Welcome to our hotel!
If you are visiting the Tikal and Flores area of Guatemala, we welcome you to our little piece of paradise, La Casa De Don David guesthouse & hotel in El Remate. Located closer to Tikal park than Flores, we are just 15 minutes away from the entrance.
A family owned and operated establishment, we – David (with over 30 years living in Petén), Rosita and Kelsey – offer a clean, modern and comfortable place to stay, with home cooked meals and lots of helpful information and services – find out more about us…
At La Casa De Don David we operate differently from other hotels – our rates start from just $26 per person per night (based on double occupancy) and this is 15-25% less than the authorized INGUAT (Guatemala Institute of Tourism) rate for our hotel.
However, we don’t scrimp on quality – our rooms are clean and comfortable, you have access to FREE WiFi or a guest computer for the duration of your stay, and there’s a meal included too – not to mention the beautiful gardens, the friendly, helpful staff and the great atmosphere!
We’re proud to be a top-rated hotel in El Remate on TripAdvisor, earning Certificates of Excellence for eight years: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019! We were also ranked #6 of 25 on TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice 2013 top places to stay in Guatemala! In addition to that, we have great reviews in Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Moon Guides, Le guide du routard, and other guide books!
