Dear Mrs. Yuman, You, as Guatemalan citizens, living in the USA, thought you didn't need the email information we send to you "how to reach us and get boat service". So you got lost and spent much time to get a boat service. You arrived in Isleta de Gaia very late and in very bad mood.. The first time we...

This place is the worst experience of my Guatemalan stay. They overcharge for everything, room, food, services. The owner is rude and the place is dirty and run down. AVOID! We stayed because once you're there you have no other option but would never go back.

Most of them wasn't english speakers... and most of them made very good comments about Isleta de Gaia.... "overcharge", rude owner, dirty place... we notice you use exactly the same...

This small, friendly and no-nonsense hotel is the perfect getaway from Guatemala City or hectic life in general. This is not the place if you want to surf or do lots of activities, but perfect for winding down and walking on the beach. Rooms are rustic but have all you need. The bungalows along the beach front have beautiful ocean...

This place is not for everyone, but for us it was perfect. No air conditioning, no TV, no airplanes or traffic sounds. Just the sound of the pounding serf and breeze. Accessible only by boat. A perfect beach is right at the front door, and a small fresh water pool is right in front of your thatch roof cabin. The...

First and foremost, the service is remarkable. The owner showed us that a business transaction, specially for tourism, must be based on mutual trust. In an isolated spot, such as Isleta de Gaia enjoys, money should not be the only measure of economic success. Trust and creative solutions regarding payment works a long way for the owner and for us...

Charming and simple, this is a magical spot to enjoy sea breezes and surf at the door of your bungalow. The host is friendly, the fresh seafood delicious, and you have the beach to yourself. We walked the entire length of this tiny barrier beach island, watched fisherman at work, spoke with locals, and swam in the comparatively gentle surf....

This has been my 6th visit to Isleta de Gaia, located on Barra del Jiote near Las Lisas, Guatemala. It is about a two hour drive from Antigua on constantly improving roads and an additional 20 minute boat ride from the boat landing to the hotel.
