Catamaran Island Hotel
Ranked #5 of 8 Hotels in Livingston
Reviewed 5 August 2017

This hotel was one of the best I stayed in on my Central American tour. The property is on an island, so it feels very safe and is very quiet. I slept like a baby in my cabin on the water. The sound of the waves was very soothing.
The cabins are big and have good showers with hot water. A/C works well. There is no wifi in the cabins, but you can get internet connection in the reception and bar area. The food in the restaurant is good.
I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here and had a wonderful, relaxing time. There are cabins all over this little island and they are very nice and super clean! The island also has a restaurant, a breakfast buffet and a bar at the pool. There is free wifi throughout the island and you can take a boat tour of Lake Izabal and see how the locals live on the Rio Dulce. I wouldn't stay more than a couple nights as the island is very small and you would run out of things to do. But, it's a great place if you just want to kick back and relax for a couple days.

This is a quaint older resort which is a collection or cabins. We stayed one night as part of our tour. Its older so dont expect modern decore. What it does have is great AC, comfy clean beds, a good shower and insect screens in the very generous sized rooms. Great swimming in the warm fresh water lake and a nice swimming pool.

These are rustic cabins on stilts over the water. They are far from airtight so you're likely to get visitors in the night. Nothing dangerous but insect repellent is advisable before bed. My room, India, did have a work table and plenty of light for my laptop. My guide asked for a room with good WiFi and India is right next to the access point, I'm told the WiFi doesn't reach all rooms. The remote for the air conditioner didn't work so I had to climb up on one of the beds to turn it on or adjust it.

There's no closet space except a couple of hangers on the wall. The room had two beds so I spread what I needed on the other bed.

On the positive side, the pool was clean and refreshing, the grounds pleasant but the dining room at four in the afternoon hot and steamy, lattice work walls letting in what breeze there was.. The food and service excellent though.

The morning dawned with pleasant coolish temperatures. Breakfast buffet was ample and well prepared. Service overall was courteous and prompt.

Room Tip: Ask for room with good WiFi signal.

Even though it was a fun hotel being reached by boat, I would not have chosen it.
The chalet type hotel were great, a feeling of adventure and camping in a superb surrounding, but,, the fact that you could not walk to the mainland and had to take a boat was not for me, I felt trapped, like a prisoner, obliged to eat at the hotel, not my kind of place, more a question of choice really

Room Tip: For family with children and lovers of water activities
