As part of our family vacation to Guatemala, I took my wife and three kids to the Caribbean coast of Guatemala, namely the town of Livingston, and some beach and waterfall excursions. We did not want to do the 5 hour bus ride back to Guatemala City in one day, so we looked for places in the middle to spend... More

We are staying a couple of nights here. The facilities are great with several cool slides and rides. Two nice restaurants with limited menus, and snacks everywhere. Not much to do outside, but you will be happy for a couple of days. Great cable with Fox News included. A place with pupusas next to the pool is awesome. Pretty good... More

This is a great place to stay while in Guatemala. We based at the hotel and made day trips around the area. The food was good and the water slides were fun! Beds on the other hand were hard, which could be good for some. There is a disco bar on site at night that might be good for some... More

My family and I went here but we did not stay in the hotel. We only went for one day. It seems a bit expensive but it really isn't for the amount of fun you can have. The food was great and there were many different choices of food. There was a lot of people there but it never felt... More

If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway, Valle Dorado is the place. So where do I start? It is a recreational water park/resort about a 21/2 hour drive (by bus)from Puerto Barrios, Izabal and east of the Rio Hondo river. The property is private and very beautiful. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by friendly receptionists in the luxurious lobby... More

We stopped here on our way to Honduras, really in the middle of nowhere. A really nice hotel / watermark for locals, we and some drinks and a rest while or son took a dive in their pool. The place looks great and clean with lovely staff. We did not see the rooms.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa which was spacious, clean, and comfortable with wonderful showers. The food however was mediocre at best and the buffet was just cheap and disgusting. The "entertainment" was LOUD, annoying, and just bad unless you enjoy the bad auditions of American Idol. Then it is entertaining. The guys were standing stiff, the female singer could... More
