What an amazing place, great views, great people, great location. The staff and food was great, and many many beers. The pool was so soothing after a day in the sun and again many many beers. I so want to go back as soon as possible.

This hotel was part of a SmarTours excursion to Guatemala. The small bungalows remind one of a place to settle down in a camp grounds. The paths leading to the bungalows are dark and creepy. The bungalows themselves are small, lacking adequate lighting, no amenities to speak of. By the time we ate dinner we were all so tired from... More

Your island hideaway! A very nice island hotel: One arrives from Rio Dulce by water taxi. The surroundings are comfortable, dinner good ( you must put in your order by early afternoon ) but you can order a Pizza ( water taxi ) Breakfast buffet is adequate: fruit, yogurt; eggs, sausage, bacon in warming trays. You can arrange for water... More

The location on the water was awesome...great views! Good WiFi at the pool and lounge. The room was bizarre..the shower and sink were in the bedroom, only the toilet had a door! There was no storage for clothing. There were bugs in the room. The food was not great and unless you had a boat there was no other place... More

It is situated in such a lovely place - on the banks of Rio Dulche, exactly on the water. The cabin has everything that I need, and the place and the view were unbelievable. Sitting on the deck, looking at the sun rising over the far away mountains , illuminating the waters of great quiet river or in the evening... More

This isn't the place you want to go if you are looking for some yuppy Cancun resort. This is where you go when you want to wake up with a cup of coffee and sit on the back porch over the water and enjoy the peace. It is wonderful. There is so much landscaping and plant life that you almost... More
