Gucumatz is everything needed and them some more! The room was nothing fancy but it was very clean and nothing was lacking. The Inn's grounds and staff are what really set this place apart. There were comfortable places to lounge and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. It was perfect after a long day's drive and border crossing to sit at the edge of the lake, dangle our legs in the water, drink a cold beer, and watch the sun go down. Moya was so helpful. She kept a running tab for us as we enjoyed cold Gallo beers and home-cooked breakfasts and dinners (Moya is an excellent cook). We really, really loved the humming bird feeders everywhere. The hummers are three times larger than the ones we're use to and they sound like mini helicopters. If we make it back into the area we already plan to spend at least a whole day just relaxing and enjoying Gucumatz.

Very, very relaxing A this Inn is right on the waterfront. Far
enough away from the hustle yet close enough you can
join in if you wish.

Rooms are comfortable, clean and very quiet.

The restauarnt is quite good too. Prices are very reasonable

Solo traveller who stayed for 3 nights in October 2013. It felt like visiting family. Quite isolated, so recommended for a relaxing stay. Very clean inn, delicious food available for purchase, beautiful area.

Our family of five stayed here in April 2014. Moya and her team are excellent hosts, serving authentic food for breakfast and dinner, offering opportunities to experience interactions with the local people, and assisting on shuttling us to and from town. The location is pretty removed from town (which is part of the charm), so be prepared to make arrangements on getting places.

The lake is crisp and clean and you will wake to birds singing. There are nooks and crannies everywhere for you to curl up with a book, binoculars, or a beer. Be sure to bring a bright flashlight to spot the kinkajous (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinkajou) at night as they forage for food in the trees. During our stay she had rescued three motherless baby kits (foxes) and was rearing them for reintroduction to the wild. This actually proved to be a highlight of our whole Guatemala vacation for my youngest son.

Also, when you come, Moya supports a local school, so ask if there is anything that you can bring in your suitcase to help out. The local kids need even the most basic of school supplies.

We stayed 2 nights in this little paradise and fell in love with the place, the host Moya and Guatemala. It is conveniently located between Flores and Tikal, so it is perfect for those planning to visit both places. It also is right on the lake with comfortable entrances, a palapa with hammocks, benches to enjoy the view, awesome view by the way! We had breakfast included, the bread was home made warm and tasty, the owner, Moya, makes sure every guests feels at home and gets enough of food and drinks. I loved to be trusted with fridge full of drinks - you could take what you need and write down whatever you took for billing later. The place is taken care of, clean and beautifully decorated. There is guatemalan art everywhere, very cozy. I didn't know you can stay in a luxurious place like this on that budget. We used kayaks free of charge, there is a library in the game room, there is a beautiful living room with tv and all kinds of artefacts, felt like a museum, i could spend a whole day there; there are birds, there are bars, ping pong table, souvenier shop and a little grocery store. It is just amazing how there is so much to please the most demanding guest!!! And so inexpensive! Moya is a great and knowledgeable hostess, nature lover and traveller, she stoically survived an avalanche of my questions, helped a lot with understanding guatemala and planning my other adventures. She also had some rescue baby-foxes at the time, it was fun watching them play. I'll strongly recommend it to all my friends and hope to come here again. The best inn, loved it loved it loved it!!!
