We visited their lovely restaurant for lunch and IMMEDIATELY canceled our reservations in the loud concrete bunker of a hotel down the street. Lovely little cabanas interspersed with beautiful plants and mature coconut palms. Being on the less crowded end of the beach it was "muy tranquilo" and a nice family place with two pools (one for kids/parents, another for adults). The Italian food with a seafood flair was good and filling. As for the heat in the rooms, just going to bed under the fan after a nice swim at about 10 pm did the trick, as the sea breeze kicks in about that time to cool things down. Magdalena and her staff were always helpful and gracious (love the agua frescas de jamaica) and be sure to ask for a mangrove tour with the fabulous Elias. As the only English speakers on a busy weekend I can only say the Latinos know how to really relax, and this place has a hammock on every porch! Falling asleep while listening to the boom of the surf will probably be one of our favorite memories of our Guatemala vacation. :)

Room Tip: Choose the cabanas as close to the beach as you can get, even next to the restaurant is very quiet.

I loved this little hotel. It was clean and comfortable. The staff was kind. They were so helpful and pleasant. The lounge chairs on the beach under the shade were perfect. The pool was comfy and shaded. The fish key chain was a sweet touch. Restaurant was nice but not perfect.

The beach location here was lovely. The pools were nice to hang out at during the middle of the day when the sand was too hot. The food was good. But, the rooms were incredibly hot at night. I recommend a hotel with AC if you are planning to go to Monterrico. Otherwise, be prepared for the heat.

I was once a backpacker, and by those standards this place is 5 stars. Alas, not a backpacker anymore, hence it gets 3 from me. Be ready to get sandy, it's right on the beach, and right next to the turtle sanctuary where they release turtles every day at sunset for some months of the year (oct- mar?), the 2 pools are nice, medium size, water not heated but Monterrico is hot so it's ok, even for little ones. But the pools are deep, no kiddie pools. Rooms are sparse, with mosquito nets, fans, no AC, no TV, old shower curtains, thatched roofs, hammocks outside on balcony. Nice and quiet, good for families. Definitely felt like we were roughing it a bit, but it was nice anyway. No reception desk, staff are pleasant enough, food at the restaurant is quite good.

We spent two days there and were the only clients! The place is lovely - rustic and colourful bungalows right by the ocean - but the extra details that would make a wow are lacking. The staff do the minimum required (absolutely no proactivity, they never asked if we were ok or offered anything), the food is just average, there are no cushions on the wooden chairs, no music in the restaurant. The power went out the second night an never came back the day after - at least we had a candle in the room - which ended up as an evening in our hot bungalow, all windows closed, waiting for the storm to pass! The tour scam As soon as we arrived, two guys came to our bungalow to offer us a mangrove tour and a walk to see the turtles in the beach at night. I was interested to do these tours and one of them identified himself as a worker at Cecon (the organisation working for the conservation of the turtles). I accepted too fast, without checking at Cecon first, and ended up paying 3 times the prices (150 Q per person instead of 50 Q with Cecon). The mangrove tour at 5:00 in the morning was very nice thought, but we never made it for the tour on the beach because of a big thunderstorm that night. I was quite mad the day after when I asked at Cecon the price of a mangrove tour. The guy had lied to us about working at Cecon. After I booked the tour, I asked about these guys at the hotel and have been told they were honest. Yeah right! They just shouldn't let them in the first place, but maybe the get their cut out of it...
