Crystal Paradise Resort, San Ignacio
Very Good8.0
Staff was very helpful in planning our tours. Since it rained nearly the whole week we were there, plans had to be adjusted daily and the staff was very helpful in giving us updated weather/road condition reports and suggesting other activities. Food was simple, but tasty. No fancy restaurant food, but more similar to a home cooked meal. Grounds were beautiful, and we're sorry that we did not get to explore it more. The rooms were simple, but spacious and clean. Not much privacy though. You can easily hear conversations taking place in the adjacent room, as well as the next bungalow over. to Since the walls of the room do not go all the way up to the roof, and are covered with mosquito netting, if someone is smoking outside of your room, it is the same as having them right in the room with you.

Amazing people and wonderful grounds
Everything at this lodge was so enjoyable I’d definately go again for longer next time. Birds and animals abound. We had the home cooked meals at the lodge and every night they were different and tasty. We were able to book Eric to take us on a tour of Caracol which I’d highly recommend. We also went to Tikal. All this headed by the calm and smiling manager Carolita.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The family who runs/owns the resort was great, helpful, and accommodating to any and all of our needs. We loved the serenity and peacefulness of the place. It was absolutely beautiful. A couple of things to keep in mind, they are little cabanas with no A/C, but we went during the hottest month for them and were comfortable in the evenings, super hot during the day, and they are located in a little village just outside of San Ignacio located off a mostly unpaved road. The drive was about 15 or so mins to town and very bumpy. We did tours every day so it wasn't much of an inconvenience for us. I believe if you are doing booked tours everyday or have rented your own vehicle, it shouldn't make much of a difference, but if you plan on taking a taxi plan on spending roughly $15 US each way. The only true con we had about the place was the cost of food such as breakfast lunch and dinner. The prices were more comparable to American prices. Breakfast and lunch were $10/pp and Dinner was $19/pp. We definitely enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

Beautiful place for relaxation
Stayed here for two nights in December. Very nice place with beautiful garden. Staffs are friendly and helpful. A little far from the town. It costs usd $15 for the taxi but there might be cheaper options. Didn't get a chance to explore the area. Heard there is a waterfall nearby and the resort has horses for tours.
