Denny's might have been great once, and it might be great again.
At this point Denny is not well, and neither is his resort.
The beach is supposed to be the best on Lake Izabal, and it might well be.
But if you let pigs, dogs, chickens, and ducks run around everywhere what you get is poop in the water. We stayed 3 days and I went swimming once; that was it for me.
The vaunted water ski boat is gone; two abandoned sailboats are moored at one of the docks. We spent well over an hour waiting on Denny's transport boat in Mariscos
while they rigged up a way to charge the aging boat battery.
The 12 year old boy who rakes the beach every morning obviously would be better at something else. The Manager (Denny's brother in law) ripped us off on the exchange rate. WiFi is pathetic, but that is the case for the whole region.
But, there are positives- the staff are very nice and the food in the restaurant is good.
Take a walk into nearby Punta Brava and meet the school teacher Edwin Xol- he came back from a nice UN job in NYC to start a middle & high school there. Meeting Edwin was worth all the "issues" at Denny's.More
