Hotel Guestbook

See what our customers have to say about La Casa De Don David:

Karen and Iain - Plymouth, UK

'Thanks for a great stay at Lake Petén Itzá. A beautiful setting, tasty food, wine and friendly, helpful staff. You've made us fall in love with Guatemala - muchas gracias!' January 2013

Bhavana Kapal - Anishinawbek Territory, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

'I have been telling my wife ever since we got here that I want to "lose my passport" and get a job here. This has been the best part of the trip and I am very sad to leave. The hotel was beautiful and everyone around was amazingly kind and helpful. We felt so welcomed and cared for. The Mayan garden was a strong feature and enjoyed walking it every morning. I don't know when but we will definitely be back sometime in the future. There is no word for "goodbye" in my language. We say "baamampii" which translates to "until I see you again". I think this is fitting' April 2012

Sam & Jacqui Crawley - Bristol, UK

'We had only planned to stay here max 2 nights, but with our first evening here, the tranquility, the birds, the dog, the garden, the hammocks and of course, the excellent staff, we decided to change our plans and extend to 4 nights. All staff were warm, greeting us with warm smiles and nothing is too much bother. So thank you for helping us celebrate our 1st year of marriage together (and arranging the stunning exotic flowers)! We leave El Remate with many fond memories in which La Casa De Don David has played a major part. Thank you!' March 2011

'I had fun :o)' May 2010

Sandor (Germany) & Mel (UK)

'We stumbled across this hotel by chance and it turned out to be one of our favourites in Guatemala. The hotel is just amazing. We loved the topiary of the toucans. I loved the German bread. We even got our 5 min. boiled eggs for breakfast! What else can you ask for? Thank you to all the lovely staff and to Don David. We'll strongly recommend your place to other travellers. Gracias por todo' November 2009

Rachel & Ian - Oregon, USA

'When we finally convinced our tour guide/taxi driver that we wanted to stay in El Remate, not Flores, we were very happy that we didn't give in. This place is beautiful and well worth it. The gardens are wonderful, the staff was excellent and our room was clean. Thanks again, muchas gracias!' March 2007

Robin Boylan

'From first seeing this place on the internet, to the friendliness and responsiveness per e-mail and finally being here, it has been nothing but a pleasant experience. The facilities are perfect, the garden is gorgeous and the staff is friendly. Mayra and I liked it so much, we decided to stay an extra night. Our expectations were exceeded by far, even if they were high to begin with. Thanks for a wonderful time!' July 2005

Samantha Simon - Holland

'La Casa De Don David was great! I've been travelling for a long time and this was a nice, peaceful place to relax for four days. Everybody is so helpful, especially David himself. It made me feel at home. I loved the garden as well, the food was delicious, enjoyed the menu of the day. I hope more tourists will come and discover La Casa De Don David.' July 2004

Charlotte & Tobias, Denmark

'What a wonderful place...and and unforgettable time here! Thank you David for all your help and a great thank you to all your staff. Hope to see you all again!?!' June 2004

Jillaine & Michael, Australia

'What a terrific place to stay when visiting Tikal! We have certainly enjoyed our 3 days at La Casa. Very relaxing - the hammock in front of our door was an inspired decorating touch!! We also liked that La Casa was very 'user friendly' with plenty of information and helpful suggestions about Tikal and other day trips. Hasta luego!' May 2003
