This is a simple resort with large rooms without any character, and serious limitations in terms of front desk service. The only exceptional quality is its location, on the riverside in Rio Dulce, in what is a National Park, on paper at least. Given its location, it should strive to educate the tourist regarding the extraordinary ecosystem it is occupying,... More

We stayed only one night in this hotel during our two weeks in Guatemala. Easily the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, but be careful, our guides said that despite our bad experiene it's even worse in the other hotels in the area! Anyway hotel was virtually empty, the rooms are very basic and smell of mould! In the middle... More

Our rooms were clean, comfortable and functional but a little overpriced even after we had negotiated the rate desite this large hotel being virtually... More

Hotel Mansion del Rio is a bit out of ‘town’ and one would need its own transport to get there and away. This is ‘a grand’ property in terms of scale. The location is good to start your boat trip from Rio Dolce to the national park to Livingston (lago de Izabal). It has a private and secure car park.... More

A/C worked great, some of the services may com expensive (like room service with 40% over price) but staff was great with... More

This is the worst hotel I've stayed at in any price range, much less for $150 USD. The staff is unhelpful. The rooms are incredibly old, dirty and the comforter had literally worn all the way through. There is a dirty ring around the wall where it nears the floor. Paint is cheap. Bedding is cheap. What are they thinking?... More
