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

Hey everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know that the workers at Aguada were amazing to us. We were a medical mission trip group from Indiana US. The hotel manager was in communication with our group leader and for a small fee we could come swim and use the WiFi after a long day of working in the hospitals.... More

The Aguada is operated by a wonderful Belizean/American family, the Butchers. Shalue Butcher manages it when she is not teaching at Galen (?) University and she does a great job of keeping visitors happy. The staff are ALL good people who seem happy at their jobs, and as helpful as can be. There's an excellent pool, A.C. in each room...

Our vacation to Belize was centered in Placencia, but we rented a car from Barefoot rentals in Placencia and took a side trip to Santa Elena to see the Maya temples in the area. We were totally awed by the hotel. After a long drive from Placencia we arrived at the Aguada at noon and after checking in decided to... More

Only stayed here one night but went back 3 times for meals. Accommodation is fairly basic but room (only a little extra for de luxe) was enormous and had a/c and tv, relative rarities on our trip around Belize, also a nice pool. The grounds are attractive with a large pond, birds and countless iguanas, some of them huge. Often... More
