Fodor's Review

Perched on a hillside in El Remate, La Mansión del Pájaro Serpiente has some of the prettiest accommodations in El Petén. You have a choice of rooms in either standard or deluxe stone and thatch bungalows. Canopy beds grace the larger bedrooms, which are furnished in dark tropical woods and have big windows that let in lots of light. You can throw open the windows to catch the lake breezes, so sleeping is comfortable, although the deluxe rooms (around Q430) have air-conditioning. Up a hill is a swimming pool, and farther up you'll find a covered terrace with several hammocks. The grounds are lovingly maintained, and there are even resident peafowl. The open-air restaurant serves local and international dishes.
