I recently went on a Medical Mission to the Zacapa area. This is a desert like area but during the rainy season in which we went it is not only hot but humid. After a long day working in opressive heat, you can't imagine the joy of returning to this lovely Hotel.
The rooms are quite clean, the air conditioners work wonderfully, good TV with some English channels and the staff was very nice, but wait! The best part was the totally awesome pool. Nice and cool, with 2 diving boards in the deep end (about 16ft.) and a water slide that the kids will love. I stayed there for 5 days and really looked forward to that pool at the end of each day.
I thought the restaurant had the best food out of 3 in the area we tried. The price of the stay was very reasonable.
The downsides: no one speaks any English so speaking Spanish is a must. The showers were sometimes short of hot water.
All in all, it is a great hotel for a remote area of a 3rd world country. If anyone ever has a need to stay over in that area of Guatemala, do not hesitate to stay in this wonderful hotel. You won't be sorry.
