Take a boat ride from Rio Dulce station downwards the river, and end up in this lost paradise.
Located at the river ends next to the Caribbean.
This is being peaceful far from the busy world.
Great rooms with river and Caribbean View, great bathroom.
Luscious gardens for strolls and relaxing,
Take a beer sit on one of the many verandas and look the sunset over the caribean.
Really wonderful staff does everything to make your stay more convenient.
Absolutelutely recommend.

Room Tip: Cabana on seafront has absolute magnificent view.

The hotel is fine, but it could be better. The TV in the room is a 12 inch dated, not even flat screen TV. The A/C lacks a temperature control. All you get is a on and off switch. The restaurant is not as good and for the firs two nights I had to pay a higher rate because dinner was included. On the third night they offered a cheaper rate if I did not want dinner (as I said restaurant was not that good) so of course I took It and had a gear dinner at Casa Nostra.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have a good ocean view but rooms in the upper level mean more stairs.

We had a lovely room overlooking the best view to Rio Dulce. They welcomed us with a tasty Cocoloco that we drank on the nice balcony. Waking up to the wonderful scenery was amazing! Breakfast was ok but I don't recommend dinner. No wifi in the room, only at reception.

Livingston can only be reached by boat and is very different from the rest of Guatemala. The hotel amply reflects this unusual and charming location. Set above the esturay of the Rio Dulce it has wonderful views across the water. Below the rooms is a swimming pool and a beach whilst the town is on the doorstep in the other direction.
The rooms are a good size, have a/c, a balcony and are otherwise well appointed.
The evening of our stay the restaurant was offering a good and varied buffet and there was a local folk group offering entertainment.

Stayed here last night for one night as part of a tour. Quirky might describe it !! It was clean and our room looked over the water and pool.

Ate in restaurant for dinner, this was fine. We did have our tour guide with us.......not sure if it made a difference ??

Breakfast was ok.........not the best on the trip though .

We didn't stay at this hotel but we did eat dinner here. It's a lovely spot and the breeze on the terrace was really pleasant. The hotel restaurant is luxurious and we were excited to eat there at first. However, the service was slow. We were the only ones there but they took forever to take our order and bring us the check. The food was also some of the worst we had on our trip, and the prices were higher than most places. I would recommend it for the atmosphere but not for the food.
