    Peter and Yolanda are perfect hosts. The breakfast was fabulous and huge. The location is ideal: a short ferry ride across the lake from Flores. Close enough to town to be convenient but far enough to feel distanced from the busyness of it all. Peter took us for a hike around the ruins behind the house and then we went to the Mirador and the beach. We saw about 15 species of birds on our walk and while lounging on the veranda at the house. We will definitely come back.

    Beds aren't the most comfortable.

    Perfect spot with a nice view on Flores island and the lake. Owners are very friendly and have great knowledge about the surroundings, nature, Maya/Tikal history. They made sure we got everything we needed and arranged tours and transportation for us. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this place!

    Stayed with family of 4 Excellent service from airport pickup to leaving Flores. Very easy (and beautiful) to take the small boats from Flores to san miguel where the hotel is situated (5Q), so dont let this change your opinion of the hotel. excellent location with the most beautiful view of Flores. Beautiful beach within 20 min walk. Our only regret is only staying 3 nights and not doing the boattrip with guide. A great experience. Thanks to the owners for a very personal touch.

    Fabulous. Peter is from Oklahoma, and has owned the property with his Guatemalan wife Yolanda, for 30 years. Both are extremely friendly and helpful. Zapote Tree is in St. Miguel, which is a 3 minute boat ride from Flores, which costs about 60 cents. We found this to be a big benefit as we had an amazing view of Flores from the hotel, and it was very peaceful. The place was spotless, the rooms were a decent size, the a/c was great, and the beds were comfortable. They also have a small wading pond to cool off which was a pleasant thing to enjoy. Book your tours with them as they are the same cost as in Flores, and they will boat you to the tour operators, and walk you to the tour office for free. Ask for a packed lunch for the tour to Tikal. Additionally, the food at the hotel was excellent. The employees, Eric and Carlos will give you a fruit, coffee, and pastry breakfast for free or you can have a huge breakfast for $5.00. There are a few little stores and restaurants in San Miquel to explore if you want. Peter and Yolanda will be asking how they can help you. Trust them, they are totally trying to give you an amazing stay.

    It was all fabulous.
