Spanish Schools in Xela or Antigua

I am a 35 yr old non-traditional age student studying in the US. In my previous academic life I was a Spanish major. I would like to study Spanish on a university level again, but it has been 15 years since I have studied it in school, and I need a refresher. Can anyone recommend a good, comprehensive program? The school that I attend now is very rigorous. I don't want to spend a significant amount of money, and not be able to keep up in class when I get back. I am considering Tecan Uman, Casa Xelaju, Celas Mayas, Minerva & Escuela San Jose. If anyone has any information or other schools they want to share, please let me know.

Also, I have a medical condition (the reason that I dropped out of school the 1st time) which requires that I adhere to a strict medical diet and also necessitates 8 hours of sleep. Is it possible to rent a studio so I can cook? Or is there such a thing as a quiet hostel? I don't want to make anyone else's life difficult. I don't want to have the host family have to cook something especially for me, nor do I want to be rooming with an 18-21 year old who wants to party when I need to sleep. If anyone can give me any advice on how to deal with this. I would really appreciate it.
