Very Good 8.0
Great family hotel - VERY remote and secluded
The pool at this hotel is AMAZING. We swam all day each day. There's a bar/restaurant and the food and drinks are good but pricey - by far the most we've paid in Guatemala. Make sure you've planned your transportation to/from in advance because arranging transportation is not something they do much of there (again unlike elsewhere in Guatemala). But, once I found a company, they happily called and made the arrangements. The beds were incredibly hard and you had to go to the office to switch out towels every time you needed a dry one - a small inconvenience, but drove me crazy. El Faro is clearly trying hard to be high end and the property is very nice, but there is no access to anything else unless you have a car. They didn't offer a shuttle or anything to the little town and the few other places we read about (and we didn't ask). They did stuff like mow the yard right by the restaurant the whole time we were eating breakfast. Again, a small thing, but there's a pricey meal that wasn't enjoyed. I got the feeling that we were among the very few who ever went there without their own car. The wifi is good. We loved the little porches off every room. We sat out there as much as possible. Fantastic view!
