We spent four nights at Nefry's and absolutely loved it. The rooms were clean and we had everything we needed. The refrigerator was awesome along with the purified water tank! Jaime directed us to some local places that had fantastic food and the fruit at the market was some of the best that I have ever eaten (thank goodness for... More

Worst stay of our three weeks in Belize. Moldy, Damp rooms. Old,worn scratchy linens and towels. Never had hot water when we needed it. The shower curtain was rediculous. It was an actual valance curtain for a window that didn't meet in the middle, letting water run all over the floor. More like a 10 minute walk though a ghetto... More

We stayed at Nefry's for one night and found it a good, comfortable place a little bit out of the way in San Ignacio, which is good because downtown can get noisy. Still, it's only a 5 minute walk to the main drag. A little hard to find, I'd recommend asking the hotel for directions. The beds were comfortable, the... More

We spent 4weeks here with our staff from the UK doing volunteer work and we couldn't have wished for more. Nefrys is family run and this family is second to none. Nancy & Jaimie and their beautiful kids couldn't have done more for us. They organised trips, transport and doctors and assisted all of us with our individual requests whatever... More

We stayed at Nefry's Retreat over the New Year, found it to be very comfortable, and the owner very helpful on advice in the area and any other queries we had, even offering his personal phone when needing to call my bank from overseas regarding a stolen credit card which was lovely. It is a 5 minute walk from the... More

We spent 7 nights at Nefry's this December and were happy with our stay. The rooms were a bit old, but very clean, and the owners were happy to help with advice about the area. They had begun renovations during our stay, so the rooms will likely be improved for the next travelers. The location was a short (5 min)... More

The location is good, just a bit out of the way. It is secure and the room was very clean. We are returning customers. The room had a little kitchenette which turned out to be perfect. The staff was helpful and friendly and pretty laid back as we planned to stay for 1 night and ended up staying 3. I... More

My wife and I made a last-minute reservation at Nefry's intending to stay one night but ended up extending our stay to 3 nights. It is a small, intimate location and the owners live on site with their family. The rooms are nice with very comfortable beds, an in-room hot and cold water dispenser with free instant coffee and plenty... More

I stayed at Nefry's Retreat for two nights and I must say the place was exceptional. When I arrived I was greeted by the manager with such a warm welcome.
