Welcome home! No matter how many days you've stayed here you'll want to spend more time with John, Karen and their lovely family. One of the most welcoming and friendly hotels I've ever seen in my life all over the world. The place where I would definitely spend vacation with my family. Good luck guys! See you in a while....

Although the keepers of the accommodation were nice in the absence of the owner, the relationship price/quality was low and it's far from the city center. The property it's not well maintained and breakfast was done using dirty oil, you could see black spots of dirty oil in the eggs. We were almost alone in the property during our stay.

We booked Vecchia Toscana from Guatemala City because of the very good mentions here in TripAdvisor. We were not exactly disappointed but had to correct our expectations quite a bit. The ten minutes walk to Livingston town is more like a half hour, by night and on a beach that is not there anymore. Take your flashlight with you. The...

We arrived on a day that due to two big storms, the entire town of Livingston did not have power for two days. Our hosts Daniela and Ivan did a really good job of setting us up with three rooms and making us feel welcome. We had a really nice candle light dinner that night, food was impressive and the...

We had a wonderful 2 nights at Veccia Toscana. Danielle was an exceedingly warm and helpful host and a very good cook. Our family of 4 shared a generous room with 3 beds and private bathroom just off the pool. The room was air conditioned which made an enormous difference in our ability to get a good nights sleep in...

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights during our honeymoon. Lovely place, for so many reasons! The Italian couple that own the hotel (Daniela and Ivan) are very sweet and helpful (even lent us screwdrivers when my husband's phone died on us), and make EXCELLENT Italian food, from scratch. The room itself was cozy, and right on the beach....

This is probably the best hotel I stayed on my visit to Guatemala. The service was outstanding and not overpriced. The owner was very nice and friendly. We were not planning on staying here but a a local recommended it and we couldn't be happier.

This spot was perfect. We would have liked to stay longer but couldn't. We had a lovely caban facing the ocean. The breeze was lovely and very refreshing. The sound of the waves put us to sleep. We woke to a beautiful sunrise. There is a rooftop deck as well. We loved being located in a local neighbourhood.The owners were...

This lovely resort on the sea has it's own dock where you can take a private boat or you can walk along the shore to town. We have beautiful gardens, a large pool, and clean rooms with air-conditioning. Our chef creates a unique menu each night with a fusion of Mayan, Garifuna, and Italian influences. Breakfast is always free! We can arrange tours for you during the day to kayak on the Rio Dulce, soak in hot springs, explore the waterfalls of Siete Alteres, or snorkel in the coral reefs of Belize all within less than an hour of our resort.
