While I haven't stayed there as a guest, I have attended a few functions and parties at the Aguada. They have a great location, ice cold beers and one of the best pools for an afternoon dip. I highly recommend it for travelers and locals alike.

What a great time we all had at the Aguada a month ago! It was a birthday party, and we had the whole hotel blocked off because of it. The grounds are really nice, and yes, there is an agauda on site; a little pond with turtles and some fish in it. The party went fantastically, and the food and... More

All public areas were clean and well maintained, pretty gardens with pond and turtles! nice pool although you had to use your bath towels for the pool. We only ate breakfast there - which was not...

Nice 2nd floor room, but they have an ant problem. Nice pool and pond. Some huge iguanas hanging out there. 10 min walk to groceries, 30-40 min to restaurants. The in-hotel restaurant is pretty good. Weak wifi signal does not reach most of the rooms.

Thanks for your comments. We apologize for mother's nature issues with ants. We have had a serious ant issue not only at the hotel but all over Belize. They are trying to avoid the rain and run for cover. We do our best to control them but we can't fight mother nature. Note, the ants are a bit of a... More

Stayed here as part of a tour. The rooms are clean and the bathroom is mould free which is fantastic. They have comfortable beds - not as rock hard as the other places we stayed. Wifi is a bit slow and drops out every so often. Shower pressure is good and water is hot. Reception staff unfortunately is rude with... More

I have stayed here on several occasions. Everytime it has been almost excellent. There is some bug problems but far less than most places I have stayed at in Belize. The pool is excellent. Well maintained. The restaurant is good, more expensive than uptown but always good food. Service is excellent. The location is out of the way somewhat It... More

Thank you for your review. We do try our best with the bug issue in our area. It is hard when everyone including those with little legs are trying to get out of the rain. We continue to work on that issue. Thanks for staying with us. More

We stayed at the Aguada for a week. The rooms were really clean, air conditioned, and quiet. The pool was excellent, and there is a cute little pond full of bullfrogs, tadpoles, turtles, and plants, which provided us with entertainment. The hotel is in Santa Elena (the twin town of San Ignacio), but it is an inexpensive, short cab ride... More

We originally were booked at the Canal Pech Resort, but after one night, I begged to leave due to infestation of ants and little water pressure in showers. Although the view was beautiful, it wasn't worth the $$$. The restaurant was sub par and service was lacking. The hotel service was good. So we were recommended by ReMax agent John... More
