Good and bad here.

The good:
The location is amazing. Heaven. The grounds are well maintained. The food is good and not too expensive, all things considered. The staff is able & willing, although they speak no English.

The bad:
I think it comes down to Denny, as far as I'm concerned. The big problem was - he was not there. We were 3 friends, spoke with him in advance, but he wasn't at the resort. Gave a different explanation to each of us - and we were left with a purely Spanish speaking crew. Had to ring him every time we had an issue - like negotiating the ridiculous price of a tour, or trying to understand why we were charged for the boat that took us to the resort.

No WiFi to speak of - again, with no heads up, again, with different reasons and excuses. A big issue in this isolated location.

The place seems a bit rundown. Like it was happening a while ago, but at a certain point, someone lost interest.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here as we pretty much had the run of the place, we had an upstairs room with a balcony overlooking the lake which was clean and spacious. The boardwalk into the lake is idyllic, the water is very clean and flat here so its heaven if you get it in these circumstances. Denny himself however is temperamental to say the least; he was very helpful in one instance, then very rude the next. The other staff are nice enough and the food is average but reasonably priced. All in all we loved our stay here as it was so quiet and tranquil which was what we were after, however its probably not worth the trip (it is quite isolated) if this is not what you are looking for.

My family and I stayed at Denny's in one of the beachfront chalets. The room was spacious and the A/C worked great! The bathroom is tiny and we had a little difficulty getting the hot water with the suicide shower! The resort setting along the beach is beautiful. We ate dinner out on the lake, and the food was good. We had yummy piña coladas and great margaritas. The hammocks are nice to relax in. The boat ride to the resort is fun.

We spent some time with Denny and he was interesting and great to know. He gave us a history of the location and the Mayan culture.

We stayed here on our way to Tikal as a halfway stop between Antigua and Tikal. We would highly recommend Denny's!

Denny's beach was a beautiful and comfortable place to relax and get away from the business of the city! Also very close to the worlds only natural hot waterfalls. The rooms have air conditioning and balconies with great views.

We stayed in the duplex (up and down) lake front cabin (#6 and 7). the cabin's were fine. i appreciated extra towels, and the wonderful view of the lake and sunset. Denny was super helpful, from accomodating our date change gracefully, to setting us up with activities. The hot waterfall is not to be missed! Denny gave us just enough attention and information and made it very clear that he was able to handle and available for any request. This is especially helpful because the location is remote with boat access only, and he has great tips for making the most out of your stay.

The food was very good, and very reasonably priced, especially considering that whatever is not grown or raised locally (like beer!) must be brought in by boat. The staff was excellent and highly capable/ helpful. The massage therapist was quite good, and an excellent bargain.

The lake is amazing- I am from North America, so it is rare to swim in a sandy bottom, clean WARM lake. The property is full of great places to lounge. Grounds are above average landscaping with fragrant flowers and nice raised walkways. The place is family friendly, but we had a great time as 2 couples, and loved the people watching. Plenty to do for one and all!
