Pros: 1. Pool is fantastic – big, deep and clean 2. Garden is excellent - huge, nice, well-maintained with hammocks, flocks of parrot’s, funny frogs, lizards 3. 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

We enjoyed our stay at Vecchia Toscane. The service was perfect and the rooms and surroundings quite idyllic. Serious drawback is the location quite far from the town's center (20 minute walk). At night, when the beach and roads are deserted and dark, you don't want to walk that far to your hotel. Summary: + Friendly service + Nice food... More

Splendido. That's the best word to describe 'Vecchia Toscana' in Livingston. We had arrived into Livingston from Rio Dulce and having spent the previous two weeks travelling around Guatemala. Some people didn't seem too positive about Livingston before we got there, but I liked it. It is certainly a unique town but really is enjoyable to spend a few days.... More

It is very comfortable, you can compare a perfect place to rest and relax, the attentions of Iván and Daniela are some of the kindest Italian and attentive to that one can find. Excellent food is a great experience each delicious... More

We would fly back to Livingston ONLY to be at this place!!! Livingston is truly cool and romantic... do not expect Cancun. Food was fantastic (remember that Langouste by the sea?...those Matriciana Pasta?) our hosts were both attentive and friendly in a classy whimsical environment.... watching the numerous varieties of birds flying above the palm trees from the swimming pool.......
