TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Casona del Lago Flores
Our first accomodation fell through and we ended up driving around and found this beautiful little hotel right on the lake in Flores. Clean, pretty with a stunning view - what else could you want? It was under $50 Aus per night and the staff were lovely and very helpful.

... shuttle van arrives and its a dinged up old van the makes plenty of rickety noises as we drive. Veenhovens van was in better knack than this thing and we have 11 people crammed into it for an 8 hour bus ride, no movies or air con haha. Just got to love it. After leaving Flores, the driver is on his mobile driving and seems to be told he has missed two people from pick up. So we sit on the side of the road for what feels like ages until the extra 2 travellers are driven down ...
... the max 2000 quetzals (roughly $300). Get dropped in Flores, check into our pretty ****** looking Hotel Los Estudiantes. The language barrier jumps up again with the young employee having no English. But we get through it, drop our bags and head out as none of us had eaten since breakfast and it was 1730 and we needed to try the other ATM and hope for luck. My Citibank visa card works and we get the max out but the Comm Bank MasterCard does not work. Not sure why but we ...
... have a ticket to go on the same bus with them in the morning (although they tried really hard), we headed out for dinner and some dancing.
In the morning as everyone (except me) was preparing to leave, Nick, being the gentleman and futbol fanatic that he is, allowed me to go with the rest of the group on the morning shuttle, while he chivalriously stayed behind to watch a sports game. What a guy. Georgina, a beautiful person inside and out and the final member ...
... all day but I expect it's beautiful here when it's nice and sunny. After lunch, sasha and I had noticed that the hotel had a 'jacuzzi' so we wanted to give it a go. I don't really think you could've called it a jacuzzi because it was just like a cornered off bit of the pool and it had about 6 jets. Being Central America, they say to expect the unexpected so we asked reception if they could turn it on and they said yes and that it would be warm within 5 ...
... enjoying a glass of wine and loving in the warm breeze; a beautiful end to another great day.
No one was very hungry but Hector suggested a pupuseria for a light dinner and that got our attention. He knew a family that had had a restaurant across the street from the hotel. On inquiring he found they had moved but no problem . . . it was just a few blocks but pouring rain ...
