“Nice Weekend Away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2011

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend at Dulce y Salado, and I really enjoyed my stay. The owners were very kind and friendly, and the rooms were cute and spotlessly clean. The pool and surrounding area were very well-maintained, and given the hot sand and huge waves in Monterrico it was a relief to have a good pool! They had a very nice view of the water from their restaurant or hammock area, and I thought the food was great. It was quiet at night and a very comfortable stay.

The only drawback was that there was nowhere to fill water bottles, and since it is SO HOT in Monterrico, we ended up spending as much on bottled water as we did on our rooms! Because Dulce y Salado is a bit outside of town, we could not walk to any tiendas to get our own water. That really brought down the value of our stay.

I would definitely stay here again, but I recommend bringing LOTS of water of your own to save money! Other than that, we had an amazing stay.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with 12 amazing high school students who had worked so hard for the good of the people of Guatemala. The students fund raised and built a school on a small finca. We ended our trip at this hotel and what a "wet-rag" these owners proved to be. We had fun inspite of them but felt like we needed sneak around to enjoy ourselves. There was no music and the owners seemed to feel pain when they served us.

They need to loosen up and enjoy life or get a new line of work.

They gave us these dreadful keys with huge plastic items attached so we would not lose their valuable key. So we had to carry these stupid key chains around and if we took them apart they got angry. Try sticking a big plastic thing into your pant pocket.

I would stay there again buy don't expect much positive energy from the owners.

  • Liked — Location to the beach and Guatemala City.
  • Disliked — The owners have a poor attitude.
