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.

Set with an amazing view over the bay, this hotel has amenable staff, spacious rooms (with efficient AC) and a great pool area (the pool is a good size, at least 20 metres). We were going to stay two nights but ended up staying for four! The only downside was the food - breakfast was a luke warm buffet and...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly and the pool was really nice. We were in Livingston for 4 nights, and I don't think we could have handled it if we didn't have the awesome pool to chill out in, away from the hustlers and strange smells. The view from our 2nd floor...

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. My room was simple but clean and with a lovely view of the sea. However, I could hear the guests upstairs as they moved chairs, took showers etc. The restaurant serves good seafood and there is good Garifuna entertainment if there are groups in the hotel. Breakfast is disappointing, largely because the food...

My family and I travelled to Livingston in early July and had no other plans to stay anywhere else other than the Villa Caribe. As always, we received nothing but the best services from check-in to the last minute of our stay. Hats off to Manfred, who ensured that our stay and that of other visiting family members was nothing...

We stayed here for 3 nights during our round trip through Guatemala/Belize and we liked it a lot even if we did not like Livingston that much. Our bungalow was huge, clean and had a great view of the sea, so we would definitely recommend to go for a bungalow instead of a standard room. The garden and pool is...
