Lonely Planet review
There's a good blend of tropical and modern themes going on here. Poolside rooms fill quickly, especially on weekends, so you might want to book ahead. You'll find it 4km northeast of town where Calzada Las Palmas meets the Carretera al Pacífico. Coming from Quetzaltenango or the south, ask the bus to drop you here to avoid backtracking.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Siboney and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Retalhuleu.

Bar La Carreta
For cocktails, check out this bar, next to the Hotel Astor.
Cafetería La Luna
In a new location a block off the plaza, this remains a town favorite for simple but filling meals in a low-key environment.
