We just stayed at the roundhouse and it was EXCELLENT. Danni picked us up in their boat from Livingston and took us to the lodge. As soon as we got there we were enchanted by the tranquil setting and amazing lodge.
The hospitality of Danni & Chris immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Danni is really knowledgeable about Guatemala and gave us loads of great tips for the rest of our trip.The family style dinner was delicious and great value. This was great for socialising with the other (really nice) guests too.
We spent some time relaxing in the hammocks by the river - an idyllic setting to watch the local fisherman by the river. The next day we kayaked along the river to the aguas calientes.
After our stay they took us in their boat for a reasonable fee all the way to our next hostel.
Even though it is out in the jungle there were hardly any bugs, the whole place was really clean and comfortable. There were even 3 really friendly family dogs.
A stay here would be a great addition to your trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Roundhouse is a social place with family-style dinners. We're located right on the beautiful Rio Dulce in the rain forest. The canyon, caves and hot springs are all nearby. Swim, hike, kayak, sunbathe or just take a hammock and watch the river life. We've got a great book exchange and enough hammocks to read. Or if you're up for a drink: there is also a well-stocked (Tequila!) bar. ... more less
