Stayed a night at this hotel, my first time to Guatemala. I was pleasantly surprised. the room was clean and spacious with a great view of the inlet overlooking the pool. I loved waking up to the sound of the tropical birds and looking at the inlet through the coconut trees. The food was fantastic. The Garifuna performance was the...

I'm just back home from a short trip to Livingstone, Guatemala traveling with two friends. We arrived in Livingstone, went straight to Hotel Villa Caribe, negotiated rates and checked in for two nights. Our rooms were very good; spacious, clean and judging by their appearance they have recently been refurbished. Airconditioning plus ceiling fans were standard in the rooms we...

I have never seen a ‘hotel’ room as dire as this one. It did not have a bed providing instead two children’s cribs which were totally unsuitable for adults. The curtains only covered half of the window which would have woken us at first light had we been able to sleep. The sheets and towels were old and torn. Cleanliness,...

Large rooms, decent food, comfortable beds. However the main attraction for this hotel is the location, right on the waters edge. We stayed in 4 hotels in Guatemala, and the staff were were the least friendly of all, I don' t know if this was a language issue or not. The restaurant had a nice position overlooking the Rio Dulce,...

I arrived by boat - the little islands of mangroves on the one hour boat trip have fantastic flocks of pelicans, cormorants and egrets. The hotel is well situated, the pool a delight with bright birds flying over my head and chirping away. From the pool I feasted my eyes on the palm trees, the abondant tropical vegetation, the flowers...

After a backpacking trip into Guatemala on the Rio Dulce, this hotel was a great treat. It is located at the mouth of the Rio Dulce River and in the harbor town of Livingston. We had a beautiful cabana that overlooked the pool, the river and the bay. The grounds were well kept with all the bounteous flowering plants the...

The best: magnific views to the sea from your own room. You wake up with the sun in front of you :-) The hotel is inside Livingston town, so you can go for a walk or to have dinner without any problem. Breakfast buffet really poor. I recommend you to go by boat from Livingston to Rio Dulce town, really...

The hotel is just on the sea, and our room has a lovely view. The room is nice (nothing luxury) and the hotel is in the town "centre". The restaurant in the hotel is really expensive both for breakfast and for dinner, so just avoid it and luckily there is plenty of choice in walking distance.

The only place to in Livingston if you'll be there for more than 1 night. Place is expensive for the market, but you have a beautful place to call home in case it rains, which it does with great frequency in Dec- Jan.
