Very nice breakfast buffet that starts at 6:30 am so you can get in/out in time for a 7:00 am tour. Buffet offers lots of the usual (scrambled eggs, bacon, lots of fruit, yogurt, cereal, cheeses, sliced meats, etc) PLUS several Guatemalan dishes which were...great to try and usually quite delicious. No lines, great wait staff service, everything was kept fresh, hot, and super clean. Looked forward to every breakfast we had here.More

My parents and I have been visiting the Real Intercontinental Guatemala for the past 15 years. We've been customers ever since. We started with St. Honoré Cafe then they closed it and we stared going to The Market, everything went well until the cut off...they had after mid Pandemic say... less than a year ago, many people were fired and most of the good ones who really had CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS are no longer working at The Market, and the ones they have now REALLY LACK OF CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS I will cut to the chase: I decided to take my parents to The Market today Dec 15th 2022 because we were celebrating my Dad's birthday. We ate, the three of us had breakfast (buffet) we had our meals...I asked for the check, I took a look at it just to make sure everything was ok...but unfortunately it was not. They charged me something I asked for (which I've been asking for the past several years) and the waiter and the restaurant manager Cesia at the moment told me THAT THE CHEF DECIDED to charge me because he felt like it. So I asked Cesia if she could ask the Chef to come by my table so we could converse this incident. He took a while... I had to go and look for him... and he said that he had to charge it because that's the way it is now, he was not open to talked it over...his body language said it all (arms crossed) Cesia was with him at the time both of us were conversing and I explained to them a few things...didn't make the effort to solve the problem...so I said to them ''WELL LIKE EVERYTHING IN LIFE...THINGS COME TO AN END, AND THIS HOTEL AND RESTAURANT HAVE TO AN END FOR MY FAMILY AND I, THAK YOU'' I could sense and notice THE CHEF AND CESIA didn't care, they just said: ''well have a great day and thank you for your business'' very scripty... AWFULL SITUATION TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE (which they should be looking out for since The Market has been quite empty nowadays) BTW I went to the front desk to ask for Mr. Sierra (I believe he's GM at the moment) but he was busy at the moment. If you've read this far, I appreciate it! Just so you know...they charge the Tip - 12% which is something ilegal to do in Guatemala. You are not entitled to leave tips anywhere in the country, it's optional!More

As this restaurant is rated #4 in Guatemala City I had expectations for it to be quite good. Unfortunately, the chef did not know to prepare a steak medium rare: 1st one came out well done, 2nd one rare; 3rd attempt was ok after I...explained to the chef what medium rare was. Service-wise: - no steak knife was provided until i asked one myself - a tip of 10% was added automatically to the total w/o notice; given the experience i had w my steak, they agreed it was not appropriate and the automatic tip was taken off (a bit a pity i had to mention this) - the bill showed the wrong amount for the steak; after showing the correct price as listed on the menu to, i assume, the F&B manager, the bill was correctedMore
