We came to the Finca Tatin in a group of 12 people. The whole staff cared so much about us, we had a great time. Even there are differences in between the rooms, they all are really nice. The setting in the jungle is breathtaking. Thank you very much!!

Finca Tatin is the most wonderful place to stay in I encountered on my trip to Guatemala. The location is amazing, the staff friendly and easy going (but not intrusive), the food fine and plenty (home style family dinners are served around 7.30 p.m.). Try the crepe with fruit for breakfast, they are really tasty and big! We had the...

The place is very unique and interesting. The hotel is located by the Rio Dulce river hidden in the jungle, so approaching it by the river you can see the dock (quay) only. Stepping into the place you can discover the hamak relaxing zone, charmy little houses in the jungle (be carrefull of bugs, it is real jungle) and even...

The most enjoyable part of my stay was the river. Sitting next to it swimming and Kayaking . Its a great place to chill out in a hammock and read a book. I feel the staff are a little disinterested and not overly welcoming but are helpful and accommodating when asking for information . They also responded very promptly to...

Great place to stay right on the river with friendly staff. The area along the rivers tatin and dulce is gorgeous. The bungalows are very simple (we stayed at Mariposa - river view). If you arrange your arrival beforehand, they'll pick you up from Livingston. They also have kayaks that you can rent, and a rope swing to jump from...

Finca tatin hotel was my favourite place in Guatemala. It's based on the rio dulce river which is great for swimming and kayaking. The family style dinner was amazing, lots of beautiful food. This hotel is a great place to relax, with friendly staff and a chilled out atmosphere. We also seen lots of cool native animals. Would highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our stay at Finca Tatin. In fact, it was one of the more enjoyable and memorable parts of our latest trip to Guatemala. Although it is a little harder to get to, it is well worth the extra effort. Hiking, kayaking, visiting waterfalls, swimming in cave pools, going to Livingston, and more. There is plenty to do,...

We stayed there for a week and could have easily spent another one. I don't think I ever saw a hotel with so much heart, it almost leaves nothing to complain about. They got great food, excellent services and incredibly nice personnel. What I also enjoyed was the variety of animals living in and around the Finca. The atmosphaire of...

We stayed here for four nights in the Pelicano bungalow. What a fantastic time we had- definitely a highlight on our month long trip in Guatemala. The location is so special with much of the site built over the river on wooden planks. This allowed us to see crabs, turtles and birds going about their usual day. We spent a...
