We have been wanting to visit Tikal for some time...so about 3 months ago we made a call directly to Coppola website to set a trip to La Lancha, Blanceneaux and Turtle Inn. We had already stayed at Blanceneaux 13 years ago...(loved, loved, loved) and had driven past Turtle Innn while sailing in Placencia. So...our trip started in La Lancha...

Nice boutique hotel! Greeting: We were greeted with a yummy welcome drink and cold towels. We were taken to our room and told we could handle the paperwork at dinner which was nice because we had just been on the Tikal tour and were tired. Rooms: The rooms are beautiful, beds comfortable and very clean. We stayed in Rainforest room...

Our travel agent recommended this small boutique hotel as a base for our visit to Tikal. It was lovely! The rooms are smallish but charming. Each double "cabin" has a deck with hammocks and chairs looking down on the lake. Meals are served at the top of the property on a large patio--and at dinner you are surrounded by candle...

This is a luxury retreat with great views over Lake Petan, well-appointed individual cabins and a good restaurant. However, and this is a big 'but', on arrival we were forced to sign an extraordinary legal waiver that absolved the resort of all responsibility for any damage or injury however caused, including by the negligence or failure of the resort. I...

Extraordinary location . Rooms are small but largely compensated by common areas . A simply beautiful deck on the lake . A mirador arranged in a very nice way . A very pleasant bar on top of the dining terrace. So , a perfect place in a country where beautiful hotels are not really common . But. But the food...

We had a great experience at La Lancha. The views from the dock on the lake and the staff cannot be beaten. We even were fortunate to meet Mr Coppolla on our stay there which was unforgettable and probably a once in a lifetime event. Anna Lucia, Frank and Tony were exceptional and always went out of their way to...

We stayed here with three little ones and their parents, in the new Rainforest rooms, over looking the lake. This is a beautiful location and exclusive only ten rooms. Service is calm and serene though could be said to be slow. Bar staff making lemonade took an age and also when ordering food, especially for the children it could take...

we stayed here for two nights in January 2017 as a base for Tikal. This stylish lodge offers all anyone would want and then some. The personal service was great and the suite excellent. It comes close to the very high end safari lodges in Africa. Only Coppola wines were offered - understandable since his family owns the property but...

We decided to make la Lancha our base for our Tikal adventure. What a great decision. First of all, the property is wonderful. We took a Rainforest Suite, and didn't regret our decision. Sitting on our balcony was an entertainment in itself: spider monkeys, a woodpecker, an iguana, countless birds, and frogs. The evening sounds are like a meditation soundtrack....

What a great review to read first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee overlooking our beautiful lake. You've said it right, Unbeatable base for Tikal... with the road recently graded and rolled over it makes it a swift in and out for tours, much more comfortable and easier on our vehicles. Indeed our Lake View Suites and...
