Interaction with guests

The neighborhood

Lake Peten Itzá is located a few steps away so you can take a walk of 5 minutes and you'll get to the public pier to enjoy sunsets or swim in the Lake. Also if you love birdwatching (depending the season) you will appreciate birds flying at the Lake shores.

Our neighbors are other hotels and restaurants.
We are located on main road to Tikal so it would be a little noisy during the day.

Please take into account that we are located in a rural area, dogs,chickens, horses are common to be seen on the streets. And also families tend to have cats, chickens, pigs and other domestic animals. Don't be surprised if you hear a rooster Crowing In The Morning. That doesn't mean that always is that way. ;) (we don't have any domestic animals, just a german shepherd named Rex) and also Peten region is located in a tropical area, so mosquitoes and other little animals like geckos, or mantis are common not because the place is unclean but it is part of its ecosystem.

Transportation: You can easily catch a minibus right in front of our place, either you want to go to Flores, FRS airport, or bus station. We also arrange shuttle services to Belize City, Semuc Champey, Palenque in Mexico, Chetumal. If you need information about daily tours we offer or if you want to hire a guide to visit Tikal, do not hesitate to contact us.
Sunrise tour is a highlight!

Getting around

Local minibus: Public minibuses run every 15 minutes, From El Remate to Santa Elena: you can take it right in front of our property, they run from 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 pm. From the bus station in Santa Elena (Flores) to El Remate: departure every 15 minutes, from 7:00 AM - 5:00 p.m. (the office closes at 5:00 pm.) that's why after that time you have to take the minibus at the old bus station in Santa Elena. If you are not sure how to get to the bus station I suggest to take a tuc tuc (ricksha, auto, tuk-tuk) that are widely used here in Guatemala to get to the bus station. They will charge Q.10.00 per person.
Taxi: if you haven't arranged taxi service with us, you can find them at the bus station in Santa Elena, at the Island of Flores, or at the Airport Mundo Maya. They will charge about Q.220.00

Please visit our website to read more about how to get there.

My stay at Las Gardenias was just right. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and Remate was charming. Thanks!

I stayed at el Remate for a couple of days, mainly because I wanted to go to Tikal, to my surprise there is so much more to do there! Delmy's family Hotel is just wonderful. It is walking distance from the lake, its pretty hot there, so going for a swim and watching the sun set is quite delightful. Delmy, her mother, and their staff are just AMAZING. They arranged the Tikal tour and a horse tour around el Remate and I was very pleased with both of them. They were also very kind to arrange the transportation for me to and from Flores Airport. Don't be surprised if you find a few ants in your room, bed or a house gecko (those are very common in that area). Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Las Gardenias. Thank you Delmy for your hospitality!

Great location. Fairly comfy beds and good shower. Unless you are a early riser, watch out for the loud noises at sunrise.

Great place to crash after a long day climbing around Tikal. A/C worked great. The restaurant above the tienda has great Guatemalan breakfast. The town shuts down pretty much at dark so plan on an early night.

We had a great stay here! The staff was super helpful, the breakfast hearty, the rooms bright and clean, and the garden beautiful. The best part was it's proximity to the dock for lake swims and watching the sunset. We enjoyed our stay!

Nice stay in el Remate. Good location for going to Tikal for the sunrise tour. Only problem was that we had some small animals in the room and the water was cold.

Response from Delmy:
Thanks for your review, we are located in a tropical forest region and we also are surrounded by a lush garden and vegetation, so small animals are common in public areas of the property, not a dangerous ones but we do our best to keep clean the rooms. If you got cold water I think you should tell us in order to fix the problem. !Thanks for your recommendations! We hope you had a great time in Tikal.
