I recently visited the Soleil Pacific, and is so sad to see so beautiful hotel being in very bad conditions. First surprise was to get stuck in the elevator, then surprise surprise, no A/C in the unit. And finally all my family is sick now because of the swimming pool water they developed ear infection.

PROs: The hote is very nice and covery a huge area and has 2 nice and clean swimming pools and is located directly at a nice pacific beach, which seems endless and quiet. The rooms are really nice and have everything to European standard you would expect for the price. CONs: The staff was not so useful. Especially the ones... More

Okay....so this is probably our 18th exchange with Interval International to various locations around the world with children in tow. This area of Guatemala sounded good...great black sand beaches, quiet area, etc...we wanted a rest from all of the hustle and bustle occurring right before spring break with school, work, and sports competition. With my husband, and 14 and 11... More

Had a few days here but asked to be transferred to Antigua(weeks timeshare) which they accomodated easily (nice staff here) -nothing much to do in the area, black sand and not many shade areas on the beach. The place is really run down, a contrast to their Antigua resort, and the floors in our room were never mopped just swept... More

I would give to the rooms at this hotel not more then 3 star. Very poor, need to be renovated. Very good territory, with beautiful trees and plants. Very good meal. The hotel's territory is extended by the territory with private villas, so, there is a lot of place to walk. Pleasant staff. Our balcony has pool side, but it... More

We stayed at this resort for 2 nights and 3 days at the beginning of December 2013. The check-in was expedite, staff were friendly. Rooms were clean and neat. Although the food selection at the buffets is not extensive as you would find in the Dominican Republic or Mexico, it is still good and you would not starve. The alcoholic... More

We really enjoyed our experience, great kid friendly place, very clean, attentive friendly staff. The pools were clean, the bed linens and towels were very high quality, and the beds were so comfortable. Lots to eat and drink, we are already planning our next trip.

I decided to write a review because when I was first researching hotels to stay in Guatemala, I noticed that there are very few and dated reviews for this hotel. Nevertheless, we booked this hotel because we wanted to stay a day a beach while visiting Guatemala. We took a shuttle from Antigua Guatemala to this place. The shuttles can... More

I was unable to book the shuttle-the resort's web site has no contact info. The resort IM'd me through FB that they would email me, but they never did. As the date was getting close, I booked a rental car. According to the resort's web site, had they picked us up, we would have been at the resort by 7pm.... More

I have stayed at Soleil Pacifico while fishing in Puerto San Jose. If you are going to stay here, I would recommend the all inclusive package because the food is expensive if purchased separately. The hotel is dated and definitely needs some major upgrading. If you come from the states, you must remember that you are traveling in Central America.... More
