I found this wonderful - Oase - Vecchia Toscana in Livingston right at the ocean. Perfect place to stop and relax while you are taken care of by Daniela and the excellent italian cook Ivan. The athmospher is so charming family minded, clean and the swimming pool just cools you down after a long journey. They help you out with... More

We' ve spent 5 days here and ggt no discount. The room and especialy bathroom was smelly and humid. Good location on the beach, however the beach is quite poor and it takes you15 minutes to get into centre of Livingston. The english speaking staff member from Guatemala was extremely helpful, the breakfasts were below average. The resort has nothing... More

This comment makes no sense and honestly I do not understand the reasons of writing negative things because the reservation books indicate that he reserve for three days and he stayed with us two more nights, in total five nights. For me it is difficult to understand that if the rooms are not good ..... etc. Why he stayed longer... More

Vecchia Toscana is located on the water edge, facing the ocean on the outskirts of Livingston. The hotel grounds are tiny, but Daniela and Ivan, the italian owners, have managed to fit a lovely pool, a restaurant with the best pasta I have ever eaten, and decent rooms with a ventilator and air conditioning, in this Caribbean and Garifuna nest,...

Really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Probably the best room is the one right in front of the pool or just above it but I enjoyed the clean room, food and hospitality. The hotel is about 10mins walk from the water taxi point so worth getting a taxi if you have luggage. Try the home-cooked food, especially the bread.

Very quiet and calm place, right on the beach. 4. Internet is rather fast and stable Cons: 1. Room (we got a double) is small, gloomy and stuffy. AC is not a luxury... More

Having stayed here for 3 nights I am now really surprised by the glowing reviews. I was treating myself over Xmas but it turns out it was the wrong decision. First, I was travelling alone, and it is a 15 minute walk along the beach to the town (past reviews say 5-20 minutes). I timed it. The issue with the... More
