8/10 Very good

Incredible Spot
I love this little spot nestled away in the jungle of Guatemala overlooking Lake Peten. It was quiet and peaceful and everything I needed to relax.

The resort creates a wonderful first impression: incredibly lush and peaceful grounds, with 11 casitas scattered throughout the property to maximize privacy and solitude. The welcome cocktail of hibiscus juice and rum was refreshingly delicious. I had seen the photos online and in various reviews, but it still took my breath away with its panoramic vista over Lake Petén. We had a good sized living room, a powder room and a full bath, and a comfortably appointed bedroom. I would describe the overall style as “rustic indigenous luxury.” The furniture appeared to be handmade, exuberant textiles adorned the bed and walls. Fresh flowers, in vases and placed on the bed and towels, adorned all four rooms. There are no televisions in the casitas (we didn’t miss it at all). There was a minibar stocked with a variety of Coppola wines and other beverages, a coffee station, and a jar of the most delicious cookies (a blend of cocoa and some kind of ground chestnut). The toiletries also seemed to be locally made/sourced, and the soaps had a beautiful scent (eucalyptus and some kind of mint, perhaps?). The woven hammock on the terrace was the most comfortable in which I’ve ever lain. Service was attentive throughout our stay. I thought our trip to La Lancha might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but everything about it was so exceptional—the accommodations, the service, the food, the views—that we will definitely return, and for a little longer stay!

Paradise at La Lancha In el Remate
From start to finish, the stay and service at this charming property was extraordinary!! From first contact with the staff prior to arrival to the personable greetings from all upon arrival made for a memorable experience. I too am in the hospitality industry and I know exceptional service and genuine customer care and we couldn’t have been more pleased with both service and accommodations. We were in residence for three nights and each days was even better than the last. We had a jungle facing room and thoroughly enjoyed the sounds of nature as well as the aesthetics of the jungle itself. Lounging on the deck was dreamy. From the funicular that gently moved us from the hotel to the beautiful Peten Itza lake front with all possible amenities at your disposal, to the ceremonial steam room to the deck to the canoes and paddle boards and motor boat all at your disposal. We were only able to enjoy breakfast and dinner but each day the selections were delectable and the service attentive but not intrusive. I would like to thank the GM Noe for the personal greeting on our first night as well as the hand written note left in our suite. Also enjoyed the hand written note from the Room Attendant and the wonderful care that we were shown in her daily service. I wholeheartedly recommend this property for a beautiful getaway in Guatemala or as a base for adventures in Tikal!! Also all of the hotel guests that we met were lovely as well.
