Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

WARNING FOR DOG OWNERS! Don't stay here. There is poisoned dog food around. Not kidding. Our dog got killed. Very sad . We found also other dog body. This place is like horror movie. STAY AWAY! There is a campground and I don't understand how they can be dog friendly when they actually kill dogs. When I claim to the receptinist obviously surprise but they should take care that those things don't happen to their visitors.

My family and miself spent three night camping at Tziscao Ecolodge. This is a small business run by locals. So, do not expect a first class place. Everything was fine, but you may need to secure some equipment and arrangements before you go to Tziscao. Even in Eastern time, winds are strong and chilling at night. Make sure carrying sleeping bags. We carry a gas stove to cook. The staff borrowed us a timber table for having our meals. We also carry our folding chairs. Toilets and showers are near at the lodge. There is a restaurant where the three meals can be bought. They are tipical mexican food, good prices. Do not expect sophisticated couise. If you prefer to carry your food, do the shoping in Comitan city, one hour before on the road. During the day, the weather is perfec for a walking around, visiting treking trails or swiming in the lake. At nigh, make a fire, enjoy the calm and the stars. One think necessary for the camping people is a lavatory to wash the food and dishes. Definitively I will go back!

This hotel is part of a really solid community-run tourism project, so go for it! The people living on the ejido (communal land) around the Lagunas de Montebello take turns working for the tourism project: the profits go to the community and the guides, raft paddlers and checkpoint guards etc get a set daily wage. This already makes it worthwhile. In terms of tourist enjoyment, we rented two cabins on the lakeshore for the weekend and had a good time. Each cabin has three queensize beds so we had five people sleeping in one, no problem. The cabins are a bit damp so probably not so good for people with asthma or who are sensitive to mildew, but that's about the only downside. You should tell the manager what time you want to shower so they can turn on the boilers in advance and get you hot water. We also asked for firewood for a bonfire outside (50 pesos extra) - it's also good to do this in advance so they can organise themselves around cooking dinner. NB: the hotel has a no dogs rule. The dinner menu doesn't look that special but everything we ordered was delicious, especially the fried snapper but the vegetarian burritos and soup as well. The village Tziscao has a no-alcohol rule but we had brought our own wine and that was OK. The evening had been miserable with thick fog and thin rain, but the sun broke through the next morning and provided a spectacle of the mist slowly evaporating off the lake and revealing the view. The hotel management organised a guide (Spanish-speaking, from the village) for us for the next day's excursions around the lakes. We had our own cars and toured the lakes on a serendipitously sunny day. The Cinco Lagos was best of all! A tour around the lake on a balsa raft (you can help the dude paddle if you want exercise), a walk up a hill with a lecture on useful herbs and plants, and swimming off the raft. These lakes are incredibly deep and clean and the community makes sure the environment is protected. This makes swimming quite a heady experience - the water totally clear and COLD so when you dive you can see the raft above you, and closer to the shores you see the vegetation clearly through the water. Fantastic for as long as you can handle the chill. Our raft man invited us to the village party that night which was 'an experience'. The next day we rented kayaks at Hotel EcoTziscao and went for a pre-breakfast paddle and swim around Lago Tziscao: another highlight. Lago Tziscao flooded on New Year's Day 2015 and when we went (Feb 2015) the water was still high: a surreal landscape with the playground swings, lakeside picnic tables and a few cabins at the neighbouring hotel a meter under water. Although this is bad news for the village it made for memorable kayaking: we went to peer into the top floors of flooded cabins and paddled into the playground from the lake, after taking a look at the opposite shore and some islands, and swimming some more. The hotel didn't have proper kayak paddles which peeved us off at first (the paddles were lent to another project) and we only had a little raft paddle per kayak, but this proved sufficient to get us around at a good clip. Gave us an excellent appetite for breakfast at the neighbouring hotel and a good base for checking out the archaeological site Chinkultik later. In sum: spend as much time as possible on the water (or hiking around the lakes would probably also be great); bring warm clothes as well as swimming trunks and flipflops for the raft; hope for a sunny day; support the ejido's community tourism.

We booked a couple of nights in a cabin at Ecolodge and Villas Tziscao. The location is beautiful, the cabin we rented was good and clean apart from one of our towels and the breakfast and dinner they offer in the restaurant is ok. What this place lacks is good service and a more ecological thinking. There is trash in the surroundings of the hotel since there isn't enough trash cans. There isn't much information of what to do in the area, we had to find out that ourselves. The restaurant offer standard food encountered in a regular mexican cantina but no organic food, no fresh fruitand salads or specialities from the region If you're looking for cheap accomodation near the lakes this is a good alternative but don't believe it's very Eco...

Tziscao is the largest of the 59 Lakes of Montebello: a cobalt-blue expanse of cool water, interspersed with islands, rocky peninsulas and coves, surrounded by pristine wooded hills and limestone outcroppings. The Centro Ecoturístico Tziscao, run by the ejido (communal land holders), boasts 6025 hectares of virgin forest, full of orchids and bromelias, and dozens of lakes and cenotes, some easily accessible by car, others hidden next to jungle paths. The Centro includes the Villas Tziscao, as well as places to rent kayaks on 4 of the lakes and small restaurants featuring the local organic coffee and fresh corn quesadillas. Experienced guides are available to take adventurous tourists on treks to the hidden cenotes or to see the Mayan bas-reliefs on a rock face. Less strenous activities could include a 30 minute stroll over the border to the Laguna Internacional, where a Guatemalan marimba entertains shoppers at the artesans' market. Pick up an embroidered bag, some cardomom chewing gum, a Gallo beer or the delicious Guatemalan drinking chocolate. The Villas feature ample bedrooms with hot water showers, a large restaurant where the basic menu is tasty and abundant, large communal bathrooms for campers, a common room, and smaller cabins for those who want more privacy, all a stone's throw from the edge of the lake. Walking in the moonlight along the road to the sound of crickets, or waking up to the sparkling blue water, will make an unforgetable trip. The Centro Eco-Turístico Tziscao is about an hour's drive south-east of Comitán.

This place reminded me of childhood holidays in which my family rented basic cabins on mountain lakes in British Columbia Canada. The cabins are basic but do have very good bathrooms with hot water showers. The are located right on the lake. We would have loved to have spent a couple of nights there, unfortunately the January weather was very wet and cold so we decided to move on after just one night. I would have included pictures, but unfortunately because of the weather they really did not do the place justice. Suggest that you look at Google Images as the pictures there are very representative. I can see this place being perfect for those travelling with children as there is a great lawn that goes right up to the water which would be ideal for water activities. They serve basic Mexican fare in the common area which is also equipped with wireless internet. The place can be booked on sites like Booking.com, however, unless you are travelling during a very busy season (Mexican Holiday), would suggest that you try just showing up as the price you will pay will be much less. Be aware that very little English is spoken in this area.
