We had a fantastic stay here and would highly recommend this place to travellers that don't need fancy accomodation. A beautiful place right on the river, good food, very friendly staff, live music at night and plenty of activities and tours to choose from. My only regret is not staying longer. The rooms were basic but also very affordable. All...

El Retiro is an amazing place runned by local people. The location next to the river, the breathtaking surroundings, the delicious freshly made food (and really cheap for what you get!),great atmosphere ,.... everything is just perfect. It s a very clean and well maintained place. I can also highly recommend to book the tour to Semuc Champey, an unforgetable...

We were surprised by what we got for the price we payed. We stayed in a cabaña with shared bathroom, overlooking the valley and river below. Lanquin town was only a 10min stroll away. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, the showers were hot and there was good wifi in the restaurant. They also have a sauna. We did the Semuc...

We ate dinner one night and had drinks here a second. Checked out the rooms, but none were available--even so, they do laundry on site and we're happy to do some for us with 4 hour turn around. A lot of staff is Irish. Very lively place--we'd come here next time. People who we spoke to at dinner loved it.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights when visiting Semuc Champey. It is a great place to stay. We had a double room with shared bathroom- it was fine except a bit dirty floor (was kind of muddy there during that time because of rain, and the floor was not cleaned when we arrived). The huge plus for...

This is a nice Place to stay, a bit out of town and wifi is just working barely at one spot, but it is in a nice scenery. Downside, some of the staff does not speak any English. Unfortunately I was treated not fair, as everyone got a night for free if u book the tour to semuc champey here...

We had a very comfortable stay at El Retiro. Very easy to organise a day tour to Semuc Champey, and a number of other tours (zip-lining etc). Easy to organise a packed lunch. Buffet dinner on the expensive side (by Guatemalan standards) for those who won't eat much. Wifi non existent, no hot shower. Beautiful location with river running along...

Definitely stay here. We loved it. The buffet's they put on in the evenings are incredible, not to mention the amazing lunch boxes they pack for you the next day, the cookie (if they still do them) are the best I've ever tasted. We didn't book the tour here, we hitch hiked to Semuc Champey and went around by ourselves,...

The location is wonderful, and the staff are amazing. The food was great, and everyone was very helpful to organize tours. We arrived about half an hour before the tour for the day left, and they let us into our rooms early and made it very easy to join the activity tour on the first day. Would absolutely recommend!

I spent a few nights at the El Retiro and I couldn't choose a better place! The whole property is amazing! Right by the river and surrounded with green mountains.
