I went there to spend my nye and i had a great time while in Linvingstone. The location was just in the middle of everything, the accomodations were clean and gave you a nice sense of privacy, the food was on the average pricing for backpackers (a coffee for less than a euro and breakfast for 2 euros, and the...

This was my 2nd visit to Rios Tropicales and I'm glad I returned. The staff are friendly and helpful (especially the young girl who cleans and runs the reception), the property is clean and well looked after. I would definitely recommend.

We arrived here just before New Year. I cannot praise this place anymore. Melanie the girl who works/owns the hotel was amazing and their family run business is unique, clean, and more than affordable. They also own a restaurant across the road that makes one of the best thai curries outside of Thailand. Its a must if you goto Livingston.

Rios Tropicales is a good, safe and central located hotel in Livingston. Nice, friendly atmosphere. It is located on a 300 meters from distance from the doc. The only minus is the cold water... We paid 200 quetzales (20 euro) for a double room with private bathroom. A little bit expensive for Livingston but a good budget choice if you...

Answers were brief, advice was not provided... And I speak Spanish, as I am Spanish. The worst were thw rooms. Maybe we were unlucky, as I...

There is a roof terrace with views over across the water to the mountains and cute courtyard with hammocks to chill out and plan your day.The staff are very kind and welcoming, they will go out...

A very relaxed place in the center of Livingston with spotless rooms with shared or private bathrooms. Rooms set around a patio with plenty of chairs and hammocks for relaxing. The owners Roberto and Betty are very friendly and little sunshine Blanca will always greet you with that great smile of hers. The hotel is just passed customs so if...

This place is located on the main street not far from the dock. We took a room with shared bathroom as the ones with were all taken. The room was basic but fine. Would have prefered if they'd kept the door shut prior to our arrival - the mosquito netting on the windows was pointless as they were all already...
