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!’

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’

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!’

‘I had fun :o)’

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’

Bruce, Wati & Diane

‘Thanks for making our stay relaxing and worry free! Your small touches and great service really give you credit, we left well fed, relaxed and watered. Thanks again.’

Genelle Grant - Florida, USA

‘My fourth time here – because of the clean rooms, clean floors, and especially the vegetarian options [in the restaurant]. Very important for me! Keep up the excellent work – you are a treasure un tesoro. I will return!’
