Fodor's Expert Review Amatique Bay Resort & Marina
Puerto Barrios, Izabal, 18001, Guatemala
Sprawling resorts like this waterfront complex are the newest trend in Guatemala. The beautiful natural surroundings are somewhat diminished by all the effort to make things luxurious. The impressive pool, complete with a replica of a Spanish galleon that shoots water from its cannons, has slides for children and an island bar for adults. Few of the sunny suites have views of the ocean, but they are equipped with everything you would find in a well-furnished apartment, including washers and dryers.
- many activities, always something going on
- fun for kids
- large numbers of day visitors from cruise ships
- luxury can seem overdone here
