Private or Shared Bath?
Shared. Showers were good, but there were lots of spiders.
The garden was pretty, but the owner was a bit stand-offish. No one else was staying here, which leads me to believe that there are better places to stay, but we just didn’t find them.
Food and Other Amenities:
No restaurant on-site, but there are plenty nearby.
From the boat dock, head west for a very short distance, then take the first right down a path. If you get to Piramides, you have gone too far. Follow the path, and Hotel San Marcos is on the right side.
I did not feel that Hotel San Marcos was very secure. Our room was on ground level, with large windows that didn’t seem to be very secure. The owner was always either hanging out in her apartment upstairs or off at a yoga class. The property was left open, and I didn’t see anyone else watching over things, although a young Guatemalan man was employed there, and he was likely around, but I just didn’t see him.
