Recently I spent three days in Monte Rico (Saturday, Sunday and Monday). We visited Johnny's Place on Sunday morning. We got refreshing draft beer, later on we tried their Caldo de Mariscos which is a soup with fish and a lot of shrimps... Incredible!! And for dinner we got Chicken Pizza, it was delicious! Next day we order such exotic...

We arrived at Johnny's Place before check in. However, after lunch in the beautiful oceanfront dining area we were allowed to enter our air conditioned room 2 hours early. The young lady from the reception desk turned the AC on & left. The room was hot, but we didn't mind since we assumed it would cool off after the AC...

We stayed at one of the large bungalows at Johnny's place. There is a restaurant and a few swimming pools, and it's right on the beach. It seems to really take off on weekends when locals (maybe not that local, vacation Guatemalans?) come and enjoy volleyball, dancing and such. It is quieter during the week. The bar/restaurant is perfect for...

Clean and well kept hostel with a wide choice of rooms. Good food and fantastic smoothies. The only downside is salty water in the common shower for the dorm, but I guess in this situaton you get what you pay for - a bed in the dorm is really cheap! Otherwise recommended.

Hotel: it's very nice, there are different kinds of rooms. Look for the one that best suits your needs, and don't hesitate to ask the staff which one is the best for you. My room had AC and private bathroom. It was very clean and comfortable, I really liked it. It was #10. I'd recommend calling instead of emailing them....

Feel good "Buena onda" place right on the beach of Monterrico's coast. Breathtaking sunsets made my romantic trip a real pleasure. The food is great. After 3 weeks there where still things that surprised us on the menu. Thanks for everything my new friends.

My partner and I stayed in a private room with aircon, pretty exy for what it was but we were comfortable enough. The food at Johnny's is fantastic, the only issue we found was that the staff (mainly restaurant staff) were quite rude, we stayed for two nights and then had to move to another hostel down the road (Hotel...

The hostal Johnny's Place is a very nice location with friendly staff in front of Monterrico Beach. Rooms are nice and quiet. Yesterday I lost my Smartphone and the owner helped me to get it back. Cheers Mario ;-)

There are plenty of great things about this place: -free drinking water -nice beachside location -nice swimming pool -inexpensive rooms However, if you are looking for a relaxing and peaceful beach retreat, this is NOT the place for you.

Everything was very basic and spartan as we expected. This is not a luxury resort however things were acceptable. The swimming pool was nice but shallow, good for just floating around in. The one complaint was how the dining staff tried to take us on the cost of the breakfasts. Even after confronting them they still tried to over charge.

Our menu is varied with choices of appetizers, pastas, pizzas, seafoods, tacos, burgers, paninis, salads, streaks, grilled fish and desserts.
