    The stay was alright. The place was ok for the price. The only things were thin walls between bathrooms and no hairdryer. We would stay there again. What we would recommend is that the hotel invests in a light up sign outside. Since at night you can easily miss it if you drive fast, too dark.

    Great place to stay for business trips

    They need to keep the noise down early in the morning, we were working until late, and at 7 am they started cutting trees and using motor the noise was unbearable, why not at 9 am?

    Hotel in Retalhuleu

    This hotel was fine. The room was very adequate for its pricepoint. It was clean and had a decent bathroom. The room was a little dark as lighting was dim at night. Air conditioning present but not used, room had an overhead fan as well. Grounds are lovely and has a nice pool. Other reviews said pools but one is a private pool. A few lounge chairs. Office staff helpful. Our poor Spanish got us by. We would stay here again if in Rehu. No Wifi in room but free in outdoor lobby.

    Our stay in Hotel La Colonia was pleasant. The pool area was nice, and the restaurant served delicious food. The rooms did have air conditioning which was nice, but there were small things here and there around the hotel that could have easily been improved or fixed. For example, our bathroom had 3 lightbulbs above the mirror, the middle of which was shattered. An easy fix, yet one that went without. The shower's faucet handles keep coming away from the wall and the sink was clogged up with cigarette butts from previous guests. The restaurant was a bit expensive, but we appreciated the security and the amenities such as the pool and A/C.
