This was a nice hotel in a lovely setting and with great views. The ambience of the hotel is definitely Caribbean and it has a nice pool and pretty gardens. Breakfast is good and the bar (outside the hotel entrance) is great! The rooms are a little tired and could do with a bit of refurbishment but, having seen the... More

Everyone was very friendly. The room was comfortable and clean. Pool was great and it is right near everything in town. Would recommend this over the Vecchia Toscana resort. Food was good in the restaurant and a local band played every night

We couldn't exactly put our finger on it but there is definitely something very appealing about this hotel. It is tired and could really do with some TLC, but the staff do very well with what they have. The rooms are quite basic but very functional and ours was spotlessly clean. Rather bizarrely there was a new television, but possibly... More

Our Lost World of the Mayans tour group of 14 arrived after a boat tip and some bird watching on the way down the Rio Dulce for a 2 nights stay at this lost paradise of peace and tranquility. It's a beautiful location, but you arrive at their dock and have a to hike up many flights of stairs and... More

We did not stay in the hotel as we were only touring Livingston for the day. This was the turn around on a Rio Dolce boat ride (the only way to get here).. What a fine little city- and the hotel gives a wonderful ovelook to the bay of Hondourus. We used the restaurant for brunch. Great service- fine food-... More

Take a boat ride from Rio Dulce station downwards the river, and end up in this lost paradise. Located at the river ends next to the Caribbean. This is being peaceful far from the busy world. Great rooms with river and Caribbean View, great bathroom. Luscious gardens for strolls and relaxing, Take a beer sit on one of the many... More

The hotel is fine, but it could be better. The TV in the room is a 12 inch dated, not even flat screen TV. The A/C lacks a temperature control. All you get is a on and off switch. The restaurant is not as good and for the firs two nights I had to pay a higher rate because dinner... More

We had a lovely room overlooking the best view to Rio Dulce. They welcomed us with a tasty Cocoloco that we drank on the nice balcony. Waking up to the wonderful scenery was amazing! Breakfast was ok but I don't recommend dinner. No wifi in the room, only at reception.
