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....

I have tried for decades to keep the neighbour's animals away from the hotel, but with little success. These people are Mayans and don't think much of fences, etc. like we are accustomed to where we come from. What is one to do? Be angry and hostile towards them and create an atmosphere that makes living togerher, side-by-side in peace...

Good and bad here. The good: The location is amazing. Heaven. The grounds are well maintained. The food is good and not too expensive, all things considered. The staff is able & willing, although they speak no English. The bad: I think it comes down to Denny, as far as I'm concerned. The big problem was - he was not...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here as we pretty much had the run of the place, we had an upstairs room with a balcony overlooking the lake which was clean and spacious. The boardwalk into the lake is idyllic, the water is very clean and flat here so its heaven if you get it in these circumstances. Denny himself however...

My family and I stayed at Denny's in one of the beachfront chalets. The room was spacious and the A/C worked great! The bathroom is tiny and we had a little difficulty getting the hot water with the suicide shower! The resort setting along the beach is beautiful. We ate dinner out on the lake, and the food was good....

Denny's beach was a beautiful and comfortable place to relax and get away from the business of the city! Also very close to the worlds only natural hot waterfalls. The rooms have air conditioning and balconies with great views.

We stayed in the duplex (up and down) lake front cabin (#6 and 7). the cabin's were fine. i appreciated extra towels, and the wonderful view of the lake and sunset. Denny was super helpful, from accomodating our date change gracefully, to setting us up with activities. The hot waterfall is not to be missed! Denny gave us just enough...

What and amazing location - if you can get there by boat and not have to drive even better. The roads around the lake are challenging and the road to Mariscos where they pick you up was pot holed and a very slow road. Denny is a great host, his staff are wonderful and the cabins and units vary in...

Denny's is a lovely resort with a beautiful beach and grounds, and a rustic flair. It rained while we were there and the combination of the evening rain and gentle waves lapping the shore was so relaxing. A natural "character", Denny is interesting in his own right. He has an excellent cook and the fish/seafood was delicious. The staff were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Denny's Beach is a peaceful, tranquil place with the best beach in Guatemala. If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy nature and the native Mayan Indians in their natural way almost untouched by tourism this is the place for you. Also, the swimming is great and if you are worried about bug bites Denny's is for you as we have done away with them. Hiking, tours, horseback riding, and beach volleyball are just a few of the activities here at the beach. ... more   less

“email Denny - he is very responsive and will work with you. He worked with us when our trip was delayed. I recommend if it is busy season to be further away from the beach front. If its hot the kids are in the water really early.”
