I stayed at El Rey for 9 nights in February 2014 and I would stay there again in a heart beat. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. The room was nice with great AC and nice hot water in the shower. The staff made sure the room was clean everyday and even tidied up a bit which I... More

I stayed at El Rey in November of 2013. I spent one night and I was on my way back to Belize City. The room and bathroom was very clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable. There was a flat screen television and coffee maker/ coffee in the bedroom. I sleep quite well and no noise throughout the night.... More

I would not stay here again. The room was ok, the location was also ok but nothing special and the management was not very helpful. The owners dog and all the other dogs in the neighborhood barked all night making for a crappy sleep. Next time I will just continue to San Ignacio and skip Belmopan all together. We were... More

Most unfortunately, not everyone in the world is honest. The Dog Firstly we do NOT own a dog and have NEVER owned a dog. Now I thought maybe he saw a stray dog or something, as Belize has those (no dog pounds in the country) but when I emailed Mr. Kerry to ask him, he dared to tell me that... More

Very friendly service. The room was pretty clean and the AC worked well but was pretty loud. We did have some ants in the room in the morning when we woke up. They were biting ants. Paid too much for what we got. Again the service was great though.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of nights in late October on our way from San Ignacio to Belize City. We stayed in one of the budget rooms. I really loved it because it was simple and uncomplicated but super clean and as a bit of a clean freak this suited me perfectly. It was dust and... More

i stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is located only a couple minutes from downtown. It is close to the embassies. I initially booked a standard room but they only had one left that was under a room which was under constructions. The staff moved me to a suite on the second floor. They were very helpful. The room... More

We spend 2 nights at the El Rey Hotel (El Rey Inn was the old owner) during our trip to Belize. It is located 10 mins walking from the bus station, walking straight through Belmopan park. The neighborhood is very quiet as the hotel is located in a residentiel street, so you can get a good rest. The rooms are... More

Two friends and I stayed at the El Rey Inn in Belmonpan (run by Nick and his beautiful wife, Shannon) for a few weeks. We stayed in the basic room due to our budget, and as the name suggest, it was a basic room, but clean and very comfortable. The shower was clean, had hot water and a good pressure.... More

We stayed at El Rey during the "business" portion of our most recent trip to Belize...we were mostly going to be checking on our family farm which was inland, so Belmopan seemed to be a decent locale...my main criteria that I gave my husband was that we had to have AC since we would be inland...and for that, I am...
