We have stayed here several times and always enjoy the hospitality. Our groups have always felt safe and taken well care of at Posada Delfin. Gus recently added Thai food to his his restaurant menu. It's delicious and authentic. Try the Thai!

This is a wonderful clean, comfortable hote right on the waterl! The boat ferry dropped us off right on the dock of the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and colorful. The food is excellent. Gus is a wonderful owner who really is concerned with the comforts of his guests. We have stayed here twice and will again.

Very nice room, food, and staff, as well as pleasant common areas with books and couches for all. The owner, Gus, spent a long time in the US and is very interesting - listen to his stories if you get the chance! Maybe ask him about the photo of himself as a kid with a young Sugar Ray Robinson.

Posada El Delfin is a tad down the street from the docks, so you can get away from that circus by just walking a bit. At the public dock you will meet harmless touts who will want to show you the scene; I would suggest just politely brushing them off. El Delfin has its own dock so you can make... More

We happened to arrive at Livingston during a great rainstorm that shut off the power in the whole town for 40 hours or so. We originally stayed in a different place, however it was very difficult without power (especially when there is nothing to do outside due to the storm). We arrived at Posada el Delfin, which was one of... More

We have stayed in some great places in our 5 week trip but this has to be the best. We only booked 2 nights but loved it so much we stayed for 4. Occupying a dreamy position on its own pier over the river and designed so that all the common areas catch the river breezes, it is a wonderful... More

I spent 2 nights at Posada El Delfin in September. The staff was very friendly and caring and the owner, Mr Gus, shared his knowledge with us. It was very interesting to hear his interesting stories and insights about Livingston and Guatemala. The room was very pretty and from the window we had a lovely ocean view. The grounds of... More
