You can see a lot of monkeys in the hotel. if you are lucky, you can also see scarlet macaw and other animals. The room is big and clean. Breakfast is not buffet style. Our tour package includes breakfast so we could only order one breakfast. Not nice comparing with the buffet style breakfast of other hotels in our tour... More

The bungalows are so nice with wonderful rainforest showerhead in bath. Also great porches facing into the lush landscaping. Lot of howler monkeys; they can start a little early in the morning -- so that is a matter of personal preference (we liked it). Also, there are quite a few steps to bungalows; which is a consideration for some.

Had a great time at Byblos. Music, foosball, pool, Jenga and drinks a-flowing. Short walking distance from Tulemar/Buena Vista luxury suites. Met the towns namesake who was a hoot. Played a serious game of Jenga and his quick eye and push makes me laugh every time I think about it.

If you love nature and the sound of Howler monkeys in the early morning then this is a great place to stay. If you don't care that the shower in your jungle bungalow doesn't drain well, then you will be OK in this older resort. We really enjoyed the hotel despite the maintenance issues. Nature was all around. The pool... More

Visited this hotel with my father, my brother and my nephew. Hotel is very old hotel, the rooms are decrepit (the pics online are definitely not a fair representation of reality) and the restaurant terribly expensive (they made us pay $7 dollars for 4 burnt slices of bacon). On the bright side, the location is great. I will not however... More

Great property with tropical foliage and wildlife including monkeys, birds, etc. wonderful staff in reception and dining! Rooms need some updating but they were clean and had a nice balcony with ocean view. Close to park, beaches, restaurants, walkable but we had a rental car and drove mostly.

Thank SeanfromFL
