    Beautiful location and use of kayaks. No phone in room so to order room service you need to go out to hotel restaurant to order..ecen in pouring rain! No lamps, no internet service, even close to office.

    This place is even better than I expected, i looked forward to coming back after our activities. The security of the gate when u come in the parking kit Andy the quitness of the overall resort is great. Wish we had stayed more days! The staff is ok, not super friendly but polite. There is no wifi in the room, only common areas, but really that was good for family time.

    Very accommodating hotel because I got there late but they were happy to open the gates after I called to let me in. Beautiful hotel by the Rio Dulce, only wish is that they have Wi-Fi and a stronger hot water system.

    The best part is location. It is a lakefront property with a beautiful view of the lake from its pier and walk paths. It's family friendly. It is close enough to downtown Rio Dulce by car and far enough to spend a quiet weekend at the hotel. The room has a bit of humidity but that seems inevitable. The bathroom seemed dated but clean. The staff was friendly and courteous. Overall it was a nice stay.

    Gem on the Rio Dulce

    WOW - we just Loved Banana Palms. Room was clean, and spacious. The property is just lovely on the banks of Rio Dulce. The open air restaurant can't be beat for it's view, service and food. We are planning to return. Very safe property, and just a lot of fun for couples or family. The pool was just lovely, and once in the pool, it felt like an infinity pool, as you could see the river beyond. Service staff were just wonderful.
