We stopped here for lunch. The portion sizes were great. Our baked chicken was almost half a chicken, lots of native food. Service was great. And the bonus prize, they have very clean restrooms which can be very hard to find in parts of Guatemala.

Zacapa is hot. And this place has great AC. That was probably the most important thing for me. In addition to that, the staff is AMAZING- such nice, caring people, and so much fun! We were there for about a week and now know many of the staff by name- can't wait to see them again! The food is good,...

Simple rooms, very clean, good service, internet is not strong, but no problem with that, close to the frontal area of the hotel, works very well. Good food and very good juices of natural fruits. Nice area in middle of the green. I went there during the WOOD MIZER conference last year, and the local is amazing. Crossing the street,...

I stayed at El Atlantico during a business trip to Zacapa. It is one decent option in an area where there are very few. The hotel has what one needs for a short stay. I just think that some renovations in the rooms would make it look nicer. For example the bahrooms can use some painting and a few things...

I had a kickass omelette here for lunch. It was huge and had chorizo, peppers, and onions in it. Came with warm, delicious corn tortillas and beans and rice. One of the best meals I had in Guat, seriously. Other people had the chicken, rice, beans lunch special, which came with coffee, flan, and bread. So much food no one...

Have stayed there two times in the last two years. Both times the stay was very enjoyable. Will be back. Gated area away from highway noise. Second floor is the best rooms but no elevator. Laundry available at front desk.

We stopped in Rio Hondo one night as a matter of necessity on the way to Guatemala City. There was nothing inherently wrong with this hotel - the rooms were clean, the staff friendly, and a decent swimming pool. It was just very average and lacking in atmosphere. It was kind of like a family holiday park with lots of...

Very reliable place. Felt very welcomed and safe. The meals were all delicious. The room always cleaned. Staff very friendly. In Zacapa you could not ask for more. Internet connection only works well by the pool and main building.

It's always a pleasure to stay at this wonderful hotel on the Atlantico Highway in Rio Hondo, Zacapa, Guatemala. The hotel staff are very attentive, the pools are beautiful (children's pool too) and the children's playground is grand. This time we were 4 adults with children.
