I still don't know what to make of Livingston but if you are staying here Posada El Delfin is not a bad choice. Giovanni the manager is very helpful and knowledgeable and all the staff are very friendly. The hotel was clean, the rooms a decent size, the shower did the job and breakfast was a bonus. The swimming pool is good to cool down in and the hammocks on the boat dock are a great place to relax and watch the Pelicans, Frigate birds and the odd Osprey. The rooms can get pretty hot but the rooms have air-con.
I would be a bit dubious about staying in the rooms near the table football!

Quaint hotel. Extremely clean. Gio, whose the GM and his staff are AMAZING!!!! 1st class service all around. We had breakfast included with our room and that was a delicious breakfast tipico. Every ingredient was fresh and made to order. The watermelon/cantaloupe juice freshly squeezed was some of the best I've ever had. Please, if you plan on going to Livingston, do not hesitate to stay at The Posada el Delfin. You will not regret it.

We took the tour from Rio Dulce and when we arrived its in a great location, near town, but in the quiet side. The hotel is like a big 2 stories dock with the restaurant on top where you can feel the breeze while watching the most beautiful sunset in Guatemala. The food is excelent, specially the sea food a local delicacy and they have their own backery. They have a/c and afordable rates. Every time I go back there I stay there!!!

Clean hotel with excellent manager. Unfortunately there was no hot water when we arrived, we were then told we should have asked for it to be turned on! Rooms a good size, clean and tidy. We left at 7am and no option for breakfast that early, which was a bit disappointing.
Manager very responsive but think they need to spend a bit of money on updating the place and also tidying up the rubbish outside.

We spent 2 nice and quiet nights at Hotel Posada El Delphin in Feb 2006. At about $45 for a double, it seems to be the only midrange hotel in Livingston. The owners are helpful, and they are active in improving the community.

We arrived at the Posada after walking with our bags from the Port. They greeted us, recognized our name, had our reservation in a folder but then said "oh, we don't have a reservation for you…everything is full." They were "kind enough" to give us a room for one night, then moved us to a room with no bathroom. We had to use the public bathroom which wasn't very clean. They didn't refund any of the money for the downgrade. It was really disappointing.

The Posada itself was pretty and quirky, people were friendly, but with the room situation, I really felt cheated and that because we weren't staying as long as originally planned, they downgraded us and then went on and on about how it was the fault of the internet booking. (Yes, we'd informed them ahead of time).

When I was just a teenager, I took a day tour from a cruise ship with "Go With Gus". I returned to Livingston seven years later and was welcomed by the owners, Gus and Iracema, with nothing but open arms. I spent six weeks at the hotel, during which time I volunteered at a local school and gave English lessons to the hotel staff. It was an amazing experience thanks to Gus, Iracema, and their staff at the hotel, who cared for me like family.

The food is great, the rooms are spacious and clean, the pool is awesome, and if that's not enough, the staff will fix you up with anything else you might need!

I highly recommend a visit to Livingston and a stay with these lovely people that will always have a place in my heart

I stayed for 5 days (4 nights) at Posada El Delfin and it felt like a resort. The rooms are amazingly clean and the staff is courteous. It's always calm at the hotel and the beds are soft so I slept like a baby! Another good thing is that the rooms have little extras : soap, shampoo, clean towel everyday.

Few negative points : Sadly, when we came, the pool, restaurant and wi-fi were out of order. We also got told by the boss of the place (Gus) that we could only stay for a max. of 2 nights because the whole place was reserved by a group of tourist. The staff did not know anything about that renting thing, so they told us to stay as wanted. We never saw those tourists. We still had an amazing time, so I recommand the place.

I spent 2 nights at Posada El Delfin in September. The staff was very friendly and caring and the owner, Mr Gus, shared his knowledge with us. It was very interesting to hear his interesting stories and insights about Livingston and Guatemala. The room was very pretty and from the window we had a lovely ocean view. The grounds of the hotel were cozy, especially the pool area. I will totally recommend this hotel if you are looking for good quality and hospitality.

If you decide to take a bus -Litegua- from Guatemala City to Puerto Barrios it will take 6 hours, which means you would be arriving at around midnight, will have to spend the night at Puerto Barrios and take the 7:30 am boat to Livingston. Or you can spend the night in Guatemala City, take the 7:30 am bus to Puerto Barrios and take the boat to Livingston the same day. About picking you up at the Guatemalan airport and bring you to Puerto Barrios and Livingston, I will consult with my people in the City and send you the information. I will
