I actually felt like a queen.

Posted Sep 25, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Close to boats, shops, bank etc
Cons: Everything was fine.
Location: I go to Livingston once a year but don't usually stay at the Villa Caribe. But it was a late boat to get there and the Happy Fish restaurante was open
Our room was a bungalow,. the canopy and conch shell lamps ..... superb decorations. The balcony over the Rio Dulce and the ocean was breath taking. The beds are firm which is what I prefer for my back. We didn't eat there but have in the past. That is very nice also. They didn't speak much english to me but then again I didn't need anything much. The pool towels were so soft. The AC was wonderful.

Faded beauty with a great pool & view!

Posted Mar 21, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Pool, staff, safety, view!
Location: Casa Nostra (which we could never find), Buga Mama, just walking around. The boat ride on the way here from Rio Dulce was gorgeous!
This hotel is really well located, right in the center of Livingston, on the bay. Great views from the rooms and really lovely pool. Didn't try the restaurant ($$$) but really enjoyed our stay. By far the best place in Livingston.

Best hotel in Livingston. There may smaller botique hotels that would be just as good for a better rate, but they're difficult to find online and are usually full on the day you arrive. Villa Caribe is pleasant and clean, good view, pool and restaurant. Beds were clean but three star comfort.

Hidden treasure in Guatemala

Pros: Professional friendly relationship, more than a simple contact with guests has more value than anything else.
Location: I have to mention the excellent friendly, professional relationship with the breakfast/lunch waiter Edgar, he is the reflection of the facility.
Amazing, great, friendly, professional performance by all staff members, combined with a beautiful perfect vacation Hotel.

Relaxing Escape

Posted Mar 24, 2015 on Hotels
This is by far the nicest hotel in the city of Livingston. Not only does this place have an awesome pool to lounge by, it also has its own private sand beach with plenty of hammocks. Other than this private beach, we were not able to find any areas to swim in the ocean in Livingston. The next closest place to find a sand beach was Playa Blanca, which requires a 30 minute boat ride to even get to (so you have to pay for the boat plus a 20Q admission fee to use Playa Blanca). If you want comfort and relaxation, this is your place.

Great choice for Livingston overall

Posted Feb 3, 2015 on Hotels
This was our second stay at Villa Caribe. On the whole this is the best hotel in Livingston. The staff are great, the view incredible, the grounds nicely done. You pay a bit than other local hotels but you are assured of an overall positive experience. Having said that, there are two issues that for the price should be rectified: 1) The beds are single beds that are put together to form larger beds. For $120US a night the hotel could invest in toppers to negate the divide in the middle; 2) There is no good excuse for not having hot water at this price point. Warm is better than cold but a dribble of warm water does not replace a hot shower. Despite these two points if you are willing to pay the price this is one of the nicest places you will find to stay in Livingston.
