We stayed at one of the large bungalows at Johnny's place. There is a restaurant and a few swimming pools, and it's right on the beach. It seems to really take off on weekends when locals (maybe not that local, vacation Guatemalans?) come and enjoy volleyball, dancing and such. It is quieter during the week. The bar/restaurant is perfect for...

Clean and well kept hostel with a wide choice of rooms. Good food and fantastic smoothies. The only downside is salty water in the common shower for the dorm, but I guess in this situaton you get what you pay for - a bed in the dorm is really cheap! Otherwise recommended.

Hotel: it's very nice, there are different kinds of rooms. Look for the one that best suits your needs, and don't hesitate to ask the staff which one is the best for you. My room had AC and private bathroom. It was very clean and comfortable, I really liked it. It was #10. I'd recommend calling instead of emailing them....

Feel good "Buena onda" place right on the beach of Monterrico's coast. Breathtaking sunsets made my romantic trip a real pleasure. The food is great. After 3 weeks there where still things that surprised us on the menu. Thanks for everything my new friends.

My partner and I stayed in a private room with aircon, pretty exy for what it was but we were comfortable enough. The food at Johnny's is fantastic, the only issue we found was that the staff (mainly restaurant staff) were quite rude, we stayed for two nights and then had to move to another hostel down the road (Hotel...

There are plenty of great things about this place: -free drinking water -nice beachside location -nice swimming pool -inexpensive rooms However, if you are looking for a relaxing and peaceful beach retreat, this is NOT the place for you. (If you want a beach party, no need to read further). I had read through reviews so as not to be...

Everything was very basic and spartan as we expected. This is not a luxury resort however things were acceptable. The swimming pool was nice but shallow, good for just floating around in. The one complaint was how the dining staff tried to take us on the cost of the breakfasts. Even after confronting them they still tried to over charge.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights from Sunday until Tuesday in the dorm. The breakfast was small but nice and the shared pool was lovely and we had it to ourselves most of the time! The hostel was right on the beach and has a great happy hour..or 3 everyday from 3-6.

A great place to visit during the week as it is quiet and the pool very inviting. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The food was brilliant and they understood my needs as some one with Coeliac disease. Very charming staff as well. I would think a can of "Off" in the rooms would be welcomed as the mosquitoes...
