  • We were visiting for Easter, input, we noticed that photos do you enough favor to the place, is a small beach, with much seaweed, sea from 11 am quite turbid (dirty). The food of the place is very bad, a fairly limited menu, although each day they alternate him only change two dishes and then follow the same 6 saucers, service is disastrous, even without the people that serve is too slow, not once they took the plates of everyone at our table at the same time and the average wait was over one hour. Place quarters must make sure you go very tired to sleep because everything from the other rooms, is absolutely heard that quarters are small and uncomfortable, very damaged place. The good thing about the place is the trampoline in the sea is fun, the sea although turbid is almost a swimming pool and animation they put in very good Easter!

  • We visited Sand Bay in mid-March in family and attended us very well. We stayed at the hotel the rooms are clean, made of bamboo. The very rich food, waiting time longer but we always order in advance. At night it rained much and we could not leave. The weather improved the next day in the morning and we could swim, get on the water trampoline, play volleyball and use the kayak. At night, they put music for dancing, good atmosphere. The beach if it seemed to me to be too small. I would recommend it for a quiet weekend, but to take advantage of other sightseeing of puerto barrios.

Where to stay in Izabal

You're unlikely to find any accommodations in the village of Izabal itself. Your best bet is to stay just northeast, in nearby Mariscos, and visit Izabal on a day trip. If you want to enjoy the nature of Lake Izabal, stay north in the town of Rio Dulce.
