While looking for a getaway druing a long holiday weekend in Guatemala, my girlfriend and I stayed at the Mansion del Rio in Rio Dulce, Izabal Guatemala. This place was highly recommended to us by local and tourists. We called for reservations and at this point we did not know that various parts of the hotel were flooded and were not informed. After 5 hours of driving from Guatemala City to Izabal, we arrived at resort. We checked into a double-suite with an amazing view of the flooded river. Later on that day, the A/C unit in the room started leaking causing a mini-flood in our room. I called and spoke to customer service desk and manager requesting a change of room. They denied us the right to move to another room staying that no other rooms were avaialble. I called the reservations desk from my cell phone and I was told there were rooms available. Having prepaid, we had to stay over one night. During the night the ice that formed inside the A/C made an extrremely loud noise and kept us from sleeping all night. After several in-person complaints, we decided to leave the very next morning without being compensated in anyway for the inconveniences. The management did not care for our requests or offer any alternate solutions. Ah! did I mention that the so 'luxurious' resort does not have an adequate sewer system? Watch out for these falsy advertised resorts in the Izabal area. We ended up at the Amatique Bay Resort ~ certainly worth your time and money!
