We spent 4 nights there and we liked it very much. The rooms were nice and clean, shower was working and I think nobody would need hot water, because of the weather:-) The lady helped us a lot with ordering a private boat so we could make our trips - Belice and Play Blanca. Very nice place, you can have... More

It was low season when we visited. We asked for a room without A/C which has the lower price. We saw the room it looked clean and has hot shower (the instant heater in the shower). The receptionist did not mention that our price does not include hot shower. When it was time to take a shower there was no... More

My experience was mixed. On arrival the room I was given did not have all the facilities promised, although I was moved to a better room on the second of my three days staying there. Likewise the booking said English was spoken when in fact this is not the case. The room was comfortable enough and the hotel's location makes... More

The price for a room with a/c seemed kinda high at $60 but it was worth it. The owner is very sweet and pleasant to talk to. There weren't many others there and that was good to, no noise from others night or morning. It's right on the water, but no beach there. Beautiful views and spots to have coffee... More

We stayed at Gil Resort while passing through Livingston. We had read that it was recomended on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The rooms were very clean and the staff were wonderfully kind and friendly. We were not real comfortable in Livingston but we were very comfortable at Gil Resort. They even had a night security guard watching over... More

This is the only place that has hot water. We not really but they do have a way to add hot water to your shower. Ours was not working just right and they went out of their way to fix it. The rooms were small but just very clean. We had a room with a view to the mouth of... More

I stayed here overnight with friends and plans to visit Playa Blanca the next day. I was charmed by the various patios where a person can sit and look at the lovely water views. I believe I counted three or four different patios (including the dock). The employees were all very kind and helpful. Negatives: No hot water in the... More
