All in all, the food was okay. You are sort of a captive to their prices once you get there, and everything is 15% more expensive than it should be. Still, a good atmosphere, and a good place to relax.

This is a wonderful place to relax and unwind right on the river. The atmosphere is casual and the menu offers a variety of food including local cuisine. The only downfall is that the bar closes at 9pm which is a little too early if you are staying a few days and are on holiday.

Tortugal is our favorite restaurant and hotel on the River. The setting is perfect, far away enough from the traffic congested town, right on the river, but you can walk into the town center in 20 minutes. It's beautifully decorated with a wide variety of accommodations, hot showers, and a great food. The menu offers a wide variety of choices and is always delicious. And the service is excellent. We love it!

We ate here a few times during our stay and everything we had was delicious. Sometimes meals at accommodation places where you have little choice but to eat there are disappointing - not the case here. Prices reasonable considering location and similar offerings in Guatemala.

We had El Cubano sandwichs with fries. These were wonderful. Great ambiance. The big dog who greets you is a dogo which is indigenous to Guatemala. He is harmless and sweet.
