    This is definitely the place to stay if visiting the Rio Dulce area. Located on the river it's the perfect place to just relax on the dock and take a swim in the river. Or you can hitch a boat ride into town or kayak...More

    Reading the reviews brings back memories. I had drinks and diner at the roundhouse in March of 2013. I arrived by sailboat. I can't help but wonder if the master Dutch sailor one traveller mentioned was the man I was sailing with. He was Dutch...More

    The roundhouse has a fantastic location on the river, making it a great base to explore the Rio Dolce from (by kayak, which you can hire for 30q per person per day). The accommodation is pleasant, but very open, so not ideal if you are...More

    To me, Round House is, by itself, the reason to stay in the Rio Dulce area. I can see why people stay longer than they thought they would. It's just pleasant, quiet, simple, well-managed, well-designed. You can actually take a nap in a hammock here...More

    Yep, 2 seperate showers and 2 separate toilets to share. But you can always jump in the river. Clean water and just as refreshing as the showers. I did it for 5 months too.
