This is the best hotel in the area, Gus (owner) attention to the details, tours, and hotel maintenance gave this hotel the right environment to our stay. The food was awesome and the location is the best to visit Livingston and the 'Rio Dulce'.

Livingston really exceeded our expectations and this hotel was really nice too. We were the only ones there!

The hotel is reminiscent of an...

This is a review for Malena's Restaurant, Posada El Delfin's house restaurant. The food at Posada El Delfin was decent. The food was not very hot but was adequate as we were hungry. There may be better places to eat in Livingston.
