Banana Palms Hotel, San Felipe de Lara
It was ok
The rooms were pretty basic, price seemed to high for what was offered. Food was amazing! Room had a lot of mosquitos and there was no candles or mosquito nets which was extremely odd being so close to the lake.

Excellent hotel/resort on Lago de Izabal
This is an excellent hotel/resort on Lago de Izabal. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the room was large, clean and very nice. My only minor qualm was that their was no wifi in the room, only in the lobby, restaurant and pool areas. However, this wasn't a big problem considering how nice the place is and how affordable it is. The hotel is walking distance to Castillo de San Felipe, which is very nice to see. However, you will need to take a cab to get to downtown Rio Dulce. Overall, we loved this place and would stay there again!
