The staff is very helpful, althought we didnot stay here, they organized a bus for us to Belize City and exchanged the surplus Quetzlaes into USD. We had a dinner here, smoked pork chop, which was very tasty.

There is a daily special in addition to regular fare. Worth eating here in a relaxed atmosphere with a great view of Lake Peten.

This place is lovely. Great setting by the lake and gorgeous garden. The owners speak get English and are super helpful as reflected by previous travellers. If your budget allows the hotel and food are great. Mid price so not cheap.

Whether you're a guest in our hotel or just stopping by, we welcome your visit to our little piece of paradise. Breakfast is served a la carte from 6:30am, with a variety of options such as the Guatemalan breakfast (eggs, beans, plantains and chorizo), homemade yogurt and banana pancakes. Reservations are not required. There are also several lunch options on our menu, served until 4pm. Dinner is a fixed menu, a typical Guatemalan special every evening with a meat and vegetarian option. Please make reservations before 4pm of the same day, dinner is served at 7pm.If you are headed to Tikal before we open for breakfast, we can prepare a box lunch for you. Rosita's famous desserts include chocolate cheesecake, apple pie, fried plantains with vanilla ice cream and guava pie made from fresh guavas in our garden. Among our selection of drinks you will find allspice tea, fresh-squeezed pink lemonade and depending on what’s in season, perhaps even Pitaya (Dragon fruit) juice. Enjoy a frozen margarita or piña colada while viewing the sunset from the veranda. The restaurant is open air, with a spectacular view of our garden and Lake Petén Itzá.
