My family spent 3 nights in Nitun in April as a home base to explore Tikal and Aguateca and the experience was wonderful. The food was cooked and prepared delightfully, the enclave is quiet and surrounded of nature and Lorena and her stuff took good care of us.
The cabanas are authentic but still very comfortable, spacious and clean.
I really recommend the trek to Aguateca, although expensive (like almost any tour around Tikal anyway) being able to have a guide for the four of us and get into the jungle and across the 30 meter deep and only two width gorge that takes you to the ruins was unforgettable.
If you are staying in Flores to visit the ruins this place is highly recommended not only for its uniqueness but because the staff will take great care of you.
