person per day. To be honest, you really only need
one solid day in Tikal, but if you do space it out, be ready to buy a
ticket for each day.
Each ticket is valid from 6am-6pm. If you want to do a sunrise tour, the hotel might not let you know that it's an extra 100Q to get into the park before 6am. The sunrise tour starts at 4am.
The rooms don't have air conditioning, which is fine as long as there's a ceiling fan. But keep in mind that you're in the lowland jungle, so it can get really hot and humid, depending on the season. We went in May, which was 90-degree (F) days and crazy humidity, which was rather miserable. Since this hotel doesn't have a swimming pool, I just took frequent showers to cool off.
Remember that you're in the jungle. Spiders, roaches, mosquitoes, etc. will sometimes get in your room. Bring bug spray, and be sure not to keep food trash in your room overnight.
The location is fantastic. You're a 5 minute walk from the
We also appreciated the free wifi. It's available only in the lobby (and our room was close enough to pick up a very weak signal with a strong antenna), and it's only really good for basic bandwidth (checking email, etc.). Since it's a satellite connection, expect blackouts from time to time due to cloud coverage, and slow bandwidth (3mbps down, 1mbps up [if that]). So long story short, don't expect to be quickly uploading photos or watching videos, but it's nice to have in order to be connected to the world :).
They had power throughout the day and night, thanks to the facility being battery powered when they're off the grid. They'd ask you not to use the outlets during the battery-power times (which was 12pm-6pm and 9pm-7am). But it was nice to have electricity to charge phones and whatnot whenever we needed.
We stayed in the bungalow with a king-sized bed. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was simple (bed, two chest of drawers, a ceiling fan, and a small desk [no chair]). There was a sink and the bathroom consisted of the toilet and the shower.
The shower surprisingly delivered hot water whenever we used it, which was great.
The restaurant was decent. We're vegetarians, so it limited our options greatly, but their vegetarian options were okay (basically two pastas and roasted vegetables). For meat eaters, there were a lot more options (chicken/pork/beef sandwiches, entrees with rice and pasta, and more). One nice thing was they were okay with breakfast at any time of the day and night, so I had breakfast for dinner.
