hi 1 year ago I booked and prepaid the hotel and due to COVID19 the trip was canceled and the hotel owner sent the email confirmation that in the period from April 8, 2020 to April 30, 2021 I can book the room without additional fees and payments. In march 2021 I sent a couple of emails to the owner to reschedule this period or book the room, askes for a refund and got no responses. DO NOT BOOK THE ROOMS - they will charge you and you are getting no chance for the trip.
Great place to stay for a weekend. The location is excellent, just a bit away from the noisier parts of Monterrico but close enough to go for a stroll along the beach and visit the other restaurants and bars in Monterrico. The owner Cecilio was very friendly and really tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Certainly one of the best places to stay at in Monterrico.
"Hey, man...I'm OK if we never leave here." -- my brother's first words after seeing the view from the balcony. Mirabella Eco Lodge is perfectly sited right on one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen (I can finally check off "walk on a black-sand beach" from my bucket list!). The multi-lingual owner Cecilio went way out of his way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves, not only making sure we had everything we needed in our rooms but also helping to arrange excursions for us in the nearby nature preserve. And the food was amazing -- fresh, local ingredients prepared by Carmen with that home-cooking touch and a huge smile. One tip -- the hotel is actually located about a mile east of the town of Monterrico (our nav system got it wrong). Not a big deal, just keep driving east after you leave town until you see the driveway to the hotel on the right.…
This is a very nice hotel to have a relaxing time. The place is quiet. There are no loud bars or discos nearby.The owner is very friendly and he is always available. The pool is very nice; suitable for adults and children. There are plenty of tables in different areas to sit down and have a drink. The hammocks are also a great way to relax there. The beach is right in from and there was literally no one there. The waves are very strong, so children should always be supervised. Monterrico is not an open water swimming area. It is very dangerous. So that said having the pool right there is perfect. Food is great. Try the Tortilla Española. Very good pancakes too.
We loved our stay at the hotel. Everything was excellent: food, tranquility, rooms, staff and all the activities. We booked a transfer from Guatemala City Airport which was super convenient and the driver Brian was super nice and told us about the area. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Guatemala.
